How Aromatherapy can help you to sleep better

Aromatherapy provides a natural way to deal with insomnia, relaxation, anxiety, and stress. The primary purpose of aromatherapy is to produce an odor that affects the human body. The smell can affect the way that human beings react. The scents from aromatherapy subconsciously induce deep states of relaxation and calm.

Different smells can stimulate the brain.

Different fragrances can evoke feelings and memories associated with that smell. It has been said that odors associated with specific memories will remain the longest in our brains. This means we can use a particular smell if we want to recall a memory more quickly or imprint a specific memory with the help of a particular smell. Aromatherapy is used for mental and emotional well-being worldwide, and the use of essential oils has increased by over 400% over the last five years.

Ensure safety when using essential oils

Not all essential oils are safe to apply onto the skin or even take them internally. However, if you use doTerra Essential oils, you can be sure the oils are safe to use. 

Furthermore, doTerra provides a whole range of Free educational courses, Ebooks, and leaflets about the use and origin of their oils. You can explore the doTerra Essential Oil Range here.

In my work as Shamanic Healer, I only use doTerra essential oils this way; I can guarantee the highest quality and safety to my clients.

There are a few different ways to enjoy aromatherapy smells, such as putting a few drops in your bath water. If you mix this bath with Epsom Salt, you have a super relaxing experience that will help you sleep better in no time. Epsom salt minerals contain magnesium, which helps your body produce melatonin, a hormone that promotes sleep. Many people who have Low magnesium levels often struggle with lousy sleep quality and stress. Some people say that taking Epsom salt baths can reverse those issues by allowing your body to absorb magnesium through the skin.

Using essential oils for massages

You can use essential oils for massages or even sprinkle a few drops on your pillow at night. The benefits of receiving a massage are plenty; it is the gentle nature of the therapist’s movements on the body‘s soft tissues. Massages with essential oil have a calming effect on the nervous system; they reduce stress and pain and promote a healing environment within the body. Many Aromatherapists will mix their oils accordingly to your problems and choose the suitable essential oils for your treatment. However, you can also use essential oils to massage yourself around your legs and your feet, especially when the Moon is in Pisces or Aquarius; this can improve circulation and ease.

Using the Moon calendar to find the best day for your treatment

In my Astroshamanic work, I use the moon and sun calendar to determine the best day for beauty treatments of Aromatherapy. Once you know how to use those calendars for your well-being, you will see how effective those holistic treatments are. The moon is known to affect our biorhythm, metabolism significantly, and how our body absorbs nutrients and reacts to them. Furthermore, we can determine days on which it is beneficial to heal specific areas of the body as their sensitivity is heightened on specific days. This and more will be part of my upcoming Signature Program.

Calming Essential Oils by doTerra

“Many essential oils for sleep have calming benefits. Essential oils like Lavender and Bergamot are rich in linalool and linalyl acetate; both compounds have well-known relaxing properties. These oils can be diffused in the bedroom to create a peaceful environment before bed. They can also be taken internally to calm the nervous system, promote relaxation, and lead to restful sleep.

* You can add two to four drops of Lavender or Bergamot essential oil to herbal teas like Chamomile or Lemongrass for about 30 minutes before bed. When you’re not in the mood for a warm drink, add two to four drops of Lavender into an empty capsule and swallow.

Aside from Lavender and Bergamot, many oils can be diffused to help create the soothing environment you need to fall asleep.

Some essential oils for sleep need to be taken internally for their benefits. Petitgrain, Vetiver, and Roman Chamomille all can be taken internally to help soothe your body and prepare for sleep.*” – doTerra

Help your kids to relax and sleep better

Lavender is one of the super plants.

The most popular aromatherapy oil used today is lavender. Lavender is very versatile and can even be grown in your backyard. Once harvested, you can make a lovely tea and drink it an hour before bed. It is not only great to help with insomnia but also, but it also works excellent for digestive-related issues and is a very effective antidepressant. Additionally, it calms nerves, relaxes the body, and promotes sleep.

Sometimes the everyday stresses of life can build up, and a combination of aromatherapy oils can be magical in creating a harmonic balance, a sense of well-being and relaxation, and promoting sleep. Moreover, essential oils are nature’s medicine and provide all we need for a healthy and balanced life.

doTERRA Serenity™ Restful Complex Softgels

“To relieve occasional sleeplessness, take doTERRA Serenity Softgels.* The soft gel contains a combination of Lavender essential oil, L-theanine (an amino acid found in green tea), and plant extracts, including lemon balm, passionflower, and german chamomile. Multiple studies show the benefits of all the ingredients in improving your sleep.*

L-theanine has been shown to improve sleep efficiency, which refers to the amount of time you are asleep. It also improves sleep latency, or the time it takes you to fall asleep once the lights are off. Both are important to healthy sleep, as those who can fall asleep faster are usually more likely to sleep efficiently.” – doTerra

Aromatherapy candles.

Aromatherapy candles are also available in the various scents mentioned above; they are a great added touch but likely do not release enough fumes to combat something as challenging as insomnia. Light a candle 30min before you go to bed while you practice meditation or another form of relaxation to calm your system before sleep.

In conjunction with aromatherapy, meditation and yoga work excellently to free the negative energy from your body that is causing you to lose precious sleep. Besides helping with just insomnia, it will lead you to a more healthy life in general.
