Serene Your Wellness Rituals | My Secret for Finally Getting Eight Hours of Sleep

Remember this: Looking after yourself is the most important thing you can do for yourself, your family, and your friends.

This, my friend, is a reminder to those who are constantly putting everyone ahead of their own needs. To those moms who need a reminder that they must also take some time to look out for themselves.

In today's super busy and crazy world, you become so consumed with work, and social commitments that you forget to take time just for YOU! And you don't have to feel guilty about spending a day for yourself for some pampering and self-care. It's not selfish at all, but rather a very selfless act so you can be well, present and viable for yourself and your family.

Today, I'm sharing my wellness rituals and my secret for finally getting eight hours of sleep. Yep. Getting enough sleep has never been a talent I possess.

During stressful periods of my life, I find myself tossing and turning. All. Night. Long. *cue music* Sadly, even relaxation music and lullabies didn't work for me. I’m sure I’m not the only person out there to say this: Falling asleep is hard, besh!

Some of my conversations with friends revolve around the endless pursuit of a full eight hours sleep. In my very frustrating search for a sleep solution, I stumbled across an unexpected miracle inhaler, and other amazing products at Serene Your Wellness Rituals, to help me in my journey towards self-love and self-care.

It's a lovely space of serenity and peace where you can feel comfortable to unwind, re-balance, and recharge. This is the perfect place to shop for wellness products and for those seeking a sanctuary for mind, body, and spirit. It is located at 74 Creekside Mall at Tomas Morato, Quezon City, right beside Liza Soberano's Hope Hand & Foot Wellness. Read my post about it here.

Glad I met the amazing owner, Ms. Joni Lyn Castillo-Pillarina, who has all the things you will ever need to create your own wellness rituals for the purpose of looking after the most important person in your life... YOU! I am very grateful to Ms. Joni for curating handmade and all-natural products to nourish and pamper my body, mind and soul. Seriously, the world needs more brilliant people like her sharing their passion and wellness advocacy for the whole world to enjoy.

Also, Ms. Joni can help you create your own wellness rituals and spa experience at home. That's when you are in need of relaxation, nurturing and pampering, but don't have the time or the money for a luxurious day at the spa. It's also a great alternative to drinking beer, wine or any alcoholic drink as "pampatulog" or to unwind after a long, stressful day at work.

As for me, I will try to do all the things I'm supposed to do for a great night's rest. So here are some tips and techniques, to do just that!

1. Turn your space into a relaxing, refreshing haven with scent-sational candles or by adding drops of lavender oil into your diffuser, and meditate. Lavender  has become the magic ingredient in my nighttime wind-down routine. It's great at bedtime to lull you into a state of zen.

Serene Your Wellness Rituals has a wide range of imported oils and locally-produced wellness products such as the Virgin Coconut Oil and Pili Oil. Relax while you breathe in delicate aromas of Serene's essential oils, custom-blended to suit your needs. They also have chemical free, all natural, cold process soaps, balms, scented candles, beeswax massage bars, and even baby skin salve for the little ones.

2.  Stop and smell the Rose Face Oil, or better yet, apply it on your face by using a jade roller.

This is my favorite bedtime skincare routine and I use it every night. Consider it self-care in a bottle. It leaves my skin dewy and moisturized, and it smells lovely. I apply a few drops of the Rose Face Oil (priced at Php600) on my face, and use the Jade Roller to massage my skin. They also sell battery-operated Jade Roller that help absorb oils, serums, masks, moisturizers and creams for deeper skin penetration.

Here are some of the beauty benefits of rose oil:
  • help skin heal from scars 
  • help refine skin texture and brighten complexion
  • moisturize the skin
  • fight inflammation, reduce puffiness of the skin and the appearance of under eye circles
  • relieve stress 
  • promote circulation

But wait, there's more...

it's also an aphrodisiac and can evoke romantic feelings, which is why I highly recommend it. LOL Seriously, there are so many benefits in using rose oil and it’s safe or gentle enough that you can experiment with it.

3. Use a blended oil inhaler or Serene's Bedtime Roller Blend.

I must admit that my new-found love for inhaler is actually one of the best ways to help me get the most restful sleep I’ve had in months. Super effective! They also have blended oil inhalers for overeating, anxiety, stress, over-fatigue, headache, allergy, cough and flu, etc.

Wellness is so vital for your happiness and sense of self-worth, and if you, like me, love pampering yourself with all-natural ingredients, you have to check out all the essentials at Serene. Indeed, having your skin pampered and cared for, while your spirit is rejuvenated, is pure bliss.

So what are you waiting for? Visit Serene Your Wellness Rituals and shop for natural wellness products for a blissful sleep, ahead.
