Work, school, sleep, repeat: October's been a slog, to say the least, and between working OT on a crazy project and doing homework for my Illustrator class, I've been logging long, hermit-like hours in front of the computer. Throw a couple bouts of illness into the mix, and it's no wonder I've been suffering from bouts of insomnia. Luckily, as I noted on Instagram a couple weeks ago, Tata Harper Aromatic Bedtime Treatment ($67 at BeautyMark) has been a godsend.
Skeptical that aromatherapy can help that much? So was I, but in the 2 months I've used Tata Harper's all-natural blend of mandarin, melissa oil, clary sage, and lavender, it's helped soothe my racing mind and relieve lingering tension before bedtime. I'm a light sleeper at best and suffer frequent bouts of insomnia. But with Tata Harper Aromatic Bedtime Treatment, I fall into deep sleep faster and stay in it, and I wake up feeling much more rested and mentally refreshed.
Right before bed, I swipe the stainless steel roll-on on my temples, the pulse points on my neck, right under my nose, my palms, and the inside of my wrists. Then I rub my palms together and take 10 deep, slow breaths, inhaling and exhaling to the count of 7 each time. The tension melts away with each breath as the aromatherapy treatment envelops my senses, creating a sanctuary of scent.
The Tata Harper Aromatic Bedtime Treatment also scores points for its divine scent (so good that some fans wear it as a perfume), all-natural formula, and elegant, ultra-portable packaging. At the end of the day though, what matters most to me is that it really helps me sleep. The price is a touch high and there's only enough product in one vial to last about 2.5 months of nightly use, which is a downer. But at times like these, a good night's sleep is priceless and I am convinced this product is worth every penny I paid.
On that note, sorry for being MIA from the blog this month! We'll be back to regularly scheduled programming next week, promise.
