How often do you wake up feeling un-rested and wishing you could have just one more hour in bed? You're not alone. Many of us feel that they haven't had enough sleep and are yearning to sleep better.
There are many different reasons that you might be having a disturbed sleep, or struggling to get to sleep, such as Hormonal imbalances, stress, diet or lifestyle. Therefore it can be difficult to determine what it is that's not allowing you to enjoy your sleep. Yet having a good night's sleep is so important and has many benefits for your well-being, such as:
- Improved Concentration
- Greater Creativity
- Improved Mood
- Happier Relationships
- Better Fitness
- Reduced Stress
- More Energy

Looking at your phone just before going to sleep is a big no. We're all guilty of it, it's the last thing we look at night and the first thing we pick up in the morning.
Looking at your phone just before going to sleep exposes you to the nasty blue and white light that your device gives off. This light prevents our body from relaxing and our hormones tell our body that we're not ready to sleep. This can also be the reason why you might toss and turn and have an interrupted sleep. So switch off and pick up a book or magazine instead!
Run yourself a warm bath before bed, or spend that little bit longer in the shower. Indulge in your favourite bubbles or soaks and light your favourite candle. Relax, take some slow deep breaths and enjoy the comforting hug of your warm bath.
We love the benefits that Chamomile tea has. It can relax, sooth and warmth the body. Sip on some caffeine free tea an hour before bed, whilst winding down for the evening. Better still, drink from your favourite mug to put a smile on your face. Whether it's one that your best friend gave, or perhaps one that your children decorated for your Birthday.
Half an hour before bed, take your Scentered Sleep Well Therapy Balm and gently apply to your pulse points (neck, wrists or temples). Bring your wrists up towards your nose and take some deep breaths. Exhale and enjoy the natural fragrance of the Lavender, Ylang Ylang and Palmarosa.
Repeat this each night and you'll begin to associate the natural fragrance with going to bed. A little trick that your body will love.

To create the ultimate sleep setting, light your Sleep Well candle before going to sleep. Place in your bathroom whilst having a bath, or on your bedside table whilst reading your book.
Our deeply therapeutic candle relaxes the body, clears the head and quietens the mind, with a sophisticated oriental floral lavender blend of fourteen different essential oils.
Just make sure that you blow out your candle before you go to sleep!
There's nothing more soothing than hearing the voice of your loved one. Snuggle up on the sofa and chat about something your both enjoy. Chatting in confidence with someone may ease any tensions and stresses that you are worried about and can often lift a huge weight off your shoulders. This will allow you to ease into a restful sleep, without the horrible feeling of worry hanging over your shoulders.
Life is so much better when you sleep well!
Keep a lookout as we extended our sleep range over the next few weeks. Trust us, your sleep routine is only going to get better.
