Lavender is quite possibly the most well-known and popular essential oil in the world. It’s great for reducing pain and inflammation, an excellent addition to any skin-care routine, and is one of the most relaxing oils used in aromatherapy.

Today we’re going to show you how to sleep better by using this amazing oil, which can be found in our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist!

Wind down for the evening with meditation

Pair deep breathing meditation exercises with gentle yoga poses to help calm your mind after a long day. Use a foam roller to stretch sore muscles. When you’re finished, make sure to clean your yoga mat so it’s free of bacteria. Our Eucalyptus + Lavender Yoga Mat cleaner is perfect for this! See this blog post for our favorite meditation tips.

Turn your shower into a steamy sauna

There’s nothing better than taking a long, hot shower at the end of a stressful day! While the water gets warm and begins to steam up the bathroom, remove your makeup or wash your face. Then spritz some of our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist into your shower, step in, and relax.

Hydrate and prepare for bed

For a spa-like experience, put on a fluffy robe after your shower and fill up a glass with some iced cucumber water.

Turn off your electronic devices and put them away. The blue light from our phones, TVs, and tablets can delay the release of melatonin (the chemical that helps make us tired) in our bodies. Make sure to power down your devices at least half an hour before bedtime.

Dim the lights, turn up the air (the suggested bedroom temperature should be between 60-67 degrees for optimal sleep) and choose some soft pajamas to sleep in.

Get sleepy and wind down slowly

Lightly spray your sheets and pillows with some of our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist for a relaxing scent. Lavender’s unique, sedative properties will help you gradually get sleepier as you breathe deeply. Not ready to fall asleep just yet? Pull out that book you’ve been meaning to finish and read a chapter or two, write in a gratitude journal, or spend some time talking to your partner about your day.
