How it works
Roman chamomile has a deep soothing effect on the nervous system. It is excellent for soothing stress and inflammation, skin irritation, sore muscles and joints, and especially abdominal pain.
Ylang ylang is known for creating harmony in mind, heart, and body. It helps the nervous system relax. It can calm a rapid heart beat. Ylang ylang works relaxing in blend with patchouli to help you unwind when it is time for bed.
Patchouli is known to deeply relax the nervous system. It is the right oil to use when it’s time to lie down and fall asleep. It is very restorative for the skin.
Sweet orange is powerful but gentle so that it is perfect in blends for children. It can help support clear breathing as it helps calm inflammation and tension. It creates comfort and health.
Roman chamomile is safe.
Ylang ylang can be skin sensitising. Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young (Essential oil safety) caution against using it on hypersensitive, diseased, or damaged skin other than at a less than 1% dilution.
Patchouli is generally very safe oil. However, it is cautioned against using while breast feeding as it could pass into breast milk.
Sweet orange is not phototoxic, but it can be sensitising to skin if it is oxidised.
How to use the sweet dreams essential oil blend
It is designed for using in diffusers. You may add 5-6 drops to the water. But we leave it for you to find out how you like it better. You may start from 3 drops and go up to 10-15 drops. It depends on the space and aroma intensity preference.
It might be added to a warm bath and for this we recommend to blend the synergy with a carrier oil first. In a tea spoon of a chosen carrier add 3-5 drops of the blend.
