The Essential Role of Sleep in Well-being and Wellness

Sleep is often undervalued in today’s fast-paced world, seen as a luxury rather than a necessity. However, sleep is a critical component of our well-being and overall wellness. Far from being a passive activity, sleep is a dynamic process that affects almost every tissue and system in the body—from the brain to the heart and the immune system to metabolism.

The Essential Role of SleepWhy Sleep Matters: More Than Just Rest

  1. Cognitive Function and Mental Health: Sleep plays a pivotal role in cognitive processes. It helps consolidate memories, meaning that experiences and information learned during the day are processed and stored overnight. Did you know that sleep deprivation is linked with an increased risk of developing mood disorders such as depression and anxiety?

  2. Physical Health: Sleep’s benefits extend well beyond the brain. While we sleep, our bodies are busy repairing muscles, synthesizing proteins, and releasing growth hormones, which are all vital for muscle repair and growth. 

  3. Immune Function: During sleep, your immune system releases proteins called cytokines, some of which help promote sleep. Certain cytokines need to increase when you have an infection or inflammation or are under stress. Sleep deprivation may decrease the production of these protective cytokines. 

The Consequences of Sleep Deprivation: A Wake-Up Call

Ignoring the need for sleep can have severe consequences. Short-term impacts include impaired judgment, mood swings, and reduced coordination. Long-term effects are even more concerning and include chronic health issues such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Not to mention, sleep deprivation can severely impair immune function over time, making it harder for your body to fight off infections.

Sleep is not merely a time filler or an obligatory part of the daily routine; it is a fundamental aspect of our well-being and overall health. Embracing good sleep practices is not just about preventing health issues—it’s about enhancing our quality of life. So tonight, as you prepare for bed, remember that you’re not just “checking out” for the day, but are actively engaging in something that rejuvenates, heals, and restores your body and mind. Sleep well, live well.

When it comes to indulging in some nourishing self-care, nothing beats a soothing soak in the tub with Dead Sea salts! They have a multitude of skincare benefits and are also incredibly effective in relieving stress and tired muscles. We’re sharing our favorite things about this wonderful nutrient-rich salt, and why you need to use it in your own self-care routine.

What Are Dead Sea Salts?

Dead Sea salts actually do come from the Dead Sea, like their name suggests. These magnificent salts contain 21 minerals not found anywhere else in the world—minerals like magnesium, calcium, chloride, potassium, sodium, and bromide. These powerful minerals are best known for relieving aching, tired muscles, arthritis, and even symptoms of fibromyalgia.

While you can travel all the way to the Dead Sea to soak in its goodness, you can use Jordan Essentials’ Dead Sea Salts to enjoy the benefits right in the comfort of your own tub.

Jordan Essentials Dead Sea Salts
At Jordan Essentials we take our Dead Sea salts seriously! We “power up” the soothing effects of our Dead Sea Salts by adding extra magnesium and stress-relieving essential oils, like peppermint or lavender. Our proprietary formula is a custom blend of Dead Sea salts you won’t find anywhere else! The natural minerals and added magnesium are most beneficial and produce a rejuvenating and revitalizing effect on the body.

Why We Use Dead Sea Salts
One of the most common reasons for using Dead Sea salts is to heal tired, achy, and sore muscles. Even if your muscles aren’t sore, you can benefit from soaking in Dead Sea salts for their relaxing effect on the body and the mind. But what many people don’t know is that they are also beneficial in improving your skin too!

Dead Sea salts detoxify the skin and remove impurities, giving the skin a fresh, younger appearance. Packed with minerals – they will work together to enhance skin hydration, removing flakiness and the ashy, dry appearance we so often get after a day out in the sun and sand. Minerals like calcium, potassium, and zinc especially help relieve itchy skin.

4 Ways To Use Dead Sea Salts

Here are 4 ways to use Dead Sea salts at home and reap the benefits of these much-needed minerals!

    1. Take a “spa” bath: Add about a ¼ cup of Dead Sea salts to your warm bath. If you prefer to create your own essential oil blend, then use our Unscented Magnesium Dead Sea Salts. Just add a drop of two to of your favorite oil your salts and mix before adding them to your bath. Or try one of our therapeutic essential oil blends, like Peppermint, Lavender & Eucalyptus, or Oatmeal Milk and Honey.
    2. Make your own foot soak: Add 2-3 tablespoons of our Dead Sea salts to a foot bath of warm water and allow the salts to_C2A0529.jpg completely dissolve. Get comfortable and let your feet soak in the water to heal. The minerals will be absorbed into your skin, treating both your tired feet and body by replenishing it of depleted minerals.
    3. Use to soothe dandruff: Yep. Dead Sea salts can even diminish dandruff! Simply combine 1 tablespoon of our Unscented Magnesium Dead Sea Salts with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Massage the mixture into your scalp and wait 5 minutes. Then rinse well and wash your hair with Moisturizing Shampoo. The mineral components give the scalp a deep cleanse, combating the bacteria and yeasts that cause flaky skin and dandruff. The salt acts as a natural exfoliator, scrubbing away dead skin cells and buildup. Make sure you finish with our Daily Conditioner to seal in the hydration!
    4. Heal your nails and cuticles: Soak your nails in a mixture of 1 teaspoon Dead Sea salts, 1 drop lemon essential oil, 2 tablespoons water, and ½ teaspoon olive oil. Combine the ingredients well and soak your nails for 5 minutes. Then scrub them with a nail brush and rinse well.

There are so many wonderful benefits to using Dead Sea salts for your skin, your body, and your mental health. It’s time to take a trip to the Dead Sea (aka your bathtub!) to reap all the benefits of our favorite self-care ritual!

ENJOY THE HEALTHY BENEFITS OF LAVENDER FOR YOUR FAMILY THIS SUMMER.

ENJOY THE HEALTHY BENEFITS OF LAVENDER FOR YOUR FAMILY THIS SUMMER.

The lavender story begins in 1910 when René-Maurice Gattefossé plunged his hand into a vat of lavender oil after suffering a severe burn. He was amazed at how quickly, and with minimal scarring, the burn healed. His story spread and elevated lavender to its prominent position as the go-to essential oil for burns.

We don’t know about you but minor cuts and burns happen all the time all summer long.  No need to watch your family  suffer with Lavender Essential Oil in your Mom bag of remedies.  Lavender is an “essential” (pun intended) oil for busy families during the summer months.

Cool it down! It is true that Lavender Essential Oil is fantastic for minor burns, including sunburn and windburn. To start the cooling and healing process quickly, mix one or two drops of Lavender Essential Oil with a quarter-size amount of your favorite unscented lotion like JE Skin Relief, and gently apply to the affected area.  The lavender will immediately begin cooling and soothing. Skin Relief will help nourish the skin back to health.

Want a quick spritz and premix?  Lavender Essential Oil Spray is safe to spray directly on the skin for that instant, soothing effect.  It is perfectly diluted for use around the home, car, or workplace.

Summer on-the-go stress freaking you out just thinking about it?  Lavender Essential Oil takes care of that too. It is calmness in a bottle! Enjoy its relaxing properties by placing a drop or two on a cotton ball, hold it gently in your hands, raise up to your nose and inhale! Ahhhh….the aroma fills your nose and calms your spirits!  You can take on anything summer can dish out!

Well…maybe not quite everything! If you get a little too energetic with playing in the park, exercising or yard work, tight and sore muscles can benefit from lavender essential oil also.  Partner lavender with Magnesium and you have the one-two punch. Jordan Essentials has made this easy with our premixed Lavender Magnesium Spray. This spray is diluted to be sprayed directly on the skin and is ideal for those hard to reach places like between the shoulders and lower back.

Moms can mix their own Lavender Magnesium lotion. Take a drop or two of Lavender Essential Oil and add it to five pumps of Naturally Unscented Magnesium Lotion, gently mix and apply to the sore muscle area. Fast relief is on the way!

Feel good knowing there are alternatives like Lavender Essential Oil that can be used by the whole family in a variety of ways.
