The Power of Sleep

Author: F&F   Date Posted:2 September 2016 

At Flora & Fauna we have lots of gorgeous products to help with your skin and body but we have two recommendations that we think are the best thing you can do to improve your health and wellness, and they are free.

Drink enough water

We are largely made of water and without water there would be no life on earth. We need it to survive and it helps cleanse, detox, transport nutrients, bodily functions and more. Without it we're stressing our body so help your body and drink enough, at least 8 glasses a day and more if you are exercising.

 

Get enough sleep

My doctor told me recently that I need at least 7 hours of sleep a night. Without it we can suffer chronic sickness. I’ve been averaging much less than that so she didn’t need to tell me twice. Since sleeping more I’ve felt great. And it’s free. I’ve pulled together my top picks to help you into the land of nod and make your sleep a little bit luxurious. It is, after all, our nightly spa treatment, we just don’t appreciate it enough. 

 

1. Soak Society Sleep Wellness Soak 

This relaxing calming wellness soak is full of lavender and chamomile to relax and oatmeal and white clay to moisturise. Use in the bath before bed, or if you don’t have a bath, as a foot bath. In a 250g size which is 5-6 baths or a 100g travel size which is 1-2 baths.
