One of the most important things in our lives is… sleep! We just cannot get enough of it. That is not to say that we are lazy - far from it! We are busy little bees. But every night we try and ensure that we get a minimum of eight hours’ sleep so that we can recharge our batteries and reset our immune systems.
Here, we outline the products we recommend to assist with getting a good night’s sleep. This is our Sleep Kit!
Serenity Combo PAck
The Serenity Combo Pack comprises Serenity Essential Oil and Serenity Softgels.
Known as the “Restful Blend”, Serenity is a blend of oils designed to calm and relax the mind and body. It contains:
Lavender Flower, Cedarwood, Ho Wood Leaf, Ylang Ylang Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Vetiver Root, Vanilla Bean Absolute, and Hawaiian Sandalwood.
At around about 7pm in the evening, we put on a diffuser in the bedroom (our current favourite is the Lumo) with a few drops of Serenity. We then close the door. When we head off to bed at around 10pm, the aroma in the bedroom is wonderfully relaxing and we know that it signals bedtime.
Although we do not take the Sotfgels every night, they are great for having to hand if the day has been quite challenging or if we are feeling a little frazzled before bed. Take two of these about an hour before you hit the sack and you can guarantee that you will be feeling quite zen-like.
The next stage of the bedtime routine is to apply oils to the bottom of our feet. Pillow sprays are favoured by many but we find they can also be a little overpowering. Try oiling your feet instead!
Place a few drops of Cedarwood into the palms of your hand and then rub onto the bottom of your feet. The warm, woody scent helps to soothe the mind and body. You will find that you are able to smell the wonderful aroma of Cedarwood through the night but it is not - literally - in your face!
Although Cedarwood is a firm favourite, we are also a fan of Lavender. This oil is wonderful for easing tension and promoting a peaceful sleep. One night we may use Lavender, the next, it may be Cedarwood!
Apply Lavender to the soles or your feet in the same way as described above, or onto the back of your neck. You can even mix it up a bit and use a few drops of each - Lavender and Cedarwood. Both oils works well topically and aromatically.
“Air” or “Breathe” as it was called until recently, is dōTERRA’s Respiratory Blend. Like Serenity, It is another blend of oils containing: Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Lemon, Cardamom, Ravintsara, and Ravensara.
Air maintains feelings of clear airways and easy breathing and it is a favourite among snorers (or their long-suffering partners)! If you are feeling a little congested or stuffy at bedtime, put a few drops of Air into the palm of your hands and cup them over your nose and mouth. Inhale deeply and feel the airways expanding!
You can diffuse Air (on its own or with Serenity or Lavender) but you can also apply it topically - we recommend putting it on the bottom of your feet or to your chest.
The Petal Diffuser is one of dōTERRA’s most popular diffusers - you just plug it in and you’re almost ready to go! It runs for 1, 2 or 4 hours and will switch itself off when the time is up. Just add water and your choice of dōTERRA essential oils and choose whether you want the light on or not. A stylish and effective diffuser and a great night-light for anxious children.
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Last, but not least is FCO, or Fractionated Coconut Oil. This is a carrier oil and is perfect for diluting essential oils. Want your essential oils to go further? Want to use your essential oils safely at any age? Having FCO to hand means that you can use all of dōTERRA’s essential oils and in this case, Serenity, Cedarwood, Lavender and Air on babies, children and on those with sensitive skin. FCO is the perfect partner.
