Can’t Turn Your Brain Off at Night? Having Trouble Sleeping

Do you often lay in bed and think about work, your schedule the next day, running through your kids schedules, groceries you need to buy, things that need to be done around the house,…?

It happens to everyone!  The sleepless night due to not being able to turn your brain off is not a lot of fun and causes our patience to wear thin the next day.  Have you tried defusing essential oils at night?  There are several essential oils that will help you relax and reduce stress, which will help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

Generally defusers (which can be purchased almost anywhere) usually run for 2 to 4 hours at a time and will turn themselves off when the time limit has been reached or the water has been defused.  My family turns their defusers on about a half hour before bedtime; when the kids go to their rooms to read.  The defusers helps them relax their bodies and tells their brain it’s bed time.  The kids are falling asleep faster, stay asleep all night and are easier to get out of bed in the morning, for the most part :-).  We can tell they are sleeping better when the defusers are on during the night.

My husband has also noticed the difference in his quality of sleep when the defusers is on and when it is not.  It’s amazing what some essential oils will do to your quality of sleep!  Try it out and see how your quality of sleep improves.

Staying Healthy During Cold and Flu Season

With the beginning of cold and flu season upon us I thought it would be appropriate timing to share a way I boost my family’s immunity…

My husband and I just returned from an amazing trip to Italy. We, along with other adult family members, took a bus trip around Italy for 12 days. Yes you read that correctly – 12 day bus tour. There were 40 adults on the bus, plus the driver and tour guide. On our first day on the bus, we all quickly realized that one individual was not well. In fact, as we found out later, she had bronchitis. She was so very nice and didn’t cover her mouth as she coughed all of the time. Thus sharing all of her germs, contagious or not, with all 41 others on the bus.

Needless to say, as time went on others on the bus started to cough and not feel well. I know you are thinking how miserable and that everyone got sick. Normally I’d think the same thing, but that’s when I went into my “bag o’ oils”, as everyone liked to call it, and started applying the “Immunity” mix that I had brought along.

My husband and I started applying the “immunity” oils on the plane ride over so we were covered. After a few hours of the lady coughing, I passed my “Immunity” oil to my parents and siblings. I am happy to report that only three out of the eight of us got sick. Two of the three didn’t use the oils at all. My dad, the one of the three who did get sick, said that normally he gets sicker than he did while we were gone. Plus he stopped using the oils after he started to not feel great. After two days he started taking using the oils again and he started feeling better.

We have been home for two plus weeks and everyone is feeling good. My parents are firm believers in the oils now and use them every night. My family has been using them everyday and everyone is feeling great.

So I will not hold out anymore…. here is what I put in the “immunity” mix
Carrier Oil – I use Sweet Almond Oil most of the time
Frankincense Essential Oil
Lemon Essential Oil
Oregano Essential Oil
