If you treat sleep as an indulgence and not a bare necessity, it’s time to rethink your priorities. Do your body a favour and give it the rest and recuperation that it so needs.

Heres some suggestions...

- Create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere at home by using a combination of the essential oils: Lavender, Mandarin, Marjoram and Sandalwood.

- Purchase an electric burner and put Lavender essential oil in it or alternatively put 2 drops on a tissue and tuck it under your pillow case.

- Put a few drops of Lavender essential oil or Lavender Sleep Massage Oil in to your bath. An aromatherapy bath is a great opportunity to relax and let the tension of your body melt and to visualize all your worries going down the drain.

- Before you go to sleep try massaging the back of your neck, the soles of your feet and your solar plexus area with Lavender Sleep Oil to release all the stress and anxiety. We tend to store our tension, irritability and frustration in the solar plexus area. A soft massage on that area will help relief that accumulated stress or repressed emotion.
