Natural sleep aid
Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy essential oil synergy blend is an all natural sleep aid formulated by GSPI to alleviate insomnia. Fast acting and safe, Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy is topical, meaning that it is applied to the skin at bedtime. Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy natural sleep aid is used by people who have mild, moderate or chronic insomnia. It has also been shown to relieve the symptoms of anxiety, panic and depression, as well as to reduce the discomfort from PMS, fibromyalgia and more.

Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy natural topical sleep aid is a potent woodsy blend containing 99.9% pure, imported, therapeutic grade essential oils / plant extracts. Most aromatherapy synergy blends for deep natural sleep have only two key ingredients, one of them being lavender oil which is not highly effective for insomnia. Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy synergy blend has six essential oils, bergamot (bergaptene free), chamomile Roman, marjoram sweet: not for use by pregnant women, neroli (bitter orange blossom), valerian root (we use only the best), and petitgrain. Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy natural topical sleep aid is diluted 50/50 (most companies use a 20/80 dilution to increase their profit margin) with grapeseed oil -- a light, fast absorbing, moisturizing, fragrance free carrier oil -- so that our formula can be applied directly to the skin at bedtime or used in the bath. Deep Sleep ® natural sleep aid is blended by hand by us in small batches to keep it fresh. For your safety, neither the bottles nor the packaging comes from China.
Our blend contains 50% essential oils and 50% grapeseed oil. Most companies use a 20/80 dilution to increase their profit margins. If we did that, you would need to use more oil, and wind up with greasy, stained bedding. Therefore, if you dilute Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy further, and you don't use more product, we cannot guarantee its effectiveness. Rather than adding more carrier oil, try using Smooth All Over cream, which contains no mineral oil, which forms a barrier and blocks absorption. SAO is fast absorbing and unscented. Wait until completely absorbed.

General Product Info
GSPI dba Just Relax is the manufacturer. It took us 10 years to perfect our Deep Sleep ® natural sleep aid. There are at least five other US companies that we know of that have an aromatherapy / essential oil blend called Deep Sleep. Do not accept substitutes. Our formula contains a very high percentage of neroli oil, the third most expensive essential oil in the world, and theirs has none -- although our retail prices, based on our dilution, not volume, are the same or less than theirs. See ingredients.
Frequently Asked Questions
Although our bottles may be small, we offer a 50% concentration of the right ingredients to help you sleep. Don't be misled by other companies offering you a 20% dilution in a larger bottle than ours, that contain a high concentration of lavender, which is for relaxation, not insomnia. Our costs to formulate Deep Sleep ® increased by 32% between 2008 and 2013; however, our retail & wholesale prices have not changed since 2006.

How to apply it
Because Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy is diluted 50/50 with grapeseed oil, you can and should apply it directly to the skin. It's ready for use. This is especially helpful late at night when you can't sleep. Deep Sleep ® is not as fragrant as our other two formulas. Therefore, we recommend keeping it away from your upper body. You can bath in it, although the water will dilute the ingredients further, and the odor could disrupt your sleep. Unlike swallowing pills, which can take up to 60 minutes to digest, using Deep Sleep ® is fast, gentle and non-habit forming. In no time you will start to feel a bit woozy, like you've just had two glasses of wine -- which to most of us is a very pleasant feeling. If you awaken after 4 to 6 hours, reapply sparingly, preferably to the soles of the feet for faster absorption. After trying Deep Sleep ® once or twice, you will have a better sense of exactly how much is right for you. The amount of Deep Sleep ® you will need will depend on how sensitive you are, your weight, age, the severity of your insomnia or anxiety, and your general health. If symptoms persist, see your doctor.

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), 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 Deep Sleep ® formula.
What are the exact proportions?
Like any secret recipe, although we told you what's inside the bottle, since aromatherapy is neither a food nor a drug, and since it is not ingested, it is not governed by the Food and Drug Administration. Therefore, we are not required by law to give you the exact proportions.
COA: Certificate of Authenticity
A COA is a document 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 Deep Sleep ® 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 each and every time you order Deep Sleep ® 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 Deep Sleep ® 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 does 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 Deep Sleep ® 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 Deep Sleep ® that we blended over five years ago, and it works just fine. Therefore, based on our experience with both formulas, the shelf life of Deep Sleep ® cannot be accurately determined, but it is considerably more than two years.
How much will I need?
The amount of Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy that you will need will depend on your weight, age, sex, health: your frequency of insomnia, and your sensitivity to aromatherapy. After trying Deep Sleep ® 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 Deep Sleep once every three months. He uses Deep Sleep ® 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 Deep Sleep ® lasted a week.
Who makes it? / Licensing
Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy is blended by hand in small batches for freshness by Gail Seymour, President, GSPI dba Just Relax... ® / Communications Vice-President, Association for Holistic Health. She is interested in licensing her formula, and potentially selling the product name, to a major international company.
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, Deep Sleep ® aromatherapy will have a greenish tint. If the grapeseed oil is more yellow, Deep Sleep ® 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 Deep Sleep ® 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 Deep Sleep ® 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.
For bathing / Deep Sleep ® Bath Oil
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 Deep Sleep ® 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.
Warning: Never apply neat / undiluted essential oils directly to the skin. Never ingest (drink) them. Do not use Deep Sleep ® 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 Deep Sleep ®. 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 Deep Sleep ® for bathing. We don't want you to fall asleep in the tub or slip getting out. Disclaimer: See link below.
