Serenity Soft-Gels

Can supplementation help you to get better sleep? One of today’s greatest health issues is lack of sleep. Research shows that sleep is pivotal in managing stress and supporting a healthy lifestyle.

Side affects of taking some over the counter and prescription sleep aids sometimes leave you groggy or with anxious feelings.

Let’s explore doTERRA’s Serenity Soft-gels. Known as “the restful complex”, Serenity Soft-gels is a unique combination of Lavender essential oil and natural plant extracts in a vegetarian softgel to help you get the restful sleep you need. Let’s explore what’s inside to see if it’s right for you!

5 Ingredients to Better Sleep

There are only 5 ingredients inside, but these 5 ingredients combine powerful tools that help you get to a restful state so that you can get to sleep and stay asleep!


Lavender – One of the chemical components in Serenity Softgels is linalool. A 2017 study showed linalool can be calming to the nervous system. This is because of its impact on GABA.  GABA is (gamma aminobutyric acid). As GABA attaches to a protein in your brain known, it produces a calming effect. This may help with feelings of anxiety, stress, and fear.


L-theanine – is the second component in Serenity Softgels. You may not have heard this word before, but you’ve probably unknowingly taken it! This is an amino acid not an essential oil.  It is also found in green tee, oolong and black tea.  If you are feeling a little jittery, like when you may have had too much caffeine, L-theanine can help you relax. It is non-sedating and works for 4 hours.
