Sleep and Lavender
by COO, Helen MacIsaac
Fall has begun, and the days are getting shorter. In a few short weeks, in the early hours of Sunday, November 1st, we will reset our clocks to “fall back” an hour, giving us even fewer hours of daylight. But neither one of these inevitable events helps us get a better night’s sleep.
Of the more than 50 million American adults who suffer from lack of sleep, the majority are Silvers. Remember, you are not alone in your quest for more – or better – sleep! Many sleep-deprived members of the HipSilver community prefer natural remedies to this pervasive problem. One of our favorites is lavender, the herb whose oil emits one of the most alluring, dreamy scents in all of nature. We love this Healthline story as it explores four ways to incorporate lavender into your overall health and wellness.
Seafoam Lavender Company and Gardens is a family-owned lavender farm in Nova Scotia that produces a range of superior quality products fresh from their gardens. HipSilver has partnered with them to create a “Relax and Repair” basket of skin and body care treats – along with a lavender tea – to soothe you into a good night’s sleep.
