Sedative Essential Oils

Sandman_header

This week’s essential oil class is on sedative essential oils. Below you will find class recordings (when available) and all of the materials you need to make your own family-friendly sedative essential oil blends.

Essential Oils are not the only tool…

Before we get started, I want it clear essential oils are not the only tool

Chalene Johnson and Shawn Stevenson discuss lifestyle changes to help with better sleep on Katch. I've already implemented some of these changes and saw results the first night. They talk about blue light around 17:30 and Dopamine around 22:00. So much good info throughout!

These are the orange glasses I ordered, the book I pre-ordered (edited to say I got it read it cover to cover, and learned so much!!), and the tinted screen I got for my iPhone. Also download F.lux to your desktop and Twilight app to your Android. This lamp can be adjusted from blue light (day) or amber light for evening.

Also listen to this: Why Great Sleep is the Ultimate Fat Burner.

  1. I have dogs so using Sandman is out for me due to the cedarwood unless I use a personal inhaler. Bummer because I was really excited about trying it for my husband’s insomnia. Is there a good replacement for cedarwood in that blend in order to be able to diffuse it safely or should I just stick to the Heavy Eyelids blend for diffusing?
