The easiest step to improve your health most of us forget to do.


Is it just me or has everyone wished they could learn a language or something like that while they were sleeping?  I have often wished I could accomplish something great during the hours I slept.   Well here you go…!   You can improve your health in many ways by diffusing essential oils while sleeping.   It is as easy as plugging in a diffuser next to your bed.   Depending on your personal health concerns, there is a lot that can be accomplished in a 7-8 hour stretch of inhaling essential oils.   

Ultrasonic mist diffusers are best for bedtime.

For diffusing essential oils for 7-9 hours, an ultra-sonic mist diffuser is recommended. [https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/essential-oil-diffusion-101]  Ultrasonic mist diffusers have a basin that holds water and you add the essential oil drops.  This type of diffuser emits a fine mist into your room which is a combination of water and essential oils.   Who wouldn’t like a little moisture added to their air too?  Buy a diffuser that holds at least 300-500ml of water.  Most diffusers turn off when they run out of water and you want yours to run all night.  A nebulizing type diffuser has an output that is intermittent and only last a few minutes at a time.  Stick with a nebulizer diffuser during the day. 

Which essential oils would be good to diffuse at night? 

Get hormones balanced.  Both men and women can use blends made specifically for them to become well balanced.   Blends with Clary Sage for women and with Cypress for men, are good options.  Could I feel like a new person after diffusing hormone balancing oils, all night?  It is worth a try.

Sleep longer and deeper.  Calming and sleep promoting essential oils or blends are another good option.  I know I could use deeper sleep!   Oils like lavender, clary sage, roman chamomile and ylang ylang are relaxing and calming.  These oils are a great way to relieve stress and over thinking.

Kill germs for hours.  During the current covid-19 pandemic many people are diffusing essential oils or blends that protect against virus, purify the air, help promote easier breathing or help restore sense of smell.   Anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-spasmodic essential oils like lemon, tea tree, eucalyptus and clove can help keep us healthy.  

Let your mind heal.  Cognitive issues, attention deficit and memory function can be improved during a prolonged period of exposure to oils like lavender, peppermint, and rosemary or blends with these essential oils.

Find more happiness.  Improving mood, anxiety and depression is possible from inhalation of floral essential oils like Lavender. [https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30825591/].


Here is the trick.

Get a large diffuser and make sure it is close enough to your bed that you will be inhaling oils all night.  Select a high quality essential oil or oil blend https://www.cureoils.com/Singles and stick with it for a few weeks.  Pay attention to the results and give it some time to work before moving on to another oil.  Follow safety guidelines for using essential oils with children or during pregnancy.  Be aware of other people’s reactions to essential oils that share your sleeping space.  Always play nice when diffusing oils into a room that will affect several people.   Enjoy!
