What is a synergy blend?
Essential oils extracted or distilled from plants, flowers, tree bark and roots are very powerful on their own, but when carefully blended, their individual properties are greatly enhanced. Mixing essential oils together in exact proportions to achieve a particular result creates a synergistic effect whereby the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. The act of combining neat / undiluted essential oils into what aromatherapists have termed a "synergy blend" makes the application process far more efficient and less costly, since you won't need to buy as many bottles or spend as much money to obtain the results you desire. The art / science of combining essential oils so that they work is like making fine wine and real perfume. It takes education, experimentation, time (10 years in the case of Sleep Naturally ®), talent, and a commitment to quality and excellence.

What is bergaptene?
Many plants contain furocoumarins such as bergaptene, which are known photo-sensitizers. Bergaptene is a naturally occurring component of bergamot essential oil. When bergamot oil is applied to the skin, it can become very sensitive to ultravoilet light, causing dermatitis. In mild cases it can be seen as a reddening of the skin. The reddening will resolve in a few weeks, although the accompanying high hyper-pigmentation (brown spots) can take months or sometimes years to fully disappear. That's why we always use bergaptene-free bergamot in our Sleep Naturally ® formula.

COA: Certificate of Authenticity
A COA is a document that is sometimes requested by wholesalers, distributors, drop shippers and online retailers, stating that what we say is inside the bottle is in there. In the case of aromatherapy, the document would be from an outside lab, that would test every batch and generate a report. Each test or report would cost us $325. Since we are blending our Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy formula by hand in small batches at this time, batch testing is not an affordable option. Therefore, you have our word that you will get the same reliable product -- or better, since we are constantly striving to improve upon our products -- each and every time you order Sleep Naturally ® from us, or your money back.

How fast will it work?
Because essential oils are applied directly to the skin, the largest organ of the body, bypassing the digestive system, they're faster acting than pills, which need to be digested, and, like food, generally take an hour to digest. With Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy formula, you will start to feel relaxed in about ten minutes, and you'll begin to feel sleepy in twenty. You should be asleep in a half hour. If not, reapply sparingly. If it still doesn't work, contact us for a refund.

How long will it last?
Aromatherapy neat / undiluted can be stored for up to two years. Most carrier oils, which are food grade oils, can be stored for up to six months. Adding a carrier oil to an essential oil extends the shelf life considerably. FYI, we are still using an aromatherapy formula that we ordered ten years ago for PMS, that inadvertently promotes sleep, which has many of the same ingredients that Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy has. It is in a carrier oil / sweet almond oil, that stabilized and preserved it, and it is as good as the day we ordered it. We are also using a bottle of Sleep Naturally ® that we blended over five years ago, and it works just fine. Therefore, based on our experience with both formulas, the shelf life of Sleep Naturally ® cannot be accurately determined, but it is considerably more than two years.

How much will I need?
The amount of Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy that you will need will depend on your weight, age, sex, health: your frequency of insomnia, and your sensitivity to aromatherapy. After trying Sleep Naturally ® once or twice, you will have a better idea of exactly how much is right for you. One of our customers, an African American male in his mid thirties, orders a 5 ml (1/6 oz) bottle of Sleep Naturally ® once every three months. He uses Sleep Naturally ® about twice a week, applying six drops to the sole of each foot. Another male customer, a 35 year old Caucasian, who uses our sleep formula nightly instead of Ambien, reported that the 1.85 ml (1/16 oz) trial size vial of Sleep Naturally ® lasted a week.

Who makes it? / Licensing
Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy is blended by hand, in small batches for freshness, by Gail Seymour, President, GSPI dba Just Relax... ® / past Communications Vice-President, Association for Holistic Health. She is interested in licensing (and potentially selling) her formula to a major international company.

Why is neroli oil / Sleep Naturally ® so expensive?

The color may vary
Grapeseed oil, an ultra light carrier oil made from grapeseeds, is used to dilute essential oils. Depending upon the variety of grapes, grapeseed oil will vary in color from light yellow to light green. If the grapeseed oil we use is greenish, Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy will have a greenish tint. If the grapeseed oil is more yellow, Sleep Naturally ® will be yellow. Since our bottles are tinted, this will not be an issue for our wholesale customers.

Application from bottle / Convenient roll-on
Store Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy in your bedroom closet, inside your night stand, in your medicine cabinet, or wherever it's readily available, as long as it's in a cool, dark place. With the plastic applicator touching the skin, use the bottle as you would a roll-on. Don't touch the oil. If you apply it properly, it won't run and you won't have to get up afterward to wash your hands. Apply Sleep Naturally ® to one side of your body in a circular motion, forming a 2" wide strip. Starting at the hip, continue down the thigh and calf, stopping at just above the ankle. Wait 20 minutes. If you don't feel drowsy, repeat the process on the other side of the body. We also have a roll-on bottle for your convenience; see option 3 below.

Option #1
Place a washcloth, a clean old hand towel, and a small bowl, half filled with water, on your nightstand, to wash your hands. Sitting on the edge of the bed, crossing one leg over the other, with your ankle resting on your thigh, so that the sole of the foot is facing upward, sprinkle 5 drops of Sleep Naturally ® onto the sole. Drop the oil on gently; don't shake the bottle too hard, or you won't be able to count the drops. Using just the tips of your index and middle fingers, cover your sole and toes with oil. Apply to the other foot. Let the oil to absorb into the skin for 15 to 20 minutes. Do not touch the floor. Rinse and wipe your fingers well. Wait for 10 to 20 minutes, or until you feel drowsy enough to lie down. Place the towel onto the bed to protect the sheets. Although it's always best to wash your hands with soap and water after each application, rinsing should suffice, as long as you don't touch your eyes or genitals before morning, or whenever you usually wash, since the oils may cause the delicate tissues to have a burning sensation. Refer the first aid / preventive measures below.

Option #2
If you have knee problems, or if you can't sit up in bed comfortably without support, use a basin (metal is preferable) that's large enough to put both feet into. Fill the basin with just enough warm water to cover the soles soles of both feet. Drop in the oil. Start with 10 drops (minimum) and increase to 20 drops (maximum). It's better to use too little than too much the first time. Soak the feet for 10 to 15 minutes; pat dry. We've been using this and the methods above to apply Sleep Naturally ® for 15 years. If you are our customer, and you have an easier or better way of applying it, please let us hear from you.

Option #3
Order the roll-on bottle of Sleep Naturally ® instead of the dropper bottle. The benefit of using a roll-on is that you won't have to touch the oil with your fingers, so you won't have to wash your hands afterward. The downside is that you will have to devise a system for yourself, based on trial and error, to determine exactly how much to use. Unlike the dropper bottle, you won't be counting out the same number of drops each time. We added the roll-on bottle because our customers asked for it.

For bathing / Sleep Naturally ®
Although our formula was designed for application to the skin, directly from the bottle, to make it more cost effective, you may want to add 10 to 20 drops to your bath water. Bathing does two things: (a) it dilutes the formula while reducing the effectiveness; (b) since soaking covers more area of your skin, it will work faster than necessary. In our opinion, bathing in Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy is not advisable, but if you decide to do it anyway, use extreme caution when getting out of the tub as you will probably be groggy.

First Aid / Preventive Measures
For eye contact, flush with copious amounts of water for 15 min. For skin contact, remove contaminated clothing, wash affected areas. For swallowing, drink lots of water or milk to dilute. For inhalation, seek fresh air for excess inhalation. Do not induce vomiting; seek medical attention. Use sunscreen after use or when you are in the sun.

Warning: Never apply neat / undiluted essential oils directly to the skin. Never ingest (drink) them. Do not use Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy in combination with prescription or OTC (over the counter) medications or herbal formulas taken by mouth. Not for use by children under the age of three or pets. If you are pregnant, do not use Sleep Naturally ®. It contains sweet marjoram, which has been shown to induce or hasten menstrual flow. If you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant, or if you are nursing (breast feeding), do not use this product. Caution: If you are taking prescription medications, consult your pharmacist (they have some training) or physician (they probably won't know) before using any essential oils. Aromatherapy, derived from plants and fruits, and drugs (synthetic / chemicals) don't mix. Take great care when using Sleep Naturally ® for bathing. We don't want you to fall asleep in the tub or slip getting out. Disclaimer (aromatherapy): See link below.
