Magnesium oil sleep spray
Magnesium oil is often very helpful for promoting sleep but can cause tingling on the skin, especially if a person is deficient, so it isn’t the best all-over remedy for children but the solution is to apply a small amount to the feet only before bed and put socks on the kids. The feet are tougher and don’t seem to tingle like the rest of the body does, and this helps improve sleep
Roman chamomile essential oil is the most effective one to use for insomnia. It’s has both sedative and relaxing properties. It is often used to deal with nervous tension, which makes this an obvious choice to help you prepare for sleep.
Simply smelling the plant is enough to help you relax. So imagine how powerful a concentration of lavender essential oil can be. It’s so effective that just putting a few drops on your pillowcase might be enough to help you sleep better at night.
The 4th most abundant mineral in your body is also the hardest to get enough of. Less than 30% of U.S. adults consume the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of magnesium. Not only is it responsible for over 300 chemical reactions within your body, it also doubles as an amazing antidote to stress. It’s been dubbed “the most relaxing mineral in the body” by various health experts. Basically, the more of it you have, the more relaxed you will be and the better your chances of getting a good night’s sleep.
