Want to know our answer to a great night’s sleep?

We can’t always give those we love the TLC they deserve, so we’ve created our Seaweed Sleep Box to be the ideal treat for them (or you!) to enjoy this winter.

Sleep is critical for a healthy immune system, and we all know how much better we feel (and look!) after a good night’s kip – it’s called beauty sleep for a reason!

Our sleep patterns can be affected by countless factors, many of which are out of our control. Whether you’re dealing with stress at work, fluctuating hormones, anxiety or restless legs syndrome, this little restful and relaxing bundle will aid you or a loved one into sound slumber. 

Here are Team Seaweed’s top go to solutions for a good night’s sleep, in this beautiful bedtime box…

WelleCo Sleep Welle Calming Tea – made from lemon balm, skullcap, valerian root and passionflower, this gentle but incredibly powerful mix helps to calm, relax and ease into a restful sleep. As well as tasting delicate and delicious, a cup of this as part of our bedtime routine helps us to switch off and slow down – it smells wonderful too! Best enjoyed with a good book / bath / moment of stillness of course!

Wild Nutrition Ashwagandha Plus – According to The Sleep Foundation, ashwagandha can help you fall asleep faster, spend more time asleep and experience a better quality of sleep too. After trying all of the options out there, this offering was heads and shoulders above the rest and both Emma and Melanie take it every night to benefit from its calming effects. Our pick is made with KSM-66 ashwagandha, which is the most potent and bioavailable available, making it super easy to be absorbed into the bloodstream. It also includes a dose of magnesium which, as well as being a well respected natural sleep aid, has been shown in recent studies to be helpful in the relief of restless legs syndrome. A couple of capsules taken with your tea ticks all the boxes, it can also help with reducing anxiety and depression too. 

Wildheart Organics Meditate Candle – Our sense of smell changes throughout the day, and is at its most powerful around 9pm. Rid your home of the last aromas of dinner and surround yourself in the transformative scents of aromatic frankincense, grounding vetiver and the prized ayurvedic jasmine attar, by burning this candle before bed. These essential oils, handcrafted into non toxic candles in an eco studio in Edinburgh, help our brains recognise that it is time to slow down and prepare for sleep. This is Seaweed Director and meditation guru Thomas’ favourite candle to burn at the end of the day whilst recharging.

MODM Alpaca Bed Socks – In the middle of the night, chilly feet hinder sleep just as much as an important deadline, and our super soft alpaca bed socks are the ultimate in bedtime luxury. Alpaca wool is antimicrobial, anti-fungal and hypoallergenic, with effective thermoregulatory properties. Made in the UK, these gorgeous thick soled socks keep your toes toasty throughout the night, and are breathable, light and natural.

Each of these little gems are a big warm hug on a cold night, promoting relaxation, mindful breath and the optimum conditions for a restorative night’s rest. 

With a combined value of £94.50, our bedtime box is beautifully packaged and comes with a 10% discount – grab yours today for just £85!

 

A couple of tips direct from Seaweed HQ for a dreamy sleep…

A hot drink before bed is soothing for body and soul – if you’re not into tea, try cacao. It contains both serotonin and tryptophan, which promotes better sleep. Our raw cacao made with a milk of your choice and sweetened with SugaVida ensures no nighttime sugar spikes and can be enjoyed by the whole family, our mini Seaweeders love it! Our cacao and collagen made with hot water or as above is also a nourishing bedtime treat, with the added benefits of grass fed collagen.

After a nice hot bath or shower, spray magnesium oil onto your skin to enjoy the optimum benefits of this phenomenal mineral. Our pick is easily absorbed and odourless, and a super simple way to increase your levels of magnesium just in time for bed. 

Screens off! It is easier said than done, but often after just days of switching devices off a little earlier pre-bedtime, your mind and sleep quality will be better for it. Don’t take phones in the bedroom and turn them off at night, to eliminate or at least reduce your exposure to electric and magnetic fields, which can disturb sleep patterns.

Take a breath. Find what works best for you at the end of the day, to focus inward and be present. We love a good mantra to focus on – try ‘my body is a source of calm, I feel at peace and ready to sleep’. If repeating this quietly to yourself isn’t something you feel comfortable with,  deep breaths, meditating or simply sitting still for a moment all help our bodies unwind and rebalance.

We have a Sleep Support section in our shop, and are always happy to receive emails from customers looking to try a new product or talk all things pure, so feel free to contact us today!

All that’s left to say is sleep tight!
