Aveda Lavender Fleurs Oil

After a long day, it can be difficult to unwind. Taking a quiet moment for yourself before bed can be the difference between a sleepless night and a refreshing night of sleep. Here are four bedtime rituals you can practice at the end of the day to maintain wellness and restore balance to your body and mind.

  1. Aveda Lavender Fleurs Oil

    The sweet, earthy scent of Lavender is one of the most calming aromas. Put a few drops of this oil on your pillow case before bed for a relaxing night of sleep. This oil can also be used in a warm bath or mixed in with a lotion.

  2. Nutmeg Face Mask

    Nutmeg calms the mind and is one of the best remedies for sound sleep. Mix equal parts nutmeg with honey. Use as a face mask and leave on for 7 to 10 minutes and then remove. Not only does this mask smell good and relax the senses, it also has hydrating and protecting properties for the skin.

  3. Unplug Yourself

    Studies have shown that you should turn off your electronics at least 20 minutes before bed. The blue light produced by electronics is stimulating to the brain and tricks your brain into thinking it is still daytime. A helpful tip is to try to avoid using your phone as an alarm. This might be hard, but it helps avoid middle of the night Facebook sessions and receiving late night texts or calls.

  4. Practice Reflection

    It is easy for anxiety to get in the way of a restful night of sleep. The practice of reflection at the end of the day can help clear your mind and help you let go of any stressful events that occurred during your day. If you keep a journal or just give yourself a few quiet moments to reflect, it can be so important for both your body and your mind.
