Now that you know what oils to use, do you know how to use them to help with sleep? Just like using essential oils for other purposes, there are different ways you can use them. Let’s take a look:


So, one of the most obvious ways to use them is topical. You will need to use a carrier oil to dilute them before putting them directly on your skin. Some people also like to make their own lotion out of the oil that helps them relax and sleep.


To receive the benefits of essential oils aromatically you must inhale the scent. Most commonly this is done by diffusing the oils in an essential oil diffuser. Other ways you can do this is by dabbing the scent on a kleenex or something else that you can bring to your nose and inhale.

We hope that you find these essential oils help with your quality of sleep. What works for one person may not work for another so it’s important that you experiment to see what works for you. Also, the essential oils to help you fall asleep right now might not work as well in a few months or years from now. You may need to mix up.
