How often do you look at the clock and think, “It’s bed-time. Why am I not asleep?” Then the spiral of emotions wind you up, rather than down, as you contemplate all the tasks that you need to do in the morning, you review the stress of the day, and consider all you didn’t get done yet.
Are you looking for a way to break the cycle? First, look at the ways to adjust your sleep routine. By winding down before bed, you’ll be able to sleep deeper and feel better.
What about feeling uptight during the day where you want to relax but not necessarily sleep?
dōTERRA Vetiver can help you feel relaxed to reduce stress whenever you need to focus on a task or decrease uptight feelings. Simply massage 2 drops on your wrists, heart, and big toes then take several deep breaths to slow your heart rate. Smelling essential oils is the quickest way to improve your mood.
Another option for using Vetiver is to diffuse it with Lavender, doTERRA Serenity®, or doTERRA Balance®. You can also add a few drops of Vetiver essential oil to a warm bath for a deeper relaxation. Imagine the warm water with the exotic aroma that’s sweet, woody, and caramel, all at once.
Bonus, Vetiver works well at night as well (I have a roller bottle on my headboard that I roll on my big toes and the back of my neck when I wake up too early).
