Keys to more Zzz’s: A better night sleep.

I Sleep Better with Essential Oils:  By Jim Morris

SleepingKoala_smallI just learned that Koala Bears spend four hours a day eating and the remaining 20 sleeping.  Jealous much?

As I get older and find more things to worry about, I’ve increased my openness to steps to boost my sleep.  After all, a good night’s rest truly is a foundational part of surviving this chaotic life!

If your mind races like mine, one of the keys to more Zzz’s is getting your synapses in a half-nelson, so you aren’t trying to solve the world’s problems at 2 a.m.  Two of Young Living’s over 260 essential oils and essential oil blends are now essential evening wear for me:  White Angelica and Cedarwood.

White Angelica calms and soothes.  Any negative thoughts seem to fade away.

Cedarwood is a manly smell. When I put a dab on my neck, I feel like I should find overalls and wrestle a Grizzly Bear.  Its woodsy scent makes me want to fell large trees. Despite helping me feel Bunyanesque (Paul, not John), its manly smell is pleasant and actually very relaxing.

I have evolved a long way in using these oils as part of my nighttime routine.  I have gone from “Aw do I have to?” to “these are essential steps” in my quest to become more like a Koala Bear.
