How Essential Oils can Improve Your Sleep

Why do we Need Sleep?

The process of sleep allows the body and brain to recover each day, and not getting enough of it results in a weakened immune system, as well as cognitive dysfunction, think about your mental state the last time you missed a night of sleep. 

Sleep also plays a fundamental role in memory. A lack of sleep prohibits the brain from storing information learned that day, which means you’re not going to effectively recall it later when you need it.

How Do Essential Oils Help you Sleep?

Have you experienced a restless night where your doTERRA oils seemed to work better than your sleep-aid? Inhaling essential oils with chemicals that hold relaxing, calming, or soothing benefits can induce a response within the body for relaxation. This internal response can encourage a restful night of sleep. 

As a result of that restful night of sleep, the aroma creates a positive association within the brain. Positive associations promote the use of this particular oil as part of a healthy sleeping routine. It’s the reason the fragrance of lavender is so calming every time you smell it.
