For as long as I can remember I have been able to fall asleep anytime, anywhere. I literally get into bed at night and pass out within five minutes of laying there. I thought I was getting good sleep.
A few months ago I started researching and purchased my first few essential oils. Since then I have amassed quite the collection and got my first diffuser a few weeks ago. I have tried different oil combinations for numerous things (allergies, cramps, headaches, etc) but never tried any for sleep because I thought I didn’t need it.
The first day I got my diffuser I used it all day long diffusing oils for energy, oils to put me in a better mood, and oils to clean the air. I was addicted. HA! When it came time to go to bed I almost put the diffuser up but at the last minute I decided to put it by my bed and diffuse some Lavender. I slept about the same as I always had.
The next morning I started researching oils for better sleep and decided to mix Lavender and Balance that night when I went to bed. Y’all. I have never slept better in my life. Yes, I had always gone to sleep with no problem but I didn’t realize I was waking up all night and tossing and turning and trying to get comfortable and never really got a sound night’s sleep until I actually got one. I seriously love this stuff!
I have been using my little concoction for about two weeks now and I am obsessed. HA! I still go to sleep really easy but now I actually sleep all night. No waking up or tossing and turning. A few nights I swear I don’t even move at all and I wake up in the exact same position as when I went to sleep.
Even crazy Sophie puppy has been sleeping better! No up and down, off and on the bed all night. Can I get a hallelujah and praise Jesus?! In case you were wondering, it’s perfectly dafe to use oils on your pets.
