In order to take care of your physical and mental health, you have to make sure you’re getting a decent amount of sleep. If you’re like millions of other people, sleep might not be something that’s easily attainable for you.
Fortunately, there are numerous products that can help you get the sleep that you need. Not all of these products are natural, though, so you do have to be careful that you don’t choose something to help you that ends up having a negative side effect.

One of the best all-natural ways to get to sleep is to use an essential oil diffuser and a sound machine. It used to be that you would have to use these products separately if you wanted to also add a soft light.
Now, you can get all that with the ArtNaturals Sound Machine and Essential Oil Diffuser.
The machine uses aromatherapy in combination with soothing white noise to help you fall asleep quickly.
You’ll be amazed at how much better you feel after sleeping without tossing and turning or waking up repeatedly. With the sound part of the machine, you get a choice of six sounds.
These sounds are proven to help relax the mind by blocking all those irritating noises that have prevented you from being able to get to sleep in the past. It can filter out noises like the eternally barking dog in your neighborhood, your partner’s snoring or the sounds of traffic and loud neighbors.
Because it can cancel all of that out, your brain will focus only on the soothing sounds coming from the machine. The loop and frequency that the sounds are on will lull you to sleep, and the machine can be used by new parents to help get their baby to sleep, for toddlers or older users.
In combination with the soothing sounds, the machine uses scents from whatever essential oil you put in. After you add the oil, the machine will gently release the scent in the air much like a humidifier would work.
The machine doesn’t rely on a flame to warm the oil; it uses vibrations instead so that you can use it without worry. It has an automatic shut off and an LED light that uses only dim pastel colors that are also known to help usher in relaxation. You’ll have a selection of seven colors to pick from.
It’s designed in a sphere shape which allows it to work effectively in both small or big rooms. The machine itself isn’t loud once you turn it on and it works quietly in the background so you’ll be able to tune in to the sounds and drift off to sleep.

This set has a few of the sleep essential oil, but also many others that help with other things. If you are new to essential oils, this is a great set to start with.
