RELAXAT Lotion and Candle is perfect to help you on your way to dreamy night sleep.
Firstly, set the scene and light your candle to get the aromatherapy oils filling the air
Secondly, do your usual bedtime routine - brush teeth, prepare clothes for the next day, brush air etc.
Once you are ready to get into bed, pump a small amount of lotion into your hand and rub your hand together and take 3 deep breathes, while inhaling the scent on your hand
With the lotion still on your hand (add more if you need), massage into the back of your neck/shoulders and wipe towards the front of your neck
This will allow the aromatherapy scents of RELAXAT to waft and you will smell the scent as you are laying down to fall asleep.
