Everyone equates acuPUNCTURE with needles right? But did you know that other “tools” can be used to stimulate acupuncture points including essential oils?

For example, choose an essential oil known for being calming and apply it to the deepest part of your palms when your hands are cupped, the undersides of your wrists and the spot between your eyebrows (making sure the oil doesn’t get in your eyes!) to help you fall asleep. There are great aid-sleep acupuncture points in all of those places that you can access with the oil. Try it and see if it works for you!
