Many people do not give enough importance of sleep and the hours needed, but as demonstrated, a good night’s sleep benefits the body in many ways besides being necessary.
A good night’s sleep means sleep for about 8 hours every day and there are a number of tips and tricks to sleep such as taking a bath before sleeping or use of items such as salt lamps Himalaya among others.
NOT JUST A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
As mentioned above, we need 8 hours of sleep every night. The question is how to get those 8 hours of quality sleep. This article covers this topic, focusing on the link between essential oils and good night`s sleep.
The recipe presented in this article uses three essential oils: magnesium, lavender, and chamomile.
Magnesium essential oil
Magnesium essential oil is not exactly an oil, but is called that due to its oily appearance. You can use it both externally and internally. It can relieve digestive problems, depression and anxiety, while also helping you to sleep better. Applying magnesium essential oil on your body will also help you if you’re suffering from magnesium deficiency.
Lavender Essential Oil
If you are looking for a relaxing, soothing herb then look no further than lavender. However, because it is extremely potent it is advisable not to administer this oil on children.
Why Foot Spray?
Foot baths are super-effective detoxes. With bentonite clay and water, for example, a simple foot bath can be prepared wherein you “literally see the toxins coming out of your feet”. Dubious, I know, but after soaking your feet the water turns dark and you feel a lot better. Even if it’s just a “placebo effect” it works quite nicely.
Your feet have the biggest and most pores of any place on your body, making them the perfect place to absorb much needed magnesium and oils which benefit your whole body. Your feet also have connections to the rest of your body – through touching specific points in your feet, you will do wonders for specific parts of your body.
