Our Deep Sleep salve is designed for those who want a good nights rest and want to wake feeling fully refreshed and restored. This best-selling salve contains Valerian Root, a strong-smelling essential oil that is praised as one of the best natural sedatives on Earth!. We've paired it with a proprietary blend of Essential Oils to help even the most serious insomniac slip off to dream land.
Valerian Root for Sleep:
Researchers have shown that low GABA levels related to acute and chronic stress are linked to anxiety and low-quality sleep. Valerian root contains a number of compounds that can help promote sleep and reduce anxiety such as valerenic acid, isovaleric acid and a variety of antioxidants. Valerenic acid has been found to inhibit the breakdown of GABA in the brain, resulting in feelings of calmness and tranquility. This is the same way anti-anxiety medications like Valium and Xanax work.
Valerian root also contains the antioxidants hesperidin and linarin, which can also have sedative and sleep-enhancing properties.
The Benefits of Lavender:
Lavender has been shown in multiple studies to decrease heart rate and blood pressure, which in turn puts you in a more relaxed state. In one study, researchers monitored the brain waves of subjects at night and found that those who were ingesting lavender before bed had a deeper sleep and felt more vigorous in the morning. Another study of infants found that they cried less and slept more deeply after a bath with lavender scented oils.
Our deep sleep salve will help you get the rest you need and wake up feeling ready to tackle the day!
How to use:
Simply rub the salve onto your chest, wrists, temples and/or the soles of the feet before going to bed.
