Serenity takes me away…….

When I was a little girl and couldn’t sleep my mother would tell me to count sheep.  Even then it seemed like an old wives’ tale but actually there is some truth behind the story. Many years ago, sheepherders worried their sheep would run off would find relaxation by literally counting their sheep before they went to sleep.  What a great way to fall asleep naturally!

Sleep! It’s the key to optimal health and equally important as eating healthy and exercising. Most people do not get enough sleep (1 in 3 Americans are not getting enough) or do not get enough restful sleep causing sleep deprivation and it affects everything we do!

Sleep is essential for our bodies to recover after long hours of hard work and to function properly.  When we are asleep our cells regenerate and repair themselves and allow time for our bodily systems to replenish and take a break.

Sleep deprivation has many negative side effects and not one good attribute!  It is associated with abnormal eating patterns, hormonal imbalance, cravings, decreased physical activity, brain fog, difficulty managing weight and overall lack of energy.

Serenity Restful Blend


Many people who struggle with sleep turn to sleeping pills that have negative and harmful side effects but there is a better more natural way!

I  never really had a problem falling asleep or staying asleep, until recently. Even though I was able to fall asleep easily I would wake up periodically so I was lacking true quality sleep.   I would have a hard time waking up in the morning.  When I did finally wake up I felt tired and incapable of starting my day with energy and oomph!

I’d wake with negative feelings about going to work which lead to bad moods and emotions that I didn’t like.  I knew it was time to try  Do TERRA’s Serenity Restful blend.   Until this point, I promoted the success others had with Serenity, but it was time for my own experience.

” I ‘ve suffered from insomnia off and on since my children were born and I have tried every over the counter drug and prescription medication you can think of and they all worked…until they didn’t! I have been taking Serenity for over a year now and I sleep like a baby. I only take them as needed and they always work. I wake up feeling refreshed. They have been a God Send, really!” – Rachael U.

Now, I can honestly say I am a true testament to how powerful this combination of essential oils truly is. The best part is that these are not sleeping pills that force you to go to sleep. They are natural solutions that help with more relaxed and restful sleep.

Studies show that visualizing peaceful images such as a beach or a babbling brook, listen to soft sounds and music calms our minds and promotes a more restful environment for sleep.

It is so much easier getting out of bed in the morning. As a wellness advocate for DoTERRA, I wanted to see if my outcome was similar to my customers who use Serenity Restful blend or Serenity gel-caps. Sure, enough it was.

Serenity is a divine blend of essential oils which include lavender, Cedarwood, Ho Wood Leaf, Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Vetiver, Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Vanilla Bean extract. Many of these oils have calming chemical properties.

To use, simply diffuse at night bedside and roll on the bottoms of your feet. For sensitive skin dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. This regimen will help create a tranquil atmosphere as well as a restful environment at bedtime.

The Serenity Restful Complex Soft gels which I use have a slightly different combination which is well-researched and safe for internal use. These ingredients include lavender, L-Theanine, Lemon balm, passionflower, and Chamomile to gently promote relaxation and sleep.

So, there you have it. Two testimonials on the positive effects of essential oils for sleep. If you would like to be part of my upcoming  Serenity sleep study please reach out to me by contacting me here or visit my website.
