Help Your Kids (or Yourself) to Unwind...

Do your kids ever get overstimulated and have trouble falling asleep at the end of the day? Do you ever have that feeling?

I want to share with you today one of my favorite supplements that was released this year - Unwind. It's part of the KidScents line but adults can benefit from it too. In fact, I'm the one that uses this one in my home! Unwind promotes a calm state and helps with occasional sleeplessness. It also reduces restlessness and eases occasional irritability (hello!! we can all benefit from this!). One of the really cool benefits is that it also helps improve focus and mental clarity the next day...which can be beneficial in the classroom or home. Plus, did you know that a healthy night's sleep helps with your immune system as well? Healthy sleep can help with a healthy body...they go hand in hand.

Unwind features calming ingredients such as L-theanine, 5-HTP and magnesium. As an added calming bonus it also has lavender and roman chamomile essential oils as well.
  • L-theanine: Occurring naturally in green tea, L-theanine helps promote a sense of relaxation while helping ease occasional irritability. It also offers next-day benefits, helping improve focus and mental clarity in the home and the classroom. 
  • 5-HTP: Working synergistically with L-theanine, 5-HTP promotes a calm state and relieves occasional stress.
  • Magnesium: Naturally derived and necessary in over 300 metabolic reactions in the body, magnesium plays a role in defending against occasional sleeplessness and may also bring a sense of calm to your environment.
Unwind can be taken directly from the packet or mixed with juice. I personally love it mixed with orange juice. It can be used on kids aged 4+ and as I've said, it's great for adults as well. I use it whenever I want to achieve an extra deep sleep. Have you tried Unwind yet? Give it a shot and let me know what you think.

DIY Sleepy Blend Roller

This has become one of my favorite combinations before bedtime. I love it so much that I’ve made a blend in a 15ml bottle to keep by my bed to put in my diffuser. If you would rather have the blend as a rollerball – here you go! It’s super easy to make and you’ll just rub it on your feet and wrists before you slip under the sheets. Sweet dreams.

In a 10mL roller bottle blend:
10 drops
Frankincense
10 drops
Bergamot
10 drops
Cedarwood (or Lavender)
fill the remainder with your favorite carrier oil (I recommend fractionated coconut oil or Young Living’s V-6 blend)

Getting a Restful Night's Sleep
Let’s talk about getting a good night’s rest. It’s so important to our bodies. We all know that lack of sleep can make you groggy and cranky.

Many of us struggle with interrupted or light sleep – so what can we do? Let’s talk about a few ways to help you get better, more restful sleep.
