Vibrant Blue Oils Symptom Support Sleep™ blend contains a proprietary formulation in a base of fractionated coconut oil:

Blue Tansy (Tanacetum anuum): Blue tansy is a flowering plant related to the daisy that hails from Morocco. It derives its vivid shade of blue from its azulene content which is not only responsible for the distinctive color, but the natural calming effect it provides. Blue tansy is known to calm balance physical and emotional issues related to nerves, anxiety, stress and even cases of mild depression.

More specifically, blue tansy helps lift physical and mental stagnation, relieving congestion along with anger, anxiety, depression and nervousness agitation to help open your heart and move out energy that no longer serves you. On a physical level, it helps calm inflammation and neutralize histamine to calm allergic reactions. It helps enhance the properties of the other oils in the blend and will help you relax your mind and body.

Citronella (Cymbopogon winterianus): Citronella can be relaxing and support restful sleep. Research shows that, when inhaled, citronella oil may reduce stress and pain in pregnant women.  A 2014 study published in the Iranian Red Crescent Medical Journal found that common active ingredients of citronella like nerol, geraniol, phenyl ethyl alcohol, and linalool, reduced anxiety up to 71% during pregnancy, labor, and childbirth.

Additional research has found that inhalation of citronella oil, in combination with lavender essential oil, seems to activate the parasympathetic nervous system which supports relaxation and sleep.  Citronella essential oils is also found to relieve pain and increases your pain threshold.

Roman Chamomile (Matricaria recutita): A natural anti-histamine, Roman Chamomile can help promote the health of your physical heart.  Roman chamomile contains high levels of flavonoids, or plant secondary metabolites, that have been shown to significantly reduce mortality from coronary heart disease when taken internally.

The flavonoids present in Roman chamomile essential oil are believed to lower blood pressure and have a relaxing effect on the heart. On an emotional level, Roman chamomile essential oil has been used as a mild sedative to calm nerves and reduce anxiety by promoting relaxation.

2013 study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that an  essential oil blend including lavender, Roman chamomile and neroli reduced anxiety levels and improved the sleep quality of patients in an intensive care unit compared to conventional nursing intervention.  Similarly, a 2006 study found that inhaling Roman Chamomile essential oil promoted sleep with calmness and drowsiness among healthy volunteers. Inhalation of chamomile is believed to offset a stress-induced increase in the levels of adrenocorticotropic (ACTH) hormone, which is released by the pituitary gland to trigger the release of the stress hormone cortisol.

According to a 2005 study published in Biological and Pharmaceutical Bulletin,  chamomile extracts exhibit benzodiazepine-like hypnotic activity. A significant decrease in the time it took to fall asleep was observed in rats who received chamomile extract at a dose of 300 milligrams per kilogram of body weight.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia): Lavender is known for its sedative, anxiety relieving and calming properties that help your body and mind relax.

study published in Sage Journal found that “lavender oil displays similar therapeutic effects as melatonin.” Additional research on The effect of aromatherapy with lavender on serum melatonin levels  found that “blood melatonin levels significantly increased in the total population after the intervention with aromatherapy.”

Additional research suggests that lavender works as well as the anti-anxiety medication Lorazepam for calming anxiety.  Linalool, a key constituent of Lavender, has been shown to help with depression.  Linalool is known to activate your calming neurotransmitter Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), which may slows and can balance brain activity and reduce symptoms of depression.

Research has found that essential oils, like Lavender, can bind to the receptors on your cells that receive your body’s calming neurotransmitter, GABA, and help balance your brain’s level of excitation and inhibition which is vital for normal brain function and a healthy nervous system.

Scientists also concluded that inhaling Lavender essential oil can calm the nervous system and improve brain waves appropriate to a relaxed state. “Lavender oil caused significant decreases of blood pressure, heart rate, and skin temperature, which indicated a decrease of autonomic arousal. In terms of mood responses.”

Lime (Citrus aurantifolia): Lime oil is known to support relaxation and sleep.  In fact, Lime essential oils was found to be “more effective than antidepressants.”  (Study).  It clears trapped emotions and thoughts, helping to overcome stagnant energies – including grief, despair, apathy anxiety, depression, listlessness fatigue, overwhelm, or a heavy heart.

Lime essential oil is also known to alleviate stress, tension and anxiety. Lime oil was found to be “more effective than antidepressants.”  (Study).  Lime essential oil is high in the chemical constituent d-limonene  demonstrated “anti-stress action” in animal research trials, which claimed “a beneficial role for d-limonene as an anti-stress substance”.

“These studies show that d-limonene exerts, through its metabolite perillyl alcohol (POH), a significant anti-stress action measurable by behavioral and physiologic parameters under the influence of the nervous system.”

Orange (Citrus sinensis): Orange essential oils has been known to calm the nervous system and support sleep.  Research has found that “orange peel essential oil has a positive effect in improving mothers’ sleep quality in the postpartum period.”  The study found “a significant improvement in sleep quality was observed in the group receiving orange peel essential oil compared with the control group at 8 weeks after delivery”

Orange essential oil has also been found to reduce anxiety which can interfere with sleep.  Orange “demonstrated acute anxiolytic (anxiety reducing) activity” in an animal rat study on the Anxiolytic-like effect of sweet orange.

Futher, research on the effects of olfactory stimulation with rose and orange oil on prefrontal cortex activity backs this up, finding “that olfactory stimulation by rose or orange oil induces physiological and psychological relaxation.”  Study participants also reported an increase in “comfortable,” “relaxed,” and “natural” feelings.

Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin): Patchouli, is a member of the mint family originating from Southeast Asia that is known for its sedative properties that can be help for balancing an overactive mind, managing stress and supporting sleep.

Research has found that inhalation of spikenard essential oils is sedating, especially if combined with other essential oils. “Patchouli and spikenard showed significant sedative effects. The effect was stronger for a mixture of oils than for any of the single oils. This suggests that the oil mixture may have synergistic activity.”

Inhaling patchouli oil is thought to encourage the release of relaxation chemical messengers like serotonin and dopamine which helps ease feelings of anger, anxiety and anxiousness which is one reason that patchouli oil is commonly used during prayer.

Spikenard (Nardostachys jatamansi): Spikenard is derived from the dried roots of Nardostachys chinensis,  a flowering plant of the valerian family that grows in the Himalayas that is widely used as an herbal tranquilizer. Inhalation of Spikenard was found to have a sedative effect on mice.   Additional research “provides evidence supporting the traditional sedative use of spikenard.”

Spikenard showed a sedative effect when administered by inhalation.  The sedative properites are attributed to an active components of Spikenard, known as sesquiterpenoids that were isolated from an acetone extract of spikenard.  These “highly effective sedative components” inhibited locomotion in mice and induced sleep to the same extent as diazepam, commonly referred to as Valium.

Tangerine (Citrus reticulata): Soothes and sedates the body, relieving anxiety, tension, stress, systemic inflammation which in turn soothes depression, anger and impulsive responses. Tangerine also promotes hormonal secretions that help the body relax into calm.

Research on the use of aromasticks to help with sleep problems found that inhaling tangerine essential oil by means of an aromastick (a personal inhaler device containing essential oils) significantly improved sleep.  Tangerine essential oil is believed to calm the mind and relax the body, allowing for a peaceful sleep.  92% of those studied reported that they would continue to inhale tangerine essential oil to support relaxation and restful sleep.  Tangerine essential oil has also been found to support stress management, alleviating depression and relieve anxiety.

Ylang Ylang(Cananga odorata genuina): Ylang ylang essential oil works directly on brain chemicals to reduce anxiety and depression.

Ylang Ylang is believed to balance the central nervous system, calm blood pressure and support mental relaxation, all of which help to calm depression nervousness. It has been also reported to have blood pressure lowering effect suggesting its potential use in managing hypertension.

Research has found Ylang Ylang “indeed possess sedative, relaxing, and also harmonization effects” and provides “relief of depression and stress.”

A study on The effects of the inhalation method using essential oils on blood pressure and stress responses of clients with essential hypertension found that inhaling lavender, ylang ylang, and bergamot oils once daily for four weeks reduced cortisol levels, psychological stress, and blood pressure in people with essential hypertension.

An additional clinical study concluded that both cortisol and systolic blood pressure declines after inhalation of a combination of lavender, ylang ylang, marjoram, and neroli oil in those with high blood pressure or pre-high blood pressure

Similarly, animal research found that ylang ylang essential oil and its major constituents (benzyl benzoate, linalool, and benzyl alcohol) reduce anxiety in mice, and modifies neurotransmitter levels (decreases dopamine in the striatum and increase serotonin in the hippocampus).

“I have been using the Sleep™ blend for 3 nights, applying it to the back of my neck and I am finding that falling asleep is much easier and I love the way the blend smells. Just wanted to let you know I am really pleased with this blend and I’m thrilled to add it to my “sleep hygiene” tool box.”
-Rachel Bravmann

“I purchased the oils because I have been having difficulty sleeping for a number of years. Like most people I have tried just about everything available. I tried the Circadian Rhythm™ and Sleep™ the other night and slept for 6 hours straight. It was a true luxury. Last night I woke up about 3 times and reapplied the oils and returned to sleep.”

“I hope you’ve been doing well. I had to give you an update on my insomniac client who was to start using Circadian Rhythm™ and Sleep™…She began sleeping fully through the night the VERY FIRST time she started using the oils. We have modified her diet, but she wasn’t on any other supplements at the time. She has recurrent nightmares, but has only had one in the last week and fell right back to sleep. She feels like a new woman. Her constitution is pretty strong and she doesn’t respond well to subtle remedies like homeopathic’s, so we’ll be experimenting more with oils as we go along. Yay for oils!”

    Love your sleep oil. It’s the best. Can’t sleep without it

  2. Amba

    Just want to share, that I LOVE the Sleep blend, been using it for a couple of weeks and can’t wait to go to bed so I can inhale it. I LOVE the combination of scents. And something really miraculous happened, last night I did not wake up even once to go to the bathroom, usually I wake up 1-2 times. This is something that has not happened for decades, can’t even remember the last time I slept through the whole night.

  3. Marysue

    The sleep oil has made a huge difference for me. I fall asleep more quickly and generally have a more restful night’s sleep

  4. Dyan

    First time I used Sleep on the bottom of my feel last night…slept through the night. First time in a long time. Thanks Jodi Cohen!

  5. Anna

    I really love this oil. I put a little behind my ears at bedtime and I’m sleeping way better. I used to wake up 4-5 times during the night and with this oil I’m waking up only once or twice and I feel way more rested in the morning. It’s a big improvement for me.

  6. Mimi

    Hi Jodi, I’m amazed at how well the Sleep formula is helping! I’ve had chronic insomnia for as long as I can remember (I’m 56). I’m also impressed by the quality, the information included and the amazing smell! I’ll definitely be reordering.

  7. Sherry

    I have searched & searched for many years for something to help me sleep. I decided to give your essential oils a try, not expecting much.

    I was AMAZED!!!!! First night I slept through the night without waking up !! After over a week, I have continued to sleep so good. Even if I wake up, I go right to sleep. Dream more too, and remember them.

    I ordered more, including others to try ! I’m so excited, and want to learn more about essential oils, and how they can help me !!

    A customer for life!!

  8. Liz

    Using Parasympathetic & Sleep formulas on my feet before bed helps me get to sleep, sleep more deeply and lessens awakenings during the night. My scent sensitivity keeps me from using Parasympathetic blend behind my earlobes, but it seems to work fine on my feet.
