Today I’m continuing my How To Stay Healthy Over 40 series. Last week I shared about Solace, one of the essential oils I use. Today, I’m talking about two more essential oils I love and how I use them.
Hands down, sleep and the lack of, has been a huge problem for me. Everything I read says sleep is important for our health.
But for some reason when we hit our forties the majority of women say they wake up some time during the night and can’t go back to sleep. Three o’clock seems to be a magic number for most of us.
I have never taken prescription sleep aids because I was too scared of them. I did try over the counter sleep aids and they worked some of the time but I didn’t like taking them either.
Lavender essential oil has been my life saver! I absolutely love it and I use it every night before I go to bed.
Lavender is a natural sleep aid that helps to calm and relax. I put it on the bottom of my feet and use a drop on my pillow. It smells wonderful and I’ve slept so much better!
Lavender can be used for everything! When in doubt, use lavender. Burns, cuts, rashes, and the list goes on. This by far is my favorite oil!
This next oil is a great one too! Elevation is a blend of several oils. I don’t go anywhere without this one, it stays in my purse.
Elevation is the perfect blend for those moments when you need to be revitalized. This oil can elevate your mood and increase your energy!
I use this one on my wrists first thing in the morning. If I am tired during the day, I’ll apply it again. If I’m stressed or having a down day this is my go to oil!
Both of these oils are amazing! I don’t understand how an oil can help with sleep, anxiety, mood, energy etc. but I can tell you from experience they do work.
So how many of you struggle with sleep? What about anxiety & stress? What do you use to help with these issues?
If you’re interested in ordering any doTerra oils you can go here. (I’m not in the essential oil business but because I’ve ordered a kit, I can sell them. I’m only offering this to you all because I know you might want to try them. If you know someone who sells them by all means get the oils from them.)

Have a blessed day!
