There are many ways to use essential oils to ease your sleep problems. One approach is to massage your neck, shoulders, and any other areas with a relaxing essential oil blend. You could also shake a drop of a sleep-promoting essential oil onto a cotton pad and place it by your pillow just before you’re going to sleep, or unwind with an essential-oil-enhanced bath before bedtime. It’s important to note that self-treating a condition and avoiding or delaying standard care may have serious consequences. If you’re considering using essential oils, make sure to consult your physician first.
