I’ve always been a night owl ever since I can remember. It can be an inconvenience especially when I need to get up early in the AM for chores and errands. I always end up looking and feeling like a zombie the whole day. I’ve tried so many tips and tricks I’ve found online to help me relax and sleep earlier, but counting sheep can only do so much.
A lot of my friends and peers suggest turning to Melatonin, but I’d really rather not indulge in chemicals and extra hormones, and sleeping pills are completely off the table! I always turn to my essential oils for solutions that these tiny bottles can help solve, and my Blood Orange essential oil and Amyris essential oil have worked wonders for me!
What I Love About This Recipe
- I get the best sleep of my life!
- It smells really, really good.
- I feel rested the next day and helps me to be in a good mood all day.
What’s in the Magnesium Sleep Spray Recipe?
Amyris Essential Oil
The Amyris Essential Oil can help alleviate stress and anxiety* in an instant, which makes it highly popular in aromatherapy. It’s great for calming nerves, and this calming and soothing effect can aid with restful and deep sleep.*
Blood Orange Essential Oil
Blood Orange Essential Oil, on the other hand, is also a favorite of mine for diffusing before I hit the hay. It can help alleviate feelings of anxiety and stress* that can cause you to toss and turn at night.
I’ve discovered magnesium flakes that can aid and promote a deep and restful sleep with the help of these two amazing oils and a few other ingredients!
Fractionated Coconut Oil
A carrier oil such as Fractionated Coconut Oil is needed in this recipe to dilute the essential oils and make them safe around your skin!
