Peace and Sleep… Zzzzz

Ohhh how my life has changed! From insomniac to snoozing in late! Who woulda thunk?

Tangerine, orange, ylang ylang, patchouli and blue tansy (enter scratch and sniff) is a powerful blend. Just two years ago I was up all hours of the night dreaming of getting a good night’s sleep, now melatonin, valerian root and Young Living’s Peace and Calming in the diffuser and 1 hour I am TOAST! That sweet feeling of being rested in the am and not being exhausted all day has returned. For years with fibro I dreamed that this feeling would return but even after many sleep meds I was not successful. Enter Peace and Calming and enter Great Sleep! This will be one oil I will NEVER be without. When traveling this is in my stash for sure!! A few weeks ago the dreaded empty bottle had me in tears. Thanks to a friend she gave up a bottle for the cause of my sleep, it only took a bit of begging! I truly have a love affair with this oil!

6 Uses for Peace and Calming Essential Oil

Have a Relaxing Bath Let’s start with the most luxurious use! Mix 4-6 drops of Peace and Calming essential oil blend with 1/2 cup of epsom salts, then place directly into a warm bath for a relaxing bathing experience.

Halt Teeth Grinding Diffusing Peace and Calming essential oil blend while you sleep calms your body and can halt teeth grinding! Improve general sleep In addition to stopping teeth grinding, Peace and Calming essential oil blend can also help anyone for better quality sleep.

There are five different oils in Peace and Calming Blend. They are listed below along with a brief description of each oil.

The Nose Knows

I have not found an appliance I have been more in love with! Love my Keurig, microwave, hair dryer, Crock Pot and Magic Bullet, but none hold a candle to my Home Diffuser!

Never heard of a diffuser? Neither had I before July 2013 until I entered the world of essential oils. And now I CAN NOT live without one! This is what it is! It combines a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy that safely releases essential oils into the air to eliminate odors and create a spa-like atmosphere. Sounds glorious right? Well let me tell you it is! What one product can take you back to your childhood, put you to sleep, help you when you are sick? None… The key is in the nose!

diffuser

The olfactory system includes all physical organs or cells relating to, or contributing to, the sense of smell. When we inhale through the nose, airborne molecules interact with the olfactory organs and, almost immediately, the brain.

Molecules inhaled through the nose or mouth are also carried to the lungs and interact with the respiratory system. Thus, inhaled essential oils can affect the body through several systems and pathways.

Interaction with the Limbic System (Emotional Brain)

During inhalation, odor molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system, which is commonly referred to as the “emotional brain.”

The limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance (Higley & Higley, 1998). This relationship helps explain why smells often trigger emotions. Knowing this, we can hypothesize how inhalation of essential oils can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects!

“Smell is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years we have lived.” Helen Keller

So, depending on the oil you place in the diffuser the reaction of the body is different.

Once taking 2 different sleep medications now just Cedarwood Oil, Peace and Calming Oil (tangerine, orange, ylang ylang, patchouli and blue tansy), valerian root and melatonin I can get a great night’s sleep. This was something I once thought an impossibility without a script! Natural products allow me to function daily with a clear brain. two years ago I would have NEVER believed this to be possible.

I now have 3 diffusers! One in my bedroom for sleep, kitchen for the common areas and in my classroom (my home away from home).

CAUTION: I had someone who had heard me talk about my diffuser and they ordered one online. Within a week theirs had broken and they wanted to know how long mine lasted. All I can say is Young Living’s diffusers come with a 1 Year warranty. I would NOT be buying mine online from Amazon or from Whole Foods as I like that I can return it within a year if it were to break. I can say my first two diffusers, that are over a year a still going strong. My latest one the Bamboo Diffuser used EVERYDAY!!
