Best essential oils for getting your beauty sleep

Best essential oils for getting your beauty sleep

While our Age Defy+ range will regenerate your skin cells and help you to recapture the essence of youth, you’ll never feel as good as you do after a sound night’s sleep.

Beauty sleep is important but there’s plenty of scientific evidence to back up the integral role of sleep in a healthy lifestyle. Catching regular zzzz not only benefits your body – repairing damaged cells and muscles – but it also benefits your mind by helping you to maintain attention, refresh your memory, stimulate creativity and lower stress.

What’s more, new research suggests that regular, good quality sleep gained throughout a lifetime may have a significant impact on flushing out waste products from the brain, which have been related to health conditions such as Alzheimer’s.

Getting a good kip is not just down to the quality of your bed linen, although cool crisp organic cotton sheets and a not-too-soft-but-not-too-firm pillow are a great start.

 

HEAVEN SCENT BY GREEN PEOPLE

Aromas, good and bad, can affect your sleep in a big way. It’s likely that any smell that evokes feelings of comfort will encourage relaxation but scientists suggest that the fragrances of particular essential oils – such as lavender, chamomile, bergamot and geranium – act to unwind body and mind, therefore inducing slumber. Many of these natural essential oils can be found in our ranges of natural skin care, organic hair shampoo and organic baby products.

 

LAVENDER

Native to the Mediterranean but found growing throughout the UK; lavender’s fragrance has been scientifically-proven to have soothing effects that relieve nervous tension. You can wash your worries away with our Daily Aloe Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower Gel, which contains soothing lavender, and make sure your little ones have sweet dreams by using our Lavender Burst Organic Children Bath & Shower and Shampoo. Finish by smoothing our Organic Babies Soothing Baby Salve over any dry areas and you’ll both sleep like babies.
