Sleep / Insomnia
If you have trouble falling asleep every night, you’re not alone. According to the American Sleep Association, approximately 100 million Americans suffer from one of many types of sleep disorders ranging from excessive snoring and obstructive sleep apnea to narcolepsy and insomnia. According to recent studies, sleep disorders account for $411 billion of lost work production hours. So losing valuable hours of sleep is costing us in more ways than we realize but nobody suffers more than those that aren’t getting the sleep our bodies need…although, it isn’t for lack of trying! With a reported figure of $41 billion dollars spent on sleep aids including new mattresses, prescription pills, sleep studies and prescribed sleep devices, it’s fair to say sleep is much desired. Instead of reaching into your wallets though, why not reach for something natural and much less expensive. Essential oils such as Bergamot, Lavender, and Chamomile, have been used for centuries to aid sleep by working with your body in a pure, nontoxic way to promote our natural transition to sleep.
