Sleepytime Essentials

Sleepytime

It’s incredible how good night’s sleep makes such a difference when it comes to our health and well being.  Stress, mentally putting together a to-do list, restlessness, anxiety– sometimes it can be difficult to shut down and settle in to sleep.

Here are some of the products we use in our home to help us shut down for the evening and drift off to sleep.

Lavender Dream Cream

PHE_lavender_2_172In folklore, pillows were filled with lavender flowers to help restless people fall sleep. Scientific evidence suggests that aromatherapy with lavender may slow the activity of the nervous system, improve sleep quality, promote relaxation, and lift mood in people suffering from sleep disorders.

Pure Haven Essentials offers many products with lavender essential oil, but this one is one of my favorites!  I was so excited when they announced this last February–I bought mine that night!  Combining the deep hydration of our best-selling Dream Cream and the soothing effects of lavender, it is the perfect product to apply right before crawling into bed.  I personally like to apply it on my hands and chest so I can breathe in lavender while I lay in bed.

Tranquility Essential Oil Blend

PHE_tranqJosh and I have a essential oil diffuser in our bedroom.  It has become a part of our bedtime routine to fill the diffuser with water and add a few drops of the Tranquility essential oil blend.

My fiance, Josh, is a light sleeper.  He wakes up with the slightest noise and then can’t seem to settle back down and fall asleep again.  He was a bit reluctant at first to try the essential oils, but after a few nights trying it he was the one reminding me, “Don’t forget the essential oil diffuser!”

Monster Spray

Our Monster Spray is not just for kids!  It can clear your grown-up mind of those “monsters” from the day too!  This room and linen spray is perfect for spritzing your pillow before you lay down your head.  This blend of lavender and chamomile essential oils is comforting and calming.  It is also perfect for on-the-go if you have trouble sleeping while traveling.
PHE_Aprilcustomer_3_17Monster Spray is also this month’s Customer Special.  Receive your free Monster Spray when you order $95 or more in products.

 

Since we’ve started using these products at bedtime, Josh and I have noticed our quality of sleep has improved.  We wake up much more rested and ready to start the day!
