Discover how essential oils may make you drowsy, calm your racing mind, and help you have a peaceful night’s sleep!
How can Essential Oils Help you Sleep?
If you’re familiar with herbal remedies, you probably already know certain herbs can help you relax and sleep. Maybe you’ve even tried herbal teas like chamomile and Valerian root to help your insomnia. And just like chamomile and Valerian root tea contain sleep promoting properties, their essential oils do, too, just in a more concentrated form.
The concentrated sleep-inducing essential oils’ molecules are so tiny, they’re easily absorbed through your skin, and even through the cell walls in your nose. Because of this, essential oils enter your system quickly, particularly the area of your brain that controls sleep.
