These 5 All Natural Sleep Aids Can Help You Fight Holiday Stress...
It seems these days we are all searching for the perfect night’s sleep, and particularly at potentially stressful times of year like the holidays, a little all-natural assistance can be greatly appreciated. While we can’t promise you 8 hours of uninterrupted zzz’s, we have personally tested this entire sleep aid list, and consider each item to be of benefit to our beauty rest!
We’ll spritz a little of this lavender and sweet orange calming spray on our pillows before we climb into bed and enjoy a few calming deep breaths. No nasty chemicals in sight, anti-microbial ingredients even contribute to cleansing the air while we sleep.
This sunrise simulating alarm clock allows our bodies to wake naturally with a gradually increasing light, which is particularly pleasant throughout the dark winter months. Several alarm options are available including soothing waves and nature sounds, and a sunset setting soothes us to sleepiness with a gentle decrease in light set 30 minutes before we wan to be asleep.
As if a warm bath at the end of a long day wasn’t fabulous enough, the addition of magnesium infused bath salts not only softly hydrates our skin, but also helps lower cortisol levels leaving us blissed out and ready for bed!
We love indulging our sweet tooth with a warm mug of hot chocolate, and the addition of adaptogen mushrooms like organically grown reishi, means we’re also encouraging a healthy stress response and some much needed relaxation.
Harnessing the power of organic goji berries and lemon balm, this natural sleep aid is non-habit forming and helps fight stress related insomnia (we can relate!) and restlessness. We’re happy to add these vegan capsules to our wind down routine as needed.
