De-Stress and Sleep Deep – 4 Relaxing Products to Help You Unwind
Stress is a normal part of life, but it’s so important to keep it in check. Over time, constant stress may cause long-term health problems. Whether it’s the usual day-to-day family and work stresses, or the general strain from living through a pandemic and extreme weather events, it’s more important than ever to relax and unwind.
First things first. Take a deep breath. Really deep. Good.
Next up, here is a curated selection of Herb & Root products that can give you an extra dose of self-care to help you de-stress and achieve more restful sleep.
1. Take a Therapeutic Bath
Warm baths are relax tense muscles, remove waste from the body through sweat, and improve mental clarity.
Make sure the temperature is just above body temperature. Bring a glass of cool water to sip while in the bath. Add 10 drops of Eau de Provence Bath & Body Oil, a combination of Lavender, Bergamot, and Jasmine shown to reduce cortisol levels.
Stay in the bath for 20-30 minutes, taking deep meditative breaths. Pour glasses of cool water over yourself to help your body shed some heat. Stretch and massage sore muscles while your body is heated in the water.
2. Dust Powder on your Sheets
After a warm soothing bath, your body might be feeling a little warm. Dust a little Lavender Dusting Powder over your sheets to cool your sheets, soak up any moisture, and help you drift to sleep faster to the soothing scent of Lavender.
3. Use an eye pillow
with our Lavender Satin Eye Pillow
Filled with organic flaxseed and lavender buds, this pillow provides light weighted pressure on the eyelids, sending a message to the nervous system to put the body and mind at rest and enjoy a deep night of sleep. The scent of soothing Lavender buds adds an extra aromatherapy benefit.
Good night and sleep tight!
