This $50 Kit Provides Everything You Need for a Perfect Night's Sleep
We all yearn for a deeper and more restful night's sleep. The goal is to go to bed at night, fall asleep instantly, and stay asleep until our alarm sounds in the morning. Then we immediately sit up, smile, stretch, and go about our day. The reality, though, sometimes goes more like this: We go to bed, toss and turn for a while, fall asleep, wake up to get water, go back to sleep, hear our alarm go off, hit snooze, hit snooze again, hit snooze one more time, stagger out of bed, and make coffee. Whatever we can do to limit that second scenario from happening is something worth doing. And that includes indulging in new products that are designed to improve our sleep experience—whether that's new sheets, aromatherapy oils, or something similar.
The newest sleep-inducing product that's surfaced on our radar isn't a product at all—it's five products packaged together in a single kit. Each one works in its own special way to encourage deep and restful sleep.
Aromatherapy Associates Sleep and Recover Collection ($83)($49)
The kit includes five products, so there are consequently five steps to complete before heading to bed. First, start with the Deep Relax Bath & Shower Gel. Pour two capfuls into your hands and rub onto your torso. Then, step into a steamy bath or shower and let the aromatherapy work its magic. Next, towel off and use the De-Stressing Muscle Gel on any parts of your body where you feel sore or uncomfortable. Follow that up with the kit's rose body moisturizer before applying the Deep Relax face oil to your face and neck. Finally, pick up the aromatherapeutic rollerball and apply to pulse points for an extra-calming effect. That's it. It will take all of 15 minutes to feel de-stressed and calm from an otherwise crazy day.
The kit is basically a convenient and travel-size way to incorporate a Hygge (or a feeling of comfort, coziness, and happiness) bedtime practice into your nightly routine. If you feel calm and relaxed before you even get into bed, then chances are that you'll fall (and stay) asleep much easier.
This Sleep & Recover Kit retails for $50, but there's also a Sleep & Restore Kit ($58), which has antiaging skin products versus the aforementioned relaxing and moisturizing products. You can count us in for both, as we're always looking for easy ways to improve our nightly routine.
