Goodnight Moon Sleep Diffuser Blend Recipe

Sleep is so important! That’s a no-brainer. We need sleep to stay healthy physically and emotionally.

Unfortunately, more than a third of Americans lack or have trouble sleeping. While there is a long list of drugstore sleeping aids available on the market today, many of them have harmful side effects. One important factor to HELP promote sleep is the setting we’re sleeping in. Is the room dark enough? Cozy enough? Do you have the right mattress?

To help create an environment that is conducive to rest and relaxation, we formulated an all-natural sleep diffuser blend recipe using calming essential oils. This diffuser blend creates the perfect atmosphere for sleep to help you get a good night’s rest and wake up refreshed and energized the next day.

What’s in This Goodnight Moon Diffuser Blend Recipe

Sleepy Essential Oil

Infused with Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lavender, and Ho Wood Essential Oils, our very own Sleepy Essential Oil Blend helps set a calming atmosphere for sleep. The oils in this blend also help ease stress and anxiety1 that often impact sleep quality and duration as shown in a study.

Copaiba Essential Oil

No more counting sheep with Copaiba Essential Oil. This oil affects the central nervous system by reducing locomotive and exploratory activities as shown in a study2, thus inducing sleep. The warm, rich honey-like aroma of Copaiba Oil also soothes negative feelings, another culprit of sleep disturbance.

Juniper Berry Essential Oil

Juniper Berry Essential Oil provides a calming effect due to its soothing sweet aromatic pine-like smell. This is a wonderful essential oil addition to this recipe to help soothe nervousness for better rest.

Balsam Fir Essential Oil

The sweet, softly balsamic aroma of Balsam Fir Essential Oil is so soothing that Native Americans used the needles of balsam fir to stuff pillows for a restful sleep. The beautiful grounding scent of balsam fir really sets a wonderful sleeping atmosphere–especially if sleep evades you.
