Don't lay there counting sheep - spritz and relax! Before retiring to bed, experience a little aromatherapy to aid relaxation. An excellent use of what nature gave us to aid winding down for the night.
Shake bottle then spritz onto pillow and bed linen. Climb into bed, inhale, close your eyes and drift away.
Aqua, Organic Witch Hazel Hydrolate
Organic Essential Oil of Bergamot - Uplifts the spirits, helps lift anxiety, minor stress & depression and just smells great!
Organic Essential Oil of Frankincense - Fairly traded organic resin from a community project in Somaliland. Traditionally used by aromatherapists to clear morbid conditions and grubby catarrh. The resin has been long used in churches and rituals as it causes the diaphragm to drop and so slows down and deepens the breathing. Often considered to be protective and clears negativity.
Organic Essential Oil of Blood Orange - Fairly traded peel from a community project in Spain. More intensely sweet & fragrant than orange essential oil. A gentle sedative that can release emotional states of tension as well as some hormonal changes. It is the most anti depressant of all the citrus oils.
Organic Essential Oil of Lavender - Angustifolia variety, flowers from France harvested at high altitudes. When lavender is grown at over 1400 meters, the plant produces more esters. If the oil is also distilled at high altitude, there is a lower air pressure so a lower temperature can be used & therefore more of the very volatile chemicals come through from the plant to the oil. It is more than worth all the effort as this is a superb oil.
The list of properties for lavender is one of the longest of all the aromatherapy oils. Here it is used for its calming & relaxing affect working on the emotions.
