Extracted from the blossom of the bitter orange tree, Neroli oil produces a calming effect, lowers blood pressure levels and reduces stress and anxiety. Place a few drops of neroli oil into your diffuser 20 minutes before you’re ready to go to sleep.
Of course, lavender oil has to be on this list. Lavender oil is one of the main essential oils used to create a calm and stress-free environment that helps to improve your mood and sleep quality.
This oil has been used for centuries as a traditional and healing medicine to treat eczema and other skin irritations, sciatica, and other ailments. Additionally, chamomile tea has been used as a mild sedative to reduce anxiety, calm nerves and treat both nightmares and insomnia.
One of my favorite essential oils to use when I’m seeking relaxation is cedarwood – it’s relaxing scent helps to clear my mind to create a calm, grounding environment. Mix a few drops with bergamot essential oil when you’re feeling stressed or in need of some much relaxation.
