Sweet Dreams, Naturally
How well have you been sleeping? Lately I've been asleep almost as soon as my head hits the pillow, thanks to a few natural "sleep aids" from Andrew Weil and Origins.
It seems many women have sleep issues these days, for one reason or another. But getting a good night’s sleep (at least 7 hours) is essential to giving our skin, hair and nails the ability to renew themselves and repair damage. Sleep also soothes our emotions, promotes mental alertness, supports a healthy immune system and can help to prevent heart disease.
When it comes to getting a good night's sleep, moms can use all the help they can get. Dr. Andrew Weil and Origins have come up with a natural solution that just may help - Origins Night Health Collection. Using Dr. Weil’s proven, soothing blend of 100% natural Chamomile, Lavender and Mandarin essential oils, these products help you relax before bedtime to assist you in getting the rest you need.
The Origins Night Health Collection consists of Bedtime Bath Oil, Bedtime Face Cream, Bedtime Balm and Bedtime Spray. Start by taking a soothing bath using the Bedtime Bath Oil to signal your body that it's time to unwind. Then rub the Bedtime Balm on your wrists or the back of your neck (or ask your kids or partner to do it for you). The Face Cream helps to repair signs of aging while helping to calm your nerves. And the Bedtime Spray (my personal fave) mists you with lavender, mandarin and chamomile to put you in a tranquil frame of mind. I've begun to look forward to my nighttime ritual and have drifted off to sleep a little more peacefully. Perhaps I should try this on the kids!
