Therapeutic Aromatherapy for Insomnia

Having trouble with sleep is not an uncommon problem, and if you look closely at your surroundings, it makes perfect sense why. With so much information, sound, color, and excitement coming our way from practically every direction, it can make you feel like your brain is working on overload. Our desktop and mobile screens dominate our lives, and they do not help us relax in a natural way.

Aromatherapy, on the other hand, is a powerful way to use the elements of the Earth to calm your brain and get some shut-eye. We'll show you how it can work for you too!

Just Give It a Try
It's normal to be skeptical that this could ever work. After all, you've likely tried other methods that didn't do you much good. The best way to go about using aromatherapy is to incorporate it into your bedtime routine. This means you do the same things every night at the same time every night — even when you're not tired. The actions essentially tell your brain it's time for sleep, which can help you drift off. So when you're brushing your teeth, try lightly sniffing the essential oil of lavender, lemon, or jasmine. Adding some digestible peppermint or cinnamon oil in your nightly cup of tea is also a smart way to calm your brain and rid it of anxieties.
 
Do What Works for You
You'll likely have to experiment a few times to get it right, but that doesn't mean it's not a worthwhile activity; whether that's deep breathing exercises with the smell of rosemary or just having it next to your bed, keep going until you've found the best way to make it a part of your nightly habits, and, don't give up!
