Wash The Day Away

Life can get busy so it’s important to destress and relax at the end of every day to improve your sleep. Start your evening routine by washing the day away with either a bath or shower – we find a warm bath more relaxing but it’s personal preference. Scents of lavender and chamomile are great for promoting relaxation so try to use products that contain these when washing. Our Calm Body Wash makes for a great addition to your soothing evening routine which lavender, chamomile, palmarosa and vetiver blending together to alleviate stress and reduce tension.

Calming Activities 

Did you know certain activities can be a mental stimulant, not only keeping you awake for longer but also reducing your quality of sleep. Activities like high impact exercise, watching TV or even learning a new skill late in the evening can affect your sleep. Switch these for some more relaxing hobbies like yoga, journaling or reading. You can also use this time to focus on your skincare and see this as part of your wind down time. Relax your mind and hydrate your skin with Calm Hand & Body Lotion, the perfect relaxing scent to help you drift off.

Creating a Sleep Sanctuary

Making your bedroom strictly a sleep sanctuary is a great way to sleep train your brain. Rooms clear of clutter with a soft colour palette have links to improving quality of sleep as they don’t over-stimulate the brain. Ensure your room has no electronic devices that will emit light which will allow you to fall asleep quicker and have a more rested sleep. For a bit of added zen, try our Glen Iorsa Pillow Mist as a room spray to help relax your mind.

Looking for the finishing touch? Try our Calm Pulse Point Oil on your wrists just before bed to help clear your mind and destress. Allow the functional fragrance of Calm wash over your conscious and allow you to peacefully drift off to sleep.
