It's no secret that a good night’s sleep is the key to maintaining healthy skin, reducing stress, promoting productivity and feeling all round the absolute best versions of ourselves. But with the fast-paced and stressful lifestyles that many people lead, a restful night's sleep can seem like stuff dreams are made of.

Today marks International Sleep Day (yes, there really is an international day for everything!) and while most of us made it out of bed this morning to resume normal life, there are other ways to celebrate the special day dedicated to catching some Z's.

Look no further than the London-based lifestyle brand, Earl of East. Best known for its eponymous range of travel-inspired, UK-poured candles, the brand is offering 30% off the Nerumae Set today. The set includes the best-selling Shinrin-Yoku candle, a blend of cedarwood, oakmoss and black pepper; and the standout product the Nerumae Pillow Mist, which blends carefully selected ingredients known for their relaxing and stress-reducing properties like lavender and bergamot. Plus, a hefty 500ml pot of Shinrin-Yoku bath salts, which blend Himalayan and Epsom salts to relieve muscle tension and aid relaxation. What’s not to like?

Here Earl of East offers us their expert knowledge to ensure a good night’s sleep today and every day…

1. The Wind Down
Studies say you should allow your body to wind down for at least 1 hour before going to bed, that includes avoiding heavy meals and exercise. Slowing a busy mind before it hits the pillow will help guarantee a good night’s rest. Whether that's running a bath or reading a book, plan your bedtime ritual and learn to love it. For evening bathers, try the Shinrin-Yoku Ball Salts - a blend of Himalayan and Epsom salts made to relieve muscle tension and aid relaxation.

2. Scent Your Space
We think having a scent that you associate with relaxation, is a great evening ritual to foster. If you're worried about extinguishing a flame before falling asleep, try using an essential diffuser with a calming essential oil blend such as Shinrin-Yoku to fill your space with a calming aroma. An earthy blend of cedar wood, oakmoss and black pepper, Shinrin-Yoku is inspired by the Japanese ritual of forest bathing.

3. Beauty Sleep
Do you have a nightly skin or beauty routine? It doesn't have to be complicated - taking the time to treat your skin is a wonderful self-care ritual. Additionally, mindful physical activity such as Gua Sha, facial massage or doing a face mask can help bring your awareness away from a busy mind and ground busy energy in your body.

4. Do Not Disturb
As well as the stimulation of light, we really do think it's best to stay away from technology, and scrolling, no matter how tempting. Not that into reading? Try a soothing playlist instead...which doesn't necessarily have to be sounds of rain or the ocean. We recently put together some new scent playlists to complement our bathing line.

5. The Star of the Show
Literally meaning "to lie down and go to sleep", our Nerumae Sleep Mist is a bespoke blend of Mandarin, Lavender, Geranium and Frankincense to help bring you into a wonderful state of calm before bed, evoking a snoozy mood. Spray it on your pillow or fill your room that evening. It's also a great one to spritz if you wake in the night and are struggling to fall back to sleep.
