Sleep Easy with Essential Oils



We’ve all experienced sleepless nights for various reasons. Fortunately, many essential oils contain properties that can relax both mind and body, enabling you to fall asleep quickly and sleep more soundly. Sleep plays a major role in restoring and healing the body and in mentally and emotionally processing events of the day. So regular, deep sleep is vital!

Here are a few essential oil combinations and applications to help you unwind at the end of the day and prepare for a good night’s sleep!
doTERRA Children's Calmer

Calmer Restful Blend Roller promotes a serene atmosphere, allowing bedtime to be peaceful. Rolling Calmer onto the bottoms of feet and the back of the neck helps create a stress-free mood when tensions are high. Calmer can be used as part of your children's nightly ritual.

doTERRA Serenity Blend & Serenity Softgels for the adults

doTERRA Serenity combines essential oils renowned for their ability to create a restful environment at bedtime. Apply one to two drops to the hands and inhale throughout the day to help reduce life’s daily stressors, or diffuse at night to help quiet a restless baby or child.  doTERRA Serenity can be used in conjunction with doTERRA Serenity Restful Complex Softgels. Diffusion of the doTERRA Serenity essential oil blend creates a relaxing environment while the softgels promote a restful night’s sleep.

Diffuser Blends
Diffuser blends are a simple way for your mind and body to absorb aromatherapy benefits. Diffusing is especially effective at bedtime. Simply put the oils in your diffuser and run it as you start your nightly routine. Keeping the diffuser going throughout the night may be helpful too.
Sleeping Cream
If you struggle to get your little ones to sleep, here’s a simple solution that also promotes bonding through touch. A base of coconut oil combined with lavender and orange essential oils will help calm nerves, anxiety, and insomnia while promoting deep relaxation. Rub a little sleeping cream on your children’s feet as they prepared for bed. Let them rub the cream on your feet too so you can all share the benefits! Click here for the quick and easy recipe.

Insomnia Spray
