Curing Insomnia with Aromatherapy

15-25% of adults can suffer from sleepless nights. There are alternatives to the use of drugs to induce sleep.

These essential oils can help you in treating insomnia:

Camomile
Patchouli
Sandalwood
Neroli
Ylang-ylang
Marjoram

You can use ten drops in your bath and soak well. Or for massage use 12 drops in 4 fl oz (100 ml) of a carrier oil.

A warm bath just before bed is a great way to relax. The warmth can help you to feel sleepy, and adding 2 drops each of the essential oils of orange blossom, meadowsweet and hops can insure a restful night.

Or inhale neat and sprinkle a few drops on your pillow.

Camomile is one of the most sedative oils and you could also try using it in a burner, and drinking camomile tea before you go to bed.

For tension and stress that interferes with sleep, a
blended tincture can be fast-acting. Mix tinctures of
Passiflora, skullcap, and valerian in an amber-colored
dropper bottle to keep by your bedside. Take four to six
drops to help you sleep with no drowsiness the next
morning. - Submitted by Ashlee
