Lavender is more than just a lovely scent that can be used in perfume, soaps, and skin care products. It is also the go-to essential oil when it comes to sleep due to its natural compounds that help you relax and fall asleep without the use of chemicals or synthetics.
This wonder EO can be used in four specific ways to help you sleep better.
Diffusers have taken over a lot of homes due to the many benefits they provide. However, if you want to gain more from your trusty oil diffuser, you might want to use it in your bedroom as well. With a few drops of lavender essential oil, you can breathe in soothing air that'll surely make you fall asleep in no time.
If you're not into oil diffusing (which could be hard to imagine), you can opt for a lavender room spray instead. It's up to you if you would buy a ready-made product from a store; just make sure that you're getting an all-natural spray. Nevertheless, making your own room spray is easy peasy. You only need a spray bottle where you will mix five ounces of distilled water and 20 drops of lavender essential oil. Spray this mixture on your pillows before going to bed.
You can also incorporate lavender EO in your bath before bedtime.Simply add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your warm bathwater and viola! Enjoy a relaxing, spa-like experience in your own bathroom and sleep easily afterwards.
Who would say no to a good ol' soothing massage before sleep? For an extra calming experience, make your own massage oil with lavender EO. All you have to do is dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil. Rub this mixture on your temples, the back of your neck, and the bottom of your feet.
