    your bath more relaxing. Soak into its goodness to do away with all your worries, and consequently,
    insomnia as well.
  • TOPICAL APPLICATION: Lavender is rather gentle as
    an essential oil and applying this oil on skin actually helps soothe your senses and induce sleep.
    Right before you turn the lights off, apply a few drops of diluted lavender oil on forehead, temples
    or directly below your neck. You will have a peaceful sleep at night. Don’t forget to dilute it
    with a carrier oil of your choice.
  • DRENCH THE PILLOW WITH LAVENDER
    OIL
    : Well, in case you are not comfortable applying lavender oil on skin, you may choose to
    pour a few drops of this hypnotic oil on your pillow and reap the same benefits. Does that make you
    afraid of the oil tarnishing your favourite pillow covers? Just add 15-20 drops of lavender oil to
    50 ml water in a spray bottle. Shake well and spray the solution on your pillow around 10 minutes
    before you go to bed. While your eyelids get heavy with slumber, you can be sure your pillows are
    not stained.
  • DIFFUSE: Pour some lavender oil in a plug-in diffuser
    and let the aroma of lavender spread across the length and breadth of your bedroom. Not only does it
    create a spa-like environment, but it also helps relieve stress and you doze off in no
    time.

CAUTION

  • As for topical application, don’t
    apply lavender oil around eyes.
  • If you start sneezing or you get rashes while using
    lavender oil, it means you are getting an allergic reaction. In that case, discontinue its
    use.
