A few things about me…
- I’m now working with Neals Yard Remedies to give the most incredible signature facial + massage treatments with their products. Neals Yard Remedies Organic has a true holistic background + amazing natural, organic skincare which I am so excited to use on my clients!
- I reallllllly struggle to wind down at night. Having worked my butt off for the last 21 months means I struggle on a daily basis to just switch off!
Those two things have led to me mixing up my bedtime routine to a) utilise some of the Neals Yard products I have and b) to force my weary mind + body into sleep mode!
Step 1: Run a hot bath
Step 2: In a small bowl, mix 4 tbsp of carrier oil with up to 10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil (make sure you don’t apply the essential oil direct to your skin – this is harmful). Lavender is soothing, calming + relaxing.
Step 3. Take 10 to enjoy your bath whilst really focusing on your breathing (plenty of apps for your iPhone to guide you here).
Step 4. Pop a few drops of the Lavender Essential Oil into an oil burner in your bedroom.
Step 5. Apply the Neals Yard Beauty Sleep Body Lotion to dry skin. Moisturing + calming; it includes essential oils combined with olive + pumpkin seed oil to leave that silky soft feel to your skin.
This lotion is actually limited edition and available as a free gift only to anyone who wants to host a Neals Yard Party. If you can’t wait to get your hands on it, you can find the corresponding Body Butter here!
If you too have difficulty in winding down at night, try one or all of the above steps, I promise you won’t regret it! Sometimes the smallest things make the biggest difference!
