FriYAY: Sleep Edition

FriYAY: Novafuse, Sleep Tight and Sweet Slumber

Sleep. Something we all wish we got more of. And with all the stress, anxiety, and general stir-craziness, you might feel like your sleep is worse than normal. There are some natural ways you can support better sleep, like turning off your devices at least thirty minutes before bed (which is the worst but so worth it) and sticking to a sleep schedule. Another amazing way to catch some better ZZZZs is to start diffusing before bed. Essential oils can help create a calming atmosphere and help you unwind and relax after a long day. This FriYAY, we’re featuring two of our favorite sleep blends and the NovaFuse Diffuser! Let’s look at why these blends deserve to be staples of your nighttime routine.

Plant Therapy Sweet Slumber Roll-On

Sweet Slumber

Sweet Slumber is one of our KidSafe sleep blends. And even though we had kids in mind when we created it, it’s fabulous for adults too. One thing that sets this blend apart from other sleep blends is the fact that it doesn’t use Lavender. While many people love Lavender for sleep and relaxation, we also know that some people don’t care for the smell or don’t react well. Instead, Sweet Slumber blends Cedarwood, Ho Wood, Sweet Orange, Roman Chamomile, and Vetiver to create a calming, soothing, and sedating atmosphere. It’s good for relaxing both the mind and body before sleep.

Cedarwood is soothing and calming. Ho Wood is comprised of predominantly one constituent, linalool, which is known for its relaxing, sedative qualities. Sweet Orange is uplifting, yet calming. Roman Chamomile is great for reducing worry and for decompressing the body and mind. And Vetiver is popular for its smokey, woodsy scent and its ability to quiet busy thoughts and nervousness. Together these oils will ensure that you and your family will get the sweet slumber you deserve each night.

How to Use

To use Sweet Slumber topically, dilute to 2-3% with your favorite Plant Therapy carrier oil and apply to the back or chest approximately 20 minutes before bedtime. You can also add a couple of drops of Sweet Slumber into a tablespoon of bubble bath or shampoo for a relaxing nighttime bath.

Some Things to Know

Plant Therapy Sleep Tight Blend

Sleep Tight

Our Sleep Tight blend is just for the adults. And like Sweet Slumber, it was formulated without Valerian Root (a very sedating oil with a strong aroma) to provide other options for people who prefer a sweeter scent while they sleep. It combines Lavender, Mandarin, Ylang Ylang, Bitter Orange Flower, and Hops Extract for a soothing and sweet aroma that will help calm the mind and body and promote a peaceful, well-deserved night of slumber. Lavender is well-known for its ability to help promote calm and relaxation. Mandarin is another very soothing oil that also has uplifting qualities to it. Ylang Ylang, Bitter Orange Flower/Neroli, and Hops Extract round out the blend with their calming, soothing properties.

How to Use

Diffuse in your favorite Plant Therapy diffuser or add a drop or two on a cotton ball placed near your pillow. For topical application, dilute to 2-3% in a carrier oil or lotion and massage into your legs and/or feet. For a relaxing bath before bed, add 2-3 drops to your body wash or unscented shampoo and add to your bathwater.
