Outstanding! She Said.....

Typically, my mother reserves the word "outstanding" for things like theater and cheesecake. However- this time it was different.
My mom told me about sleeping issues she had been having for quite a while. No trouble falling asleep, but staying asleep wasn't working so well. She had said it was part hormones and part stress. For me, I'm so tired at the end of the day that I usually pass out pretty quickly. If I'm up in the middle of the night, it's probably somebody else's fault.
In my effort to help- we all deserve the opportunity to sleep and let our bodies and brains rest- I suggested a new product from Young Living. It's called Sleep Essence. It works by inducing total relaxation and helping calm us down so we can sleep peacefully. I picked up a bottle at a meeting and held it for her. During a recent visit, she tried the pills. Totally natural and filled with ingredients like lavender, vetiver, valerian, and Ruta graveolens essential oils with the hormone melatonin—a well-known sleep aid. We both waited to see what would happen.
She took one pill 1/2 hour before bed and slept soundly until she was awakened by my nephew in the middle of the night. To her absolute delight- she had no problem getting back to sleep once my nephew was asleep. And the best news- she slept soundly until 7 the next morning. In her words: Sleep Essence does the same thing a prescription would but it's all natural which is so much better.
