I have had trouble sleeping for a very long time. What I find helpful is my diffuser and my favourite Essential Oils.
For me Vetiver and Lavender, 1 drop of each on the bottom of each foot before bed and 2-3 drops of Lavender and 1 drop of Vetiver in my diffuser. This helps me to calm down and shut off my mind. I find as soon as I get in bed, my mind wakes up. I think about what I did, what I should have done, what I shouldn’t have done and then I think about it all over again. With my oils, I have found I am able to shut off my thinking. For some more fun I add a drop or 2 of Balance to my feet and diffuser!
