Experiencing trouble with insomnia? You're not alone – a lot of people worldwide suffer from this problem. To know more about aromatherapy essential oil, you can go through web.

I have used essential oils (mostly through diffuser) when experiencing this and have found them helpful. After using the oils, I've found myself back to sleeping through the night.


Valerian Oil

The Valerian root has been used for thousands of years for its calming and emotionally grounding effects. One of these uses has been Valerian's ability to promote restful, undisturbed sleep. It is thought that the active components of Valerian balances the body's cycles and promotes sleep. It is also used to treat depression, anxiety and other nervous conditions.

Roman Chamomile Oil

Roman chamomile essential oil is one of the most versatile of all oils used in aromatherapy. A little goes a long way with this oil and its calming and sedating properties and it is considered a natural sedative. It may also have properties to relieve allergy sufferers, bringing comfort to irritated nasal passages, which could be an advantage if your lack of sleep is due to allergic complaints!

Lavender Oil

Lavender is well-known for its calming and relaxing properties. This is probably the most popular essential oil choice for sleep aid, relaxation and anxiety relief. It combines all three of these effects in order to help you relax and get a good night's sleep, and provides a lovely scent for your room as well.
