Created with soothing essential oils, and designed to evoke sensations of comfort, calm, and cleanliness, this pillow mist also has a secret weapon that does more than make you sleepy – its carefully chosen blend intelligently supports the four stages of the sleep cycle to help you not only drift off easier but get more quality sleep so you wake up refreshed and rejuvenated.
Why You Need It
It’s no secret that not getting enough sleep is bad for our health, and yet 1 in 3 of us don’t get enough all-important shut-eye. From a weakened immune system to bad skin, an unhealthy gut, fatigue, low energy, and mood swings – a lack of sleep is the ultimate life disrupter. Our modern lifestyles don’t make it easy – we’re constantly preoccupied with digital devices which inhibit the body’s natural production of melatonin (the sleep hormone), work and home life are more blended and we’ve got more responsibilities than ever making it harder to switch off.
When we don’t get enough sleep, our hormones are thrown out of whack, and because they control how we behave, act and feel, it can throw out gut health off, enhance feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as impair brain function, memory, and productivity. That’s because our normal bodily functions need good quality, long periods of sleep to restore and rejuvenate properly; to grow muscle, repair tissue and synthesis hormones. Physically, emotionally and mentally, we feel weaker, and life is harder. However, with enough sleep, we can thrive, not just survive. Consistent good quality sleep benefits our mental and physical health, keeps our immune system strong, and helps us to maintain a healthy weight. Good health and wellbeing start with sleep, and that’s where Restful Sleep Pillow Mist comes in.
How It Works
The all-natural ingredients in the formula imbue spaces and linens with a serene natural fragrance to help promote a tranquil mind and restful sleep. “The sweet citrus notes of bergamot; the warm, rich woodiness of Amyris and full-bodies fruitness of potent high-altitude lavender combine to create a uniquely sumptuous and somniferous scent,” shares Olverum.
But more than that, each individual ingredient works in synergy with your sleep cycle to support each stage of sleep to maximize sleep quality to its highest level.
When anxiety strikes at night, bergamot oil elevates mood and calms stress during the transition from wakefulness to sleep easing you into a restful slumber. High altitude lavender oil improves sleep quality more effectively than other lavender species, relaxes the body, deepens sleep, and makes it less prone to disturbances, which is common in stage 1 of the sleep cycle when you’re just drifting off but still alert enough that you could be woken easily.
Stage 2 of sleep is supported by geranium oil. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system helping to slow down the heart rate and reduce any bodily tension. Amyris oil soothes stress and deepens sleep into the most crucial stage of sleep for the body to repair itself, heal and recharge the immune system.
Stages 3 and 4 of the sleep cycle are identified as deep sleep. It’s harder for you to be awakened and your body is less responsive to the outside world. This is the most restorative stage of sleep. This is where your body is able to reset and build up energy for the next day. Stage 4 is supported by roman chamomile oil which has natural hypnotic effects which work to maintain and lengthen this important stage of deep, restorative sleep maximizing its benefits for your health and wellbeing.
