I dunno about you, but I have serious issues falling asleep. It’s been a problem of mine for as long as I can remember. Unless I’m just totally exhausted, I can lie awake in bed for hours trying to fall asleep. My mind races, and I replay scenes of the day in my head. I know that I’m not alone in this. Relaxing is difficult for me, in bed at least. I can snooze on the couch or take a short nap during the day with no trouble, generally. Isn’t that weird? My husband usually has no trouble falling asleep at night. He and Ethan (9) are usually asleep within minutes of their heads hitting the pillow once they’re ready for sleep.
I’ve tried all sorts of things to help relax, and most haven’t been very effective for me. Some nights I can pray myself to sleep, which is a wonderful blessing to me. Even that doesn’t always work, though. I have finally found something that helps me to settle down and relax when I go to bed at night. I love telling my friends about new products that I find that really work, and this works for me and my husband on the rare occasion that he cannot relax well.
Several months ago, I became a Young Living Distributor. Not to make money, honestly, but to buy products at a sweet discount. With their Seed to Seal process, I am very confident in buying and using their products. I tend to buy things that will help with a current need that I have, or that will assist me in meeting a goal that I have. With my having trouble with relaxing and falling asleep at night, I decided to give the RutaVaLa Roll-on a try. I stay in contact with my Young Living sponsor on a regular basis, and go to her with any questions or concerns that I have. She is a wealth of knowledge, and recommended RutaVaLa to me. I chose to go ahead and purchase the roll-on, because of the ease of application, and the fact that it is already diluted with a carrier oil (coconut) and is ready to use.
At first glance, the bottle looks pretty small. It’s a 10ml bottle, which in reality isn’t very much. The beauty of using essential oils is that a little goes a long way. Just one essential oil drop is enough to impact every cell in your body! The RutaVaLa roll-on is ready to use, and comes with an easy-to-use applicator, so you just roll it on wherever you want it on your body. For me, I like to apply it on my neck, especially close to my ears. I admit that when I first used RutaVaLa, the valerian scent was surprising since I’d never smelled it before. However, I’ve really grown to love the soothing scent, and I look forward to applying it before bed every evening. RutaVaLa contains a proprietary blend of Ruta graveolens (or rue), lavender, and valerian essential oils, as well as the carrier oil.
As a relatively new Young Living Distributor, I am still learning lots of great information. Feel free to leave comments and questions, or visit my personal website above and sign up for yourself.
