Why You Should Take Your Jewelry Off Before Bed
You’ve probably heard that we should remove our jewelry before a range of activities, including before bed. Not only can our jewelry get damaged during the night while we toss and turn, but, our bodies also absorb the metals throughout the night while we sleep.
It only takes seconds for something that touches your skin to get absorbed. On average, a person sleeps between 6-10 hours a night. That is plenty of time for those metals to continue to absorb into our skin.
While we sleep our bodies go to work detoxing our organs and rejuvenating our cells. Our bodies need that time to process out any toxins, including the metals from our beloved heirlooms.
For the sake of your health and the health of your jewelry, we recommend removing your precious jewels before bed. Keep them nearby in a special dish or box so when you wake up, they will be waiting for you to put them back on and start the day.
The metals in our jewelry are not the only things our bodies need to detox from during the night. There are many things to be mindful of and incorporate into your nightly routine.
A few nightly rituals we do are:
Shower or bathe to remove any pollutants from the day. We bathe with Epsom Salt, Vitamin C, Bentonite Clay and Lavender petals.
Unplug electronics (or keep them out of the bedroom) to give our bodies a break and give our cells and organs a chance to rejuvenate.
Keep the sheets clean using a non-toxic laundry detergent. We clean the linens once a week to keep away any dead skin cells and loose hairs that hold toxins.
Place a crystal near the bed or on a side table. Our favorites to keep in the bedroom are, rose quartz (for love), selenite (for clearing) and black tourmaline (to ward off negativity).
We would love to know what your nightly rituals are!
