Insomnia Cure Bath

Take One and Sleep Better Tonight

Relax in an insomnia cure bath and enjoy a natural insomnia cure.  A simple insomnia cure is a warm bath an hour or more before bed which may help you relax and sleep better.  It is important that you don't have your bath right before bed as the warm water will raise your body temperature and have an arousing effect on you rather than a sedating one.

You need to allow time for your body temperature to lower by bedtime while still remaining relaxed and peaceful.  The warm water will affect your circulatory system and ease your body into restfulness as well as alleviate tension.
