It's certainly fun to spend the entire day with friends and family. But there are few pleasures better than changing into some comfy clothes, snuggling up in your blanket, and getting lots of uninterrupted sleep. Sadly, sleeping isn't always as easy as we'd like it to be. After a busy day, giving ourselves a chance to unwind and relax seems nearly impossible.
Taking A Bath For Better Sleep
Sometimes, all you need to fall and stay sleep is a bath. Bathing gives you the quiet time you need to properly end the day. The warm water eases stress, so you can feel refreshed and calm in time for bed. Even the act of scrubbing off dirt can be soothing.
However, you should avoid going to bed directly after a bath. Instead, you should wait an hour after a bath and spend this time loosening up further and preparing for bed. For example, you can read a good book or lay out your clothes for work the next day.
If you really want to have a relaxing bath, here are a few things you can add to your bathwater to help you have a better quality of sleep.
Whether you're using the essential oil or a scented candle, lavender has a wonderful way of easing the mind and body. After a long day, it can be hard to let go of your worries even when you're already soaking in the tub. This not only makes it hard to enjoy your bath but makes sleeping near impossible as well. However, the scent of lavender will calm your mind and melt all your troubles away if only for several moments.
Lavender comes in a variety of products, so you can easily integrate it into your bathing experience. Add a drop or two of the essential oil right into your bathwater, or find a bubble bath or bath bomb with the oil or scent mixed in. Our Deep Relaxation Bath Soak is another product with lavender essential oil you can try.
Chamomile has a soothing quality that can instantly bring you relaxation. Like with lavender essential oil, you simply mix a drop or two of this oil into your bathwater. Bath salts enhanced with it, such as our Calm Bath Soak, are also available to you. If you'd rather not bathe with chamomile, it comes in the form of tea as well.
Dead Sea Salt And Pure Epsom Salt
When you're feeling tense, it's not just your mental state that is affected. Stress can take a toll on the body and trigger physical effects that could be keeping you up at night. While lavender and chamomile will ease the mind, Dead Sea salt helps calm the body by relaxing your muscles.
Epsom salt has the same quality. It can be enhanced with essential oils to provide aromatherapy benefits. Drop by our online store to learn about the bath products we have in stock.
