A Perfect Potion For Sleep

A little while back my blogger buddy Robyn of Girl On Raw asked me if I would write a guest post for her, about maintaining a healthy lifestyle as a flight attendant.

Of course I said yes!!! I could pick any particular subject, so I chose one close to my heart, Sleep!!! You can read about my tips for managing your sleep over at her blog.

As a complement to this post, I want to share with you my latest discovery for helping in a good night's sleep. Recently while shopping in Sydney's Queen Victoria Building, I found the store 'Perfect Potion'. There's an outlet in Brisbane City, but I had thought it ws a stand-alone store. Nope, they've got them in other places too! Perfect Potion aims to make beauty and lifestyle products using organic and natural aromatherapy ingedients. I've used some of their oils before but never the face & body products.

I used to like In Essence travel roller balm but thought I'd see if PP had anything different. I tried a few different products before I saw "Cool It Quick Fix". It's a blend of rosemary, peppermint & lavender designed for use as a quick "pick me up" when you're feeling stressed or tired, including to relieve those yucky tension headaches.

So far- I LOVE IT!!! I recently had gone 3 days without sleeping well and was feeling really rushed & stressed on a flight, to the point where I just knew I'd have trouble sleeping on demand when it came time for the rest break in the crew bunks. I took my Cool It with me and put some on my temples and wrists. The peppermint is really soothing (and has a bonus side effect of helping with travel related nausea) and I don't even remember falling asleep. For the first time, I slept solid for the whole rest time without waking up once.

TT gives this the FA seal of approval!

The good news is, Perfect Potion have an online store & you can also follow them on Twitter and Facebook!

  1. I need some of that when I come back from the US after 2 months. I always have such a problem with jet lag.

  2. I also use their Buzz when travelling - great to pick me up and make me feel more awake.

  3. I need to get me some of this! I am hitting the store before I leave for sure!
