Lavender tea made from lavender buds may help ease insomnia and calm nervousness. It may also help treat an upset stomach and flatulence.
Chamomile oil: It has been widely used to treat sleep problems like insomnia and nightmares. It is also known to be a mild sedative and calms nerves and reduces anxiety.
Chamomile tea made from the flowers has been said to help relieve stomach cramps, headaches and insomnia.
How to use essential oils:
- You can add a few drops of either of these oils to your bath water and take a warm, relaxing bath before going to bed.
- You can also burn some oil in a diffuser by your bedside. Diffusers spread the aroma in your bedroom slowly and the smell isn’t overpowering.
