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
