I love sleep and I have a recommendation on how to get more!
I am sure that the majority of you love sleep as much as I do. Sleep is one of the body’s most essential and basic requirements for survival and yet it seems to be one of the first things to give when we have busy and hectic lives. Everyone can appreciate how great they feel after a good night’s sleep – energised and ready to go compared with the opposite when they have very little or a disturbed night. We fill our diaries and calendars with appointments and commitments which we stick to but perhaps we need to start protecting our sleep time from our ever busy schedules?
Since moving to the United States we have adopted an earlier bedtime. Culturally the people here in the South seem to go to bed much earlier than we did back in England because they seem to get up earlier too! It has been a good habit to get into and I’ve had a lot fewer mornings where the first thought through my head is “How long is it until I can get back in this bed?” The biggest thing to disturb our night’s sleep here is thunderstorms and severe weather. Severe weather is code for tornadoes! The thunderstorms are so loud it cannot fail but to wake up the house as the walls are shaking with the huge volumes of the crashes and roars of thunder but then come the tornado warnings. Twice in 18 months we have needed to seek shelter in the cupboard under the stairs when our weatherman on the television tells us to take shelter at just after midnight. We look forward to the tornado season of Spring being over each year. It gets a little tiring when there are multiple nights of storms.
The National Sleep Foundation advises that having a routine for bedtime is key to having a good night’s sleep. I completely agree and having calming routine for bedtime has always helped both me and my girls. We’ve had our fair share of bedtime dramas over the years but a few years ago I found a product that changed bedtime for me and my children!
Neom Organics London is a company which believes that their range of 100% natural fragrances and organic ingredients provide ‘true therapeutic benefits to relieve stress, calm and relax, aid sleep, boost your energy or lift your mood.’ The Neom product which we cannot do without in our home is the Perfect Night’s Sleep Pillow Mist. A few spritzes on your pillow creates a wonderfully therapeutic scent of English lavender, sweet basil and jasmine. Breathing in the natural fragrances helps me feel so sleepy that I will drift off into a natural sleep effortlessly. My youngest daughter Kate renamed the pillow mist ‘Sleepy Spray’ so that is what we call it to this day! The pillow mist retails in the UK for £20 and in the US for $14. We started using the pillow spray on Kate’s pillow at bedtime when she was having trouble getting to sleep. It worked like magic and I don’t need to tell parents what precious thing it is to get your children in bed and asleep quickly. This worked for us and years on Kate still uses this as part of her nightly bedtime routine. If I wake up in the night and cannot get back to sleep a few sprites of the spray help me relax enough to get back to my dreams.
Neom have a whole range of Scent to Sleep products which when used together create a bedtime routine. One of my other favourites is the Neom Organics Tranquility scented candle. The essential oils in the candle when lit for 2 hours before bed aid peaceful and restful sleep.
Neom are very excited to be launching their #NeomBigSleep on the 28th September this year. They describe it as the chance to achieve a perfect night’s sleep! How tempting does that sound? If you would like to talk to Neom’s sleep experts they can help devise a sleep routine for you, offer advice on how to create a stress free evening and even tips on how to sleep soundly. I think that we all deserve to to be able to achieve all the above and Neom will help you get that great night’s sleep you’re so in need of. From the 5th September 2017 the link www.neomorganics.com/sleeptember will become live for you to register for the #NeomBigSleep.
Right now I would urge you to check out all their fabulous Scent to Sleep products on their website. There’s even free standard UK delivery on orders over £40 and there are often great bundle offers and special deals. Even better if you can get to one of the Neom Organics stores in Leeds, Wimbledon or Kings Road, Chelsea you will be in for a beautiful experience in a haven of calm and incredible scents. I have always found the staff to be super friendly and they have an amazing knowledge and enthusiasm for their products. They will help find the right product for whatever need you have.
There will be a fabulous offer on the Perfect Nights Sleep 3 Step Programme which includes three favourite Scent to Sleep products in a beautifully packaged box. The kit is worth £65 and will be retailing for the special offer price of £50 and will be available to purchase from the 1st September.
For my US readers Neom will ship to the USA and they also have a stockist called http://beautyhabit.com/. The pillow mist retails at only $14 which I consider a great price for a product that works wonders.
