How to use essential oils to dive into the arms of Morpheus?
Essential oils can be used in several ways depending on individual preferences and the desired effects:
- Use an essential oil diffuser: to create an atmosphere conducive to sleep, essential oils can be diffused in the bedroom using a specific diffuser. The ideal is to place a few drops of essential oil in the diffuser at least 1 hour before going to bed.
- Consuming essential oils: Some essential oils can be directly ingested. Before consumption, it is important to follow the instructions for use and the dosage recommended by the manufacturers. To consume them, simply place a few drops of oil on a teaspoon of vegetable oil or honey, or on a square of sugar.
- Massage yourself with essential oils: Essential oils can also be applied directly to the skin. To do this, you must first mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil (sweet almond, coconut, avocado, etc.) and apply the mixture to pressure points (wrists, ears and temples). Pure essential oils are often very concentrated and can irritate the skin. It is therefore advisable not to apply them directly to the skin without diluting them first.
- Take a bath with essential oils: taking a hot bath, one to two hours before bedtime, promotes relaxation and helps improve the quality of sleep. To benefit from the virtues of essential oils while lounging in a hot bath, simply dilute a few drops of oil in shower gel for example.
All essential oils should be used in moderation. In addition, the use of essential oils is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women and children. They are invited to consult the advice of a health professional before using any essential oil.
