Spray This Simple 3 Ingredient Oil On Your Feet 10 Minutes Before Bed And Watch What Happens
I found this great recipe for an essential oils Sleepytime Spray – a safe, effective, and really nice-smelling sleep inducer. A quick spray on the soles of my feet and I’m out cold – and it even works for kids!
Remember sleep? I mean a Good Night’s Sleep. I’ve capitalized it because it’s important. But we often overlook a Good Night’s Sleep, and many of you (myself included) may not have gotten A Good Night’s Sleep in some time.
What does it even mean anyway? And more importantly – how do I get one?
A Good Night’s Sleep means 8 hours of shut-eye. There are tips and tricks on how to fall asleep – everything from Himalayan salt rock lamps to feng shui to dropping the temperature in your bedroom to a below-comfortable level.
You need 8 hours every night. Every night. EVERY. NIGHT. There – I’ve said it. Now that we’re on the same page, let’s flip to the next chapter: how to achieve this 8 hours of sleep using essential oils.
I’m guessing you’ve got some knowledge of essential oils, if so just skip this next part where I discuss the essentials of some essential oils (EO). The EOs you’ll need to make the 3-ingredient sleep spray are: Magnesium, Lavender, and Chamomile.
If you’re a gardener, tea-drinker, or just a great person that peruses Healthy Holistic Living daily, you’ll know about chamomile. It is a calming herb which, when brewed into tea, helps the drinker relax. As an EO chamomile is a potent and helpful sleep inducer.
Lavender is another lovely flower as well as a calming, relaxing herb. In oil format, it is what we would consider “extremely potent” – sometimes a few drops on a pillowcase is enough. Most people use diluted lavender EO and, because of its potency, don’t use it for kids.
Here at Healthy Holistic Living we’ve been talking a lot about magnesium lately: its internal and external uses and what that means for your digestion, cramps, anxiety, and sleeplessness. Magnesium EO can often make your skin tingle, especially if you’re magnesium-deficient, so the tough skin on your feet is a good place to apply magnesium EO. While not technically an “oil”, magnesium essential oil is called oil because of the look and feel – you can buy it (easier) ormake it at home (cost-effective).
