We have shared a few of our favorite sleep essential oil blends, but feel free to use your own favorite essential oil.  Lavender oil is always a go-to for relaxing, which works well for sleep.  If you suffer from allergies then you may want to use an allergy blend to help with breathing so you rest peacefully.  An anxiety blend may also be beneficial to you.

Safety & Contraindications

Are you sure you're using essential oils safely and effectively? Are you confused by dilutions and conversions?

 Let me help take out the guesswork and download my FREE roller bottle guide HERE.

Essential Oil Roller Bottle Dilution Guide

When it comes to drug interactions and contraindications, there are literally textbooks devoted to the study of essential oil safety and, as a trained researcher and doctor, I think it’s important to note that there is virtually no research out there discussing how essential oils interact with drugs in human clinical trials. This means that essential oil safety is still a wild frontier in the science community and no one really knows (for certain) how essential oils will interact with drugs or your body.

Nonetheless, properly diluting your essential oils is fundamental to safety and effectiveness because they are highly concentrated plant compounds. To help you along your journey, I have a created an easy-to-use dilution guide that you can download for FREE to make sure that all of your topical applications are safe and effective for the entire family.

As with as medicine and natural therapies, this is only a guide and be sure to discontinue use if any adverse reactions occur and consult your physician immediately.

      Blend 1: Patchouli & Cedarwood
      Blend 2: Lavender & Vanilla Absolute
      Blend 3: Vetiver & Roman Chamomile
      etc…

    What kind of water should be used with sprays with essential oils? Distilled?

      Hi Michelle, so you dilute the oils?

      You should never use oils undiluted…

          Undiluted oils can cause a sensitization reaction. More and more people are developing allergic reactions to oils due to over/prolonged use.

          We need to remember that the oils that we have today are NOT what people used in ancient time. They are much more concentrated and need to be diluted. 🙂

    Hi Dr Z. I’d like to try a EO combo that’s good for relieving anxiety. I don’t really have much stress but am stresses by little things. I’d had to resort to Xanax to fall asleep which works well. I d like to replace that. I have a fairly clean diet for Hashimotos which I follow thru Izabella Wentz so I don’t think it’s that. Thanks!
