Quality sleep is essential. If you’re not sleep well or sleeping enough, you simply can’t be your best self. Your energy tanks, your mood is off, you get sick easier, you crave unhealthy food, and you just don’t feel well.
Sleep is one of the most important things you can do for overall health and wellness, and too many people suffer from insomnia and poor sleep.
Experts recommend that adults get at least 7–8 hours of sleep every night. Unfortunately, about 33 percent of Americans are not getting the recommended amount of sleep per night, and approximately 1 in every 5 adults in the United States experiences occasional sleeplessness or difficulty sleeping.
Depriving your body of sleep has been linked to many health risks and places a tremendous burden on virtually every organ system in your body. Lack of adequate sleep affects our ability to lose weight or to maintain a healthy weight; influences how we feel, learn, and behave; negatively impacts our cardiovascular health and overall wellbeing; and can reduce reaction time and interfere with our ability to drive.
Getting adequate sleep is essential to recover physically and mentally from the demands of daily life. Quality sleep is vital to how you feel each and every day because it is essential to support your body’s natural recuperative and restorative processes.
While improving your sleep requires making many lifestyle changes, essential oils are a powerful way to support the body’s ability to wind down and sleep peacefully.
Many oils have calming properties such as lavender, vetiver, roman chamomile, and cedarwood. All of these oils can be diffused in the bedroom to support restful sleep but one of my favorite solutions is an special essential oils blend called Serenity.
dōTERRA Serenity combines essential oils renowned for their ability to lessen feelings of tension and calm emotions, and support a restful sleep when used aromatically. The blend creates a relaxing environment with its grounding aroma that calms the mind and soothes the senses. Did I mention it smells amazing?!?
You can also add this oil to your epsom salt bath before bed to help relax and calm your mind and body.
While the Serenity oil blend is incredible by itself, it’s even better when used with the Serenity Restful Complex. This is a specially formulated softgel to promote restful sleep.
Let’s dive deeper into each product and how it works.

Pure essential oils are effective; that is why it is crucial to make sure that the oils you purchase are pure and therapeutic-grade. Too often, essential oils sold on the market contain impurities that weaken an essential oil’s power and ability to assist with personal needs.
However, when you ensure that the essential oils you purchase are pure, you will be amazed at their power in promoting vitality and their efficacy in helping fulfill individual needs.
