The perfect Essential Oils to create a healthy relationship with Sleep

Trouble sleeping?

Try using your powerful connection to smell and natural benefits of our first-grade essential oils to help you get the good night’s sleep you deserve.

How would it work?

In short – when we smell something our olfactory nerve kickstarts and sends a signal to our limbic system and amygdala. These are parts of our brain that take care of our mood and memory. Which explains why certain smells can instantly pick up your mood.

Our essential oil blends work in exactly the way. It is a completely natural remedy to some of our daily woes and obstacles. As you build a routine with your chosen blend your body and mind will learn to build a connection to the scent and also reap the natural benefits of the essential oils. So, the more you learn to use your Sleep Well Therapy balm or Candle near bedtime the sooner your body will recognise your routine through the scent and slowly let you fall into your slumber.

Before you try to commit to a new habit, it is important to understand why it’s important for your wellbeing, make sure you read up on why sleep is so important to your mind and body balance to keep you motivated.
