Directions for using Flora-Sleep:
Formulated for Direct Use — The FES Flourish Formulas™ are conveniently packaged with spray tops, ready for direct application. For emergency or intense episodes, take more frequently until the condition has stabilized.
When to Use — Flora-Sleep™ is designed to facilitate a relaxation response in the body. It is best to use this formula about one hour before bedtime or rest, and then once more just before retiring. It can also be kept on the nightstand, and used if one awakens during the night, to help gently guide the body and soul back to sleep.
Topical Application — The FES Flourish Formulas™ spray tops allow topical applications to be effortless and sanitary. Flora-Sleep™ can be applied topically to energy centers that may be over-stimulated, according to the specific needs of each individual. Key centers that typically need calming before sleep are the point between the eyes (third-eye), the temples on each side of the forehead, the heart center located on the sternum directly in the center of the chest, and the solar plexus/digestive center around the naval and two inches below the naval. Apply one spay on each topical area to be treated. Follow with gentle pressure from the palm of the hand over the treated area for about 60 seconds, while breathing deeply and allowing release.
Baths — Flora-Sleep™ is also very effective in a warm bath. Apply 4-6 sprays to freshly drawn warm water. Stir the water clockwise and counter-clockwise in a figure eight spiral motion for at least one minute. Immerse in the warm bath for 15-20 minutes and then go immediately to bed.
Topical Application with Cream — The FES Flourish Formulas™ are compatible with Self-Heal Creme™, or you can use any other carrier cream that is suitable. Apply one or two sprays per ounce of cream and then stir in each direction. Apply the cream to topical areas of the body that need soothing and calming before sleep.
General Misting — The FES Flourish Formulas™ can also be very effective when lightly misted around the whole body, the head and surrounding body space. Be sure to close eyes and remove glasses before doing so. This method is a special favorite for many children.
