Sleep Spell & Oil


To Induce You will need:

1/2 oz carrier oil

12 drops bergamot

3 drops lavender

3 drops cypress


In 1/2 oz of carrier oil (I used apricot kernel, sweet almond would also be good), mix 12 drops of bergamot, 3 drops lavender and 3 drops cypress.

To increase the benefits of your sleep, apply a few drops behind your ears, spreading the excess out over your jawline. Do this immediately before bed.

This is a good oil blend for people who have trouble falling asleep at night, or for people who sleep restlessly.

Calming the Mind

Calming the Mind

Sandalwood and Frankincense help to relax by calming the mind.
Excessive mental strain, for example: studying for an exam, can be eased by diffusing
Frankincense perhaps with Bergamot to relax the nerves and uplift the spirit.
Both Sandalwood and Frankincense blend well with citrus oils.
