On a rare night when you actually crawl into bed at a decent hour, you stare at the ceiling, eyes wide open, mind racing and a good night’s sleep feels more like a distant dream with every passing second. You’re not alone! Over time, sleep deprivation can reduce immunity, up your risk of diabetes and heart disease and even make you gain weight. Sleeping pills can never be always advisable. How about a natural sleep balm?
Here I am with a recipe for DIY Lavender Sleep Balm for a good night’s sleep. Before heading on to the recipe, let us have a look at the benefits:
- Lavender essential oil is well-known for it’s calming effect.
- Contains all natural ingredients
- Easy to make
- Works effectively without the hangover morning feeling
- A perfect gifting option!
Things you need-
- 15 drops lavender essential oil
- 10 drops bergamot essential oil (optional)
- 1 oz. bees wax
- ½ cup coconut oil
Start mixing your coconut oil and beeswax over a low to medium heat. (It may be easier to shred the beeswax bars before melting.) If you don’t shred the beeswax bars it just takes a little longer to melt. Once you have your coconut oil and beeswax melted, allow to cool slightly. After a little cooling period, add the Lavender and Bergamot essential oils. Then pour the sleep balm into the containers and allow to sit until formed back into a solid mix. Rub on temples, foreheads, necks and shoulders and pulse points for a good night’s sleep!
