Eight years ago my first child was born. After a few months, she started to sleep through the night, but I was not sleeping through the night. I never had trouble sleeping before then. Motherhood changed my sleeping pattern drastically. I became a light sleeper and would wake up at the drop of a pin. I soon found myself not sleeping more than three hours a night and it started to take an ugly effect on my wellbeing. I tried all kinds of over-the-counter sleep aids and was waking up even more groggy with mind fog to boot. I was irritable and had no energy. I was desperate to find a solution. 


I asked everyone about how they got to sleep and listened to anyone who had sleeping issues. I was a hairstylist at the time and one of my clients told me her husband never slept a full night in his life, but recently he tried an essential oil blend called Peace and slept 8 hours straight. At this point, I would try anything.  I ordered the essential oil and used it how she told me her husband used it, rubbing it on the back of his neck and bottom of his feet. The first night I tried it, I slept 9 hours! After that, I was hooked and ordered a diffuser and placed the diffuser next to my bed, and added the Peace oil in it. I was so excited that something genuinely helped me sleep that didn’t make me feel like I had a hangover the next morning when I woke up. 


Since then I have discovered some other essential oils that help me with sleep. Digestzen is an essential oil to help de-puff you, for lack of a better word. When I eat too close to bedtime and I feel like I am calorie sweating and can’t sleep, I reach into my nightstand and roll digestion on my stomach going in a clockwise circle and within a few minutes, I feel less bloated and can go to sleep without stomach cramps.  


I changed careers two years ago and took a teaching position, my sleep pattern was utterly disrupted again because I would wake thinking about all the things I had to do the next day and would get carried away thinking about different ways or ideas to help specific students. I started sleeping 4 to 5 hours a night and would just wake up and start working early from home. The problem at this time of my life wasn’t that I would go to sleep at the right time, but I would wake up and not be able to go back to sleep because my mind would start racing and become stressed out. My family thought I was crazy that I would give up trying to sleep to start working in the middle of the night.


My sister suggested that I try using an essential oil called Serenity. She said that it helped her get back to sleep, so I decided to try it.  I started taking the Serenity soft gels when I wasn’t able to get back to sleep and found that I was able to get back to sleep with a half hour. I was ecstatic to be able to sleep more than 5 hours again. 


When my family or I am sick, I use Breathe essential oil in the diffuser and Breathe Rub (it’s like a vapor rub, without toxic chemicals) at night especially, everyone’s sickness seems to be worse at night to somehow deprive us all of the sleep our body needs. No one can sleep when they can’t breathe and sound like Darth Vador! Honestly! 


I hope my story gives you some hope that a restful night is not impossible and is achievable without sleeping pills that have ridiculous side effects.

I love Serenity, a few drops in my bath. Diffuse. Best, I like to dab on my wrists as I snuggle my pillow, I inhale and fall to sleep.
