We’ll let her tell you why:
"It's one thing to read about weighted blankets having been medically proven to calm, relax and help sleep, and it's another to see it first-hand. My Jack Russell, Nella, is a rescue dog with a significant past trauma and a highly sensitive nervous system. The moment I unwrapped the blanket, it became undisputedly hers. It is as if she feels the healing power of the crystals; she has monopolized the blanket and refuses to sleep on anything else. I guess I'm getting another one. This blanket is our family favorite."
Evenly distributed weight makes you feel safe, comforted and relaxed. Scientists also say that they help:
• Lower anxiety
• Produce deeper sleep
• Relieve muscle and joint pain
• Alleviate restless leg syndrome
• Feel calmness and a spike in joy (or, as they put it, “decrease cortisol and release serotonin”)
Real gemstones amp up the relaxation by vibrating good, natural energy. They are mixed in with tiny glass beads so that the weight moves ergonomically with your body. Here’s what’s inside:
• Rose Quartz - the stone of love; it opens up the heart and promotes emotional healing.
• Amethyst - a tranquilizer; it relieves stress and soothes negative emotions.
• Clear Quartz - an amplifier; it’s dubbed “the master” due to its ability to magnify the vibrations of other crystals.
• Micro glass beads - the best way to create gentle, evenly-distributed weight that is also hypoallergenic and more environmentally friendly than plastic poly pellets.
