  • Lavender Essential Oil: This relaxing oil improves sleep by reducing feelings of anxiety and emotional distress as well as reducing pulse rates. It also works by promoting a sense of inner peace by diminishing irritability.

  • Vetiver Essential Oil: The aroma of this warming, balancing oil has a grounding and sedative effect on the mind, which decreases obsessive, paranoid, phobic, and anger-induced tendencies. It is known for its ability to stimulate blood circulation and to alleviate aches, pains and general physical exhaustion. By doing this, it reduces stress and pressure in body and mind.

  • Frankincense Essential Oil: This oil also has a grounding scent and promotes easy breathing. It induces feelings of tranquility, contentment and relief from the physical and mental efforts of the day, thus proving to have properties that combat depression and anxiety, which are common factors in sleeplessness. It is known to reduce heart rate and blood pressure and to allow the body to reach an ideal body temperature that is conducive to sleep.

  • Ylang Ylang Essential Oil: This oil is thought to have a euphoric effect on the mood, which helps reduce nervous conditions such as anxiety, tension, and palpitations. It is known to reduce high blood pressure and, being beneficial for regulating rapid heartbeats and breathing, it reduces other negative emotions such as anger and frustration.

  • Orange Essential Oil: This oil positively influences the body by providing a sense of upliftment, peacefulness, and cheerfulness. Its ability to alleviate anxiety, anger, and depression makes it beneficial for relaxing muscles, which promotes restfulness, drowsiness, and thus increased sleep duration.

  • Carrier Oil (Fractionated Coconut Oil recommended): This refined, clarified, and deodorized carrier oil is highly stable and moisturizing. It is odorless and leaves a hydrating moisture barrier on the skin without clogging pores.
