Hello hello hello.

My name is Chantelle Otten and I’m a sexologist. Actually, I’m a lot of things. I’m a partner to a busy person, I’m a dog mum, I’m an entrepreneur, I’m a CEO, a scientist, a media personality, an author, but mainly a Sexologist.

What am I doing with my life right now, I’m trying to juggle it all with a smile on my face, looking cute, and staying happy. But I have to admit, it gets really bloody hard sometimes. So much so that I have been grinding my teeth in my sleep, I’m burnt out from writing a book, and I have brain fog.

So I’m currently trying to do all the right things. I’m getting more sleep, going to therapy, and trying to take moments of calm in my busy day. But sometimes, it’s hard to find my moment of time. I need a helping hand. Which is why I am so excited that I found the rest and quiet brand, they are different, what I like about it is that I’m not tasting alcohol in my mouth when I spray their different formulas.

I have got all the Rest&Quiet products. The sleep, calm and focus. They have helped ground me in a few different ways on my journey to full recovery, and I’m determined to use them as preventative when I am back to full health.

So let me break down my work days for you.

I wake up around 7am, and usually I have a sauna for 1 hour and read (part of my new schedule is getting in some fiction reading, as it helps with imagination and relaxation). I drink about a litre of water with liquid probiotics and some salt in it for electrolytes, so I maintain my fluids.

I then get out, and shower off before a coffee and some sprays of ‘focus’ under my tongue. It’s time to start patients, I usually seen 2-3 patients in the morning for an hour each. I recommend these products to my patients also, as many of them suffer with lack of sleep, anxiety and are usually young professionals or students who may use the focus formula to get back in the zone.

When I finish patients I can often be quite tired mentally, and a little bit hyped up, it takes a lot of energy to be there for others. So I usually spray my calm under the tongue and take my little pooch source for an hour’s walk.

When I get back from my walk, I’ll have a bite to eat, and catch up on all the jobs I have to do today, that may be Instagram content, or consulting, or supervision for one of my 20 staff members, and I’ll do another spray of focus to dive into that work.

Usually I’ll either make a very basic meal for dinner, like salmon and salad, or steak and salad. We are really lucky that our house also has grade Uber eats around it, so my partner and I usually sit on the couch and watch TV together with our dog and have a bite to eat. And I’ll either go back in the sauna again and read my book to wind down, or I will have a bath and a snuggle before bed, and use my Sleep formula under the tongue to drift off. I wake up relaxed and happy with a great deep sleep. 

Now, I know there are a lot of different products out on the market. But these are different to me. 

Firstly, they are not another supplement, they are absorbable sprays under the tongue that are highly potent and effective. 

Plus, they are also gluten-free and vegan, for those with requirements. You can also use it for the whole family, because they have no alcohol in them! When I was younger I used to use a spray to calm me down, but it tasted like rum… not great. These are yummy and alcohol free. 

What’s in Dr Bach’s formula? 

Well, they each have a different formula. Because you use them for different reasons!
