There are many causes of insomnia; the most common are worry, tension and anxiety. It is estimated that one in three adults will suffer from insomnia in their lives, due to one of these factors. The body needs to sleep in order to concentrate on repair and healing itself. A lack of sleep can have long-term negative effects on health and well-being.

Aromatherapy oils help relaxation, allowing the body to wind down naturally leading to a restful and peaceful night sleep. Essential oils such as chamomile and lavender are calming and soothing to the nervous system. They relax the mind and relieve the body of tension and anxiety. The quality of sleep that follows is very beneficial to restore and replenish the cells and tissues, even the state of mind.
