7 essential oils for your bedside table

Slip into crisp, clean sheets, crack open a new novel, and set the stage for drifting into dreamland. Slipping into slumber can be easy, thanks to the calming and relaxing aromas of the right essential oils. When it’s time to go to sleep, these essential oils are the best to have around for transforming your bedroom into a tranquil haven for rest.

Lavender essential oil

Like a gentle breeze over blooming fields, Lavender essential oil is calming and fresh. It’s the ideal companion for bed linens and one of the best essential oils to apply before you go to sleep, as its soothing aroma is mild and relaxing.

  • Try Lavender essential oil applied to the bottom of your feet before bed, or mix the oil in a spray bottle with distilled water and spritz it on your pillow. The sweet, floral aroma is a great cue to your mind and body that it’s time to settle down.
  • Diffuse the Dream Blend 30 minutes before bedtime to help you unwind and relax.

  • If you put on lotion before bed, add something new to the process. Combine a few drops of Vetiver oil with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex and massage into your feet for a deeply calming moisturizing moment.

Keeping Deep Relief® Roll-On nearby eliminates the need to hop out of bed for relief.

  • Use the cooling sensation of the Deep Relief essential oil blend, combined with the roll-on applicator, to pinpoint muscles that need extra attention. The base of the skull, neck, and shoulders can always use a little extra love.
