Over the past couple of years, it seems that the world as we once knew it has completely changed and so many of us are finding it difficult to wind down for the evening.
We are all living through times and some people now call this ‘Coronasomnia’, highlighting the connection between the pandemic and sleeplessness.
We all need sleep to be able to function properly, some more than others, I personally need 8 hours and if not, I am very grumpy.
Many people buy CBD for their bedtime routine, and this is why we have put together our CBD Sleep Kit.
CBD for sleep can help but we believe you get the full benefits when you include some wonderful additional herbs and essential oils and start to create a calming bedtime routine.
Our CBD sleep kit is made up of four products:
- Full spectrum CBD oil
- CBD warming body oil
- CBD calming tea
- Eye mask
By using all 4 in conjunction with each other, you are setting yourself up for a really good CBD fuelled night’s sleep.
For anyone purchasing our CBD sleep kit, this is what we would recommend:
CBD oil drops
Depending on how many CBD drops you take a day we would suggest you take a couple of drops in the morning and a couple of drops in the evening. In the CBD sleep kit, you get a full spectrum of 5% CBD oil.
CBD calming tea
CBD tea is one of our hero CBD products, it is the most repeated order throughout our whole range. The CBD tea also includes some of the following tranquil herbs:
We all know how magical CBD can be, so imagine once blended with all of these soothing ingredients!
We would recommend that you make yourself a cup of this calming tea early evening. This CBD tea is a loose tea so you will a strainer, diffuser, or a teapot to make up. Then sit back and enjoy. If you want you can have a couple of cups of CBD tea, but we would just stick with one cup for the first few days.
Our CBD tea does taste lovely, but if you want to add something else you can, some people add honey or extra lemon.
CBD body oil
Our CBD body oil has been created so you can use it in the bath or apply it straight to your body.
For the full effect of this CBD body oil, we would start by adding some to a bath and have a relaxing soak and let the CBD oil and essential oils sink into your skin.
This CBD body oil also contains warming Clove, Black pepper, and Camphor. Soothing Lavender and Arnica. Plus, Wheatgerm and Lemongrass.
All of these wonderful ingredients have so many benefits which is why the CBD body oil is such a treat and perfect for the CBD sleep kit.
When you get ready for bed, rub some of the CBD body oil into your palms and then rub all around the back of your neck, around your shoulder and chest.
Then apply some to your tummy and thighs, you won’t need a lot as a little of this CBD body oil goes a long way.
Then finally, rub some of the CBD body oil into the soles of your feet. This really does make a difference and is our favourite part to do! You will soon realise why this oil is in our CBD sleep kit.
By now you should start to feel relaxed and enjoy the calming scents of these soothing essential oils – they are divine.
Once you are in bed and ready to sleep, pop your sleep mask on and drift off and enjoy some sweet dreams!
We have covered everything that is in our CBD sleep kit and how to get the most out of it.
Below we have put together 5 additional tips for improving your night-time routine.
5 tips for a better night’s sleep
Write a to-do list for the next day
Do this as part of your evening routine and include things you’re trying to figure out and some ideas for how you’ll try to address them. This really does help if you go to bed and have a noisy mind and so many things going around in your head.
Use a relaxing body oil
Take some time to massage into your legs, shoulders, and arms. Part of CBD sleep kits is a wonderful relaxing and warming CBD body oil which has Lavender, Clove, and Black pepper in it
Learn to relax
With practice, you can learn to trigger your body’s relaxation response. Teaching yourself some simple relaxation techniques can help you wind down and de-stress. One of our favourites is an old technique that they apparently use in the army… or so we are told! Once in bed – focus on your breathing, long breaths in and out, then imagine you are going to relax every piece of your body! Starting with the top of your – imagine you are relaxing your skull. Then slowly work down – temples, eyes, mouth, jaw, be mindful and focus on all these areas relaxing, and let your mouth gently drop open. When you get to your shoulders – really push them down and move your hands gently to ensure there is no tension there. Simply follow this all the way down to your feet and hopefully by the time you give your toes a gentle wiggle you should be asleep!
Go to bed and wake up at the same time. Every evening, relax at least 1 hour before bed – for example, take a bath or read a book and have a cup of our CBD tea.
Make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet – use thick curtains, blinds, and an eye mask (from our CBD sleep kit). Also make sure your mattress, pillows and covers are comfortable.
Don’t forget if you are looking for a thoughtful gift, all of our CBD kits make a lovely present.
