Our Favorite Simple Sleep Aids

A good night's rest is a wonderful, but sometimes elusive experience.  If you find deep sleep difficult to find, here are 3 of our favorite sleep aids that are easy to incorporate into your nightly bedtime rituals.
  • Lavender Aromatherapy Candle
  • Lavender Linen Water
  • Lavender Body Butter

Our Favorite Natural Sleep Aid - Lavender

Lavender Aromatherapy Candle

Clean-burning soy wax is the base for this fragrant candle that is infused with our own farm-distilled organic lavender essential oil.  (We never use synthetic 'fragrances' or 'essences' which simply provide scent but none of the natural aromatherapeutic properties of pure essential oil straight from the flowers.)

As you begin your bedtime preparations, light a Lavender Aromatherapy Candle on your nightstand to infuse the room with the calming and soothing properties of lavender.  Be sure to trim the wick before lighting for the cleanest burn.

The convenient tin presentation is also perfect for travel to freshen accommodations and maintain your soothing pre-sleep routine.

Lavender Linen Water

The next simple step to add to your nighttime ritual is spritzing your bed linens with Lavender Linen Water.  Gently spritzing pillows and sheets will bring the relaxing and sleep-inducing effects of lavender essential oil to your place of repose.  This centuries-old practice is an excellent way to help fall back to sleep if you are woken during the night as well.

We are often asked if Lavender Linen Water will stain linens.  Ours will not because it contains only pure essential oil.  Lavender essential oil is an aromatic oil that completely evaporates, so it will not stain anything.

Lavender Body Butter

Finally, as you get into bed and pull the covers up, take a few minutes to massage Lavender Body Butter into your hands and mentally transition out of the day's activities and cares.  This luxurious cream will benefit the hands with a nighttime's worth of moisturization and provide you with an on-skin aromatherapy treatment to help you drift off even more readily.

If time allows or the need arises, use a little on your lips, elbows, knees and feet or anywhere that requires some extra care.

Now that you are well-moisturized and enveloped in the relaxing fragrance of pure lavender, blow out the Lavender Aromatherapy Candle, turn off the light, close your eyes and picture yourself drifting off to sleep in blooming fields of lavender.

The overall health and well-being benefits of being fully rested are well worth taking a few extra moments each evening to prepare for sleep.  These simple steps with our favorite sleep aids are wonderfully easy to add to your and your family's nightly routines.  Here's to good sleep for all!

And one final tip — replace the lid of the Lavender Aromatherapy Candle when it is extinguished to trap the smoke inside the tin so that it doesn't mingle with the delicate lavender aroma that has infused your bedroom.

 Sleep tight!
