Where to Apply Essential Oils for Sleeping
If you’re having trouble getting a good night’s sleep, apply diluted essential oils to your chest, neck, big toe, and inner wrists.
The essential oils will not only help you fall asleep faster, but they’ll also help you stay asleep so that you wake up in the morning fully rested and ready to take on the day.
A few essential oils that help with sleep: lavender, cedarwood, vetiver, ylang ylang, Roman chamomile
Where Is the Best Place on the Body to Apply Essential Oils?
There is no single perfect place on the body to apply essential oils.
- If it’s a localized issue like stomachache or sore muscles, then apply the essential oils directly to the part of the body where the issue is occurring.
- However, if it’s a more generalized issue like lack of focus, trouble sleeping, or anxiety, then apply essential oils at your pulse points: wrists, temples, behind the ears, neck, chest, or inner elbow.
- Pulse points are the parts of the body where major arteries run closest to the skin.
- Applying essential oils at pulse points gets the essential oils into the bloodstream the fastest, and you start feeling the benefits of the essential oils sooner.
Where to Apply Essential Oils for Seasonal Allergies
When seasonal allergies flare up, apply essential oils to the pulse points behind your ears as well as your inner wrists.
Then rub wrists together, raise wrists to just below your nose, and inhale deeply.
By using both topical application and aromatherapy (breathing oils in), the essential oils will enter your bloodstream more quickly and your seasonal sneezing and itchy, watery eyes should lessen.

CEDARWOOD ESSENTIAL OIL
Cedarwood oil can be used as a general health tonic since it tones the organ systems and stimulates metabolism. It tightens and tones muscles in the skin, stomach, digestive system, and regulates brain functions. It boosts the functionality of the kidney and liver, which further improves overall health and wellness.
Acts as an Astringent
As an astringent, cedarwood oil helps cure toothaches, strengthens the grip of gums on teeth and protects them from falling out. It also tightens loose muscles and gives a feeling of firmness, fitness, and youth. This property can also be used to cure diarrhea, by tightening the muscles of the digestive system and contracting those spasm-prone muscles. As an astringent, cedarwood oil is also a useful tool for protecting the skin from toxins and bacteria. Astringent substances also cause skin proteins to coagulate, where they dry and harden, forming a protective shield on the applied area.
If you are suffering from a cough, cold, and related congestion, you should try cedarwood oil to alleviate the irritation. It is an  expectorant and efficiently eliminates a cough and removes phlegm from the respiratory tracts and lungs, thereby relieving congestion. It also provides relief from headaches, red and watery eyes, and other symptoms of cold and cough. A small amount of this oil can also help you get a good night’s sleep when suffering from a cough and cold. By stimulating the loosening of phlegm and the coughing which will remove it, you also protect your respiratory tract and overall health from toxins and conditions that excess phlegm can cause.
Cedarwood essential oil drives away mosquitoes, flies and other insects. You can put a few drops of oil on your skin to keep them away outdoors, or use a vaporizer to keep them out of the house or apartment. You can also spray diluted cedarwood essential oil on your bed and coaches to keep the pests away.
Because cedarwood essential oil is a sedative, it has the power to relieve tension and stress that affects your health. It has a soothing and calming effect on the mind, reduces inflammation and muscle pain, and minimizes skin irritation or itchiness. The scent of cedarwood essential oil encourages the release of serotonin, which is converted into melatonin in the brain. Melatonin induces restorative sleep and leaves you feeling calm.
