12 Best Essential Oil Diffuser Blends for Sleep

Diffusing essential oils for sleep is one of the first things that got me hooked on essential oils.

Like a lot of women, I used to wake up 2-3 times a night.  I’d hear the dog walking around, or my husband would turn over, or my mind would race with all the things I had to do the next day.  I just couldn’t seem to get the sleep I needed.  I was always tired and in a bit of a brain fog.

Then my sister Ann introduced me to essential oils.  I was pretty skeptical at first.  How could these essential oils be as great as she claimed?  Could they really help you breathe better, increase your metabolism, support your immune system, and help you feel less stressed?  That all sounded too good to be true.

But she is my sister, so I gave the oils a try.  I put 3-5 drops of lavender essential oil in a diffuser by my bed.  Turned the diffuser on.  Climbed into bed and drifted off to sleep.  Next thing I knew my alarm was going off.  I had slept straight through the night for a full 8 hours!!  “But how could this be?”, I thought.  It must have been a fluke.  Maybe I was just so exhausted from the day before and that’s why I didn’t wake up?

I tried it again the next night.  I filled up my diffuser with tap water, and again, I put a few drops of lavender essential oil in my diffuser.  I turned it on and climbed into bed.  Again, I slept soundly all through the night, not waking up until my alarm went off at 6:00. 

And so it went night after night for months!  I was now a believer.  A BIG believer!

 

Essential Oils for Sleep

There are a lot of essential oils that help the mind and body relax.  My favorite essential oils that support a great night’s sleep are lavender, cedarwood, vetiver, marjoram, Roman chamomile, bergamot, orange, frankincense, patchouli, and sandalwood.

 

Lavender:  widely used for its calming properties.  It eases tension and induces relaxation.

 

Cedarwood:  warm, woody scent that is both grounding and calming, promoting a great night’s sleep

 

Vetiver:  This grass has a rich, exotic aroma that is extremely grounding for emotions.

 

Marjoram:  has a slightly spicy, warm aroma that calms and helps you release emotional stress and trauma

 

Roman Chamomile:  sweet floral aroma is calming and soothing to the mind and body, making it one of the most often used essential oils for sleep

 

Bergamot:  floral citrus aroma is an adaptogen, meaning that it can be both uplifting and calming, depending on what your body needs at the time.  Helps calm and reduce anxious feelings.

 

Wild (Sweet) Orange:  sweet citrus scent and, like bergamot, wild/sweet orange is also an adaptogen that can be either energizing or calming, depending on what your body needs

 

Grounding Blend:  refers to a generic term for essential oil blends from several different brands that include essential oils like blue tansy, frankincense, and spruce.  These blends promote tranquility and relaxation while eases anxious feelings.

 

Frankincense:  warm, spicy aroma promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, and satisfaction.  A great oil to use to help balance your mood.  When combined with other oils, frankincense often enhances the properties of the other essential oils.

 

Patchouli:  musky scent is grounding and balancing for emotions

 

Hawaiian Sandalwood:  rich, sweet and woody aroma instills calm and relaxation.  It’s soothing scent lessens tension, promotes emotional well-being, and has a meditative-like effect.

 

Calming Blend:  refers to a generic term for essential oil blends from several different companies that include essential oils like lavender, ylang ylang, marjoram, and Roman chamomile.  These blends lessen the feeling of stress, calm emotions, and create a peaceful feeling.
