If your sleeping problem is falling asleep, this will help. Lavender and lemon essential oils both help slow your mind down so you can stop making those to-do lists and planning your week when you are trying to go to sleep. When you use this blend, take 10 deep breaths and you’ll be in dream land before you know it.
Rub 2-3 drops of lavender oil in your cupped palms, and then inhale to draw the scent all the way into your amygdala gland (the emotional warehouse) in your brain to calm the mind. Then, rub on the feet, temples, wrists (or anywhere) for an immediate calming effect on the body. Great for use before you sleep or even in crowded areas like planes or subways to carve out your own personal oasis.
