Using this deeply relaxing blend before resting is peaceful for both body and mind, helping to unwind before going to bed. Blended with Juniper, Lavender, Palmarosa and Geranium Essential Oils. (10ml)
Juniper was referenced in the Bible, inferring its ability to relieve fatigue (Sellar, 1997)
Lavender has been documented as a therapeutic agent as far back as the ancient Greeks and Romans. Both the dried foliage and essential oil have remained continuously popular as both therapeutic and cosmetic agents to the present day (Cavanagh and Wikinson, 2002). The plant is commonly purported to have anti-depressant, anxiolytic and sedative properties, thus its essential oil has been used often for relaxation. Reduction of anxiety can aid in getting to sleep, and there is some evidence to support lavender’s reputed anxiolytic effect.
Palmarosa could be useful in lifting feelings of depression that may affect rest, there is some evidence to suggest that geraniol is sedative, as such, palmarosa may aid in promoting a night of more restful sleep.
Geranium is reportedly anxiolytic. Tasev, Toleva and Balabanova (1969) also reported that atomised geranium increased attention spans, concentration capacity and work rhythms, and shortened reflex times in 48 medical students (Price and Price, 2011).
