sleep diffuser

​Sleep better at night by diffusing these calming, sleep inducing essential oil diffuser blends. All of the essential oils in these blends are specifically chosen for their ability to calm the mind and body.

I keep a diffuser next to every bed and on every nightstand in my house.  I let my kids pick their own sleepy time oils, which they love doing.  They each have different tastes, and different needs, so I love that I can let them have the control.

How to Use Essential Oils to Sleep Better

Essential Oil have a profound impact on our emotional state of mind. There is a direct connection from our nose to the limbic system of our brain. Because of this, essential oils have an almost instant effect on our mood.

Many essential oils also have specific properties that are scientifically shown to have a calming effect on our body.

For example, Lavender, which has been used for centuries for it’s calming effect, has a chemical constituent in it call Linalool. Linalool has a very calming effect on our brain and body, and this is why it is so effective for reducing the effects of stress, and helping to calm before sleep.

Organize your Bedtime Oils on Your nightstand next to your diffusers so that you can easily find them + remember to use them

One of the biggest reasons I see that cause people to fail to use their oils is because they shove their oils in a cabinet somewhere and forget to use them or can’t find them. Out of site, out of mind.

I know for me, I used to have a big mess of rollers and oils on my nightstand that was cluttered and caused me to feel stressed.

So, my husband started making me these pretty oil organizers with his 3D printer so that I could keep my mess organized!

I love having my oils beautifully displayed on my nightstand (and kitchen and bathroom and living room….).

I’ve made them available in my shop so you can also get your oils organized and beautifully displayed.

The rose gold and rainbow are my favorite! There are many colors available and you can store 5ml bottles, 15ml bottles, and 10ml rollers in them.

Use a Quiet Diffuser Next To Your Bed

In order to create a calming environment for sleep, you want to use a quiet diffuser. Some diffusers tend to be quieter than others, although it’s impossible to know until you buy one and plug it in.

If you are new to essential oils, a ultrasonic diffuser is a popular way to get essential oils into the air in order for us to be able to smell the essential oil and receive the full benefit of the essential oil.

This is a hugely popular diffuser that simple, beautiful, and quiet.
