Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I started not being able to sleep through the night about 15 years ago. I had been on a diet and would wake up hungry. Well, after getting off the diet I kept waking up at the same time and could just not get back to sleep. For 15 years I never slept even 5 or 6 hours unless I was sick. I usually only got about 3 hours several nights a week. I HATED seeing 2, 3 or 4 o'clock when checking the time, knowing I would not fall asleep again, and my night was over!

After a while I could not stay awake to watch a movie to save my life. I would always fall asleep in the middle of it, even at the theater. I was just so sleep deprived.

Enter the oils in my life. Ahhhh, now if I ONLY sleep 6 hours, I think I have a bad night. I usually sleep between 7 and 8 hours every night. I wake up nicely between 6:30 and 7:30 without an alarm, and feel good.

Here are the oils I use to assist me in sleeping. Also, now I can skip a night and still sleep, but if I skip 2 nights in a row -- well, let's just say I will regret it til morning.

On the big toe, I put RutaVaLa and Cedarwood Essential Oils. All over the bottoms of my feet I rub Thyme Essential Oil (it keeps me from waking myself up snoring). I rub Clary Sage Essential Oil and Lavender Essential Oil on my pillow.

That's it, try it and sleep tight!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: fatigue,anxiety — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
2.Associated topics: sleep,insomnia,fatigue,anxiety — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
3.Associated topics: anxiety — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
4.Associated topics: anxiety — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
5.Associated topics: anxiety — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
6.Associated topics: anxiety — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
7.Associated topics: sleep,anxiety — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
