Fragrant chi for restful sleep

Fragrant chi for restful sleep

Restful sleep is essential to our sense of health and wellbeing. Diffusing essential oils gently before going to sleep is an excellent way to encourage stress release and promote a restful nights sleep.

The following essential oil blend is excellent to fill your bedroom with relaxing, immune supportive fragrant chi before going to sleep. It quiets the mind and supports our immune system as we rest and rejuvenate at night.


2 drops Organic Lavender essential oil (lavandula angustifolia): calms strong emotions, releases pent up energy, immune stimulant & tonic for the mind and body.

2 drops Organic Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis): eases stress, moves out stagnant chi and aids digestion

4 drops Organic Frankincense essential oil (Boswellia Carterii): encourages healing on all levels, deeply calming and restorative allows us to connect to spirit and our inner reserves of strength and healing.

FOR CHILDREN 5-12yrs old reduce the total drops to 4:- 1 drop lavender, 2 drops frankincense and 1 drop orange

Diffuse this blend in the bedroom for 20mts before retiring. Turn off diffuser when going to sleep.


NB Treat essential oils as medicine

  • They are highly concentrated pure extracts from the plant world (it takes a huge amount of plant material to make just a few drops of essential oil).
  • If at any time you feel any discomfort from diffusing any of these oils, stop at once.
  • It is always a good idea to test if any oil is ok for you: open the cap and hold just the cap at a distance sniffing the air – if you feel any constriction in your breathing, then this oil is not for you.
  • Small animals and young babies and those with compromised immune systems need to be treated with extra care.
  • Diffuse oils at a safe distance in a well ventilated space.
  • Allow for small animals to be able to leave the room if they wish to do so – remember their sense of smell is much more intense than ours so care needs to be taken not to overwhelm their system.
  • Start with a half strength diffuser blend if in doubt and work from there.
  • You will only need 8-10 drops total to fill your space with their beautiful scent.
  • Diffuse for 20 mts at a time for best effect.
