Slaap als een roos met Etherische Olie

5 Etherische oliën voor een gezond slaappatroon

Tossing and turning, waking up every night at 3AM, hot flashes, leg cramps or waking up tired. There’s a reason why sleep medication is one of the most prescribed drugs out there. Both our body and mind need a healthy sleep pattern to process the day and get ready for challenges ahead. 

Healthy sleep results in:

  • Better mental health
  • Better hormonal balance
  • Better metabolism and healthy weight
  • More focus and concentration
  • More energy to chase your dreams

Let’s see how essential oils and natural resources can help you tackle the obstacles that stand between you and some good sleep. Here are the top essential oils known for a good night’s rest. 

Combava Leaf

This essential oil sends you straight into Morpheus’ arms. It calms an overstimulated mind and makes you feel relaxed to gently fall asleep. Here’s an extra tip for people working in shifts: use rosemary to get you energized and combava leaf to help you calm down. It’s a natural way to support your biorhythm 


You can’t turn off your worrying mind? Maybe you are going through all the problems of the day or you anticipate problems still to come. Basil stops the brooding and gives you a little brain massage.

Bergamot peel 

When you’re unable to fall asleep due to feelings of depression or burnout, turn to bergamot to calm your mind and energy. Get the sleep you so desperately need. 

Lemon peel

Lemon works as a dream catcher. It’s the perfect remedy for nightmares and annoying repetitive dreams. 

These tips are only suited for adults. When you’re ready to find out which essential oil does the trick for you, put a few drops on a handkerchief so you can put it away if it’s too much. 

Diffusing is a good method once you’ve found the essential oil suited for your specific sleep issue. 

Sweet dreams!
