We recently put together a soothing combination of our favorite products for a restorative nighttime routine. We'd thought that we'd share it in the hope that it inspires you to treat yourself to a wonderful night time routine too! There are three hero formulas that, when combined, work together to facilitate detoxification and soothe the mind and body.
A Cup of Healing Tea
Our Healing Tea is a blend of herbs that work together as a powerful detoxifier and regenerator of your body. It contains white oak bark, plantain leaf, and black walnut hull to name a few. It's described as being "rich and complex". You'll find that a hot mug of it will instantly begin to soothe the body and mind. It is caffeine free and has a strong herbal taste. We recommend lighting some candles and incense, and enjoying it with a good book.
A Detoxifying Bath
The second step, a hot bath is a restorative experience of its own. We added our favorite Flowers & Salts Bath Soak for a luxurious floral bath fit for a queen! It's relaxing effect lifts your mood, calms your nerves, helps you sleep better, and softens your skin. It's ingredients are: Dead Sea Salt, Epsom Salt, Lavender Essential Oil, and Dried Flowers. Dead Sea Salt eases tension and stiffness in your muscles. Epsom Salt reduces stress and eliminates toxins from your body. Lavender Essential Oil boosts circulation and energizing skin cells. Dried Flowers soothes dry skin, fights puffiness and promotes relaxation. You might choose to continue drinking Our Healing Tea and reading your book while you soak, or opt for some instrumental music.
Our Favorite Herbal Sleep Spray
Approximately nine million people take prescription anxiety and sleep aids, including benzodiazepines. These pills are only meant for the short term. In fact, studies show that prescription sleep aids can be ineffective with repeated use. Not to mention, these pills can become habit-forming or promote other health concerns. Our bodies run on a 24-hour cycle that is dependent on hormones. Melatonin is one of the most important hormones in our sleep-wake cycle. Its presence lowers excitatory hormones that keep us awake during the day. As the morning comes, melatonin levels will decrease, allowing our daytime hormones that promote focus and cognitive function to take the reins.
When we experience anxiety and sleep problems, it disrupts the fine hormonal balance that keeps us functioning optimally. Stimulatory hormones like adrenaline and cortisol that keep us alert during the day will remain active at night. Their nightly presence will inevitably create stress during the day that only ramps up cortisol production.
Using melatonin supplements as natural sleep aids can help bring hormonal balance back to the system. We developed Sleep Now to provide you fast-acting support that you stay asleep throughout the night. You'll wake up refreshed with no morning grogginess, and it's not addictive so you can think of it as your secret weapon for when you most need it.
Try our nighttime routine!
In summary, Our Healing Tea is a great first step because it will gently warm your body from the inside out. It also begins to cleanse your digestive tract and prepares your body for restorative sleep. The bath salts are also wonderful because they work to release muscle tension, eliminate toxins and boost circulation. And finally, Sleep Now melatonin spray supports more restful sleep with a calming herbal blend.
