There are few things more relaxing and regenerative than burrowing into your blankets and pillows and bidding the world adieu. But, for many of us, the experience of a good night’s rest is a luxury that’s rarely experienced.
While sleep is not really required for eternal beings, we’ve conditioned our shared mind to magically produce images as if most of us don’t perform at our peak when we don’t get a certain amount of sleep.
In fact, The American Academy of Sleep Medicine states that most people do not get the recommended 7 hours of sleep every night, which they say can lead to skin issues, as well as emotional and physical health problems. And apparently, a handful of catastrophic disasters were caused by sleep deprivation, including the Exxon Valdez oil spill and the nuclear explosion at Chernobyl. Yikes!
When you get the perception of chronically losing sleep, you may start to experience puffiness around the eyes, fine lines, dark circles and sallow skin which needless to say, is not the look that most of us are going for. Lack of ZZZ’s is also a favorite device of the mind to make effects like forgetfulness, decreased libido, weight gain and regulation of hormones. These unpleasant magical effects are then used to trigger an upswing in the amount of the stress hormone cortisol, which in excess, can seem to break down your very precious collagen stores, thus making the appearance of reduced skin structure and elasticity, which can make your skin seem to age like a peach in the sun.
Have No Fear! You are Magical and Sleepy Blend is Here…
The staggering amount of issues seemingly caused by sleep deprivation is alarming, but not to worry, all is not lost. Your mind is way more powerful than you may have been led to believe.
Just as your mind made the illusion of needing sleep and all of the negative effects that follow from not getting enough, your mind can also use magic to make another scenario. When our founder, Hope Johnson came up with our Sleepy Blend, that’s exactly what she had in mind. This blend is intended to be used like a magic wand to help ease your night-time frustration with an alchemical blend of essential oils that coherently work with you to make the effect of doing your body good from the inside out.
