Use Aromatherapy for Insomnia
Whip up a slumber-friendly potion. Combine 5 drops clary sage and 5 drops bergamot. Soak a tissue with 2 drops of the blend. Place the tissue between your pillowcase and your pillow to help pave the way to dreamland.
Prepare a bedtime brew. Mix 2 drops of jasmine with 4 drops of lavender and 6 drops of ylang-ylang. Add this blend to a diffuser in your bedroom a few minutes before bedtime. Inhale and enjoy.
Massage your way to a good night's sleep. Prepare a blend using equal parts grapefruit oil and lavender oil. Use this mixture to give yourself a massage before bedtime to facilitate sweet dreams.
Take a warm bath. Prepare a bath before bed, adding 10 drops of orange oil, or ylang-ylang to the water. Take a long soak to help combat insomnia.
