Insomnia is habitual sleeplessness, repeated night after night. This means either being unable to fall asleep when you go to bed, or waking up and not being able to get back to sleep. Insomnia can result from a wide variety of causes such as stress, physical pain, breathing problems, depression or caffeine consumption but is generally not as harmless as it is frustrating.

Essential Oils Suggested for Treatment:

Chamomile, Lavender

Suggestions for Use:
  • Combine the essential oil with a carrier oil and massage the back, neck, temples, etc.
  • Add 10 drops of essential oil to the bath and soak for fifteen minutes (good before bed, not in the middle of the night!)
  • Add a drop or two of essential oil to your pillow

If sleepless nights are an ongoing concern, consult your physician.
