Deep Sleep Roll On: Natural Treatment for Sleeping Disorder with Aromatherapy

by Nidhi Gupta 01 Sep 2022 0 Comments

Having a sound sleep is as crucial as food, clothing and shelter. Lack of proper sleep harms our overall health and our skin as well. Dark circles, acne, pale skin, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and dryness are some of the side effects of insomnia. Gulping down sleeping pills is not recommended at all as they have their own after-effects. Sleep medicine in homeopathy also fails sometimes to give you sound sleep. If you are also the one who spends their nights changing position here and there, switch to aromatherapy and get a full night of sound sleep.

Ayurvedic Medicine for Deep Sleep

There are several effective sleep medicines in ayurveda which helps you to get rid of insomnia. But those medicines don’t suit all. For instance, Ashwagandha is considered as the best sleep medicine in India, but it causes liver problems, diarrhea and vomiting to some people. Hence aromatherapy emerges as the sleep medicine specialist and without the fear of any side effects.

Which essential oil is good for insomnia?

Nature holds the power to cure almost every ailment on the planet. You needn’t ingest those bitter natural herbs for insomnia treatment at home.  Simply inhaling the scent of these therapeutic pure essential oils is a proven remedy for insomnia.  Lavender, Cedarwood, Geranium, Chamomile essential oils are the natural remedies for insomnia. Let’s understand how.

Lavender essential oil- It is the most popular essential oil for relaxation and better sleep. It is well known to enhance sleep quality, and make your mind as fresh as a daisy. As a result, you feel alert and energetic when you wake up at the morning.

Cedarwood essential oil- Likewise lavender, cedarwood also has sedative properties. It aids to detoxify your state of mind and eliminate the adverse sentiments.

Chamomile essential oil- It is also sedative in nature, thus helping you to fall asleep quickly. Its aromatic molecules alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression which help to make you sleepy.

Geranium essential oil- Antidepressant properties of Geranium oil relax your mind and reduce stress, depression, and gloominess. Your mind reaches into a state of calmness and deep sleep.

Deep Sleep Roll On: Insomnia therapy

You might wonder how does aromatherapy induce sleep. A study was conducted in the year 2005 wherein it was found that lavender essential oil promoted the slow and deep wave sleep amongst the participants, and they found themselves more energetic the next morning. When inhaled, essential oils for sleep  relaxes our central nervous system and promotes phase 3 sleep- the deepest sleep stage of non-rapid eye movement. These essential oils trigger the release of serotonin into the brain and turn it into melatonin- a hormone which is released in the darkness and associated with control of the sleep–wake cycle. These essential oils regulate sleep cycle, minimize sleep disorder, diminish mental fatigue, relax mind, and regulate hormonal imbalance. Deep Sleep Roll On at Mystiq Living is one of the most popular, most effective and widely used treatments for sleeping disorder in India.
