The Relaxing Powers of Essential Oils for Sleep
Sleep is essential for overall wellness. However, sometimes it feels impossible to quiet the mind before bedtime, especially if you’re checking texts, posts, stories, and tweets in front of a TV. All those screens, screens, screens instantly sabotage the peace of mind you need to fall asleep.
It’s time to unplug to recharge. You can do it...
Ditch your devices an hour or two before bedtime, draw the curtains, lower the room temperature (60 – 67 degrees), and use relaxing essential oils such as lavender, valerian, and bergamot to set the calming mood. Aromatherapy before bedtime induces vital, restorative sleep that helps the mind and body heal.
Essential Oils for Sleep: How Do They Work?
Aromatherapy has been used for thousands of years to support mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Essential oil scents derived from plants influence our mood, memory, and overall wellness due to the powerful connection between the olfactory system (sense of smell) and the brain.
The olfactory system begins in the nose and continues to the brain, where our daily smells are processed, influencing our mood and behavior. Essential oils stimulate the olfactory system, which connects to the limbic system—the part of the brain that controls breathing, blood pressure, heart rate, hormone balance, memory, and stress levels.
In short, essential oils produce both physiological (body) and psychological (mind) benefits, including relaxation. Many sleep-deprived people have turned to aromatherapy as a natural sleep aid versus risky OTC sleep meds with dangerous, dizzying side effects.
Aromatherapy as a Sleep Aid
Aromatherapy is alternative medicine that uses plant oil aromas (smells) to promote relaxation, a sense of well-being, and overall healing—a trifecta of health-changing benefits.
Specific scents such as lavender, bergamot, and valerian before bedtime deliver all-over calm, resulting in restful sleep and reduced fatigue. Combined, the essential oils create the perfect, calming solution for a deeper sleep.
