Gifts for sleep - Relax and Restore Bath Ritual

You are not alone if you are struggling to sleep at night. The NHS say that 1 in 3 of us suffer from poor sleep. We are all well aware of the importance of sleep when it comes to how we are feeling day to day, but prolonged spells of poor sleep can mean bad news for our overall health. We spend about a third of our lives asleep. Sleep is essential - it is as important to our bodies as eating, drinking and breathing, and is vital for maintaining good mental and physical health.

We think that it is important to establish a regular nightly routine which can include a thoughtful selection of essential oils and botanicals. We believe wellbeing starts with the little moments. Those small steps each day that make a big difference to your wellbeing.

Here are just some of the things that we try and do to help manage how we sleep:

   1) Inhale

Essential oils like frankincense, ylang ylang and rose geranium in our Peace Pillow/Atmosphere Mist, and vetivert, lavender and clary sage in our Tranquility Roll On have soothing properties that reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, to help you switch off. If you do one thing for your sleep, keep a Pillow Mist on your nightstand. Every spritz helps lull you to sleep.

   2) Bathe in the evening

Having a bath or shower an hour before bed has been shown to really help your circadian rhythm, as it helps your body release heat and wind down for sleep. Our Serenity Bath Ritual is perfect before bedtime to deeply relax and help provide a restful night’s sleep.

   3) Relax and unwind

Start meditating before you go to bed to help relax and clear your mind. Try a guided meditation on youtube or a mindfulness technique. Other ways to relax and take your mind elsewhere are, listening to soothing and calming music, read a book or do some journal-ing.

   4) Breathing techniques

Breathing techniques are a great way of getting to sleep (and staying there once you’ve nodded off). Studies have shown that 20 minutes of slow-breathing exercises before going to sleep is enough to help insomniacs get to sleep faster, wake up less frequently in the night and then go back to sleep faster if they did wake up. The reason? It’s all down to the ability of mindful breathing to help your nervous system move into relaxation mode, and the calming effect of the focused breathing itself.

   5) Reduce blue light exposure

Exposure to blue light might be beneficial during the day, but at night it can disrupt your sleep by impacting your circadian rhythm. Blue light is emitted by electronic devices like TV's, mobile phone and computers, avoid using them right before your bedtime.

   6) A soothing drink

Drink a soothing herbal tea an hour before bed time. Our Hush’ botanical tea has been expertly blended by a Medical Herbalist to help you to unwind, calm and relax.

It really is that simple to make a start on a routine, and every little REALLY helps.
