Lavender oil is well-known and versatile, with a popular, light floral scent that is delightful when diffused. In addition to being diffused, lavender can also be applied topically to help soothe tight muscles, calm irritated skin, and even reduce pain. Perhaps its most popular benefit is lavender’s ability to promote a restful night of sleep and help calm feelings of anxiety.
Just like a certain scent can evoke a particular feeling or memory, the aroma of lavender essential oil can help promote feelings of relaxation. This increased feeling of relaxation and calmness can be especially beneficial at bedtime. In fact, studies show that certain essential oils (with lavender being the most studied) may serve as a safer alternative to pharmaceutical options for dealing with mild to moderate sleep disturbances.
TIP: Consider diffusing Isagenix’s lavender essential oil at bedtime as part of a calming, sleep-promoting routine. Rubbing a drop or two of lavender oil on each wrist or on your temples is another excellent option for creating a more relaxed bedtime atmosphere.
This ancient oil, also known as the king of essential oils, boasts a multitude of benefits. With its powerful properties and deeply aromatic scent, frankincense is ideal for promoting feelings of wellness and relaxation. It is also thought to help support cellular and digestive performance when used internally and support skin health when used topically. Essential oils, including Frankincense, have even been found to help decrease feelings of anxiety.
TIP: To make your bath extra relaxing, try adding several drops of Frankincense essential oil to your bathwater. Or try diffusing 8 to 10 drops of Frankincense essential oil to help unwind after a stressful day.
