SLEEP

Do you have trouble getting a good night's sleep?

Here’s some tips to help you enjoy sweet dreams!

1. Creating a peaceful bedroom sanctuary. Light a candle, turn off the lights in preparation, have fresh clean or misted bedlinen.
2. Incorporate the essential oil benefits of aromatherapy into your pre-sleep routine.
3. Have a hot bath about 2 hours before you sleep. It raises the body temperature, which then drops rapidly causing the release of melatonin (the sleep hormone)
4. Drink herbal lavender & chamomile tea to wind down before bed (you can also keep a glass next to the bed to sip on if you wake in the night)
5. Keep an aromatherapy rollette next to bed and apply to temples, under nose and chest if you wake.
6. Avoid screen time in the hour or two before sleep, meditate or read a relaxing book instead.
7. Don’t worry if you wake up at night. It is normal for us to wake several times between sleep cycles. Turn your anxiety into gratefulness for the comfort of your bed, the softness of your pillow and the safety of your home.
8. If you have a partner who snores, silicone earplugs are amazing!
9. Get into a rhythm of sleeping and waking at the same time, and get out in some sunlight during the day.
10. Honour the importance of adequate quality sleep each night by going to bed early enough to get the hours you need, and giving your mind time to wind down.
