Liquid Ambien

Behold the time has come for my Liquid Xanax follow up :) I have come to so many realizations in the last few weeks. One of them came from my sweet Grandma who told me "you need to just help people the same way that you were helped." Wow. That hit me hard. Because I realized that I have so much to offer. And that is ONLY because I have found help a certain way from various sources of information and products. And that is what I have to share. So the benefit of what I have to offer is that I will only speak on behalf of the real experiences that I have personally had and in some cases, the experiences that other people have had extreme success with.

I don't want to blab on about things that I don't know a thing about. Because there are a lot of things that I DO know a lot about. And that is my point of creating this blog. When I took the time to focus on what I am really moving forward in my life I finally found a way to explain it true to my soul. My focus and my passion is HEALING. It felt so beautiful to finally get to the core of what I want to do. And it makes sense. I have had to do a lot of healing in my life. I have healed from grief, loss, addiction, depression, anxiety among other things. And I know that I chose to experience these things so I could help other people.

So that is what I am going to do. I am going to help people the same way that I found help. And comfort people the same way that I found comfort. What a blessing to hear the responses that I have received about my 'Liquid Xanax' post. So many people struggle with anxiety and depression. And unfortunately doctors are quick to pull out their prescription pad to "help you take care of that." I have different beliefs and that's only because I have the experience to back it up.

I guess I should explain my battle with insomnia. I have struggled with insomnia for about 9 years. It started in high school. It was awful. I just could not fall asleep. And if I happened to fall asleep and then woke up in the middle of the night, there was not a dang chance that I was going to fall back asleep. So I started with Melatonin, then went to Tylenol PM, then Ambien and have recently (up until about 2 months ago whoop whoop) been on Trazodone. I love sleeping, I'll be honest. But when you have to deal with getting no sleep, it is a killer. I absolutely depended on my "pill" (which ever one I was taking at the time) to put me to sleep. I can proudly say now that I am OFF OF ALL OF MY PILLS! AHHH I could just scream it from the rooftops. And I now rely on my oils to put me to sleep. The side effects to be expected are: relaxation and no grogginess for the whole following day. It is awesome.

So let me give you my recipe for my Liquid Ambien:

20 drops lavender
7 drops vetiver
Top off with FCO (fractionated coconut oil)
Mixed in a roller bottle
**Apply on feet and neck before bedtime as needed.

Lavender is very well known to assist with sleep. But with the issues that I have personally experienced I need something heavy duty to add to the lavender (enter vetiver). Vetiver is known for its soothing and calming effects on the central nervous system. I think the main reason that I have struggled with sleeping is just because of what goes on in my mind, kinda hard to turn my thoughts off. And that is where the vetiver comes in. The earthy aroma just tells my brain its time to calm down, get your head out of the clouds and come to sleep :) Never hurts to add a little balance blend in addition before bed or use serenity blend to substitute for lavender.


** Now I should put a little disclaimer (or a whole 'nother blog post) just explaining that not EVERYTHING works for EVERYONE. And essential oils are not any different. I have had to try lots of different combos for different issues like digestion ect. So realize that you shouldn't get discouraged if something doesn't work for you. Keep trying! Maybe you say "Maggie, I really think that I'm going to need more Vetiver then that!" BY ALL MEANS ADD SOME MORE!!!! Until you find peace! Because it is available to you. Don't give up on yourself. I believe in natural healing. And I believe in the healing power of essential oils. You will too :) All I can tell you is what works for me, and what works for other people! Find what works for you! And then share that with me and the people you love! Its bout dang time to share the gift of natural healing. I'm no doctor, but I would like to slpwly introduce you to my medicine cabinet (which looks much different now) and assist you in finding alternative choices for your health and wellness. Enjoy :)

  2. If this will help with my insomnia, I'd be willing to share it with my son who also suffers from insomnia (he's 34 yrs. old)...I don't want to be forced to take medication in order to get a good night's sleep... would like to give this Passion Pill: Liquid Ambien a try and would be willing to spread the news on how great it works.

  5. Just want to add that I used the Liquid Xanax blend a couple of days ago, by just rubbing on a couple drops of each. No FCO added. I put it on the back of my neck and on my feet. Lets just say that two hours later...I was passing out! In the middle of the morning! Crazy! It relaxed me a little TOO well! Thank you! I needed this. I'll be rubbing these on every night from now on. I'm going to try this ambien blend tonight. I have had severe issues lately due to losing our little grandson in February. My mind won't stop thinking on the what if's..Hoping these blends will help calm my mind. Thank you!

  26. I would love to share this little miracle in a bottle with my mom, who has been on antidepressants and sleeping pills since my dad passed away a few years ago. It's hard to see her struggle with the side effects and the emotional roller coaster she experiences when she tries to stop taking the prescriptions. Thank you for your insightful blog. Best wishes to you.

  27. Would love to try this sleeping blend! Have struggled with sleep for a long while, and don't want to get into prescription sleep aids. Thanks much!

  28. This works! Only difference I used (as I didn't have fractionated coconut oil) is I substituted grapeseed oil for the FCO. I use a cotton ball and apply it to the back of my neck and soles of feet prior to sleep. And I have been sleeping almost too much...some nights 11 hours, during school break! I am trying to get my hubby to try it, as he is a light sleeper and would benefit from several good night's sleep. Thank you for posting this!
