I have found the older you get the harder it is to get to sleep and stay asleep. So many of my friends have talked about their struggles with insomnia, and I have had spells of not sleeping. When you feel overworked or your brain won’t stop and keeps you up these diffuser blends can help. They are also great to use when you are feeling under the weather, to help you sleep through that tough cold you have.

    Wow, what a selection of wonderful choices! Sleep is one of those very important essentials. I’ll have to keep this very helpful guide somewhere handy – I’d love to test some of these mixtures! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Heather Kelley says

    I am wondering if anyone has tried Lavendar, Bergamot, and Valerian for sleep diffusing? If so … how many drops of each do you use and how long before you go to bed to you diffuse?

  3. LisaHoffmanWagner says

    These recipes are wonderful, Shannon, and so far we’ve tried #1 (my family loved it, and I LOVED it!). I’m waiting for my Cedarwood EO to arrive, and when that comes, I’m looking forward to experimenting with all the other blends. We’ve only just bought our first diffuser and are having so much fun playing with different scents. I’m trying to find the perfect one to break through writers’ block and one to inspire a successful mindset (I like researching the spiritual side of essential oils in addition to all their health benefits). Thanks for your blog!

    You can use 3 drops Lavender, a hint of peppermint, plus some rosemary to drift off to a deep sleep to.
