Natural Living

By Linda Ripoll

When the idea of sleep sounds more like wishful thinking than fact, it’s a good indicator that you’re probably not getting enough of it. Even though many people view a good night’s rest as a luxury, it is actually as important as protecting your skin from the sun or drinking eight ounces of water a day. With the long hours we work and the stressful commutes we endure weekly, it’s no wonder falling asleep seems more like a chore than an act of nature. With the rise of organic and natural beauty and health products, there are now safe alternatives to getting a good night’s rest that doesn’t involve a possible addiction to sleeping pills, or watching late night television into the wee hours of the morning.
 
Sleep, a Bedtime Ritual by Essence of Vali is an all-natural sleep aid that blissfully prepares the mind and the body for a wonderful night’s sleep in mere minutes. The sensual combination of soothing lavender flowers, cedar wood, marjoram leaves and ylang ylang petals releases a calming aroma that envelopes you the second your head hits the pillow.

This wonderfully tranquil collection comes in various applications from massage and bath oils to a soothing mist which all feature the sleep inducing fragrance. My personal favorites are the concentrated drops and the bedtime balm. Every night before bed, I place two drops on the corners of my pillow and delicately spread a thin layer of moisturizing balm under my nose so that I can inhale the peaceful sleep time formula through the night. Within seconds I am drifting off to la la land. This is one beauty ritual I will never get enough of.
