Essential oils are effective for insomnia

The main essen­tial oils that help with insom­nia: laven­der, myrrh, juniper, patchouli, chamomile, rose­mary, gera­ni­um, basil, orange and oth­ers. Com­po­si­tions, that is, com­bi­na­tions of essen­tial oils, is also a great vari­ety. You can take a ready-made recipe on the Inter­net, or exper­i­ment your­self. How­ev­er, the effect of essen­tial oils can be indi­vid­ual. If you do not like the result­ing com­po­si­tion, you should not suf­fer and endure a fra­grance that does not cause you pos­i­tive emo­tions. You can come up with your per­son­al com­po­si­tion and enjoy aro­mather­a­py. How­ev­er, we must remem­ber that com­bin­ing more than 4 essen­tial oils at the same time is unde­sir­able.

    Aroma lamp with essential oils

A com­bi­na­tion of essen­tial oils can be dripped into an aro­ma lamp or a spe­cial medal­lion, which is hung near the bed. If you do not have an aro­ma lamp or a medal­lion, do not lose heart, you can drip a few drops on a wet cloth and put it on the bat­tery. Thanks to the evap­o­ra­tion of water and oil, the room will quick­ly fill with a pleas­ant aro­ma. You can also put a cou­ple of drops of essen­tial oil on a nap­kin and put it near the bed. The effect will be sim­i­lar.

    Massage with essential oils

Remem­ber that in its pure form, apply­ing essen­tial oils to the skin is strict­ly con­traindi­cat­ed. This may cause burns. For mas­sage, cos­met­ic oils (avo­ca­do, macadamia, almond, peach, etc.) are usu­al­ly used in a vol­ume of 10 ml, enriched with a com­po­si­tion of essen­tial oils. By itself, cos­met­ic oil has no smell and is a con­duc­tor for essen­tial oils. The most relax­ing is the mas­sage of the legs, and espe­cial­ly the feet, mas­sage of the tem­ples, neck and décol­leté. How­ev­er, at the first sign of an aller­gic reac­tion, imme­di­ate­ly take an anti-aller­gic agent and wash the oil off the body.

    Relaxing aroma bath

A com­po­si­tion of your favorite essen­tial oils can be added to water before dip­ping into it before bed. In this case, it is not nec­es­sary to dilute essen­tial oils in cos­met­ics. How­ev­er, be aware that some of the essen­tial oils can stain the col­or of the bath itself, so be care­ful.

Pleas­ant aro­mather­a­py and sound dreams.
