TOTEM ROAD TIPS: Create a Sleep Ritual

TOTEM ROAD TIPS: Create a Sleep Ritual

July 24, 2017

What you smell is as important as what you see. Studies have shown that certain smells have calming effects on the body.

Create a night-time ritual of burning candles or essential oils that will prepare your mind for sleep. 

  • Lavender scent can help to induce sleep and reduce anxiety levels. It has been shown to slow down the heart rate, lower blood pressure and levels of stress.
  • Frankincense and myrrh essential oils have been used in combination in rituals since 1500 bc. Now recent investigations confirm that their effect when combined has antimicrobial effects on air-born pathogens. So not only does this smell good but also “cleanses the air” which will make you feel good. Healthier air means a healthier sleep.
