How well we rest and sleep has a profound impact on our focus, productivity, food cravings, digestion and hormone levels.
Needless to say, the uncertainty of the past year has left us both mentally and emotionally drained. That is why this winter is the perfect time to establish a healthy routine that can help us to wind down and refocus on cultivating our inner calm.
We’ve carefully curated our favourite Wellness products to help you make peace a daily practice…
Wellness Organic Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Aromatherapy can be beneficial for sleep and relaxation, and ylang ylang in particular is known for its relaxing effect on the nervous system. Harness the benefits of this floral fragrance by adding a couple of drops to coconut oil, and rubbing it on your arms and chest. Alternatively, place it in a burner or diffuser to calm your mind and uplift your mood.
Wellness Magnesium Biglycinate
Several studies suggest that 50 % of Western populations have a magnesium deficiency. This essential mineral activates the neurotransmitters (brain messengers) that are responsible for calming the body and mind, making it a useful addition to your nightly routine.
Wellness Herbal Chamomile Tea
Taking time for a tea break is an easy and rewarding way to switch off after a stressful day. Chamomile is known for its soothing effects and calming aroma, and is often used as a bedtime ritual to promote a restful night of sleep.
Wellness Lavender Reed Diffuser
Lavender is a well-known floral fragrance revered for its calming properties. Our Lavender Reed Diffuser creates a tranquil atmosphere, filling your home with a relaxing and uplifting aroma. Ready, rest, reset.
Wellness Frozen Ready-to-Eat Meals
Virginia Woolf once said, “One cannot think well, love well or sleep well if one has not dined well.” We could not agree more! Simply pop one of our delicious Wellness Frozen Meals into the oven for a stress-free dinner. From the crisp crust of a chicken pie to a hearty beef lasagna or flavoursome curry, there’s something for the whole family. You can even say you made it yourself…we won’t tell!
Wellness Dark Hot Chocolate
Stay cosy in bed with a good book and a mug of Wellness Dark Hot Chocolate. This cuppa is rich and creamy, and so delectable you won’t want to share! Most sugary foods and drinks disrupt your sleep, but luckily our Dark Hot Chocolate has no added sugar, so it won’t keep you from dozing off into a good night’s rest.
Yours in wellness,
