I Need Sleep Now Essential Oil Recipe

by Andrea Butje on July 10, 2013

We all love to sleep well. This bath salts recipe can really help! It's one of my favorite essential oil recipes for sleep.

I have a lot of essential oil recipes for sleep, and I especially love this one in pink bath salts. But you can use any natural salt you like.

  • 1 drop Neroli essential oil (Citrus aurantium var. amara)
  • 3 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • 1 drop Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
  • 2 oz (56 gm) pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 tablespoon Castile soap

This recipe is just the right amount for one bath, but you can easily make a larger amount and store it in a glass jar for future baths.

If you don't like to take baths or don't have a bath tub, this same blend can be used in 1 oz (28 gm) of unscented lotion and applied to your back and shoulders right before bed. Another idea is to use the same recipe (minus the salt and Castile soap) in a spray bottle of water for your linens.

I recommend making a fresh batch of bath salt or linen spray every few weeks.
