Did you know that we have a sleep deprived society?
There have been some recent books & studies that discuss this. From overuse of cellular devices or screens before bed, to busy minds that won’t shut down, to fatigued adrenal glands from too much coffee.
Truth is most of us these days don’t get enough sleep
I know I’m lacking in sleep, I have 4 kids (including a baby + toddler!) and I’m a super busy stay at home working mom.
It helps to create a night time ritual to unwind before going to bed. Doing things like: yoga for sleep, meditation, shutting off devices at least one hour before going to bed, having a calming bath can help you unwind. So can essential oils for sleep.
Here are some of the best essential oils for sleep, and some calming diffuser blends

Where to buy essential oils
You can buy essential oils from health food stores, but I’ve fallen in love with doTERRA. I love the high quality standards from how they source their oils, the work they do in foreign countries and the testing the oils go through. You can read more about why I chose doTERRA here, or you can buy essential oils at retail or wholesale through this link. (I highly recommend the starter kits, which gives you 25% off your oils)
