Falling asleep and staying asleep, naturally.
Sleep and general well-being are very closely linked, getting an adequate amount of sleep each and every night is just as important to your overall health as eating well and exercising regularly. The average person needs 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep to allow their body to rest, recharge and repair. Our bodies are made to feel good, yet, in our busy society, so many of us don’t get enough sleep, which often leaves us feeling lethargic, foggy or moody. We’ve put together a few helpful tips to help you fall asleep and stay asleep, naturally.
Create a comfortable sleeping space.
Our bodies need darkness to know when to shut off, ensuring your bedroom is dark, cool and comfortable will help you shut off and fall asleep. Using a diffuser with calming Pure Essential Oils can also help to set the mood for sleeping. We suggest Lavender, Clay Sage and Frankincense for best results.
Which Pure Essential Oils are best?
We created our Sleep well mix to help achieve a state of relaxed calm in order to fall asleep faster and enjoy a restful night, as each oil holds fantastic properties to assist with sleep. Soap Opera’s Pure essential oil pf Lavender is the ultimate relaxing and calming scent to help relieve tension and worry before bed. Blended with our Frankincense essential oil this combination can help calm your mind and body to ensure a deeper sleep. The addition of Clary Sage is fantastic to assist with reducing the levels of hormones associated with stress, such as cortisol, which can help you to have a good night’s rest.
Try to relax
Doing something relaxing, like taking a nice warm bath or applying a scrumptious body butter, can help you to unwind and de-stress before bedtime. We recommend our Lavender Body Butter, lavender is naturally calming and promotes a general sense of wellbeing, which makes it the perfect addition to your bedtime routine.
