To ensure a good night's sleep, I suggest you start by taking a soak in a hot bath. Adding one of MammaMichal's aromatherapy floral bath salts will give you a spa experience in the comfort of your home and enhance your experience as well as aid in your relaxation - especially if you use our lavender or English Garden floral bath salt. After the bath, pat dry and apply MammaMichal's aromatherapy lavender lotion.

About Lavender and Insomnia: In folklore, pillows were filled with lavender flowers to help the restless fall sleep. There is now scientific evidence to suggest that aromatherapy with lavender may slow the activity of the nervous system, improves sleep quality, promote relaxation, and lift mood in people suffering from sleep disorders. Studies also suggest that massage with essential oils, particularly lavender, may result in improved sleep quality, more stable mood, increased mental capacity, and reduced anxiety. In one recent study, participants who received massage with lavender felt less anxious and more positive than participants who received massage alone. Lavender flowers have also been approved in Germany as a tea for insomnia, restlessness, and nervous stomach irritations.

MammaMichal's aromatherapy Lavender lotion is triple enhanced with lavender: we infuse the oils with organically grown lavender flowers, we use lavender hydrosol and we add certified organic lavender essential oil.

I also recommend you drink a lovely hot Yogi tea bedtime. It incorporates herbs that have been known for centuries as helpful with insomnia and restlessness: valerian, chamomile, passion flower and more.

Finally, add 3-4 drop of lavender *essential oil* onto a tissue and put the tissue underneath your pillow case.

Sweet Dreams!
