Enhance your sleep with a restful night and the power of bath salts and pillow sprays

Updated: Jul 10

Sleep is the cornerstone of health and well-being, yet many of us struggle to get the quality rest we need. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in three adults doesn’t get enough sleep. Improving your sleep can significantly impact your physical and mental health, productivity, and overall quality of life.

1. Create a Relaxing Bedtime Routine

Establishing a consistent bedtime routine can signal to your body that it’s time to wind down. Simple activities like reading a book, taking a warm bath, or practicing relaxation exercises can be incredibly beneficial. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found that engaging in a regular pre-sleep routine can improve sleep quality and duration. Consider incorporating bath salts with soothing ingredients like magnesium chloride, which can relax muscles and promote a sense of calm before bed. Research has shown that magnesium chloride can help reduce stress and improve sleep quality. Our Magnesium Chloride Bath Salts are naturally scented with essential oils and don't give you a 'gritty bottom' either!

2. Optimize Your Sleep Environment

Your bedroom should be a sanctuary for sleep. Keep it cool, dark, and quiet to promote restful slumber. Investing in a comfortable mattress and pillows can make a significant difference. The National Sleep Foundation suggests that the right sleep environment can enhance the quality of your sleep.

3. The Role of Pillow Mists

Pillow mists, often infused with essential oils, can be a game-changer for your sleep routine. Lavender, chamomile, and valerian root are popular choices for their calming properties. Research published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine indicates that lavender oil can improve sleep quality and increase the time spent in deep sleep. Spritzing a light mist on your pillow before bedtime can create a soothing atmosphere, helping you drift off more easily. Our Pillow sprays are perfect for this.

4. Limit Screen Time Before Bed

Exposure to blue light from screens can interfere with your body’s production of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep. Harvard Health Publishing recommends avoiding screens at least an hour before bed. Instead, opt for activities that help you relax and prepare your mind for sleep.

5. Watch Your Diet and Exercise

What you eat and how much you exercise can affect your sleep. Avoid heavy meals, caffeine, and alcohol close to bedtime. Regular physical activity, on the other hand, can help you fall asleep faster and enjoy deeper sleep. A study in the journal Advances in Preventive Medicine highlights the positive correlation between regular exercise and improved sleep quality.

Improving your sleep is an achievable goal with a few mindful changes. From establishing a calming bedtime routine to creating a sleep-friendly environment and incorporating pillow mists, these steps can lead to better, more restful nights. Sweet dreams!
