SleepEssence™ essential oil supplement

SleepEssence™

essential oil supplement

Do you get a full 8 hours of sleep every night?  If you are like most people, probably not.  Not getting enough sleep not only makes you tired, but it can also contribute to depression, weight gain, heart disease and irritability.*   Prescription sleep aids will knock me out, but there are a few things wrong with that.  1) if I HAVE to wake up in a hurry, I can’t. Heaven forbid there is an emergency that i need to be alert for and 2) I never really feel “rested”.

Vetiver essential oil

Vetiver

(Vetiveria zizanioides)

topical aromatic

Vetiver essential oil has an earthy and grounding aroma,bsimilar to patchouli with a touch of lemon.   Vetiver  can be diffused or used topically for its calming and relaxing fragrance. Vetiver includes the naturally occurring constituents isovalencenol, khusimol and beta-vetivone, and is included in the ART® Creme Masque, Melaleuca-Geranium Moisturizing Soap, Inspiration™ and Lady Sclareol™ essential oil blends, and SleepEssence™.   Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides) has a heavy, earthy fragrance

Also known as “Khus oil”, the essential oil of vetiver is obtained through steam distillation of its 6a00d8341c630a53ef016300787406970d-800wiroots.  This is probably why the smell of this oil is often described as “earthy” and “herbaceous”.  Vetiver is a thick and syrupy oil and is sometimes challenging to get out of the bottle, especially if it has been sitting for a long time.  Use a toothpick to open up the air vent (center hole) or take the plastic orifice out and use a dropper if you are impatient, like me.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use. Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water. Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists. Possible skin sensitivity.

  1. Diffuse: Diffuse this oil for a calming and relaxing fragrance throughout the home.  because Vetiver is so thick, it’s recommended you combine with a carrier oil first before diffusing.
  2. Calming: Vetiver’s calming aroma is most potent through aromatic and topical use. Diffuse through the home, massage into the feet and toes, apply to the back of the neck or forehead, or use on the pillow or shirt collar.
  3. Promote a restful night’s sleep:This calming, grounding fragrance can be placed on the pillow, massaged into the soles of the feet, or applied to the back of the neck or forehead.*
  4. Grounding: Vetiver is wonderfully calming scent. I like to add a couple drops to my hands, rub together, hold to my face, close my eyes and slowly inhale.
  5. Bath: Add to Epsom salts in a bath for soothing experience.  I recommend this to help you unwind before bedtime
  6. Perfume: Vetiver has an intoxicating scent.  Described as woody, smokey, earthy, herbaceous etc it is a good base note.  I would recommend using this oil in combination with other lighter scents to create a one of a kind blend.
  7. For men: The woody, earthy scent has been used for its fragrance for centuries, and a popular use of Vetiver is adding a warm aroma to men’s soaps and colognes. You can create a personalized scent by adding Vetiver essential oil as a base note for a masculine DIY perfume.
  8. Study: Let Vetiver’s complex and uplifting aroma help calm your mind so you can focus on the tasks that require the utmost attention. Perfect for study, difficult work tasks, or even curling up with a long novel, Vetiver essential oil’s fragrance creates a relaxing atmosphere where distractions lose their sway.

10 uses for Peace and Calming® Essential Oil Blend

PEACE & CALMING®

topical aromatic

Peace & Calming® is a pretty transparent oil.  Transparent in that it means what it says and says what it does.

Peace and Calming® is a gentle, fragrant blend of Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Tangerine and Blue Tansy essential oils with an aroma that’s comforting and freshens the air. Diffuse to create a calming and peaceful atmosphere throughout the home. Peace & Calming is a must have for every household, especially those with young children.

peace and calming YL micro

I find that it smells mostly of Patchouli and  is a deeply relaxing and serene oil to diffuse.  Have you ever been to a hypnotist show? Or done one of those relaxation/mediation exercises? In both of these situations you mentally imagine each part of your body, relaxing first your head, then your neck, then your shoulders etc, each body part getting heavier and heavier,  you melt into the bed and couldn’t move if you wanted to.  This the reaction I get from Peace & Calming® but with much less effort.

Here are some other uses for  Peace & Calming® essential oil blend.

  1. Calm: Helps create a calming and relaxing environment when diffused or used topically
  2. Children: Diffuse to promote a calming environment for children or in my case, grumpy husbands.
  3. Bath: Add a few drops to Epsom salt before adding to a bath for a relaxing soak. Have someone come check on you after a while – you don’t want to turn into a prune!
  4. Meditation: Offers a peaceful aroma for yoga and meditation when diffused.PC
  5. Massage: Massage Peace & Calming essential oil blend on the reflex points of the feet and back of the neck for a soothing and relaxing effect.
  6. Holidays: Visiting in-laws?  Peace and calming will be your best friend 🙂
  7. Mind: Calm an overactive mind with 2-3 drops rubbed onto legs or arms. Pair with lavender for a great smelling and effective nighttime routine
  8. Perfume: Use as perfume behind ears and on wrists. Alternately, add to a diffuser necklace or a silk scarf to have the scent with you all day long!
  9. Pets: Rub Peace & Calming essential oil blend behind overactive pets’ ears after an afternoon of playing with the kids.
  10. Relaxation and rest: Rub Peace & Calming essential oil blend on feet to release tension and promote a good night’s rest.
  11. Diffuse: Diffuse Peace & Calming to freshen the air.

Cruising the web I found my favorite testimonial EVER at Essential Wellness

Mary E. Hoose submitted the following tip:
“I have a work associate who was getting married and was very nervous. I gave her a bottle of Peace and Calming® and she used it for about three months …. The big day arrived and she even put Peace and Calming® on a cotton ball and placed it in the center of her bouquet. Every time she [wanted a peaceful and relaxing environment] she would smell her bouquet. Thanks to Peace and Calming® the day went very smoothly.”

How great is that?
