Looking for the perfect addition to your evening relaxation ritual? Or a gift for a loved one in need of some me-time? Look no further – The London Sleep Company’s Bath & Shower Elixir is your sleep saviour. With sleep so strongly linked to your health and immune system, there’s never been a better time to unwind, relax and really feel the health benefits of rest.
We are really proud of our Bath & Shower Elixir – your beautiful violet glass will contain a complex blend of pure botanical oils, expertly formulated with deep, restorative sleep in mind. 100% natural, with nourishing safflower oil and hydrating vitamin E, this luxurious pre-sleep treatment will fill your bath or shower with the wonderful aromas of calming Ylang Ylang, anxiety-soothing Frankincense and grounding Vetivert, bringing tranquillity to your evening ritual.
WHY IT WORKS
Our Bath & Shower Elixir has benefits for your sleep, your mind and your skin.
When it comes to your sleep, it works as well as it does for 3 key reasons – firstly, the complex blend of botanical oils have been specially selected for their sleep-inducing properties.
Secondly, the Elixir is designed to be used during an evening bath or shower. This encourages you to slow down before bed, allowing time to unwind. Simply Including a warm bath or shower in your evening routine helps sleep as it raises and then cools your body to the perfect sleep temperature. Timing here is important – make sure you’re out of the bath about an hour and half before you want to sleep, giving your body enough time to cool to that optimum temperature.
Thirdly, when used as part of a regular routine, your brain will start to associate the fragrance with sleep, sending signals that it’s time to relax and prepare for rest.
And we are so proud to announce that our Bath & Shower Elixir has been awarded Bronze in the Best New Wellness Product category in the Pure Beauty Awards London 2020!
HOW TO USE
Prepare for a relaxing, deep sleep by massaging three full pipettes all over your upper body, before stepping into a warm bath or shower.
To capture the full aromatherapy benefits, cup your hands to your face & inhale deeply three times, breathing in through your nose & out through your mouth.
Alternatively, drop three full pipettes of the Elixir into a warm bath. Let the botanical oils and natural aromas work their sleepy magic...
THE THREE Bs OF BEDTIME
Try using our 3 Bs of bedtime to help you form an evening routine:
Most of us suffer with sleep issues at some point. Common reasons for not being able to sleep include anxiety, stress and depression, poor sleep hygiene and lack of routine and consistency.
It is often said that sleep is the third pillar of health, alongside regular exercise and a balanced, healthy diet. But arguably, it is actually the foundation on which exercise and diet are built and maintained.
For adults aged 18-64, the recommended amount of nightly sleep is 7-9 hours. Do you get enough sleep?
WHAT IF WE DON'T GET ENOUGH OF THE GOOD STUFF?
A lot of people think that a lack of sleep just means you feel tired. Unfortunately, it also:
Decreases your ability to endure physical exercise (gym-goers, I’m talking to you)
Causes you to gain weight because, due to hormonal reactions, a lack of sleep makes you feel hungrier while removing the signal that lets you know you are full.
Impacts your judgement which can lead to poor decisions, especially in terms of food choices
Affects your appearance – with studies showing that sleep deprived people appear less attractive and less healthy to others than when they are well rested
Decimates your productivity, creativity and memory
Weakens your immune systems – making you more susceptible to colds, flus and viruses
Impacts your mental health

What’s not to love?
When we launched The London Sleep Company, we had this feeling that because sleep is so natural, our products must be too.
Our Bath & Shower Elixir is made in the UK in small batches. It is vegan, 100% natural and SLS and palm-oil free. Containing no synthetic fragrances, parabens or artificial colours, we believe that what we leave out is just as important as what we put in.
We are passionate about animal welfare – and for that reason none of our products have ever been, or will ever be, tested on animals.
We care about the environment – which is why we use beautiful glass bottles, as opposed to plastic, meaning they can be reused and recycled.
