How can you ensure a better night’s sleep?
Relaxing and falling into a deep slumber does not come easily to many people.
With warmer nights many people often find it increasingly difficult to drift off to sleep, and throw in the stresses and strains of everyday life and you could have a recipe for a restless night.
However there are many different ways you can hope to have a pleasant night’s slumber.
Relaxation coach Andrew Johnson outlines his top healthy living tips proven to help people to drift off to sleep naturally.
Bringing in relaxation aids such as aromatherapy and herbal oils can help relax the senses, allowing you to find it easier to unwind.
Adding a couple of drops of rosehip oil to your evening bath or keeping a sachet of lavender under your pillow could be brilliant options if you’re struggling to chill out after a busy day.
Alternatively, why not play relaxing music on a low volume to distract your mind from wandering and allow it to slip into a deep sleep.
Adapt your environment
To get a good night’s sleep Mr Johnson recommends making sure your bedroom is the right temperature - ask yourself whether you need to turn the radiator down or perhaps remove a duvet.
He also advised: "Invest in a good pair of blackout blinds," as natural light can prevent people from falling asleep or cause them to wake up too early - especially during the summer months.
Perfect your bedtime routine
Getting a good night’s sleep is about finding a routine that you can stick to. This will mean your body becomes tired at the same time each night.
Before bed, getting into a routine by having an evening bath or reading a couple of chapters can all help you to unwind and signal to your body that it’s time for sleep.
Consider your diet
The relaxation coach suggests that "a hot malt drink or hot glass of milk" before bed can be beneficial, and argues that you should avoid eating things that your stomach finds difficult to digest directly before bed.
Eating is best avoided in the two hours before you head to bed, while you should also steer away from caffeine or sugary foods late at night.

Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
