SLEEP EASY

Let essential oils work their magic

Here are my top 4 essential oils to promote relaxation and sleep

Lavender

One of the most commonly suggested oils for sleep and relaxation. There are many studies that point to Lavender's effectiveness in supporting sleep; improving sleep quality, increasing sleep amounts, and elevating daytime alertness.

Balance

The warm, woody aroma of doTERRA Balance Grounding Blend helps create a sense of calm and relaxation. The aroma evokes feelings of tranquility and balance.


Cedarwood

Reminiscent of its size and strength, Cedarwood has a grounding aroma that evokes feelings of spiritual and emotional wellbeing.


Vetiver

Due to Vetiver’s calming, grounding effect on the emotions, it is an ideal oil to use in massage therapy and rubbed on the feet before bedtime to promote a sense of relaxation.


How to use

Add to a Diffuser


Add to a bath with some epsom salts


Add some drops of oils to a spray bottle with water and spray on pillows and bedding


Apply diluted with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil to the bottoms of the feet


Add a drop of essential oil to the corner of a warm shower to unwind before bed

DIY SELF CARE

Try these out for yourself at home

Ensure you are investing in your self care with these treatments

Bath 

1/2 cup of Epsom salts

1/2 cup magnesium flakes

8 drops in total of essential oil. Frankincense or Lavender,  Peppermint

If you have aching muscles or carrying tension within the body, then the soothing blend Deep Blue is the one for you ~ its one of my absolute favourites!

Body Scrub

I like to mix up a batch and store in a glass airtight storage jar in my bathroom.

 Add 5 heaped tablespoons of unrefined fine pink Himalayan salt (must be fine) 

2-3 tablespoons of carrier oil - fractionated coconut oil/sweet almond/argan oil to get a gritty consistency

5-10 drops Peppermint 

5 drops Ginger 5 drops Grapefruit

Or just go with the oils that work for you!

Mix ingredients together, then in a circular motion scrubbing legs, thighs, upper arms, hips, belly but avoid face, neck, décolletage and sensitive areas. 

Always rinse out shower or bath afterwards to remove excess scrub from the tray as the oil is slippy - please be mindful. 

Honey Oat Face mask

2tbsp ground oats

2tbsp raw honey

4 drops of Frankincense

4 drops of lavender

Grind the oats to a flour consistency

Add other ingredients and mix

Apply as a mask in and leave for 10-15mins

Wash off gently with a warm face cloth

You can store this in the fridge in an air tight container.

Fancy Feet

Foot scrub

3/4 cup of unrefined fine pink Himalayan salt (must be fine) or 3/4 cup of granulated sugar

1/4 cup of carrier oil (fractioned coconut oil/argan/sweet almond) 

10 drops of Peppermint essential oil

Mix together in a glass jar to easily store left over mix

Place a towel on the floor

Next grab a bucket or plastic tub and fill with warm water.

1/2-1 cup Epsom Salts

5 drops of Lavender or Lemon or Eucalyptus

Use the scrub on your feet using circular motions.

Then towel off the excess, put feet into the tub for a soak.

Finally apply a soothing body butter to the soles of the feet and massage up the heels and onto your calves!
