Sometimes sleep is hard to come by…. You’ve had the summer to relax, but along with crisper weather, fall has brought with it school, extra-curricular activities and endless boardroom meetings. Well, meet your new best friend… Vetiver.
Vetiver is one of the most soothing and relaxing essential oils out there. This rich and earthy oil helps promote sleep by relieving anxious feelings and anger, two major inhibitors of quality rest. Below is a recipe for your own diffuser blend, which I suggest using an hour or so before you would like to fall asleep.
Sleep Tight Diffuser Blend
Place essential oils in diffuser before getting in bed and enjoy! Be sure to add one drop at a time because number of drops will vary depending on size and type of diffuser used.
Vetiver can also be used for meditation, as it balances the Root Chakra. It’s beneficial for fighting mild acne and oily skin too.
Need help relaxing at the end of the day? Think about adding Sleep Bath Salts to a warm bath (for an extra soothing punch, burn a Lavender Candle on a dry surface nearby). I also recommend applying diluted Vetiver or Sleep Blend to the temples and back of neck shortly before climbing into bed.
Please note: Vetiver has a fairly distinct aroma, so it is best to use in combination with other essential oils.
