Do you have problems sleeping? 70 million Americans have sleep disorders and millions more just don’t get enough sleep. I’m lucky because so far, I don’t have any problems getting to sleep, however, my husband does. He has been an insomniac for years and even when he gets to sleep, he wakes up repeatedly. So, I’ve been trying to establish a “bedtime” ritual for him where I wean him away from the TV an hour before he goes to bed, give him chamomile tea, and surround him with sleep-inducing essential oils.
I came across the Essence De Valli sleep kit a while ago, but recently gave it a road test. So far so good – my husband has reported that he feels a LOT more relaxed. It’s great to have found a kit that ticks all of my essential oil boxes -so, let me tell you about it: Valerie Bennis is a certified aromatherapist, who had created a synergistic blend of specific essential oils to help ease you into a restful sleep. You get 4 products: a balm, a mist, a massage oil and a bath oil. You can use all or some of them.
On a night where you really have time to pamper yourself or your partner, do the whole shebang – run a bath, give yourself or him/her a massage, mist your bedroom and use your balm. On a night where you haven’t got time, simple use a couple of the products: I like to mist our pillows & sheets, and then apply the balm to my husband’s pulse points.
If you have trouble sleeping away from home, this kit is a great idea to pop into your suitcase. It’s also great for a college student away from home for the first time.
