If you are having trouble sleeping, you can try essential oils as sleeping aids. You just have to figure out which essential oil is best for you. The most popular essential oils are bergamot, cedarwood, and lavender. Bergamot essential oil comes from a citrus fruit’s oil that has been cold pressed from the peel or rind. The scent of bergamot is both calming and bright. Cedarwood essential oil has a woodsy and earthy scent when you need to give peace to your mind after a hectic day. Lavender is a very relaxing oil that you can apply before you sleep. Just rub a drop of the lavender oil unto your palms and smooth it on the pillow.
