Sleep & Aromatherapy Part 3

Dream•Weaver: Sleep Aid

Whether your challenges are falling asleep or staying asleep through the night, DreamWeaver may help. It is a carefully researched & developed blend of seven essential oils known to help with sleep, including Ylang Ylang, Lavender, and Canadian Balsam Fir.

$21 … 6 ml ••• $53 … 18 ml

We offer it as an undiluted blend, which means it is suitable for diffusion.  Try Hubmar’s Classic Ultrasonic Nebulizer  – read the manufacturer’s instructions before diffusing.  And Hubmar’s ScentBall Plug in Aromatherapy Room Diffuser; this one plugs into the wall.

As an undiluted blend, this also means it is at a 100% concentration level and should never be applied undiluted directly to the skin (despite what some Independent Distributors with an MLM recommend).  In order to apply to the skin (or in a bath) you will need to blend DreamWeaver in a base (think carrier oil, distilled water, hydrosol or bath salts).  You may add to an unscented lotion you already have on hand.  Patch-test before use.

My rule-of-thumb in terms of safe use on skin is one drop of DreamWeaver to 5 ml (or 1 tsp) of base .  This is the equivalent of a 1% concentration level.

For children, use 1 drop of DreamWaver to 15 ml of base (or 1 tbsp).

If you are pregnant or suffering from any health condition, please consult your health-care provider before using DreamWeaver or any essential oils.
