Using Essential Oils in the Home: Bedroom

posted in: doTerra Blog

Is your bedroom a gathering place for laundry? Your favorite place to unwind and watch a movie? Or just the room where you fall into your bed after a long day? No matter how you use it, your bedroom can quickly be turned into a sanctuary with the use of powerful, pure essential oils.

Whether you want your bedroom to be more peaceful and calm, more organized and uplifting, or just a more pleasant place to spend your time, there are a few essential oils that can help make your bedroom feel like a little piece of heaven.

The Best Essential Oils to Use in the Bedroom 

doTERRA Serenity®: One of the best things you can do for yourself is to make your bedroom more conducive for a good night’s sleep. Because of their calming properties, many people like to use essential oils for sleep. The doTERRA Serenity Restful Blend was specially designed to calm the senses and promote restful sleep, so you’ll want to keep it on-hand in the bedroom. Diffuse doTERRA Serenity before going to bed to lessen feelings of tension and promote a restful, relaxed sleeping environment. Diffusing doTERRA Serenity is also a great way to help your kids get to sleep when they don’t want to calm down.

Tip: Combine a few drops of doTERRA Serenity with water in a spray bottle and spritz over your bedding to help calm the mind and soothe the senses.

Citrus Bliss®: Are you a morning person? Do you pop out of bed, ready and excited for the day? If not, it can be difficult to get moving in the morning, especially if you find yourself in a sour mood. Transform your morning by diffusing an uplifting essential oil like Citrus Bliss in your bedroom while you get ready.

As the sweet, citrus scent of Citrus Bliss fills the room, it will help to reduce stress and positively affect your mood from the moment you start your day.

You can also keep a bottle of Citrus Bliss on your bedside table and place a drop in your palms so that you can take a deep, uplifting breath first thing in the morning. The harmonious aroma will help you to start your day on the right foot.

Tip: If you need some extra motivation to get going in the morning, try using other citrus oils similar to Citrus Bliss like Bergamot, Wild Orange, or Elevation.

doTERRA Balance®: If you like to escape to your bedroom when you have a few minutes to yourself, doTERRA Balance Grounding Blend can help you to calm down without getting too sleepy. When you have a few minutes to read, listen to music, meditate, pay your bills, declutter, or answer emails as you relax in your bedroom, doTERRA Balance is the perfect companion for creating a tranquil environment.

Diffuse doTERRA Balance in your bedroom diffuser to promote a whole-body sense of relaxation or ease anxious feelings. When you have a quiet moment to yourself, turn your bedroom into an oasis with just a few drops of doTERRA Balance.

Tip: Apply doTERRA Balance to the bottom of your feet when you want to promote feelings of calmness and tranquility on a busy day.  

doTERRA Breathe®: While essential oils can be useful for creating a good sleeping environment, another element of restful sleep is proper breathing. If you want to maintain feelings of clear airways and easy breathing throughout the night, keep a bottle of doTERRA Breathe Respiratory Blend in your bedroom. Before you go to bed, rub a few drops of doTERRA Breathe over the chest to promote a restful night of sleep and help minimize the effects of seasonal threats.

Deep Blue® Rub: When you come to the end of a long day, do you start to feel the effects of moving around all day, sitting too much, or standing on your feet for too long? Keep a bottle of Deep Blue Rub in your bedroom for soothing, cooling comfort for your legs, feet, and any other areas you want to target at the end of the day. Instead of rushing around, take a moment to relax and give yourself a simple, soothing massage with the help of Deep Blue Rub.

Tip: Keep a bottle of Deep Blue Touch in the bedroom so that you can sit on the edge of the bed and give yourself a soothing foot massage before going to sleep.
