We offer a range of Pure Essential Oils that can be used in our Oil Burners at bedtime. Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory system, the parts of the body connected to smell, including the nose and the brain.
Oils can be selected and used for their specific healing effects.

  • Relax Me - Notes of ylang-ylang, lavender and geranium work together to create a relaxing blend.
  • Calm Me Down - Notes of chamomile, ylang-ylang and cedarwood nestle together to create a delicate, calming blend.
  • Bed Time - Notes of rose, clary sage and lavender form a restful blend, to help you unwind and prepare for a restful night.

Other ways to help you sleep naturally

The top proven ways to help improve sleep quality from the Healthline are:

  • Reduce blue light exposure from electronic devices in the evenings. The blue light has been shown to keep your brain wired, which isn't good when you’re trying to switch off before bed. Perhaps try to read a book or meditate instead.
  • Don't consume caffeine late in the day - it is proven that caffeine can take anywhere between 6-8 hours to get out of your system.
  • Don't eat too late in the evenings - some studies say you should avoid heavy foods after 6 pm in the evenings to allow your body enough time to digest your food before you go to sleep.
  • Take a relaxing bubble bath or a hot shower before bedtime.

We know most of us are experiencing challenging times at present, so we hope some of the tips in this blog will help you get a few extra hours sleep at nighttime.

Love the Ashleigh & Burwood Team.
