DIY – Lavender for a Good Night Sleep

Lavender Oil is known for its relaxing and calming quality.

It’s been used for stress relieve anxiety and restlessness and insomnia and it just smells really good! Add it to your bath or shower to relieve aching muscles and stress.

Traveling can sometimes be exhausting! I’m up all night thinking about all sorts of things and sometimes may have a hard time falling asleep because my brain is wide awake. A different time zone and dealing with jet lag doesn’t help either.

Lavender essential oil has a calming scent which makes it an excellent tonic for the nerves. Therefore, it can also be helpful in treating migraines and headaches.

I have tons of lavender bushes all over the place. I love the natural scents and the beautiful pop of colors they provide. Not only are they beautiful, but I also use them to help me relax.

I just grab bunches of lavender and make sure to let them dry first (or you can just purchase already packaged lavender) and to help to give it a stronger smell you can also add organic lavender oil.

Create your own aromatherapy satchel:

  1. Lavender Bunches
  2. Little linen bags & rope or ribbon
  3. Organic Lavender Oil
  4. Scissors   

Don’t have time for all of this? (trust me I do understand!) Use pure lavender essential oil and add a  few drops on a piece of tissue and stick it under your pillow… Voilà

    Good Morning Lisa. I when I go to sleep at night, I drink warm hot milk, or popcorn for late night snack or take hot bath or a shower with Lavender bubble bath at Safeway Store and CVS Pharmacy at cost at $7.00 at Safeway Store and $8.39 at CVS Pharmacy. Lavender oil will make go sleep at night when your have to take a very bath at night before everyone goes to bed at night. If that works, let us know about this. Thank you. Oh, by the way, Lisa the Coconut power will make our skin when we take a shower in the morning and at night for long at work.
    Have a wonderful blessed day, Lisa and God Blessings to you.
