Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Since going through menopause, I've had constant insomnia, continuously waking around 3:00 a.m. and not going back to sleep. I could rarely get to sleep without medication of some sort. I did finally go on HRT to deal with the hot flashes and insomnia, but I continued to have problems with insomnia. Since using the combination below, I almost always fall asleep easily and stay asleep until around 6:00 a.m.

I put Vetiver and Harmony on the bottom of both feet and toes -- 3 drops each, mixed with a bit of V-6 oil. I put a drop of Peace & Calming across my shoulders. Any oils remaining on my hands, I rub on my wrists and around my head and neck. When I lie down, I breathe in the oils from my hands for a couple breaths. Then, it's off to dreamland I go. Stretching a bit before bed also helps with getting to sleep.

Vetiver is very thick, so I mix it 1/2 & 1/2 with V-6 oil and keep the mix in a separate bottle. Mixed this way, it is still thicker than most oils, so I add a bit more V-6 to the drops that I put on my feet to help spread it in.
