How to treat insomnia with aromatherapy?


Aromatherapy is concerned with aroma, or odour, which induces an effect on the human body. This is because our senses of smell works on a subconscious level, and smell can effect emotional behaviour. Olfactory nerves affect memory and thought. Different odours can stimulate the brain and evoke images or feelings associated with that particular smell; Aromatherapy uses this in dealing with mental and emotional aspects of healing. Different smells are used to stimulate or relax the patient as the need may be.

These oils can help you:

  • Camomile
  • Patchouli
  • Sandalwood
  • Neroli
  • Ylang-ylang
  • Marjoram

You can use ten drops in your bath and soak well. Or for massage use 12 drops in 4 fl oz (100 ml) of a carrier oil.
Or inhale neat and sprinkle a few drops on your pillow.

Camomile is one of the most sedative oils and you could also try using it in a burner, and drinking camomile tea before you go to bed.
