Insomnia. The most unpleasant of ailments. Too many of us are walking around feeling drained and unproductive simply because we are unable to achieve high quality sleep. No amount of coffee can cure insomnia. Have you tried essential oils to help you sleep?
Before you write this idea off as some hippy bogus, stay with me. Essential oils are literally derived from plants. Beyond eating your fruits and vegetables you can derive the health benefits of these plants by breathing in their properties. Say what?!
That’s right. Breathing in certain types of plant properties will help you sleep better. But how? Firstly you will need: a cold air diffuser and the right blend of oils.
Why a diffuser using micro-vapor technology? Because heating the oil, as many diffusers do, basically destroy the healing properties of the oils. We created the BellaSentials premium micro-vapor diffuser to combat this problem. When my husband, Greg, got very ill I needed to find a solution that would help him heal better and more quickly. I knew that diffusing essential oils could help him sleep better and boost his immune system. So I set out on a journey to find the best high-quality diffuser possible. To my disappointment, and major frustration, I found it hard to acquire a user friendly diffuser that worked! So here’s to BellaSentials and our awesome ultrasonic technology!
There are several essential oils that are known to help you sleep. Several of them have been known to be just as effective as other over the counter sleep aids, and many are much more pleasant with zero side effects. Essential oils known to help relaxation include: Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Marjoram, Ylang Ylang, Basil, Neroli, Bergamot, Clary Sage, German Chamomile and Sandalwood.
If you are having a particularly rough time falling asleep, you may need to try Valerian. It is one of the most highly recognized herbs and essential oils for people with insomnia or sleep problems. Valerian is very strong smelling, so you might want to try other essential oils before using valerian. Night time rituals, and setting up habits that help signal to your body that it is time to relax and sleep, go a long way towards promoting a good night’s rest.
So how do you use these oils to help you fall asleep? We love diffusing essential oils in a micro-vapour diffuser. The BellaSentials diffuser systematically releases the perfect amount of essential oil blend into the air to cure all kinds of ailments, including insomnia. The type and quality of air we breathe greatly impacts our mood and mental wellbeing. Diffusers have been used for centuries to help purify and cleanse the air, providing our environments with added health-inducing benefits. Technology has increased our ability to reap the benefits of these oils. Ultrasonic technology slowly releases these oils into the sleep environment for a restful and peaceful sleep. Micro-vapor ensures that your diffuser does not burn up the healing benefits of the oil.
