You can have someone use one of these oils to massage you.  On top the massage itself which will calm you, the oils will work its way into your system to help you with your stress.  You do need to make sure you have someone who is willing to massage you and is strong enough to do so.


Taking a nice bath can really help release those knots and stress.  You could consider getting bathroom candles to have the aroma reduce your stress as well.  You just put the oils into the water, wait for the water to heat up the perfect temperature, and then step in and relax.  The less you focus on your problems the better you’ll be able to sleep.  Often sleep problems can be mental so if you can fix your stressors you’ll be happier and have higher quality sleep.
