Aromatherapy is an ancient method of using fragrances where people inhale or apply them to the skin to promote physical and mental health. Studies show that regular aromatherapy can reduce stress and anxiety and help improve sleep quality.
How Does Aromatherapy Work?
Researchers believe that aromatherapy can improve sleep quality by inhibiting the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, helping patients relax and enjoy deeper sleep. What’s more, aromatherapy promotes sleep by activating serotonin and other neurotransmitters involved in sleep regulation.
How to Use Aromatherapy to Improve Sleep?
You can use essential oil by putting four drops of it on a cotton ball. Then, put the cotton ball in a container, hold it close to your face, and take a few deep breaths. You can also place the container near your pillow until the following morning. If the smell is too strong for you, you can dilute the oil with a carrier oil, such as coconut, olive, and jojoba oil. Also, if you are unsure of the concentration of the essential oil, 2% may be a good starting point.
Four Essential Oils for Sleep
Lavender is one of the most widely researched essential oils for improving sleep quality and can be applied to the skin directly without dilution, making it more convenient for application. Many scientific studies have demonstrated that lavender can help improve sleep, reduce stress, and alleviate pain. In addition, some researchers have also found it may reduce inflammation and accelerate wound recovery.
Experts believe that bergamot may help reduce blood pressure and heart rate, resulting in a calming effect. When you are angry or irritated, bergamot oil can make you peaceful.
Moreover, bergamot oil can help improve your digestive and urinary systems. If you have gastroenteritis or urinary inflammation, you can massage diluted bergamot oil on your belly for alleviation.
A study in 2017 found that cedarwood oil users sleep longer overall and wake up less frequently at night or in the morning. Some people also like to use cedarwood oil for footbath by adding 5 to 8 drops of cedarwood oil into warm water.
Beyond improving sleep quality, cedarwood oil can benefit your skin as well. It can help heal acne, eczema, sores, and wounds.
Sandalwood oil is famous for its mildly sweet woody fragrance. Sandalwood itself is used for furniture and herbal medicines. Its oil has been used for ages in spiritual activities, such as prayer and meditation. Some studies have shown that sandalwood oil can make people refreshed and concentrated. Like cedarwood, it also helps improve skin condition and sleep quality.
