The advice of the physiotherapist
For the adult, a massage of the temples and neck with soothing essential oils provides you an irresistible desire to sleep. The gentle gesture, closer to a caress than a massage (don't knead the muscles) is as soothing as the scent of essential oils, which also play a major role through the nose. It has long been proven that lavender, orange tree, or marjoram are conducive to relaxation, and to sleep.
Besides, to complete the treatment, remember to stimulate the "sleep" points spread all over the body. There's even an "anti-nightmare," useful for children with confusing dreams. Adults too, by the way, can be harassed by "bad" images!
Recommended Essential Oils for adult: lavender, chamomile.
