The vitruvi Evening Rituals Kit has so many uses, but I definitely have some favourites. The kit comes complete with a bottle of Lavender Essential Oil, a bottle of Frankincense Essential Oil, a bottle of Dusk Essential Oil Blend, a spray bottle of Sleep Mist, and a Still Roll-On.
I like to add Lavender Essential Oil or Dusk (a blend of Lavender, Ho Wood, Frankincense, and Eucalyptus essential oils) to my diffuser at night to fill the room with a sweet, relaxed aroma before climbing into bed. I often keep the diffuser running long after I fall asleep; I love the fact that it has an automatic shut-off.
For my body, I enjoy spritzing Sleep Mist on my sheets or skin before bed; adding a few drops of Dusk to a warm bath is also amazing for relaxing the senses and relieving tense muscles.
In terms of skincare, a great night cream that I like to concoct myself is to take a quarter-cup of organic coconut oil and a quarter-cup of shea butter, and then add in 10 drops of Frankincense, 10 drops of Lavender, and 10 drops of Lemon Essential Oil. Whip it together in a small jar, and viola: enjoy an all-natural evening face cream. It smells amazing and is such a healthy treatment for the skin.
Overall, Lavender is my absolute favourite essential oil because it’s a bit like a Swiss Army Knife: it has so many uses! I love to diffuse it by itself, rub a little on my temples or inhale it when I’m suffering from a bad headache, and dab it on burns to relieve pain—the list goes on. If you struggle with insomnia, definitely give this amazing oil a try.
Oh, and don’t forget to have sweet dreams.
