5 Tips for Better sleep by adding essential oils to your bedtime routine

 

We all know that stress, sleep, and sadness are three words that do not pair well together. Too much stress usually equals too little sleep, which in turn leaves us more tired, more cranky, and more stressed. So how do we stop the vicious cycle?

 

 

Living in a constant state of stress can disrupt many of our body’s processes and create an increased risk for many health problems including:
 
 -Anxiety
 -Depression
 -Digestive problems
- Headaches
 -Heart disease
 -Sleep problems
 -Weight gain
 -Memory and concentration impairment
 It is so important to find ways that we can cope with the stressors of life, and this blog is a great way to start with my 5 tips to better sleep with incorporating Essential Oils into your bedtime routine.


 
 Research shows that not getting enough sleep can affect your mood, relationships and your health.
If you have found yourself in the vicious occasional stress/low sleep cycle, then you have come to the right place!
 
 Let’s get started by taking a look at some statistics:
 
 -40% of Americans get less than the recommended amount of sleep
 -8 out of 10 Americans say they are frequently or sometimes stressed in their daily lives
 -Only 4% of people say they never felt stressed (must be nice!)
 
 While I can’t claim to know their secrets, I do have some tips, tricks, and oils that can help you to stay more calm, relaxed, and grounded during your daily grind that in turn will also support better sleep habits at night allowing you to feel rested and happy in the morning.

Quality Matters
 
 It is vital to know what goes in to the products that you are using on a regular basis. Young Living monitors the process in their plant-based products from seed all the way to seal.
 
 The company abides by very strict guidelines to fulfill this seed to seal promise to us.
 
 This seed to seal promise is very important because it ensures the top-notch quality and effectiveness of each product.
 
 By YL owning their own farms or requiring their sister/partner farms to abide by their strict guidelines of...
 
 -starting with the best seeds
 -using no harmful chemicals
 -hand weeding
 -harvesting at peak times
 -distilling on site
 -and testing minimally three times before sending products off to us
 ...they are giving us products of the highest quality, making them more effective when we use them. 

 


 
 
 The Morning Sets the Mood
 
  How you start your mornings has a huge impact on the remainder of your day. It can even be a very good indication of how you will end your day. If you wake up with your mind already racing, frantically rushing around trying to get things done for yourself and everyone else with your nerves on edge, you are setting yourself up for a day that will be much the same.
 


  Want my secret steps to having the best day ever using the great day protocol? Check it out here! You are now ready to tackle anything the day throws at you!
 
 

 

 

 Early Evening Downtime
 
 
Finally . . . supper is finished, homework is done, sports practices are over, the kids have been bathed and are tucked snugly into their beds . . . you sit down on the couch, let out a big sigh, and you . . .
 
 
 
 Let your mind wander back to everything you didn’t get accomplished that day
 Continue to stress over that argument or phone call that didn’t go your way
 Already find yourself being anxious about everything you have to do tomorrow
 
 
 If that’s you, it’s pretty safe to say you aren’t going to find much peaceful rest waiting for you on the other side of those eyelids.
 
 

 What if your downtime went something like this instead . . . you sit down on the couch, let out a big sigh, and you . . .
 
 
 
 Celebrate everything that you crossed off your to-do list
 Feel at peace with the way you handled every situation you faced because you were able to stay calm and relaxed. Find yourself looking forward to tomorrow with anticipation of all the blessings that await you
 
 
 Sound too good to be true?
 
 
 
 It doesn’t have to be! If you get into a routine of using your calming oils throughout the day, and set your intentions and your mindset to focus on the positive, you will set yourself up for one of the best night’s sleep you have had in a long time!




 
  Here are 5 tips to better sleep using essential oils in your bedtime routine:
 
 
 1. Night affirmations:

This might be one that has you scratching your head but in truth its amazing. Night affirmations would be things you say to yourself out loud about your day. Gratitude but in addition intentions for the next day. Here are some of mine to give you an idea:

I am happy and healthy. I am strong. I am a great leader. I am a patient Mom. I am an encouraging thoughtful wife, etc. etc. 

 

The idea would be to say these affirmations out loud and ideally in front of a mirror. 

 

2. Put your sleepytime oils in your diffuser:

When you’re on my team, we share a million different diffuser recipes with you because we want you to experience all the incredible benefits of these oils, but here’s one to get you started for a restful night’s sleep. 



 

3. Omit Screen Time:

Turn off your phone. Get off the computer. Stay away from the tv. These are all too much stimulation for your brain.

 

4. Take your Essential oil infused supplements: 

I want to share with you all about SleepEssence. This supplement is your bad dream’s worst nightmare! This one little capsule combines four powerful essential oils known for their sleep-enhancing properties along with naturally-occurring melatonin to help you enjoy a restful night’s sleep. Just take 1-2 softgel capsules about 30-60 minutes before heading off to bed, and you will be sawing logs in no time!
 
 5. Use Night Night Spray:

 

-3 oz distilled water

-1 oz witch hazel (can be purchased at local drug store or shopping center in the health and beauty section)

-3 drops Lavender

-3 drops Gentle Baby

-3 drops orange

Mix all of your ingredients together in a 4oz glass spray bottle. Shake well. Just before bedtime, spray one or two sprays on pillows, blankets, or crib sheets.




 

Some additional tips for extra credit!


 -Sip on some hot tea - add even more benefit with a drop of Lemon Vitality
 -Take a relaxing bath - add one cup of Epsom salt with 10 drops of Lavender
 -Light stretches - nothing over the top, just some light stretches or Yoga poses to help ease the tension in your tired muscles and add in some Frankincense and PanAway to your feet for a more relaxing feel
 
 
 
 
 If you have followed all the tips and used all the oils we have talked about, you should be calm, relaxed, and ready to sail right into Dreamland!
 
 
 
 But maybe you’re not. It can be difficult for some to completely turn their minds off and get into a state of full relaxation, and if that is you, we have something for you, too!

 

Be sure you’re fully aware of the things that decrease sleep are:

-Sugar (hi there again you little booger)

-Stress (oh and you...yea we don't like you)

-Too much screen time

-Caffeine

 

It's really important to know these things and know your bodies. If we can work on these FIRST and listen to our bodies, it will make using oils (which are like...WHOA for sleep) even better!

 

Here's one of our favs that we make on the regular in our house!


SLEEPY CREAM

-3-4 T virgin coconut oil

-8 drops Lavender essential oil

-8 drops Peace & Calming essential oil

-8 drops Cedarwood essential oil

-In a small glass container with a lid (like a small Ball canning jar) whip the coconut oil with a fork. Add essential oils, whipping well after each addition. At bedtime, apply to bottoms of feet to encourage a good night's sleep.


 
 
 Once you oil up, if you find you are still having a hard time relaxing your mind and your thoughts are still racing, here are a few other things you can try:
 
 

 Journaling - Ok, so you aren’t going to document your life story here at 1 am, but getting your thoughts on paper helps to get them out of your head. Keep a journal on your nightstand and put the brakes on those racing thoughts by jotting them down.
 Gratitude - Instead of lying-in bed thinking of all the things that could go wrong, force yourself to focus on all the things that have gone right. Need some help? Apply your Gratitude oil to your wrists and inhale
 
 Get Up - I know, this sounds counterintuitive, right? Why would you ‘get up’ if you are trying to get to sleep? If you find yourself tossing and turning and becoming more and more restless, getting up and finding a simple mundane task to accomplish, applying an essential oil, or even grabbing an adult coloring book can be just the thing to calm your mind enough to be ready for sleep. 

 

How to Order if you do not have your kit yet:
 
 There are two ways to order your products. One option is to order as a retail customer. You will spend a lot more money ordering this way, so I do not recommend it.
 
 The BEST way to order your products is to become a member so you can get all of your products at 24% off and have access to many other membership perks like Essential Rewards.
 
 Here is the best option to get started with 
Essential Oils:
 
 My recommendation is to start with one of the
 Premium Starter Kits (PSK). The perk to doing this is that you get even more products at an even better deal than just 24% off.
 
 I recommend The Essential Oils Premium Starter Kit. It comes with 12 different oils (including Stress Away, Lavender, Valor, and Peace & Calming) and a diffuser (which you need to create that calm, relaxing atmosphere before bed, remember??). This is our most commonly chosen kit!
 



If you are someone that suffers from occasional stress, sadness, and low sleep, I hope that you have found this information valuable. Don’t feel like you need to run out, order all the oils and do #allthethings. If you already have one of the oils I talked about, use it; pick just one or two of the tips I shared and start implementing them. The experience with oils varies from person to person. It is important to use an oil for at least five days to see if it will work for you. It may work instantly for you or take a little time. Your body may need to clear out some things before it’s ready. Be consistent yet open to experimenting with other oils to find your magic combo!
 
   
 Here’s to a more relaxed, better sleep and happy life!! Goodnight and Sweet Dreams!

Essential Oils for Beginners..the secret to the best way to Experience Essential Oils

You’ve been seeing these little bottles of what everyone calls essential oils everywhere, right?! And you’ve finally decided to research them yourself! Well, I got you girl!  There’s a lot of information out there. I hear you, I’ve been there. So, from one Mom to another, one woman to another and let’s just call it one friend to another, let me help you out. I have over three years of research and experience helping thousands of Moms’ just like you learn to use essential oils in their everyday life. You can be in an essential oil for beginners class, find it here:






 

First things first, all essential oils are not created equal. In fact, most oils you don’t want to use. Let’s just keep it real, because you know that’s how I roll! The unfortunate thing is that a lot of essential oil companies don’t have the level of quality that you want and expect in oils in everyday products. Many of you, are likely searching for essential oils because you want to reduce your toxicity exposure and support your body naturally. So, then you wouldn’t want to buy essential oils that are full of toxic ingredients, and my right?!?

 

For my family and I, we only trust and use Young Living. And these are just a few of the many many reasons why. I’ve visited the farm. They have a beautiful lavender farm just outside of Salt Lake City Utah. My husband and I were there a few years ago for a retreat and had the opportunity to actually plant the seeds of lavender and other oils into the ground. Talk about an amazing experience!

 

Young living does not use any weed killer, pesticides, or any unnatural substance to support the growth of their plants and essential oils. They handpick every plant, in fact it’s been told, that if you visit the farm during picking season, you’ll be asked to help pick plants. Now, I don’t know about you but I have a huge respect for doing things in an old school way that reassures the quality of the product. And in this case, since you’re using these oils and or products to support your body naturally, we expect the product to be of the most organic True form possible. Also, Young Living has the most Essential Oil blends on the market. That’s because they’ve been in the busy for over 2 decades.

 

You can read more about the impeccable quality, that will not be found anywhere else on www.seedtoseal.com . My recommendation my personal stance is that I always want the absolute best for my family that includes only buying the best products that support our health and wellness. And for me, that is Young Living. The ease and peace of mind I experience when using their products is something that my Mama heart can’t quite explain. When I finally get to rest my head at the end of the night I know that I’ve done the absolute best I can do for my children in terms of the products we have in our home supporting their health and not harming it. This is something a few years ago, I couldn’t say. So I am forever grateful. And I’m on a mission to show moms everywhere and women alike, that you can experience in that same freedom and peace of mind.

 

 

So now that we have the quality aspect out of the way and you’re all into these essential oils, your question is, how do you get started?




I always recommend you get started with the premium starter kit. It’s the best way because it’s super cost-efficient, it retails over $465 however you can get it for just 165 as a brand-new member. Homegirl here is always about the deals  and I’m super excited to share this with you. This is the best way to start your essential oil journey because it includes everything you’re going to need to make you successful in using these essential oils to support your body. The starter kit includes a diffuser of your choice; one that runs for up to 10 hours and has five a different light settings, is absolutely stunning and I get 1 million compliments on it from anyone who visits my home. It also includes 12 of our most popular oils. Essential Oil uses can be very vast but here’s just a few tips on how essential Oils will support your body; sniffles, give your aches and pains a rest, support that beautiful skin, give your kids a sense of calmness, allow you to have the best nights sleep, to help your home smell fresh and clean despite having for weeks. All of this and so much more.

 

In fact, you also get a wholesale membership. What’s a wholesale membership? Think of it as a Costco membership but without the annual fee. As long as you spend $50 a calendar year, you stay a member for life. Pretty sweet, eh? When you need to replace your oils from your starter kit or want to try wanted the other many products in living offers from shampoos to make up to baby wipes to supplements you get a 24% discount. How freaking cool is that?



Now if you think that you only need a couple essential oils to fulfill a recipe or just you want to try a couple that’s cool girl, But here’s the thing you’ll have to pay retail price for those oils. Blah blah blah. I’m a girl who likes the best deal and paying retail doesn’t make me feel all yummy. When I know I could be getting 24% off. So, if your little heart desires just one two or three essential oils that’s totally fine and girl you do but just know you’re paying 24% more than me and or that you potentially could. And you’re not getting any of the other benefits like a diffuser or any of the other incredible oils that are included with the starter kit likely when you get just one to three or four oils outside of the starter kit. Also know that a few oils at retail price usually brings you pretty close to the price of the starter kit, so keep that in mind if you like more bang for you buck!

 

So, you do you girl. I’m here to tell you always to keep it real and share with you the best deal and that is a premium starter kit. I’ve shared thousands of premium starter kits with moms women and my friends alike. These people have shared that they love the starter kit because of the 12 oils which are included as it gives them the best experience in using a variety of oils to support themselves and their families. Plus they get this gorgeous diffuser, which runs for up to 10 hours and has these beautiful light settings -it’s the only one on the market like this. To change your life, the premium starter kit is the way to go.

How to save money+ keep your house smelling fresh without the toxins in candles


 How to save money + keep your house smelling fresh without the toxins in candles. What am I talking about here? Diffusing. Today let’s talk about the benefits of diffusing vs. candles.

 

First let’s start with candles. Let me tell you I’m a former bath + body works aholic. Every fall I’d drop easily $100 on wall plug-ins, candles, hand soaps, lotion, wax warmers and whatever else was on special to put me in the “Fall mood” 

 

Can you relate to this? Are you a Fall so hard girl too? Oh and then don’t forget Christmas. I was all about those scents too.

 

There is something about having my home smelling like every Holiday that puts me in the best mood!

 

But, when I started my journey to live my healthiest life I learned the truth about candles. And I’m going to let you in on all that research today. Buckle up, once you know, you can’t unknow all this. Good news after I lay it all out for you, I’ll show you a way you can still make your home so holiday perfect with all the scents; lotions, soaps, etc without candles. And I promise it will save you lots of money!

 

Did you know candles contain many known carcinogens in their wax and that using them can have long lasting negative affects? Even candle wicks are known to have lead in them and synthetic fragrances 😳did you also know that air fresheners contain large levels of phthalates that is linked to hormonal disruptions and developmental problems 😠

Excuse me...WHAT?! All in the name of making our houses smell better?! I THINK NOT! 

 

Did you know that burning candles wreaks havoc on our respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine (hormones), and nervous systems? They release volatile compounds into the air that we inhale into our bodies.

What's all that mean for us? Asthma. Allergies. Anxiety. And other health issues could be caused by your candles.

 

Did you know?!?

+The word fragrance masks over 3,000 chemicals behind that one single world. When you see this word listed under ingredients, just throw that product away

+Candles contain paraffin, which is a petroleum byproduct that releases carcinogens into the air when heated

+One hour of burning a candle is equivalent to smoking one cigarette

 

Oh and just a bit more to really blow your mind…




"ACCORDING TO THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, HALF OF DEATHS AMONG CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS OLD RELATED TO LOWER RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS CAN BE DIRECTLY LINKED TO 'PARTICULATE MATTER' PRESENT IN INDOOR AIR POLLUTION." 

 

Stats like that stop me in my tracks. They break my heart. We can do better! We HAVE to. 

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Those candles and air fresheners that smell like pumpkin pie and a crisp fall breeze? Toxic. The cleaners so many of us use? Toxic.

JUST NO.

If you wouldn't light up a cigarette in your home then you shouldn't be lighting up a scented candle either. 

NOT SO FUN FACT: VOC concentrations are up to 10X greater INDOORS than out and we are buying those VOCs in our candles and household products!

 

Friends,  I have ZERO judgment here! BUT, I have faith that mamas like us will make CHANGES once we know that we are making an AWFUL MISTAKE.

 

Also, once you stop sniffing those toxic chemicals for a while, you'll find they give you a raging headache instantly! That speaks volumes to me. 

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

We are seriously spending our money to bring illness into our home, mamas! It's insanity! We are buying illness like:

+ Asthma

+ Respiratory Infections

+ Skin allergies

+ Reproductive problems

+ Developmental problems 

+ Cancer

This list is not exhaustive at all. It goes on and on.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

With 70,000 and 100,000 new chemicals in the market over the last 50 years, it's nearly impossible to avoid but every baby step toward TOXIN-FREE LIVING give our children a better chance at health!

If you're still buying illness and burning candles, time to rise up and do your family a big, huge favor. Our children deserve our best! Time to know better and do better, mama!

WE CAN DO THIS.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

I'm gonna throw you an EASY BUTTON to swap our ALL your air fresheners and scented candles.

 

OILS & A DIFFUSER.

SMALL STEP. HUGE IMPACT.

Know better. Do better. Feel better.

 

 

 

 

I now use diffusers and essential oils 🌿in fact, we have one in every room of our house and have them running allll day long! What is super cool is that you can use different oils each time and even combine them to give you a variety of scents. There are a ton of Essential Oil blends that work great! Essential oils also have many benefits so it is more than the smell, they can help with sleep, give you a boost of energy, boost your immune system, can provide you with emotional support and moods, and so much more! And if you don’t have a diffuser you can also make beeswax candles and room sprays with essential oils! The possibilities are endless my friends 🙌🏼

 

I’m sure a lot of you are thinking that essential oils are wayyyy to expensive, but really in the long run you are saving a ton of money! Check out the breakdown below 👇🏼

>>Price difference when switching

-So let's say you get your premium starter kit and you get a diffuser & 12 oils with that. You pay $165

-Those 12 oils have approximately 880-1100 drops total. 

-This means that depending on how many drops you put in your diffuser (let's assume 2) you can get 440-550 diffusing sessions out of JUST your premium starter kit. 

-On the 4 hour setting, that is 1760-2200 hours of diffusing time for $160

-The 411g jar (medium size) candle from Yankee Candle averages 65-90 hours of burn time.

-You would need 27 candles to = 1760 hours of burn time.

-On the Yankee website their medium jar candles are $25/each 

 

This means that you would have to buy $675 of toxic Yankee Candles to get the same amount of diffusing time your premium starter kit would give you!! 😱

 

Oils for the win 🙌🏼now I’m off to diffuse valor and lavender to help me relax this evening 💆‍♀️

Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways from taking them internally, using them aromatic  (diffusing), or topically. But, before we get into the specifics and some of my favorite oils and how to use them, I think it’s important that we address the quality of essential oils. When it comes to the market of essential oils, it’s like the wild wild West out there. Everyone is selling it and claiming the incredible benefits yet very few brands have the impeccable quality you want, expect and deserve when using oils.

 

For my family and I, we only trust and use Young Living. And these are just a few of the many many reasons why. I’ve visited the farm.

The lies behind what's lurking in your kids products...

I am the mother of two incredible little boys; Tyler and Connor. You could say I’m pretty obsessed with them! I am pretty sure most of the moms or parents out there are as well with their own kids. We all want what is best for our kids. WE want them happy, healthy and safe. We want them to grow up and be incredible people. But I’m not convinced that our conventional society wants the same.




I want to start by saying the only opinion that matters here, is you as the parent; you are the only who is responsible for your children. Not your friends, parents, pediatrician or the media. You were chosen to be their Mom so your Mom gut is never wrong. Please don't let anyone ever convince you otherwise.

Before I had my oldest, I was a normal person that just went to do her groceries and chose the things I bought based on price, my mood and my needs. I did not read labels, I did not spend hours in a row googling ingredients or reading studies and articles. I did now know the power of a Toxin Free Home. Well, once I had my Son, everything changed. It started with something small, like an unexplained rash that sent me on a deep dive into research. And then, I had a miscarriage while trying for a second baby. And the first thing that comes up when you google miscarriage is Toxic Products you’re exposed to. I was floored. There weren’t toxic products in my home…or so I thought.

I then realized the laundry detergent we had been using (Dreft) actually had a fake “baby label”. It said it was for babies, it had a baby picture on the package and it even said it was pediatrician recommended! Once I started the research, I found these ingredients:
polyethylene glycol 4000 (which Skin Deep scores as 5-8)
And about a dozen other ingredients that make up the “gentle” clean of Dreft.  EWG (Environmental Working Group) score: D-F, depending on the formula.


Laundry detergent was the first in line. After this, it all turned into a snowball that kept rolling and getting bigger and bigger. Diapers with bleach in them, baby wipes with more than 5 chemicals as ingredients, baby formula containing ingredients that can result in brain damage, body wash with more chemicals and fragrances than you could count, body lotions with artificial colorants and half a page of chemical ingredients, you name it!

Since when are these things good for babies? Actually, since when should ANYONE, be allowed to say these things are good for babies or any people of any age?!?!
As a new parent, that didn’t have much contact with babies before I had my own. All these things hit me right in my face and left me mad. So so mad. If there’s one thing I know about being a Mom, we protect our babies with all we have. And I was failing at doing this. I know I am not the only new parent out there who thought someone was responsible enough not to allow companies put life-threatening chemicals in products that go on babies.




I also know that not all parents get to stumble upon all the information I did. Something should obviously be done on a higher, bureaucratic level, but an angry blogger like me can’t do it. What I can do though is inform as many people as I can about how they should keep an eye on their baby’s health. So, that’s what I’m doing. That’s my mission Mama. I’m here to help. If you want to know what’s lurking in your baby products check out my freebie class so you can empower yourself with the tools to make any changes you might need to make here.




WHAT CAN I START DOING TODAY?
Cleanout and organize.
Throw away all the “baby” products that have chemicals in them. 
Ditch your Toxic Cleaner. Toxic Free Cleaning and specifically toxic free cleaner is the best way to clean your whole home. In fact, we use the same cleaner to clean our floors, to windows to toilets. How’s that for minimalism?

Read the labels.
I cannot stress enough how important this step is. I became a label freak ever since I had my boys and not just when it comes to products that I buy for them, but for the rest of the family as well. If you don’t have this habit, you will be amazed by how much CRAP goes into food, care products, even the ones that are labeled for babies + kids.

Do your research.
If you read a label and it seems like you are reading a foreign language, it’s probably not a good sign, but just to make sure, put google to good use and search the ingredients. There is so much information out there from official sites that will clear out any doubt you might have about an ingredient.

Consider your Budget
A lot of people think that making natural, healthy choices will be more expensive. Well, that’s simply not true. Invest in your health now or you’ll invest in your sickness later is a phrase I’ve heard over and over again and I’m on a mission to share affordable toxic free home products for all. So, we can be healthy throughout our abundant life for many many years to come!

Always ask the questions you have on your heart Mama, you know best!
 
Most companies are making products with one big main purpose: MONEY. They will not bother telling you there is a better choice out there than their product because they want you to buy it! Be smart and think ahead of them, do your homework and know what you put in your shopping cart.
Make your own

 My website is chocked full with DIY make your own recipes for everything or if that’s not your thing you can try a single line of products we use that’s delivered right to your door (this is usually the option I choose).

RESOURCES
I compiled a list where parents can find good resources when looking for natural products for their babies:
 
It’s a wild world out there and unfortunately, many times it is run by MONEY, not by compassion and definitely not by having people’s best interest at heart. So be the one who is smart enough to unmask all the horrible things some companies are doing. Be the one who stands out from the crowd and chooses something better for their kids. Because every purchase we make is a vote towards their future. Vote with your dollars friends, don’t allow these big companies to continue to harm our babies.
What are your opinions on the subject? What kind of products do you use for your baby? Are you seeking for a toxin free home? Have you ever been tricked into buying something you thought was good for your baby?

XOXO,
Jess
