If you have trouble falling asleep at night, a natural remedy like a sleep balm could be your snooze-inducing answer. From the Free People blog, this DIY lavender sleep balm is quick and easy to make. To use, you simply dab on pulse points like wrists and temples. Ideal as part of a pre-bedtime routine, the natural sleep aid will prevent inconvenient 3am wakeups and provide a general sense of calm.
Leveraging the aromatherapy powers of soothing lavender, the homemade balm is made out of other essential oils including calming chamomile and bergamot. You also incorporate beeswax, jojoba oil and even extra virgin olive oil. This oil blend is best used in combination with deep breathing. The potency will also ebb in time.
