We all need sleep to heal and restore ourselves. When it is about children, sleep deprivation could be highly disruptive to leading a healthy and happy life. Rather than embracing medications that could have detrimental and serious negative effects, let’s explore some natural alternatives which can help your child get to sleep. Essential Oils are naturally derived chemicals that have minimum possible side effects on children. Apart from being useful in the treatment of several diseases and ailments, these Oils are tremendously good when it comes to helping your child get a good night’s sleep. They will help the child feel peaceful, lower his stress and anxiety and clear his mind to help him relax. With that said, here are some of the best Essential Oils that help your child sleep peacefully:
 

Best Essential Oils To Help An Infant Sleep

 

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang, I am glad that I have to write this word instead of pronouncing it. Pronouncing “Ylang Ylang”, I almost appear like a dog with peanut butter stuck at the roof of his mouth. However, this Oil is a marvelous choice if you’re the mother of an infant who is not able to sleep properly. This Oil is floral and smells very fruity.
 
Sandalwood Essential Oil
I like the woodsy, rich Oils, and sandalwood is not any exception. With infants, a little bit of this Oil goes a long way when it comes to making them fall asleep. However, this Oil might not be affordable for everybody.
 

Best Essential Oils To Help A Toddler Sleep

 

Bergamot Essential Oil
I have always had a great attraction to bergamot since when I used this Oil for the first time. Most of the Oils based on citrus fruits generally have somewhat of a stimulating effect, but bergamot is certainly different. It’s both bright and calming. This is among the first Oils you should reach for when you want a toddler to sleep peacefully. You can add this Oil to all of the sleep blends you use for your child.
 
Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
Roman Chamomile has been used since medieval times for its relaxing effects. This Oil helps with child insomnia and fixes hormonal imbalances in toddlers. Roman Chamomile also has sedative effects that prevent nightmares in toddlers.
 

Here Is How To Use Roman Chamomile To Help Your Child Sleep:

Add 1-2 drops Roman Chamomile Oil to 1 tablespoon of fractionated Coconut Oil. Massage this blend onto your child’s feet, back, arms and legs.
Diffuse Roman Chamomile in the air before taking your child to bed.
 

Best Essential Oils For Baby Sleep

 

Marjoram Essential Oil
The first time I read about Marjoram Essential Oil, all I could possibly think about was making use of it in cooking. However, its benefits go beyond that! Not just marjoram Essential Oil is good at soothing joints and muscles, but it additionally excels in creating a peaceful sleep for the child of any age.
 
Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender helps balance the entire body. It can help ease headaches, heart irregularities and anxiety. Babies love this Oil because it comes with a sweet and floral aroma. Lavender can help them feel comfortable and relaxed. In order to use Lavender to help your child sleep, try the subsequent methods:
 
Recipe 1
While giving your baby a warm bath, add 10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil and 1 cup epsom salt. Soak him in for a minimum of 20 mins so that his mind releases the stress acquired in the day.
 
Recipe 2
20 mins before going to bed, apply 1-2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil towards the bottom of wrists, spine and the back of your baby’s neck and feet.

 

Best Essential Oils For Kid’s Sleep

 

Vetiver Essential Oil
Vetiver is rich and earthy smelling and it’s the most preferred Oil I use when I have to help my kid “shut-off” for the night. It takes a while to become accustomed to the smell of this Oil, so if you are using it for the first time on your child, you might want to consider mixing it with lighter Oils like Roman Chamomile or Lavender.
 
Peppermint Essential Oil
Diffusing peppermint in the air will not only stimulate good digestion due to its beneficial action on the stomach and liver, but it may also help soothe the emotions, providing an appropriate environment for sleep after dinner. Peppermint’s analgesic properties also make it useful for clearing the headaches. Do not use Peppermint on your child if he is on homeopathic medicines. This Oil is also not meant for highly sensitive skins.
 

Few Important Essential Oil Recipes That Can Help A Child Sleep

 
Recipe 1 – A Relaxing Spray
Mix Sweet Marjoram, Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang Essential Oils and Vanilla bean extract in equal amounts. This blend is a good fix for anxiety and depression. In addition, it soothes the nerves, making it easier for your child to sleep. Here is how to use this blend:
 
Make use of a spray bottle and spray the blend to your sheets and pillows before going to bed.
Apply 1-2 drops topically to the temples, wrists and the bottom of the feet.
 
Recipe 2 – A Detoxing Foot Soak
Add 1/4 cup sea salt, 1/4 cup Epsom salt, and 1/2 cup baking soda into a clean container that is big enough to accommodate your feet. Fill the container with tepid water and add in Lavender, Chamomile, Sweet Marjoram and Ylang Ylang Essential Oils in equal amounts. Soak your child’s feet for a half-hour. Doing so will help your child relax and make him sleep easily.
 
Recipe 3 – Nighty Pillow Mist
2 drops Camomile
4 drops Petitgrain
8 drops Lavender
Mix this blend with 60 ml distilled water and use as a spray. This will help your child sleep.

Pros:

The pleasant aroma of Essential Oils keeps the child fresh all day long.
Cons:
Allergies in children are often not known. Using Essential Oils can sometimes aggravate certain allergies.

 

Spending sleepless nights is no fun. The more you think, the more your body tenses and more unlikely it is that you will not get sufficient rest in the night. Fragrances have a very powerful influence on our mood and emotions. The aromatic molecules in Essential Oils can easily cross the blood / brain barrier and directly affect the parts of the brain that control depression, fear, anxiety and stress. Although serious cases of insomnia can’t be cured by using Essential Oils alone, these Oils will definitely make it easier for you to reduce stress and relax your body and mind. With that said, here are some of the best Essential Oils for insomnia relief and conditions related to it:

 

Best Essential Oils To Help You Get Rid Of Sleeplessness

 

Lavender Essential Oil
Being a long time sufferer of sleeplessness, I’ve always been fascinated by Lavender. It has such a calming and attractive aroma that I add it to my bath water, my perfume and even the deodorant I use. Its deeply relaxing fragrance has also been used in popular anti-anxiety drugs like Lorazepam. Lavender Essential Oil is also an effective anti-depressant with pain relieving qualities. It can help lower blood pressure levels and ease the digestive and nervous system.
 
Geranium Essential Oil
Geranium Essential Oil could be deeply relaxing due to its hormonal balancing attributes. This calming floral Oil can also blend well with lots of other Oils.
 
Chamomile Essential Oil
Roman Chamomile can help in sleeplessness caused due to chronic stress, muscle aches, headaches and nervous disorders. It can additionally be helpful in soothing irritation in children and colicky infants.
Chamomile can help you calm down your neural system and improve the efficiency of your digestive function, making it especially useful for young kids that suffer from sleeplessness due to indigestion. Use a few drops of this Oil in the bath to chill out before slumbering.
Other Essential Oils that are worth keeping in mind for dealing with conditions like sleeplessness are Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Rose, Jasmine and Melissa.

 

Best Essential Oils For Relief In Insomnia And Anxiety

 
Wild Orange Essential Oil
Wild orange is an Essential Oil that has not only helped me with my anxiety but it has also boosted my mood. When diffused, it gives feelings of contentment and well-being. Another fun fact: you can consume this Oil orally! Only therapeutic grade Oils should be consumed orally, I do not recommend oral intake of low quality Essential Oils.
 
Bergamot Essential Oil
Bergamot is considered effective in relieving stress and tension (and it is particularly good for the skin!). It comes with a citrus like aroma that helps elevate the mood. One study found out that a mixture of Bergamot and Vanilla is quite effective at reducing the extent of insomnia caused due to anxiety. Bergamot can be diffused in the air or applied directly on the skin. Additionally, this Oil can be highly effective in alleviating headaches.
 
Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Eucalyptus is a quick remedy for muscular pains and aches. It helps to calm down the brain and initiate an optimistic perspective as well.
 
Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense can be helpful in the treatment of insomnia caused due to anxiety. This Oil can calm down your breathing while at the same time relaxing your mind.
 
Sweet Orange Essential Oil
Sweet orange is useful in cases where the cause of insomnia is nauseous headaches, bad appetite, and stress. This Oil also helps in reducing frustration, moodiness and irritation.
 
Palmarosa Essential Oil
Palmarosa is calming and uplifting. It can help with stress, exhaustion, poor appetite and anxiety.
 
Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint enhances your mental awareness and concentration. It helps with bodily fatigue and uplifts the spirit.
 
Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary is useful in insomnia caused due to muscular pain and anxiety. It can boost your self-confidence and calm your nervous system.

 

Few Other Essential Oils That Specifically Target Insomnia

When it comes to curing insomnia, there are a variety of Essential Oils available to offer natural relief. For example, Neroli can specifically target sleep disorders like insomnia. Inhaling the fragrance of this Oil helps with calming mental anxiety, which ultimately relaxes the mind and makes it possible for you to sleep peacefully. Neroli Essential Oil can also be used to help people cope with shock.
 
Another Essential Oil that can help with battling sleep disorders is Melissa. This Oil is most effective when inhaled. Other Essential Oils that are considered highly efficient at combating insomnia are Passion Flower, Valerian, Violet Leaf, Linden Blossom, Mandarin, California Poppy, Amyris and Catnip. Each one of these Oils can get you best results when inhaled following proper procedures of aromatherapy.

Some Pros And Cons Of Using Essential Oils For Insomnia:

Pros
While medicinal sleep aids can offer you temporary relief, they are not the healthiest and long-term solution for insomnia. Using Essential Oils can naturally eliminate the root cause of insomnia.
Unlike medicines, using Essential Oils does not cause any dependency
Cons:
Some Essential Oils might aggravate allergies in some individuals and also might not be suitable for those with sensitive skins.
A nightmare is a dream occurring during Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, leading to sensations of strong horror, fear, distress or severe anxiety. This phenomenon has the tendency to happen in the latter part of the night and oftentimes awakens the sleeper, who is likely to recall the entire dream. For those suffering from this condition, you may be nervous to sleep at night fearing another nightmare. You may also feel scared once you get out from your nightmare and struggle to fall back to sleep again. In addition, nightmares might sometimes trigger upsetting thoughts and provoke unfavorable emotions such as anger, rage and disgust.
Research has indicated that the use of essential oils allows the nervous system to calm down and relax. Distilled from different plants, essential oils improve your emotional and physical well-being and reduce stress, which in turn helps you sleep and unwind easily. With that said, here is what you should know about using essential oils to get rid of sleep issues like nightmares.

 

Top 7 Essential Oils That Are Proven To Be Useful In dealing With Sleep Disorders Like Nightmares

The best seven essential oils that can be used to relax your mind and body and help you sleep peacefully include lavender, roman chamomile, bergamot, sandalwood, mandarin, rose and vetiver.
 
1. Lavender
The essential oil of Lavender can be used ahead of drifting off to sleep. Research has shown that lavender eases insomnia and anxiety: it will help you sleep more soundly and you’ll wake up the next morning feeling refreshed and energized. Put a few drops under your pillow or diffuse it in your room prior to bedtime. John Parkinson, a 17th-century apothecary, wrote that lavender is “especially good for all griefs and pains of the head and brain.”
 
2. Roman chamomile
Often used in the form of tea to soothe upset stomachs, the essential oil of Chamomile has outstanding restorative properties that can help an individual suffering from conditions like nightmares and night terrors.
 
3. Bergamot
Helping you to stay fresh, the essential oil of Bergamot includes a citrus aroma that boosts your sense of well-being.
 
4. Sandalwood
Essential oil of Sandalwood is extracted from trees that are at least 4 decades old, and trees as old as eighty years are said to produce the best kind of Sandalwood oil. Being a potent relaxant, Sandalwood eases the nervous system and helps you feel relaxed.
 
5. Mandarin
The essential oil of mandarin carries a mild scent that works as a successful treatment for nightmares. Besides vaporizing, you can just spray four to five drops of this essential oil on a pad of cotton and set this by the bed or the pillow. You can also make your own mix by blending mandarin with carrier oil like Jojoba. The outcome is undoubtedly a scent so lovely that it will offer you a tranquil sleep that you deserve.
 
6. Rose
In order to keep the nightmares off your sleep, I suggest that you put a drop of Rose essential oil on your palms and rub it onto your soles, in a clockwise direction. Why apply it on the soles? The soles of your feet are the most permeable section of the body. It is then easier for the small essential oil particles to permeate through the skin and get into the blood. Thereafter, it is only a matter of minutes before the oil is spread throughout the body.
Other essential oils you can blend with Rose to enhance its effect include helichrysum essential oil, patchouli essential oil and sandalwood essential oil. You can either use them by themselves or blend with rose essential oil to promote a deeper and calmer sleep.
 
7. Vetiver
Vetiver is very grounding with an earthy aroma. This essential oil helps you to calm down emotionally. If the root cause of your frequent nightmares is physical, then vetiver is the essential oil you should use.
 
Valerian is relaxing, lowers the blood pressure, improves the digestion and relieves spasms. It can bring on a restful sleep without any dangers of addiction.

Sleep apnea is a kind of sleep disorder that is believed to have an impact on nearly 40% of the population these days, and 50 % of the total instances are critical enough to warrant remedy. This problem is observed in the form of brief interruptions in breathing happening continuously throughout the night. There are two main kinds of sleep apnea, of which the most commonly seen is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is the result of the relaxation of the tissue present at the back of the throat that obstructs the air passage. Another kind of sleep apnea is referred to as Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), which is caused due to the incapacity of the brain in sending normal breathing signals to the muscles.
Should you suffer from sleep apnea, you are likely to wake up feeling worn out, irritable and restless. Conditions like sleep apnea don’t only affect your sleep, but they can also impair the sleep of the rest of the members of your family.

Have few drops of the Oil on your fingers and massage the Oil onto the lower part of both the nostrils. This remedy is generally enough for me to get rid of my occasional sleep apnea.

However, the easiest way of using this Oil is inhaling its steam.
 
Here is how I use this Oil to get the most out of it:
Ingredients:

Safety measure: Use thyme Oil cautiously if you suffer from high blood pressure.
 
4. Valerian Essential Oil
 
 
Valerian root has long been used as a natural sleep aid. Its therapeutic attributes are generally not known; however, research has concluded that the brain-calming effects of Valerian can improve the quality of sleep to a significant extent. As sleep apnea patients often have a restless mind, Valerian can ease the symptoms considerably.
 
5. Passionflower Oil
Passionflower is acknowledged for being able to set off a soothing effect and offer relief from pain. In cases of central sleep apnea, which is known to be a neurological ailment, passionflower extract initiates a calming impact on the central nervous system. This Essential Oil is also believed to have an anti-spasmodic effect that calms down the muscles and helps you get a good sleep. You may add this non-addictive Essential Oil in teas or consume it in the form of supplements.
 
6. Chamomile Oil
 
 
Chamomile is another efficient Essential Oil that promotes relaxation and sleep. Chamomile can prove to be very efficient at relieving nervousness and boosting calmness in central sleep apnea patients.

While the anxieties of life can invade your ability to sleep well, or maybe you trade your sleep for more work, not getting adequate sleep or not sleeping well is not something you can ignore.
You might be surprised to learn that chronic sleep deprivation can, for any reason, substantially affect your health, efficiency and safety. It is also important to realize that sleep deprivation is often caused due to inappropriate sleep conditions that you might not even be aware of. The worst part is that many people remain undiagnosed for years while trying to figure out the reason they cannot sleep.
Essential oils have been used since ages for conditions like sleep apnea and insomniafor their calming and soothing properties. While being completely natural, they often work better than the traditional sleep aids that affect the body adversely.
Here are some other essential oils you can use to help yourself get much better sleep at night.
 

Top 8 Essential Oils For Better Sleep

 

1. Lavender
Lavender helps to stabilize the body and relieve headaches, anxiety, heart irregularities and nervous tension. It has a sweet and floral scent that puts you at ease and helps you relax. In order to use lavender to help you sleep, I recommend that you try the following techniques:
 
Hot bath
Add 10 drops of lavender to 1 cup of Epsom salt and let it dissolve. Thereafter, add this blend to your bath water. Soak yourself in this water for at least 20 minutes to allow your mind to relax.
 
Gentle massage
20 minutes prior to bedtime, apply 1-2 drops of lavender essential oil to the spinal column, feet, wrist and back of the neck. You can also diffuse the essential oil of lavender into the air prior to bedtime.
 
2. Roman chamomile
Roman chamomile was used in the ancient times to train and relax the minds of the Roman soldiers before battles. This essential oil minimizes hormonal imbalances in the body, which makes it useful in dealing with sleep issues like insomnia. In addition, the sedative properties of roman chamomile helps you achieve a more relaxed sleep. You can combine 1-2 drops of Roman chamomile essential oil with 1 tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil and massage your back, legs, feet and arms. You can also diffuse the oil into the air prior to bedtime.
 
3. Vetiver
Vetiver can be used for several therapeutic purposes for its antioxidant and calming properties. It can also be used as base oil for many essential oils. If you are among those that are suffering from sleep deprivation due to muscle pain or hormonal imbalance, then vetiver is the essential oil of choice.
 
4. Sandalwood
Sandalwood has been known for its skin softening and mood rejuvenating properties. In addition, the fragrance of sandalwood promotes the release of melatonin (by stimulating the pineal gland), a powerful inducer of sleep.
 
5. Peppermint
You can spray peppermint oil in the air, which helps to promote good digestion of food and therefore prepare your body wind down for bedtime. However, do not use this oil if you are on homeopathic medications or have delicate skin.

5 Ways To Use Essential Oils For Best Possible Results In Sleep Deprivation:

 
Here is how to use essential oils to improve your quality of sleep:
 
1. Use in a diffuser
The best way to benefit from the effects of essential oils is using them in a diffuser. I have a small diffuser at home that I use to disperse essential oil particles in the air. The particles of essential oils are so tiny that they easily enter the olfactory nerves inside your nose and in the limbic system, which is the seat of emotions in the body. I generally diffuse lavender essential oil in my bedroom 30 minutes before bedtime.
 
2. Direct inhalation
If you do not have a diffuser, you can just put a drop or two of the essential oil of your choice on your palm, cup them around your nose and breathe in deeply. Do this for several minutes. I have found this to be a reliable way to use essential oils as a sleep aid.
 
3. Massage
You can rub 1-2 drops of essential oils on your shoulders, the soles of your feet, tummy or back of neck. I often use a little amount of carrier oil such as jojoba oil to help myself spread the oil properly.
 
4. Warm water bath
Mix 5 drops of essential oil with epsom salt and add this blend to warm water bath while filling the bathtub. Soak yourself in the tub for 20 minutes.
 
5. Warm compress
In order to sleep better, you can give your back a warm compress with 3-4 drops of the essential oil of your choice.
 

Few Important Essential Oil Recipes To Help You Get A Good Night’s Sleep

Mix 1-2 drops of Roman camomile oil with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Massage your legs, arms, back and feet with this mix. You can also diffuse a little of this blend in the air prior to going to sleep.
Add 10 drops of lavender oil and 1 cup of Epsom salt in the warm bath water. Soak yourself in this water for 20 minutes to relax your mind.
Apply 1-2 drops of lavender essential oil to the back of the neck and the feet 20 minutes prior to going to bed.
For a perfect pillow mist at night, add 4 drops of Petitgrain, 2 drops of chamomile, 8 drops of lavender to 60 ml of water and use the blend as a spray.

 

Few Precautions To Keep In Mind When Using These Essential Oils

The use of essential oils can in some cases aggravates allergies. In such cases, you will need to consult your physician.

Sleepwalking, medically known as somnambulism, is a behavior disorder originating during the deep sleep and resulting in complex behaviors such as walking while sleeping. While the main cause of this condition is lack of sleep, it is more common among children compared to adults. There is a series of complex behaviors involved in this condition, among which walking during sleeping is most apparent.

Other symptoms of this disorder include sitting up in the bed and looking all around, walking in the room or house, and sometimes leaving the house and walking or driving long distances. It is a mistaken belief that a sleepwalker should not be awakened while he is sleepwalking. On the contrary, it can be hazardous if a sleepwalker is allowed to do what he wants to do.
Research has highlighted that sleepwalking can impair your mental performance for life. Unfavorable environment, medical conditions and emotional stress are just some of the factors responsible for conditions like sleepwalking. Before you resort to artificial methods of dealing with your problem, you may want to try out some natural, gentler remedies.

Lack of sleep can lead to fatigue and tiredness during the day. Without adequate sleep, you may have difficulty focusing on your work or daily chores properly. Continued lack of sleep can have serious physical and psychological consequences. Snoring not only reduces the quality of your sleep keeping you sleep deprived throughout the day, but also makes you vulnerable to a host of medical conditions including obesity , nocturia, headaches and GERD.

 

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring is the result of the narrowing of the air passage during sleep. Excessive flabby tissue at the throat, long uvula, a soft palate or large tonsils are some of the prominent causes behind the narrowing of the air passage. In some cases, the deformities of the cartilage or nasal congestion due to allergies may be the reason behind snoring and other related problems.
While there are many home remedies and artificial aids available to keep snoring at bay, I have found the use of essential oils to be most effective and safe against this problematic health condition. Essential oils have many medical applications, and there is a growing range of essential oils to choose from, each of which has powerful medicinal properties.
 

How To Use Essential Oils For Snoring?

Gargle
Something as simple as gargle can help you cure your problem of snoring. Just gargle a few minutes before going to sleep at night with your favorite blend of essential oils and you will see an improvement. I personally favor the use of essential oil of peppermint for gargle; just be careful not to swallow it.
 
Diffuse
Diffusion is the best way to make the most of essential oils and in turn yield excellent results when it comes to snoring problems. If you do not have a diffuser, you may consider one similar to this type.
 
Massage
Mix the essential oils of your choice with a suitable carrier oil to make a blend. You can then rub this blend on your feet, neck and chest. Also try dabbing just below the nose.
 
Hot steam
If congestion is the culprit behind your problem of snoring, inhaling hot steam mixed with essential oils can do wonders. Make sure your bathroom is warm enough to produce enough steam vapors.
Just pour boiling water into a large bowl and add three or four drops of essential oil of tea tree / eucalyptus. Inhale the steam through your nose for at least 5 minutes keeping a towel over your head. Follow this schedule every day during bedtime until the congestion clears.
With that said, here are some of the best essential oils I would recommend to get rid of snoring quickly and safely.
 

What Essential Oil Help With Snoring – 5 Best Essential Oils 

 
1. Essential oil of Thyme
Thyme is one of the best essential oils for snoring relief. Studies conducted on Thyme suggest that the oil can be used to cure respiratory diseases, strengthen the immune system and treat muscle and joint pain.
For quick relief in the problem of snoring, mix thyme with a carrier oil such as jojoba oil (this is important because pure thyme oil can cause irritation in the skin) and apply to the base of the toes every night. As per traditional reflexology, spots at the bottom of the feet are responsible for the reflex actions of the neck area.
You can also consider spreading the oil through your diffuser. When using a diffuser, start diffusing half an hour before you plan to go to bed to make sure that the oil is well spread by the time you are ready to go to sleep. If the odor of the pure thyme oil is too strong for you, you can use thyme in blends of oils that target breathing.
 
2. Essential oil of Marjoram
Another powerful essential oil to help with snoring is the essential oil of marjoram. Smell the oil before going to sleep to keep the airway open during the sleep. Once the effect of this essential oil kicks in, your body keeps on responding to the effect of this oil for a long period of time. This means that if marjoram is run in a diffuser, you do not need to keep the diffuser running all night.
The effectiveness of marjoram for the problem of snoring varies from person to person and each body reacts differently to this oil. According to the study conducted on the effects of Marjoram, only a few snorers reported that their snoring stopped in the first night itself with the use of this oil. It took other snorers six to eight weeks to completely get rid of snoring. So do not give up too soon!
 
3. Essential oil of Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus essential oil is a decongestant that helps open the airways. In addition to helping with the problem of snoring, Eucalyptus is also a common remedy for colds and flu as it opens up the nasal passages and helps to breathe better.
The best way to use eucalyptus essential oil to get rid of snoring and which is completely safe for both children and adults is as follows. Prepare a medium-sized bowl of steaming hot water and add 3-5 drops of eucalyptus oil to it. Place a clean, dry towel on your head, tilting your head over the bowl and breathe deeply. Try to stay in this position for 4-6 minutes.
 
4. Essential oil of Peppermint
The anti-inflammatory property of peppermint helps to reduce inflammation of mucous membrane of the nose and throat making it easier for your body to regulate the breathing. Remedies based on essential oil of peppermint also work well for temporary snoring caused due to allergies, cold or dry air.
Add few drops of the essential oil of peppermint to a glass of water. Gargle with the solution before bedtime being careful not to swallow the solution. Do this every day, until the desired result is seen.
If the dry air and congestion is causing your snoring, add a few drops of peppermint oil (you can also use eucalyptus oil) for 30 minutes in a humidifier before going to bed. Run humidifier overnight. This helps to open the airways and prevent snoring. You can also rub little amount of peppermint oil on both sides of the nose before bedtime.
 
5. Olive oil
Olive oil is an anti-inflammatory agent that works on the tissues surrounding the airway and reduces snoring by providing free passage of air. You can also bank upon olive oilfor reducing the vibrations in your throat, which ultimately reduces snoring. Just take two or three sips of olive oil before going to bed every day. I often add honey to the olive oil to make it taste good.

More Home Remedies For Snoring

Ghee
Ghee, also known as clarified butter, has medicinal properties that can help open the blocked nasal passages. This helps you snore less and sleep better.
Heat gently a small quantity of ghee in a microwave oven. Use an eyedropper to put two or three drops of ghee in each nostril. Do this every day before going to bed and after waking up the next morning.
 
Cardamom
Cardamom is an expectorant and decongestant that can easily clear your blocked nasal passages. Free air passage results in less snoring. Just add half teaspoon of cardamom powder in a glass of warm water and drink 30 minutes before bedtime.
 
Turmeric
Being a strong antiseptic and antibiotic, turmeric treats the inflammation of your nasal passage and helps reduce snoring. Use turmeric with milk to help yourself breathe freely during sleep and strengthen your immune system.
My bedtime schedule sometimes includes drinking a glass of warm milk with 2 tablespoons of turmeric added 30 minutes before bedtime. For permanent relief, follow this remedy everyday for a period of 30 days.
 

Important Notes

Quality
When buying essential oils, make sure that you get only the high quality and therapeutic grade essential oils. There is no standard process followed by the manufacturers to ensure the quality of the oil. So, it’s the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that they get excellent quality essential oils.
The bottle of essential oils must mention all the ingredients used in the manufacture of the oil. The availability of such information ensures that the company is reliable and conducts business in an ethical manner.
 
Purity
Look for purity data on the package and buy only the products that contain 100% essential oils. Keep away from those who have less or do not mention the percentage on the package. Check the smell of the product and you should be able to tell if the product is of good quality.
 

Precautions To Consider When Using Essential Oils

Do not use essential oils undiluted and make sure that they do not get into your eyes. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you should not use the oils unless advised by the doctors. If possible, always do a small patch test to make sure that you are not sensitive to the oils being used.
Essential oils could well be a permanent solution for the treatment of snoring. However, you should consult your doctor so that the cause of your snoring is identified. In addition, give your body a chance to lose weight to avoid problems like snoring in the future; keep yourself hydrated and sleep with your head propped up.
Stress is one of the body’s mechanisms meant to deal with threat; however, the problem begins when this feeling of threat stays in for longer duration. Stress can lead to both positive and negative outcomes.
 
When you feel stressed due to something happening around, your body takes it as a threat and responds by releasing certain chemicals into the blood. These chemicals help the body to release more energy, which is often a good thing if the reason behind the stress is physical danger. However, this extra energy and strength would work negatively if the stress is an emotional reaction to something and there is no outlet for the energy that is created.

 

What Are The Different Types Of Stress?

Acute stress
Of all forms of stress, acute stress is the most common as it is caused by the daily demands and pressures that each of us has to face.
 
Episodic stress
When you experience acute stress on a frequent basis, then that becomes episodic stress. This type of stress is usually seen in people who have unrealistic and unreasonable demands on themselves. In order to achieve certain goals, they keep themselves under constant pressure attracting a lot of stress.
 
Chronic stress
Chronic stress is the exact opposite of acute stress. It is neither exciting nor thrilling but dangerous and unhealthy. Chronic stress tears a person’s life and makes his mind and body vulnerable to a plethora of diseases.
 
Signs and symptoms of chronic stress include:
Dry mouth
Shortness of breath
Stomach ache
Headache
Sweating
Frequent urination
Muscle tension
Why Sedatives And Prescription-Based Medicines Are Not Recommended For Stress Resolution?
In most cases, prescription based sedatives can deal with all kinds of stress; however, the problem with the use of sedatives is that they create dullness in the brain, which may ultimately lead to depression. Depression in itself is a problem grave enough to handle. Moreover, when you are on drugs, you fail to determine the real cause of your stress and take the necessary steps to deal with it.
 

Why Essential Oils Can Be A Great Home Remedy For Stress?

Essential oils are one of the safer ways to deal with stress. These natural substances not only help you obtain immediate relief but at the same time eliminate the deep-rooted cause of your stress with no side effects at all. They are easy, convenient and quick to use. You can diffuse them in your work place or home, wear them the whole day or keep them in your pockets. In addition, essential oils can be used in massage therapies to enhance the effect of meditation.
 
Therapeutic grade essential oils can penetrate the cell membranes almost immediately, cross the brain-blood barrier and then reach the brain’s emotional center. So, it is just a matter of minutes before their effect can be seen on the body and mind. Just take care that you buy pure therapeutic grade essential oils.
Having said that, here are some of the best essential oils I would recommend for quick relief in situations of stress and tension.
 

Best 7 Essential Oils for Stress

 
1. Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender is considered to be the most common and effective oil for stress relief because of its calming and relaxing properties. It helps in restoring the nervous system and reduces irritability, sleep problems, nervous tension and the frequency of panic attacks.
 
2. Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary essential oil is the second most effective oil for relieving anxiety and depression after lavender. One of the major benefits of this oil is that, it is very helpful and effective for those who are emotional in nature. It helps in situations of shock, panic attacks and grief. According to a study conducted on pregnant women, substantial relief in stress and anxiety can be achieved after a 10-minute warm water footbath in the essential oil of Rosemary.
 
3. Vetiver
Vetiver essential oil has grounding, tranquil and reassuring effects. It is used in conditions of trauma helping patients to restore their sense of self-awareness and feel calm and stabilized.

According to a study, ylang when mixed with lavender and bergamot reduces the psychological stress, serum cotisol levels and blood pressure. Use this combination once per day for 4 weeks.
 
5. Bergamot
Bergamot is calming oil that has a distinct aroma and taste. While being helpful at treating depression and insomnia, Bergamot is most effective at reducing the stress. An interesting study conducted on men and women above 25 years old concluded that the blend of lavender and bergamot can reduce stress, depression and anxiety. The blend of lavender and bergamot can reduce blood pressure and pulse rate keeping you more calm and relaxed. However, it is important to note that Bergamot is photosensitizing, i.e. may react to the skin when exposed to UVA light. I would recommend not using this oil within 12 hours of the exposure to the sun.

Why Use Essential Oils For Best Possible Relief In Seborrheic Dermatitis?

Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin condition commonly seen in areas where sebaceous glands have a more prominent presence. The condition is neither infectious nor harmful but it can cause persistent discomfort in your life. It is observed that one in every 20 Americans suffers from this condition, which can have extended inactive durations followed by flare-ups.
 

What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Seborrheic Dermatitis?

Scaling and soreness are the two dominant features of seborrheic dermatitis. In addition, there might be oily or grainy scales on your face and other parts of body causing a burning sensation. The extent to which this condition can affect your day-to-day life can vary from a minor case of dandruff to thick and scaly patches on your body that cause uncontrollable itching. The most common areas on the face that are prone to being affected from this condition are the folds around your nose, your forehead, your inner eyebrows, and the external ear canal. The upper eyelids and eyelid margins can also be added to the list of body parts that are vulnerable to this disease.

If you are suffering from seborrheic dermatitis and have tried every kind of pharmaceutical medication, then essential oil therapy by an experienced naturopath is just what you need for sustainable relief. Below are some of the best essential oils I can confidently recommend for seborrheic dermatitis.

4 Best Ways To Use Essential Oils For Seborrheic Dermatitis

In order to obtain relief in seborrheic dermatitis, essential oils can be used in several different ways. Here is how you can use them in order to fight seborrheic dermatitis:
 
No. 1 – Combining the essential oil with carrier oil
The most popular and most extensively used technique for fighting seborrheic dermatitis is creating an easy mix of your preferred essential oil and carrier oil and thereafter applying it over the affected areas. This technique is simple and there are no hassles involved. You just have to mix about 90 % carrier oil with 10 % tea tree oil and apply over the affected parts of your skin. The solution should be left as it is on the skin for 5-10 minutes and then cleansed using a soft and warm washcloth.
 
No. 2 – Cleaning the affected skin with anti-fungal soap enriched with essential oils
There are specialized anti-fungal soaps available in the market, most of which consist of essential oils as their vital ingredient. Few of the essential oils that are generally found in such soaps include neem, peppermint, oregano and lavender.
 
No. 3 – Facial Rinse
This approach is the least likely of all the above methods to have side effects. Simply blend a couple of drops of pure essential oil in about a half cup of clean water (either boiled or prepared through reverse osmosis). Rinse your face with this solution for at least three times in a day for quick relief.
 
No. 4 – Clay mask
One of the best ways to fight seborrheic dermatitis is preparing an essential oil clay mask. Prepare the clay mask referring to the instructions mentioned on the product package and add just 2 drops of tea tree oil into it. As soon as the tea tree oil is mixed, follow the instructions written on the clay mask package for correct application.

 

Few Precautions To Bear In Mind

Some essential oils can cause irritation to the eyes and hence it is not advised to apply them on the skin near the eyes.
If there is any sign of inflammation that you suspect to be caused due to the essential oil you are using, do not delay in getting the guidance of a certified healthcare professional.
