I Need Sleep Now Essential Oil Recipe

Essential oil recipes for sleep

We all love to sleep well. This bath salts recipe can really help! It’s one of my favorite essential oil recipes for sleep.

I have a lot of essential oil recipes for sleep, and I especially love this one in pink bath salts. But you can use any natural salt you like.

1 drop Neroli essential oil (Citrus aurantium var. amara)
3 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
1 drop Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
2 oz pink Himalayan salt

This recipe is just the right amount for one bath, but you can easily make a larger amount and store it in a glass jar for future baths.

If you don’t like to take baths or don’t have a bath tub, this same blend can be used in 2 oz of lotion and applied to your back and shoulders right before bed. Another idea is to use the same recipe (minus the salt) in a spray bottle of water for your linens.

This sounds like a great idea for a spray. Our weather is so unpredictable these days, I am having a hard time sleeping through the night!

A bedside spray could help me get back to sleep and cool me off as well.

I love that sleep blend… another one that I do is to substitute 2 drops of Vetiver instead of the Neroli and you just drift off to sleep…

Can’t wait to try the sleep blend and Neroli smells so good too. An added benefit!

I tend to get a rash from the citrus oils in the bath. Is there another oil I could substitute?

Essential oils have been used medicinally in history. Medical applications proposed by those who sell medicinal oils range from skin treatments to remedies for cancer and often are based solely on historical accounts of use of essential oils for these purposes.
