The team at ILA believe an optimum night’s sleep is achieved through a ritual-like approach to bedtime. Undoubtedly, this starts with a bath.
The Big Sleep Bath Salts includes magnesium and Himalayan salt to help you close the day in a calm, collected manner before a restful, restorative sleep.
The Big Sleep Drops were developed to combat the incessant disturbance of sleep. Combining calming chamomile, the soporific effects of belladona and the nurturing qualities of orange blossom and liquorice, the mind and body are lured into a moment of calm before sleep takes over.
The Big Sleep Mist is a quietly potent combination of plants and gemstone, including amethyst, lavender and jasmine. These bring calming and soothing energies that help to battle insomnia, release stress and inspire dreams
Denise Leicester, founder of ILA Spa explains: “It’s not called beauty sleep for nothing: from both a scientific and an esoteric viewpoint, sleep brings the ultimate renewal to our cells and systems. During the day we are in a metabolic phase, our cells requiring and burning energy.”
“During sleep, most of our systems are in a heightened anabolic state, accentuating cellular growth and rejuvenation – particularly in regard to the immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems. On a physical level, a good night’s sleep helps counter signs of ageing – from dark circles and swollen, bloodshot eyes to dull skin and wrinkles. It also boosts mental clarity, improves physical performance, takes the edge off emotional traumas, helps defend our body against pathogens and protects against everything from heart disease to stress.”
Understanding what we need to sleep well is essential. A room that is dark, quiet and slightly cooler helps promote deeper, more restful slumber. Not stimulating the mind with TV, alcohol, caffeine or close-up screen-time in the evening is equally important. A regular night-time cleansing routine not only give cells important breathing space to renew but also helps body and mind to shut down.
An ancient Sanskrit word for Mother Earth, ILA is a beyond organic skin and heart care brand which aims to do something very simple, but also completely revolutionary. The vision was to create a range of highly potent and sacred products, which channelled the raw remedial power of nature. It took two years to find the right type of roses to use, sourced from India and wild harvested at dawn for the highest vibration by artisan producers; the petals of 38 flowers are used to produce just one drop of oil.
The products are created in a meditative environment by hand in the Cotswolds using unsurpassed natural ingredients and minimal processing, and the company supports tribal communities, villages and farmers all over the world.
Denise added: “What I hope is that those who use ila products at home start to feel a real sense of daily healing and fulfilment. Never has the need been greater for this sort of gentle care.”
