After a long day, I'm all about utilizing routines to unwind. One of my pre-bedtime rituals is diffusing essential oils!
Essential oils have some pretty phenomenal properties that can affect us physically and emotionally, so I like to choose oils that support me and what my body and mind needs.
The following is one of my favorite essential oil diffuser blends to diffuse at night. I find that breathing in and smelling this combination of essential oils helps me slow down, let go of the day, and take time to clear my mind as I get ready for bed.
To an atomizing diffuser (this one's my favorite!), add:
- 2 drops Lavender essential oil
- 2 drops Bergamot essential oil
- 2 drops Vetiver essential oil

Lavender is one of the most commonly used essential oils, and there are definitely reasons why! It is widely used for its calming and relaxing properties and helps ease feeling of tension. Lavender is a floral oil, which is comforting and consoling.
Bergamot is a spicy citrus with a bittersweet scent. It is calming, soothing, and powerfully uplifting. It welcomes calm and harmony and, when diffused, fosters a sense of self-confidence.
Vetiver is rich in sesquiterpenes, which gives it a strong grounding effect. Often used in colognes and perfumes, vetiver has rich, earthy tones - for me, the scent is incredibly calming. It promotes centering and balance.
As you can tell, there are some recurring themes with these three oils. The best thing is that not only are these oil synergetic with the effects they have, but the scents blend amazingly well.
WHY DŌTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS?
There's something I like to call the dōTERRA difference.
More than any other essential oil company I've come across, dōTERRA goes out of their way to provide the most pure, potent, and therapeutically beneficial essential oils.
dōTERRA employs a self-imposed standard for purity called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade - all of dōTERRA's essential oils must meet this standard to be sold and used. In order to be labeled Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (or CPTG for short), a batch of essential oil must pass eight different tests - read up more on the process here!
Because of this testing process, you can be confident that dōTERRA essential oils are safe, pure, and effective to use in the ways described above and why I choose to use them in my integrative health coaching practice.
Each essential bottle also includes a Quality ID # that you can use to track where your oil was sourced and view the GC/MS test results for the batch. How cool is that?!
From my experience, dōTERRA essential oils are the best out there.
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.
