New research indicates that sleep is an essential part of regulating hormones, boosting immunity, and alleviating mood disorders such as anxiety and depression. Due to their sleep-inducing qualities, essential oils can be applied on the forearms, chest, neck, and feet before bedtime. Specifically, the report recommends rollerballs as an accessible way to mix and use essential oils at home. They are also travel-friendly and can be used for on-the-go stress relief.
The Oily Gal report begins by suggesting three carrier oils that can be used as a base for any blend, each with its own individual benefits, including the most popular fractionated coconut oil which has a long shelf-life. It recommends that jojoba oil is an ideal base for sensitive skin given that it contains vitamin E, which can alleviate psoriasis and eczema.
Similarly, sweet almond oil is an appropriate emollient for sensitive and acne-prone skin. It is high in vitamin D which can be moisturizing and nourishing for hormonal skin. The report suggests using a funnel or pipette to prevent spillage when inserting the base oil into the rollerball vial.
These bases can be enhanced and customized through the 6 sleep-inducing essential oil recipes, such as Serene Night, which contains lavender, orange, and cedarwood, and Good Sleep which blends frankincense and ylang ylang to induce sleepiness.
The recipe cards indicate how much of each oil should be used for optimal aromatherapy and calming effects. The special Bedtime Blend combines lavender, juniper berry, and vetiver to naturally relieve anxiety. The range of relaxing scents and blends combine sweet marjoram, chamomile, and bergamot.
