It’s not often I find the time to just sit and do nothing, but when the opportunity does arise you’ll find me in PJs.
As the days get shorter and the nights get longer the time at which I put my pyjamas on gets earlier and earlier ….. and when they’re as soft and comfy as the Margie cotton flannel checked pyjamas from Baukjen who can blame me?!
If the kid’s sporting fixtures don’t call for an early start at the weekend then having a few extra hours of ‘go slow’ time is a bonus! A very large cup of coffee or a rather indulgent mug of hot chocolate is a must on a Saturday or Sunday morning … especially when cream and marshmallows are involved!
These days pyjamas aren’t just something I sleep in … A ‘PJ day’ in our house is definitely one of the best kind of days (they just don’t happen often enough for my liking!).
With life the way it is these days, switching off and trying to relax isn’t always easy. Anything that can help calm your mind or help you to unwind is always good idea! Cosy PJs, softer-than-soft slippers and heavenly scented aromatherapy candles sound like a pretty good combination to me.
The benefits of aromatherapy are well known, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, agitation and even improving our sleep. At a time when life has become somewhat stressful and anxious for all of us, ensuring a good nights sleep is imperative! It’s beneficial to our overall health and mental well being.
I’ve recently been trying some aromatherapy products from Kiss The Moon, a Yorkshire based company who’s main aim is to ensure their products deliver a good nights sleep to all that use them. The brand was founded by Jo Foster. It was bred from her need to get a good nights sleep and counter the effects of living a life filled with deadlines!
Kiss The Moon are based in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. In April 2019 the first ‘Kiss The Moon’ store was opened in Richmond, Yorkshire. Their wonderful selection of products (available online and instore) range from night time skincare, bath and body oils and home fragrance, all with one aim – to provide a beautiful night’s sleep. All ‘Kiss the Moon’ products are made using only natural ingredients which includes their pure essential oils, with nothing artificial added!
You can’t help but notice the stylish packaging that each product comes in. Each is tied with a ‘sleep beautifully’ ribbon. As soon as you untie the ribbon the gorgeous aroma greets you!
You’ll have to take my word for it when I say they smell absolutely heavenly!
Their range of aromatherapy candles help to prepare you and your room for a good nights sleep. The Dream candle contains a beautiful blend of relaxing lavender with a fresh twist of bergamot. As the candle flickers, it’s the aroma of these deeply relaxing essential oils that help you to unwind, whether it’s during the day or later into the evening.
Their range of sleep balms focus on calming the mind, allowing you to drift peacefully off to sleep. By applying a small amount of the balm on to your pulse points, even the most overactive of minds will be calmed. I’ve been using the Calm balm which is a blend of Jasmine and Chamomile essential oils and I can definitely say it helps me drift off peacefully every night.
‘Kiss The Moon’ have recently launched their Christmas Shop and it is full of wonderful gift ideas, perfect as a gift for someone in need of some TLC or simply a good night’s sleep. With gifts starting from as little as £5 they make great stocking fillers ranging up to more luxurious filled gift boxes . If there was ever a year when gifts that guarantee a good night’s sleep and a calm mind are needed then 2020 is that year!
