Your bedroom, your sanctuary. The room you will be spending eight to ten hours in each night to rest and recharge. To help you get the best night’s sleep of your life, we’ve put together a few simple steps as well as our edit of top sleep and wellness products that will have you in the Land of Nod in no time.
1. CHOOSE BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL AND BREATHABLE SLEEPWEAR
To aid with the perfect night’s sleep, choose pyjamas that are comfortable and breathable. Papinelle’s latest collection of 100% linen sleepwear, organic cotton loungewear and pure silk women’s pyjamas, available in a variety of PJ sets, nighties and robes, not only feel luxe on the skin but are naturally breathable and hypoallergenic, making them perfect to wear year-round. Signature silk-cotton collections are made from a luxe all-natural fabric that is lightweight and soft to the touch; it’s also breathable, allowing for air circulation, and won’t irritate the skin. The silk component makes it a magic thermoregulator too; it can keep you warm when you’re cold and cool when you’re hot. Shop our all-natural collection of sleep and loungewear now online.
2. INVEST IN SOME DELICIOUS SCENTS
For those well-versed in the art of self-care, lighting incense or a candle at the end of the day is one of the best home rituals to signal the start of some soothing downtime. Shop Australian native incense and sustainably-produced essential oils and fine fragrance candles with layers of warm Manuka honey and milky wax for deliciously aromatic scents to fill your home and sleep sanctuary.
3. DARKEN THE ROOM
The presence of light or sunlight will almost always interfere with the sleeping process because of the way it stimulates your senses. Our pure silk sleep masks are the perfect, natural way to block out light and maximise your beauty sleep. When your brain senses pure darkness, it kicks in the production of melatonin, the chemical of sleep. Think of them as blackout blinds for your eyes.
Or try a scented all-natural eye pillow to place on your eyes after meditation, when going to sleep or after yoga to help with relaxation. Made from all-natural ingredients of Adzuki Beans, Lavender flower, Lavender essential oil and Chamomile.
4. INVEST IN A PURE SILK PILLOWCASE
Thanks to its super-smooth texture, pure silk pillowcases not only keep your skin hydrated while you sleep, they also prevent the dreaded ‘crush-wrinkle’ and wild morning hair. Shop a selection of beautiful boxed mulberry silk pillowcases for the ultimate in bedtime luxury.
During the day, you are likely being bombarded by computers, smartphones and a variety of devices. Each of these types of electronic devices gives off blue waves that stimulate the brain. Leave your phone at the door and rather opt for one of the fabulous novels in our carefully edited sleep library. Couple with a cup of delicious evening wellness tea and end the day with a velvety blend of sweet liquorice, calming chamomile, fresh peppermint and fragrant basil.
