Holy. Moly. It looks like all I do is travel and work. Well, let me tell you it definitely feels that way to me too. Most of the “grown up” things I should be doing get put off (ahem laundry) especially after I come home from a long weekend of travel. I am notorious for being the work. work. work. travel. travel. travel. work. work. work type. I rarely give myself down time to relax, let alone sleep.
If you’ve ever flipped back and forth from day shift to night shift, you know how hard it is to get some sleep (no matter how stinkin tired you may be). Let’s just say I was desperate for some quality ZZZZZZZZZZZZ’s. I was up for hours….days it seems. I was talking with Shannon, a friend of mine who has four beautiful babies (triplet toddlers+ baby Stella) that she magically manages to get to sleep (most nights). I asked her what she uses to help with sleep. She said she diffuses oils… duh. At this point, I was willing to try anything that wasn’t medication. So I took the leap. I ordered the dang diffuser and the oils I didn’t know anything about.
What I didn’t know, is that it would be the <BEST-DECISION-EVER>. After a long night shift, I picked up our mail including my first package from Young Living. I started by diffusing lavender and cedarwood after a long night shift. Let me tell you… I have NEVER slept so hard. I thought I died. I woke up feeling like a completely different person. 7+ hours of sleep during the day was unheard of for me (not to mention it was a hot summer day in Germany with no air conditioning!). Now I diffuse that same combination that I’ve nicknamed the “sleep cocktail” every night. That’s what made me a believer. So if you’re exhausted and need some sleep or have littles that just WON’T close their eyes, don’t panic… just message me and I’ll lead you to the best sleep of your life. If you don’t want to wait just order your own right here–> Sweet Dreams! I’ll even send you a free Cedarwood because I want YOU to sleep as well as I do!
I’d love to have an extremely large cup of cappuccino and chat with you about it (in person or facetime)…because the only thing I love more than sleep + travel is coffee and espresso!
Sweet Dreams my friends,
ps. I’ve also mixed up a DIY Lavender and Cedarwood linen spray… So EASY! The gorgeous cherry blossom trees above are from my trip to Washington DC. I so WISH I had this sleep cocktail then… when my Jet Lag was OH so Real!
