Who wouldn’t want to have a baby’s sleep every night, falling asleep as soon as you hit the sack, and waking up feeling refreshed and energised? Sounds wonderful, but the reality however is not always like that; in the past months my sleep has been far from perfect. The reasons to that are multiple and mainly have to do with my restless mind, general anxiety and not being able to relax and switch off easily. But I’m not giving up and have decided to try a beautiful new product which I have recently come across, to help me have a good night’s sleep – a “Dream After Dark Pillow Mist” by Kiss the Moon.
I love the look and feel of this new British brand, whose mission is to help us all have a better, more relaxing and rejuvenating night’s sleep. Specialising in night-time beauty this brand uses 100% natural beauty oils to nourish your skin and soul as you sleep. With a beautiful range of natural face oils and bath oils, not only does it leave your skin feel smooth and silky, but your body to feel at peace too.
The range includes four categories of products divided according to the essential oils used: Love (Rose, Frankincense, Palmarosa & Ylang Ylang), Glow (Orange, Geranium, Myrrh & Litsea), Calm (Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang & Sandalwood), and Dream (Lavender, Bergamot, Cedarwood & Roman Chamomile).
Did you know that both sleep and sense of smell are both controlled by the oldest part of our brain? So one of the easiest and most effective ways to help us fall asleep is to surround yourself with a natural scent that makes you feel truly relaxed.
DREAM After Dark Pillow Mist looks and smells gorgeous. I now have a daily routine whereby, every time when I’m ready for the shut-eye, I change into my PJs, pick up my Pillow Mist from the bedside table, and start slowly puffing the liquid mixture into the air around me, onto my pillow and on the bed sheet. The bedroom quickly fills up with a beautiful sweet aroma. What’s more, it now acts as a secondary signal for my brain and I start associating this smell with night time, which helps to relax further.
Lying in my bed, letting go of my thoughts and any tension in my body, every now and then I catch the wonderful aroma which is very soothing.
After Dark Pillow Mist is deeply relaxing with French Lavender – known as nature’s sedative – freshened up with apple scented Roman Chamomile good for easing away aches and pains; soft, citrusy Bergamot to brighten the spirit, balanced with the sweet balsamic notes of Cedarwood, loved for its calming effects.
I also love the fact that Kiss the Moon uses only pure essential oils grown and harvested for their therapeutic benefits and keeping everything 100% natural – no parabens, no harsh chemicals, no artificial perfumes, no compromise. Perfect for a beautiful sleep!
