Lavender Essential Oil for Better Sleep and Relaxation

According to Webmd and several other sources, including global studies and Aromatherapists, Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula angustifolia) can help sedate, relax and calm the nerves. Lavender can also be beneficial in resolving insomnia.

Lavender has been studied in a wide range of people. Several studies worldwide have shown Lavender Essential Oil to induce calmness, reduce aggravation and promote sleep. 

However, it is important to use the right kind of Lavender Essential Oil, which is Lavandula Angustifolia and to use the right number of drops. Too much - and Lavender may have the opposite effects, as with any healing medicinal - essential oil or otherwise.

Personally, in our house, we put a few  drops of  Lavender Essential Oil on our pillows before bed. My 10 year old daughter gets 2-3 drops on her pillow. My husband and I put 4 drops on our pillows.
