Essential oils can help to lift your spirits and feel completely connected to nature even if you’re tied to a desk somewhere in the corporate world trying to make sense of numbers and words.

There are a few essential oils that will aid in giving you a great night’s rest.
Here are a few to consider:
Chamomile Essential Oil – wonderful calming agent.
Lavender Essential Oil – stress reliever, anti-depressant & sedative.
Veviter Essential Oil – helps to relax and calm you.
Dilute the main essential oil with a carrier oil, such as sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, olive oil or sesame, do a test on a patch of your skin to make sure you won’t have any harsh reactions to it. Once your skin doesn’t react, pour a bit of the oil in your warm bath water and be prepared for a night of complete and solid rest.
