Secret Ingredient - Lavender
I've fallen in love with Lavender... again!
My job takes me to many places. I spend time on the road, hotel rooms, and ultimately terrible sleep patterns ensue.
I know there are many benefits of lavender. I spend a lot of time educating people on this subject. Lavender is almost perfect!
It helps you relax. It really does calm the senses. Gives you a tranquility if you let it.
Lately I've been so wound up. I decided I was going to take my own advice. I need a lavender bath! So my perfect bath is as follows; Lavender bubble bath, lavender bath bomb, 3 ounces of lavender spa bath salts......soak for 20 minutes. I made myself take 8 deep breaths in through my nose, hold, exhale through my mouth (I think I heard this from Dr Oz). Wow! OK, that worked. I felt good.
I slept so soundly. You know, it's been said lavender helps with REM sleep. The sleep where we dream and it's a deep restful sleep. So it's no wonder why I fell into a baby like sleep.....ah lavender.
I'd like to encourage you to fall in love with lavender either for the first time or again as I've done. You won't be sorry.
