Introducing our new Sahasrara Collection - perfectly designed to promote a restful and rejuvenating sleep experience. Made with high-quality, and all natural ingredients, our latest range provides the perfect balance between comfort and support to help you drift off into a much-needed peaceful slumber.
Like the rest of our products, our Sahasrara Collection harnesses the power of Reiki, as each and every product is blessed by our Reiki Master, Georgina Hemsley. In this article, we will be taking a closer look at our range of calming Sleep Well products.
Our New Sleep Well Sensorial Balm
Introducing our new Sleep Well Sensorial Balm, which offers superior aromatherapeutic benefits. With delicate and earthy notes, this balm will help you unwind after a long day and lull you into a restful night’s sleep.
We have formulated this balm to include five essential oils, creating a delightful blend. In our balm, you will notice notes of Cedarwood, Lavender, Patchouli, Jasmine, Rose Geranium and Chamomile. Each balm has 75% of organic ingredients, and is natural, vegan, cruelty-free, and sustainable.
To use simply apply to pulse points, chest & feet, massaging gently. We also advise Inviting our Sleep Well Sensorial Balm to your nose and breathing in deeply to calm and relax both your mind & body. You can also apply it to dry areas of skin for some TLC. For best results use in conjunction with the Sahasrara Collection.
The Skin Benefits Of Our Sleep Well Sensorial Balm
As well as helping you fall asleep at night, our Sleep Well Sensorial Balm has many skin benefits. For example, our balm naturally has Vitamin E present. This vitamin is an antioxidant which works to protect your body against free radicals. Vitamin E also helps the skin to stay healthy as it can stimulate circulation and boost collagen production, soothe irritation and balance excess oil production.
As well as Vitamin E, the Rose Geranium oil we use also harbours its own healing properties. Rose Geranium oil can rejuvenate the complexion and is extremely effective against soothing dry skin. Rose Geranium oil helps to balance your sebum, which makes it extremely useful for skin that tends to be very oily or dry.
Chamomile can also be beneficial for all skin types. Chamomile works as an anti-inflammatory, which can soothe sensitive skin types. Also Chamomile contains antioxidants, which include polyphenols and phytochemicals. As well as Chamomile, the Candelilla Wax used in our Sleep Well Sensorial Balm creates a barrier agent for your skin, which prevents moisture loss in the long run. The Candelilla Wax hydrates and soothes your skin, whilst also being rich in Vitamin A.
Our New Sleep Well Facial Oil
Our new Sahasarara Collection wouldn’t be complete without a facial oil you can apply to help you drift off in the evening. Our calming sensorial oil blend will not only allow you to have a full night of peaceful rest, but also, nourish and restore your skin.
Boasting a sweet, delicate and soothing aroma, our Sleep Well Facial Oil will instill a superior level of relaxation and give you a much deeper night’s sleep. With a calming mix of Lavender, Sandalwood, Bergamot and Sweet Almond, our Sleep Well Facial Oil will have you feeling at ease in no time. To use our Sleep Well Facial Oil you should warm a small amount onto fingertips, inhale the calming scent. Massage to a cleansed face & neck in the evening, before or in place of moisturising.
The Skin Benefits Of Our New Sleep Well Facial Oil
With our Sleep Well Facial Oil, we have also included Safflower oil, which has been proven to enhance your skin’s texture, appearance and quality. This specific type of oil provides a non-greasy lightweight texture, which is suitable for all skin types. High in linoleic acid, the oil is directly extracted from a Safflower seed. We have included this delightful oil as it helps to combat blemishes,and promotes a much stronger skin barrier. The oil can also assist in maintaining a plump and hydrated appearance as well.
Another key oil that has been included in our Sleep Well Facial Oil is Evening Primrose Oil. Rose comes with many benefits, including its emollient properties, which can soften and smooth the skin. Rich in omega-6 fatty acids, linoleic acid and gamma-linolenic acid, the Evening Primrose present will help improve firmness and elasticity.
We also choose sandalwood oil as well, not just for the delightful smell, but also because it’s perfect for supporting the structure of your skin cells. Containing plenty of antioxidants, Sandalwood can reduce the dryness of your skin and replenish the moisture, improving elasticity and your overall complexion.
Sweet Almond Oil is also included as it is high in both Vitamin A & E. Sweet Almond Oil will quickly be absorbed into your skin and works as a powerful moisturiser. This highly emollient addition will help to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss in your skin, whilst also improving on both the complexion and skin tone.
Finally, we also blended Rosehip Oil as it quickly penetrates and delivers its fatty acid content to the deeper layers of the skin. Rosehip oil also contains linoleic and linolenic acids. These fatty acids help to reinforce the skin cell walls, which help lock in moisture and prevent water loss. This natural exfoliant, will help your skin to shed dead cells, thus reducing dullness, and expedites the production of new skin cells to reveal a glowing and more even-toned complexion. It contains vitamins A and C, which expedite skin cell turnover and encourage collagen production.

Our Sleep Well Pillow Mist is a sensorial blend of dreamy essential oils, which will help your mind and body prepare for a night of good rest. Our Sleep Well Pillow Mist is expertly blended for an earthy, sweet and woody aroma which will allow you to fully relax, feel calm and de-stress.

To use our Sleep Well Pillow Mist, simply shake well before use, then spritz liberally on to pillow, bedding, clothing or use within the surrounding atmosphere as part of your sleep routine. You can also use it throughout the day to help relax, de-stress & calm. For best results use in conjunction with the Sahasrara Collection. Much like all our Sahasrara Collection, our Sleep Well Pillow Mist is made with organic & natural ingredients, is 100% vegan, and cruelty-free.
Essential Oils Sleep
There are many essential oils which can promote a feeling of calm, which will help you drift off into a restful night’s sleep. Once you inhale an essential oil, the molecules will attach themselves to the olfactory bulb of your nose. But not only this, but the powerful sleeping properties that come with certain essential oils come in part from how closely scent can be linked to our triggers, emotions and memories.
For example, lavender is extremely popular when it comes to needing a natural sedative, because the scent is often related to feelings of calmness, relaxation and unwinding. So, why have we chosen these specific ingredients for our Sahasarara Collection?
Cedarwood Essential Oil for Sleep
Cedarwood has been known for its sedative qualities, as well as its ability to soothe and calm. Cedarwood can actually help trigger the happy hormone serotonin, which will then convert to melatonin, otherwise known as the ‘sleepy hormone’. Cedarwood will help slow your heart rate and breathing, allowing the body to fully relax and drift into a much-needed night of rest.
Lavender’s Relaxing Properties
Lavender is best known for its ability to improve the quality of sleep, as well as promoting a natural way to wind down and fully relax. Lavender can be used to prepare both your mind and body for a restful night’s sleep. Much like Cedarwood, Lavender has calming and soothing properties which help alleviate anxiety and stress - plus, it smells amazing!
How Can Patchouli Help You Fall Asleep?
The Cablin species of patchouli in particular has very strong therapeutic properties which can promote a better quality and longer-lasting sleep. It can also provide a much-needed feeling of relaxation and ease any overwhelming feelings of stress and anxiety.
Jasmine & It’s Sleep Qualites
Jasmine can specifically help with insomnia, as well as promote the lowering of your heart rate helping your body to prepare for entering a restful state. If you suffer from restless sleep, then Jasmine is the perfect addition to your bedtime routine. It can produce a calming effect that acts as a natural sedative. Also, Jasmine will calm your mind, relax your muscles and ease stress.
How Can Rose Geranium Help You Fall Asleep?
As well as offering a light and delicate smell to our blend, Rose Geranium will also balance your body and mind. By gently putting yourself into a relaxed mood, you will feel at peace with the addition of this ingredient in our Sleep Well Sensorial Balm.
The Benefits Of Chamomile On Sleep
For years, Chamomile has been used as a sleep and relaxation aid. Chamomile has been known to calm your nervous system, creating a more relaxed body and mind. In most Chamomile products, including tea, there is naturally a mild sedative effect which is perfect inducing sleep. Not only does Chamomile help you fall asleep, but it also supports you whilst you snooze. Chamomile can help to improve sleep quality, so you will wake up feeling much more rested and refreshed.
Why Bergamont Is Brilliant For Bedtime
Unlike other citrus oils, which can be energising, Bergamot is calming, and can reduce stress and anxiety. Much like the other essential oils we have used, Bergamont possesses sedative qualities which can slow the heart rate down and lower your blood pressure.
How Sandalwood Essential Oil Promotes A Restful State
Sandalwood has been known to have a sedative effect which will encourage better night’s rest and increase the amount of non-REM sleep you will experience. Not only can it promote a restful state, but it can also help to manage the symptoms of anxiety and insomnia.
