Aromatherapy and Dreams

Guest Author - Parthena Black

Aromatherapy is an ancient healing art that has made a comeback in recent decades. Essential oils are used to stimulate healing through the senses. They are highly concentrated and some can be dangerous if overused or if placed directly on the skin.

Lavender is one of the few essential oils that can be applied directly to the skin. It is frequently used in lotions and face creams since it is said to diminish wrinkles and bring a healthy glow to the skin over time. The effects of essential oils appear to be cumulative.

Lavender is known as a comforting, relaxing scent and is frequently recommmended by aromatherapists and other holistic practitioners due to its calming influence. The scent of lavender can balance body and mind and help induce sleep. When you are getting enough rest, you're more likely to get more out of your dreams because you're in good health.

There are several ways you can use lavender to help you achieve restful sleep and dreaming. It can be placed in a diffuser or on a cotton ball or piece of fabric tucked inside your pillowcase. You can make a room and pillow spray from water, witch hazel and lavender essential oil. The mixture should be kept in a dark glass bottle since sunlight can diminish the effects of essential oil. Simply spray a mist in the air around the bed or spray directly on pillows and sheets. You may want to test the fabric first to ensure that it doesn't stain.

There are many different brands of essential oils out there. Experienced aromatherapists have told me that the higher priced oils are higher quality. I've found this to be true for some of the oils. However, I've found NOW Lavender essential oil to have a pleasant, long-lasting fragrance. I've used it in diffusers and as a skin remedy. I'm also a soapmaker and its performance is superb in hot process soap. I recently opened bar that is about six months old and it smells even stronger! NOW also carries a certified organic lavender essential oil for more than twice the price. For my purposes, the "plain" version works just fine.
