As part of Aromacare’s Top 10 practices for Aromatherapy in Aged Care we would like to introduce you to improving sleep quality with Aromatherapy
There are several research studies that illustrate the benefits of using aromatherapy as part of a sleep improvement plan for people who have insomnia or difficulty sleeping. This is why it made sense to include it in our Top 10 practices for Aromatherapy in Aged Care. Some of the improvements demonstrated in these studies include;
- Less wakeful episodes
- Increase in total sleep time
- Reduced settling time to sleep
- Improved sleep patterns for residents experiencing mental stress
In 15 years working in the Aged Care Sector has shown us that the best sleep programs include:
An evening massage to the muscles and joints
Massaging oil to the muscles and joints in a circular motion for 10 minutes prior to bed time either using the Night time or Relaxation Massage and Body oil. This physical contact generates emotional comfort and strengthens human connection. The essential oils chosen in these blends hold therapuetic actions that are sedative, warming and soothing, all of which are valuable in settling for sleep.
Using the diffuser in the evening
Apply 6 drops of Sleep Well or Night time Essential Oil Blend in an Aromatherapy Diffuser .
The essential oils chosen in these blends are all known to improve sleep quality and relaxation.
The beauty of our diffuser range is that the essential oils are not heated so you get the full aromatic intensity from every drop. The diffuser may be turned off in a couple of hours or it turns off automatically once the blend has exhausted.
