Create Your Own Sleepy-Head Aromatherapy Blend

by Cynthia Kasper

If you suffer from an occasional bout of sleeplessness, therapeutic grade essential oils might do the trick to get you back sleeping like a baby.  (Why do we say that? Like babies sleep, right?)  While chronic sleeplessness might indicate adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalances or other physical disparities, here are a few do-it-yourself essential oil blends that could lull you off to a restful night's sleep.

Sleepy-Head Aromatherapy Blends

  • 10 drops Roman chamomile
  • 5 drops clary sage
  • 5 drops bergamot


  • 12 drops orange
  • 8   drops lavender
  • 3   drops valerian
  • 2   drops Roman chamomile

Directions: First, make sure that you are using therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living.  You knew that I was going to say that, right?  If you need to know why, read about therapeutic grade essential oils.  Blend the oils well in a clean dark-colored glass bottle. Add 1-2 drops to a tissue and place inside your pillow to aid you in falling asleep.  In addition, rub a few drops onto your shoulders and the bottom of your feet.

If you prefer you can also diffuse either of these blends during the hour before bedtime or set the diffuser on a timer to diffuse in your room periodically during the night.  To make a larger portion, make the blends using the same ratio as the ones above.  Keep in mind that 15 ml bottle hold approximately 250 drops of essential oil.  For instance, 30 drops of Roman chamomile, 15 drops of clary sage and 15 drops of bergamot.

Taking 2 tablets of ImmuPro or applying Cedarwood to the bottom of your feet before bedtime also aids in a restful night's sleep.
