Lavender for Insomnia

I often incorporate aromatherapy into my acupuncture treatments. By placing an essential oil or a blend onto specific acu points on the body, it can enhance their action. I often recommend that patients use certain oils at home to aid them with once they leave the office.

Lavender is one that I speak of often and is extremely powerful. It can be used for digestive upset, pain relief, insomnia, restlessness, and even as a topical aid for wounds. I have found it to be extremely helpful with patients experiencing depression, anxiety, and sleep difficulty. By placing a few drops of Lavandula angustifolia on a pillow or sheets, it can help the body relax for sound asleep. A study in England showed that lavender is just as effective for promoting sleep as traditional medications.

You can also try brewing a lavender tea!

  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lavender flowers
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • Honey and lemon if desired
