A wellness lifestyle includes a dedication to pursue relaxing, quality sleep. Many of us stay active, nourish our bodies with healthy food, stimulate our minds by actively learning, and feed our souls by connecting with the people around us.
According to the American Psychological Association, 60% of adults reporting experiencing sleep problems a few nights a week or more. Stress and the inability to relax causes the highest incidences of sleep disturbances.
Integrate Purity Apothecary’s essential oils and aromatherapy products into your nightly sleep protocol. When you inhale an aromatherapy molecule through your nose, it affects the brain through various receptor sites, most notably the limbic system.
The limbic system has a reputation for being the emotional center of the brain. De-stressing through the use of wholesome organic aromatherapy products helps the limbic system relax for a better night’s sleep.
