just before you go to bed.
First massage the blend into the big toe
because it houses the brain. The brain releases Serotonin which helps promote
sleep. The big toe also contains the reflex for the Pineal gland and the
Hypothalamus both of which control the sleep/wake pattern
Second massage the blend into the adrenal reflex

Third massage the blend into the Solar Plexus and
Diaphragm to aid relaxation and encourage deep breathing.
