Easy Stretches with Sleep Tight Magnesium Oil to Get To Sleep Faster

Whether you're an athlete pushing your limits or someone who spends long hours hunched over a desk, chances are you've experienced the discomfort of sore muscles and stiff joints. Fortunately, stretching before bed can provide sweet relief from these aches and pains. By applying On the Mend or Sleep Tight Magnesium oil, you can target tight areas and release built-up tension. The soothing oils also promote circulation and lubrication within the joints, easing stiffness and promoting faster recovery. Incorporating gentle stretches into your bedtime routine can be especially beneficial for those with chronic pain conditions, offering a natural and non-invasive way to manage symptoms and improve overall comfort.


  • Taking a few deep breaths with CBD aromatherapy can start to relax the nervous system and allow your body to deepen into the stretch. 

Relieve Neck Tension with a Salt Stone Massage

Next, apply On the Mend balm to head, neck, and chest then take the salt stone and massage it in. 

  • Start from behind your ear and massage down toward the heart.
  • Place your other hand on your chest and slightly pull in opposition to work into the stretch. 
  • Don’t forget the back of your neck, at the base of your skull and all different sides of your neck as well.

Next, continue with some Restisted Stretching Techniques with the Stretch Strap or sturdy band.

  • Place your thumbs into the loopholes.
  • Bringing your elbows right by your side, take a big deep breath.
  • Exhale, as you look from left to right, and stretch the neck from side to side.
  • Act as if you’re pulling the strap apart and hold for about 3 to 5 counts, relax, realign, and repeat on the other side. 

Play around here and have fun with different angles and just make sure that you're resisting and pulling, resisting and pulling, and stretching in opposition instead of only pulling in one direction. 

Legs Up the Wall Pose:

Whether you've been sitting at a desk, standing for extended periods, or leg day at the gym, stretching hamstring muscles at the end of the day helps release tension & stress.

*Pro Tip: Apply  Sleep Tight or On the Mend oil to hips, back, and legs to promote flexibility and deepen the stretch. 

Promotes Relaxation:

The inversion of your legs and gentle stretch of your hamstrings triggers a relaxation response in your body, helping to calm the nervous system and relax at the end of the day. Adding these stretches into your evening routine signals to your body that it's time to unwind and prepare for sleep.

Improves Posture:

Tight hamstrings and rounded shoulders can contribute to poor posture, leading to discomfort in the lower back and hips. Regular stretching helps lengthen the muscles, promoting better alignment and reducing strain on the spine.
