5 Essential Oils To Use as Sleep Aids

Sleep is paramount to our health. During the recommended eight hours of sleep per day, the body repairs itself. Remember, sleep should not be considered a luxury, but an important component of a healthful lifestyle. In fact, research on the effects of sleep deprivation or insomnia shows that short-term restriction of sleep results in a variety of adverse physiologic effects —including hypertension, activation of the sympathetic nervous system, impairment of glucose control and increased inflammation. The lack of sleep increases the risk of mortality and cardiovascular disease

 

Now that you’re familiar with the devastating effects of lack of sleep, we’re sure you’re wondering what your options are if you suffer from sleep disorders like insomnia or sleep apnea—especially if you’d prefer not to take harsh, side-effect-riddled medication.
