DIY: Sleep Bath Time Oil

A favourite way to unwind at the end of the day and to decrease stress (while also promoting deep restorative sleep) is a bath.  When I give talks about how we created Vitruvi, I often share the story of how at the beginning when I was still in school and creating the concept for the brand, I would do the website writing and blog articles from my bathtub. I’d prop my laptop on top of the toilet seat and sit in a warm bath after studying for hours in the evening. That bath and the idea of working on my passion project was something that got me through the toughest of days.

A bath oil is a simple way to integrate the benefits of essential oils into your daily routine. Evening baths have continued to become something that I look forward to at the end of a very long hectic day. Even if I can only fit in a 10 minute bath at 12:10am, at least I have a small window to soak my body and take some of the load off. I also find that I sleep much better and wake up much more rejuvenated.

For this recipe I combined some of my favourite relaxation oils. Lavender is one of my favourite bedtime scents and when paired with Cedarwood it helps to ground the body and calm a busy mind. Rosemary is thought to help with memory and believed to help increase memory of dreams when inhaled before bed.
