Scent has the ability to gently and powerfully induce a sense of peace and tranquility, easing the busy mind from accumulated thought, and sedating the body into a blissful slumber.
Essential oils are powerful aromatic essences that are derived from the process of distillation or CO2 extraction. Comprised of often over 200 molecules, many are therapeutically healing, with properties specific to each individual essential oil.
A hint of Eucalyptus citriodoria (lemon eucalyptus) wins the battle for those hard to fall asleep types. Just a drop or two in a teaspoon of vegetable oil applied to the inner arm, solar plexus and soles of the feet will bring down any high paced individual to a restful state.
For optimal use of these oils, diffuse into the air thirty minutes prior to bed, have a hot bath with epsom salts, dry skin, then apply two to three drops of each oil in 30 ml of organic vegetable oil such as sunflower, and massage onto body. Tuck yourself into bed and sleep the night!
