The world has become more fast-paced than ever thanks to the development of technology and social media, meaning it has become increasingly difficult to shut out the overwhelming amount of information brought to us 24/7. Dealing with mental health, insomnia and stress is certainly an issue that troubles many today. For those struggling to relax or to fall asleep every night, here’s a list of essential oils that could help.

When it comes to relaxation and revitalization, some scents to reach for include lavender, clary sage and frankincense. With its soothing aroma, lavender is a natural remedy for anxiety and depression, as well as pain relief. Clary sage contains sleep-inducing antioxidants that are especially known to have positive effects for women going through menopause. As for frankincense, not only does it help reduce fine lines and wrinkles when applied to the skin, but its woody and earthy scent also helps reduce feelings of anxiety and stimulates the immune system.

If you’re a beginner to using essential oils, take note that some products are not meant to be applied directly onto the skin, and should be used with a diffuser or by adding a few drops on a handkerchief, bedsheets or pillow. Some oils are designed to be used with other moisturizers and creams depending on the brand and product type, so make sure to read the instructions before use.

Scroll down for a look at some of the best essential oils that can help with relaxation, revitalization and sleep. For more on mental health and stress, read about how our editors like to relax after a long day.
