Evening rituals with House Babylon
To us, the hours leading up to bedtime are sacred. Having a healthy evening routine means your body begins slowing down and preparing for a restorative night’s sleep.
We’ve teamed up with luxury British bedding brand, House Babylon, to share our guide to the perfect evening wind down. By shifting our focus to those precious hours before bed, we can take the pressure off sleep itself and begin to enjoy the process of easing into slumber.
Start by running yourself a hot bath with APOTHEM UNPLUG CBD Bath Salts. The Epsom salts in this botanical blend help to act as a mild sedative to help prepare the body for a restful night. Light House Babylon Palmyra candle, letting the warm, woody aroma of fresh cypress and cedarwood fuse with the eucalyptus of the bath salts.
After a nice, long soak step into your House Babylon bathrobe. Crafted from organic Turkish cotton and Oeko-Tex certified to reassure you it’s fully free of any harmful chemicals. Ultra-fluffy and super absorbent thanks to the long cotton fibres, this terrycloth bathrobe is the ultimate post-bathe treat.
Before getting into bed, reach for your LIGHTS OUT CBD Oil Drops, taking around 4 to 5 drops, and leaving them under your tongue for 60 seconds. Formulated with the highest quality pure CBD, soothing L-Theanine, calming Chamomile and regulating 5-HTP these botanical drops are designed to calm the mind and release tension. Wrapped up with the natural flavours of vanilla and caramel, these CBD drops will ease you into your bedtime routine and enable a more restorative night’s sleep.
Pop on some chilled music as you start to settle down. When we listen to music at bedtime, our bodies reduce the levels of stress hormone cortisol and release more of the ‘feel-good’ hormone, dopamine. Music can also calm parts of the autonomic nervous system, slowing breathing and lowering our heart rate - essentially preparing us for sleep. Weightless by Marconi Union is a great place to start and is scientifically proven to help you relax having been especially developed with sound therapists.
