JCP Posted April 3, 2022 Share Posted April 3, 2022 I've had good results using lavender essential oil in aromatherapy for insomnia. I place a diffuser on the nightstand and turn it on 30 minutes prior to going to bed. Other essential oils that claim to help induce sleep are chamomile, clary sage, ylang ylang, bergamot, sandalwood, valerian, and some companies offer blends (or you can make your own); but lavender works for me, so I haven't had to try anything else. Learning to meditate taught me to empty my head of all thought and concentrate only on the breath, which comes in handy when you're trying to fall asleep. It's not always easy to quiet your mind from over analyzing and over thinking before you drift off and it requires practice. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
