Before essential oils I was one of those people that was constantly waking up in the night. I would maybe get 2-3 hours of sleep at a time before I would randomly wake up. Most nights I spent staring at the ceiling trying to even fall asleep. Helllloooo insomnia.
listen to your body.
If you suffer from anxiety, you may often find that sleep is hard to come by. Lack of sleep leads to an increase in production of stress hormones. What are “stress hormones”? They’re the hormones that increase blood pressure, heart rates, and blood sugars. When you don’t get enough sleep you’re basically stressing yourself out MORE!
I was sleeping like total crap when COVID-19 hit. I was looking for ways I could help myself without having to risk myself or my family members going to the doctor (for my sleep). Being a huge skeptic – I gave essential oils a try. And let me tell you – they changed my life.
I started with a premium starter kit because it offered a variety of different things:
+ skincare support
+ mental health support
+ sleep support
+ and not to mention the ability to use them to clean my household and create a scent of my choice whenever I want that doesn’t contain any toxic chemicals
any essential oiler is going to tell you that the second you buy a starter kit or essential oils you should diffuse Lavender.
night one: i filled up my diffuser and gave it a try. i was SHOOK when I woke up the next morning, feeling fantastic!
thinking it was all in my head I tried it again the following night and was surprised when I woke up the following morning again (two nights in a row!!!!!!) just to my alarm feeling great!

I went from waking up 2-3 times a night to sleeping fully through the night until my alarm just from a few drops of essential oils.
