Secrets to a Good Night’s sleep!

photo sleeping toolsInsomnia and stress are two issues women are concerned about an bring up to me about in my beauty business. I take their needs very serious and wanted to post about getting your beauty sleep and perhaps help you.

Here is a healthy pattern to consider nightly: Before you got to sleep or bed…Have a warm cup of calming Holy Basil or chamomile tea.

If you’re no into tea…a warm glass of milk will do. Take a warm bath with cheap Epsom salts.They are AMAZING and relax your muscles and detoxify too.I know what you’re thinking you’re not a bath person! BUT when you can’t sleep and have nights of insomnia this is worth a try. THEY WORK.

Shut off ANY electronics…Only got to bed with your sweetie or yourself not a phone,tablet and more.

Place a few drops of Aura Cacia lavender essential oil into a spray bottle with some distilled or spring water.Spray your room with this relaxing spray.

OR try Serious Insomnia by Jimm Harrison Aromatherapy on a cotton pad and take a sniff, This aromatherapy oil takes you from frazzled and stress to feeling fabulous.

A white noise machine is another useful tool. Turn it on for the ocean,birds tweeting on a spring day and more.My husband loves ours.

If you can’t go to sleep and do get up…go ahead and get up and go into another room and watch TV or read a book or magazine until you feel sleepy. OR do what I love to do and unclutter your head by writing things down in a notebook.

NEVER go to sleep angry with your spouse or children…you will NOT sleep well. Kiss & make up.
