If you’ve wondered why lavender helps you sleep, it’s time to learn more about its properties and benefits. Lavender is a popular essential oil commonly found in aromatherapy blends. On its own, it has a number of healing benefits.
Lavender, or lavandula, belongs to the lamiaceae family of commonly researched medicinal herbs. Its purple-blue flowers have been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Its essential oil is known to have medicinal uses since it has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It even has antinociception properties, which help the body reduce the sensation of pain. Moreover, the fragrance of lavender has anxiolytic properties that effectively reduce anxiety, making it one of the best essential oils for deep sleep.
The importance of having good-quality sleep shouldn’t be downplayed. Good sleep quality means that you get the recommended amount of sleep (at least 7-8 hours for adults), you fall asleep quickly and don’t wake up more than once throughout the night, and if you do wake up, you quickly fall back to sleep. What’s the best way to tell if you’ve had a good sleep? You feel rested, restored, and rejuvenated when you wake up!
By calming down the nervous system, lavender essential oil does help you sleep better and deeper. Studies have shown lavender oil to have positive effects on one’s breathing and heart rate as well.
All these are reasons lavender is one of the primary essences of Sabai arom’s Sleep Well Essential Oils Blend, which contains lavender for deep relaxation, soothing ylang-ylang and chamomile, eucalyptus to improve your breathing, and bergamot and sweet orange for mental clarity. This essential oil blend will aid restful sleep so you wake up refreshed and energized.
For optimum effectiveness, you can use this versatile blend of essential oils in many ways:
- You can inhale it directly from the bottle, or add 3-5 drops on a napkin or cotton ball and take a deep breath.
- You can apply it to your skin, but before you do so, ensure that it’s properly diluted using a carrier oil in the correct ratio. Do a skin sensitivity test before application as well.
- Use an essential oil diffuser and add 5-10 drops, which is good for a whole night’s duration.
- Use a 100ml spray bottle; fill it with water, add 10-20 essential oil drops, and spray on your pillows, bedsheets, and around your room.
- Before bedtime, add 5-10 essential oil drops into warm bath water for a relaxing bath.
Our Sleep Well Essential Oils Blend helps those with difficulty sleeping to get a good night’s rest. However, if users are pregnant or breastfeeding, or children under 5 years old, it’s important to follow some precautions before using essential oils by consulting a doctor first.
