Need More Sleep?

by Andrea Butje on May 18, 2011

essential oils for sleepPeople often ask me about sleep–specifically, how to get more of it! We wrote a post about essential oils for sleep that you can read here.

In addition to the ideas in our previous post about essential oils for sleep, I would add a linen spray. Use the spray on your sheets right before you get into bed. It works like a dream! (Sorry, couldn’t resist!)

Linen spray:
2 oz (60 ml) of water
15 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
3 drops Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)

Spray your sheets and under your pillow . . . and off you go to an aromatic dreamland!

I recommend making this product fresh every few weeks.

Sleeeep!!! Funny, I just saw your posting here after I had posted a note about sleep on my own blog:

Okay, now I need to grab me some lavender and take a nap…zzzzzz.

Love these blends (and the sleepy panda!). I’ve been having restful sleep and sweet dreams with a body balm made with lavender, rosewood, tangerine, peach artemisia, and just a smidge of clary sage. I dab it on my hands, neck, the soles of my feet, and on the edge of my pillowcase.

Even though I do not have a problem with sleep (YAY!), I love going to sleep with sweet aromas in my head. I use a spray I made with lavender and ylang ylang, like you; to that I also add rosewood and sandalwood. It’s heavenly!
