This essential oil recipe was given to me by my mother when I desperately needed to relax and get some sleep. I am not sure of its origin but I feel I should pass it along. The scent is heavenly, relaxing and knocks you out. Just lovely. Give it a try. This mixture of oils goes a long way in relaxing your mind and body and nudging you off to a restful sleep.
The Sleep Bomb:
10 drops Lavender
6 drops of Vetiver
4 drops Ylang Ylang
Combine all oils together, I triple this recipe for a dropper bottle, mix will and add 4-5 drops in an ultrasonic diffuser. If you don’t have Ylang Ylang, you could try Clary Sage in its place. Still lovely, still calming and still a sedative.
You can also mix these oils in a roller bottle with FCO and apply to the bottoms of your feet or to your chest.
As always, only use the highest quality essential oils. Neither this recipe nor how it affects the mind and body have been evaluated by the FDA. If you have a medical issue or are taking medications, please discuss these oils with a doctor before using. Lavender, Vetiver and Ylang Ylang are GRAS essential oils.
