EFT and Essential Oils for Sleep

Updated: Jan 2


Tapping on specific points on the body can help release emotional tension and promote relaxation.


By applying or using essential oils prior to EFT Tapping, the limbic system in the brain is activated (where emotions are stored) and the emotional/energetic release from EFT is enhanced.


Begin by diffusing or applying your favorite relaxing oils (there are some suggestions below 👇)


Take a few deep breaths to center yourself and bring awareness to your body and mind. Using 3 finger tips, begin by gently tapping the Side of Hand (SH) point. State the following phases out loud as you tap:


EFT Tapping Side of Hand

”Even though I don’t believe anything will help me get to sleep, I love and accept myself anyway."


“Even though my mind is racing and I’m worried I will never fall asleep, I love and accept myself and my feelings."


“Even though I am tired and I want to sleep, my mind is still busy. I acknowledge and accept how I feel and I love myself anyway."


“Even though I’m feeling frustrated and angry because I can’t sleep, I am open to accepting myself anyway, right here, right now.”


Take a deep, relaxed inhale and exhale. Using 2 fingertips, Tap each point 7 times, or as long as it takes to say the following reminder phrases…

To maximize the effectiveness of EFT for better sleep, it’s beneficial to combine it with other sleep hygiene practices. These practices include establishing a consistent sleep schedule, creating a soothing bedtime routine, optimizing your sleep environment, and avoiding stimulating activities or substances close to bedtime.


By integrating EFT with these practices, you can enhance the overall quality of your sleep.


Sweet dreams 😴🐑🐑🐑


*note of caution: please be careful when using undiluted oils or using oils around pets.
