We know about the side effects of not getting enough sleep. And yet, rarely do we do anything about.
I ask you: what is better after a long day of work or when you're amidst a stressful life period than soaking in a bath and indulging in homeopathic bedtime rituals?

What we choose to do with our evening hours directly impacts our quality of sleep, significantly influencing our mood and energy levels the next day. 
I encourage you to clear your calendar as much as possible for an evening dedicated to holistic beauty, wellness, and silencing the mind chatter.
Here are some handy steps on having a deeply meditative & holistic sleep:

1. Power down: Ensure bedtime is a digital-free zone. The bright blue glow of screens can disrupt your body clock so it's important to tech-off at least 30 minutes before snoozing.
2. Dry brush your skin: Dry body brushing not only encourages lymphatic drainage (which eliminates the body’s toxins and promotes oxygen throughout the blood) but also keeps your skin soft, supple & smooth. Perfect right before you pop into the bath.  
3. Indulge in a detox bath: One of my favourite ways to unwind and enrich my senses is by taking a long, luxurious bathtub dip with epsom salts. This salt helps replenish the body’s magnesium levels and relaxes the body. Add a scoop of our DREAM SOAK (which you can claim free when you purchase DREAM MIST) to water for a soul-nourishing experience.
4. Practise gratitude: One of the most effective ways to create a sense of calm and happiness before sleep is to focus on everything that is going right in your life, as opposed to what's going wrong. Emanating gratitude and counting your blessings has been scientifically proven to release Dopamine - a feel-good hormone that makes you feel uplifted and positive. 
5. Receive massage: If you’ve got a partner who’s nice enough to help you out and even rub your feet, get them to use a few drops of GOODNIGHT BABY and massage into skin, targeting areas of tension like lower back, shoulders, neck and feet. You can also give yourself a massage - a beautiful act of self love
6. Master meditation: The mind chatter can be relentless and release excess cortisol in the blood stream which can contribute to insomnia and feels of restfulness. Meditation helps us stay centred and come back into the present moment, helping to reduce anxiety and stress. Placing crystals around your body (for grounding), and focusing on the breath or listening to a guided medi can work wonders on our mind, body and spirit.

7. Use essential oils: Using natural scents like eucalyptus and lavender can provide the little bed time boost you need. Make friends with aromatherapy by spritzing DREAM MIST around the body, which can help you chill out when your mind is still racing from the day. A deep, anxiety-free sleep ensures that you’ll be more radiant and energetic in the morning.
DREAM MIST RITUAL

TO USE: Spray onto the pillow, over the crown of the head, onto the heart and the soles of the feet.

Take 3 deep breaths and repeat the affirmation. Feel yourself unwind and drift off to sleep.

AFFIRMATION: “ I now allow myself to let go of the day. With each inhale I feel relaxed and calm, with each exhale I soften and release.”
Whether you indulge in 1 or all of these steps, you owe it to yourself to have a peaceful slumber.

    As a new mum, broken sleep is a definite and the quality of these short naps are not fantastic… Occasionally, I have more rested sleep when baby’s in my arms napping with me. :D

    A gentle self-massage applied to my temples with lavender oil . Mindfulness and giving thanks for my day while going through my breathing exercises. Breathe in for a count of 4 seconds…HOLD for 7 seconds… Breath out slowly for a count of 8 seconds. This centres me , slows my hearth rate and helps me drift off for a full nights sleep. BLISS xxx
