For years I have had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep.
I have tried what seems like every sleep aide known to man, including the ever dangerous Ambien, which resulted in hallucinations!!!
Talk about Frightening!!!!!!! Never Again Will I Take Ambien After Hallucinating From It!!!! I cannot tell you how freaked out I was when it happened to me.
I have heard horror stories about Ambien and what it has made people do without their knowledge, from suicide to auto accidents.
Ambien in my opinion should be removed from the market, but that is a whole different issue. It is some scary stuff!!!! :(
What do I use now instead of prescription drugs?
I use Young Living Lavender Oil to help me fall asleep and stay asleep at night.
Not only does lavender oil help with sleep issues, but it has a whole list of health benefits that are simply amazing.
Here is a small list of uses for lavender oil.
Soothe minor burns by applying 2–3 drops of lavender essential oil to the affected area.
Rub lavender essential oil on dry or chapped skin to moisturize the affected area.
Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to a cotton ball and place it in closets and drawers to scent linens and repel moths and insects.
You may be able to minimize the appearance of scar tissue by massaging lavender essential oil on or around affected areas.
Place a few drops of lavender essential oil on a wet cloth or dryer sheet to deodorize and freshen your laundry.
Diffuse lavender essential oil to minimize seasonal discomforts.
Rub a few drops of lavender essential oil onto your hand and spread over your child’s pillow to help him/her sleep.
Diffuse lavender essential oil to set the mood for a baby shower or social gathering.
Diffuse or inhale lavender essential oil to calm your mind, body, and spirit after a hard day’s work.
