Looking for natural sleep remedies to help sleeping problems? Anyone who has ever had trouble sleeping knows that these problems can absolutely ruin the days that follow bad nights of sleep.

While there are many sleep aids available to help you fall asleep, lots of people find that these sleep aids make them drowsy the next day, have unwanted side effects, or can interact with other medications they take.

If you have tried measures ranging from sleeping pills to melatonin to valerian root and have still had problems sleeping or have been groggy the next day, pay attention!

Insomnia and Sleep Health

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder and the leading cause of daytime fatigue. The difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep can have damaging effects on your mood, energy levels and quality of life.

Insomnia has many causes which include stress, anxiety, depression, an overactive mind and improper sleep habits.

A relaxed mind and body is a must if you have been experiencing problems with sleeping.

Conversely, when it comes to getting poor sleep, one of the biggest things that will contribute is stress and tension in your body and mind.

This means that if you have been experiencing problems sleeping, the best way to fall asleep is to find the way to relax your mind and body. Read on to find out natural ways to help you get a better night sleep.

All Natural Sleep Remedies for Insomnia

Insomnia can be a vicious cycle of sleeplessness, causing irritability and exhaustion. Luckily there are many natural remedies that may help you get better sleep!

Find what time works best for you by setting a consistent routine such as getting up at the same time every day even

    1. Take a Shower

    A shower is a great way to relax your body, as heat is so relaxing to your body, and a shower is the best way to get heat on your whole body.

    If you usually take a shower in the morning, consider taking one at night instead, as this will relax your body.

    2. Drink Lavender Tea

    Lavender Tea is another way to relax your body using heat – but make sure you drink tea that is caffeine free, otherwise you may worsen the problem. Drink about 45 minutes before going to bed for best results.

    You could try Chamomile tea as an alternative as well. Some tea companies also have "Sleepytime Tea" blends.

    3. Stretch Before Bed

    Stretching before you go to bed is another method many people have found helps them unwind in their body and sleep better.

    This stretching can take the form of the regular sorts of stretches you typically do before a workout, or it can take the form of yoga – which helps a lot of people relax.

    4. Meditation & Breathing

    Meditation is another approach that is similar to yoga because it helps you regulate your breathing while also calming your body.

    Frankincense essential oil is a great oil to add for meditation. Diffuse or apply frankincense to head and heart for a peaceful feeling.

    If you decide that meditation is not for you, try to find some breathing exercises that will enable you to breathe regularly and deeply, as these will help your body unravel just a bit.

      5. Sleeping Mask

      Sleeping masks can help block out lights so your mind can relax.  Blue lights that most electronics emit can really brighten up a room, even with eyes closed these types of lights can be stimulating to the mind.

      6. Use Essential Oils

      Essential oil have amazing powers to calm and destress you mind and body, allowing your to achieve well needed rest.

      The best essential oils for sleep are lavender, roman chamomile and geranium.  Roman Chamomile offers calming effect on the skin, mind, and body. 

      Create a blend of these three oils in a roll on bottle and roll on to chest and feet. Simply add 4 drops of lavender, 3 drops of roman chamomile and 3 drops of geranium to a 10 ml roller bottle. Fill rest of bottle with fractionated coconut oil. Shake to mix. Roll on feet, wrists and chest before bedtime.

      Basil essential oil is also a preferred oil for renewing your mind and spirit, which can help you get better quality sleep once you fall asleep.
