A Restful Night's Sleep

After a busy and stressful day, it can be difficult to settle into restorative sleep. Up to 40 percent of the world's population gets insufficient sleep and the trend is increasing. Using simple techniques like a relaxing bedtime routine and healthy daytime habits, you can improve your sleep, so you wake up refreshed each day.

1. Make Your Bedroom a Restful Environment

Your bedroom is the last environment you see before shutting your eyes for sleep. The decoration and furniture in your room should bring a sense of peace that helps carry you into slumber. Keep your bedroom a space dedicated to sleep, and remove the clutter. Also ensure your bedding is comfortable and inviting, it should make you want to slip under the covers.

Eliminate light & noise and keep the temperature cool, between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius. Keep one of our Lavender Perfumed Sachets on the table in your room to help you feel settled and grounded as you close your eyes.

Next, light some candles to create a calming atmosphere:

2. Complete Your Bedtime Ritual

The secrets to a perfect nightly routine, from the South of France… Use calming essential oils from Provence to bring closure to your day and signal to your mind and body that it’s time for bed.

Spritz our Relaxing Pillow Mist which is made of essential oils from lavender, bergamot, mandarin and sweet orange on your pillow to calm your senses.


3. Sleeping Beauty - Reset Your Skin

Sleep is a natural beauty enhancer. A good night’s sleep reduces the stress hormone cortisol (which is responsible for thinning skin) while increasing melatonin (which acts like an antioxidant against fine lines and spots). During slumber, collagen-producing cells regenerate to increase skin’s elasticity and tightness.
