Sleep is one of the most important aspects of health, yet most of us don’t get nearly enough. Stress, electronic devices, and racing thoughts are a few reasons why approximately one-third of Americans don’t get adequate shut-eye. Fortunately, there are natural ways to combat those restless nights, including the use of fragrant essential oils. Let’s explore 3 of the best essential oils for insomnia and how you can use them to sleep like a baby tonight.

Lavender Oil: Made from the essence of lavender flowers, this popular essential oil is highly effective as a natural remedy for insomnia. Studies revel that diffusing lavender oil in the air at bedtime can improve sleep quality by 20%. Whether you spritz a whiff of oil in the air or dab a few drops on your wrists, the delicate aroma of lavender may help you get that vital slumber.

Roman Chamomile Oil: Fixing yourself a hot cup of chamomile tea is a soothing way to sail into bedtime, but how about channeling the healing power of this herbal oil on your skin? According to holistic health experts fragrant flowers are well known for gently calming the nerves and soothing stress and tension.

Sandalwood Oil: Strong and earthy yet sweet, sandalwood oil has a calming effect on the mind. Sandalwood oil may also have the power to stimulate your brain’s production of melatonin, a natural chemical that helps you drift into a restful sleep.

This trio of essential oils is a much healthier option than a sleeping pill and may help you get the rest you need. Ylang ylang, bergamot, and cedarwood are other essential oils known for their calming properties. Experiment and choose the scent that relaxes your senses. Then, dilute your chosen fragrance with a base oil like sweet almond and apply to the areas where you feel most tense. A couple of drops on the temples or forehead go a long way to ease you into dreamtime. Better quality sleep is possible with a little help from Mother Nature.
