Insufficient sleep affects the ability to carry out daily activities, the National Sleep Foundation suggests that adults need 7–9 hours of sleep per night; shorter and longer sleep durations have been associated with increased morbidity and mortality.
Here are some of our scents to help you relax and be ready to get some z’s.
with its stress-reducing abilities, Lavender is a popular ingredient in bath salts and gels, and even used on fabric softener on your sheets to help you get a good night’s sleep. If your partner has had a particularly stressful day, light up a candle around the apartment to help him/her calm down.
Lemon oil is calming in nature and therefore helps in removing mental fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, anxiety, nervousness and nervous tension. It has the ability to refresh the mind by creating a positive mindset and removing negative emotions. It is also believed that inhaling lemon oil helps in increasing concentration and alertness. It can therefore be used as a room fragrance in offices to increase the efficiency of the employees.
This fragrance is famous for being a potent relaxer. In fact, people who smelled vanilla while completing a stress test had more stable heart rates and better blood pressure readings than those who took the stress test in an unscented room.
Any scent you love any fragrance that makes you happy can promote sleep. Your olfactory system is directly linked to the emotional center in your brain—so when you sniff something that brings back a good memory (like freshly baked bread) or makes you feel excited and full of anticipation (such as the smell of crayons), your body releases feel-good, relaxing chemicals that can set the stage for great sleep. Once you’ve found your sleep-enhancing scent, bring it into your bedroom. Buying a fragrant candle is an easy way to add fragrance to your space (just be sure to blow it out before your head hits the pillow!). You could also use room & linen Mist, gently mist your pillow before bed, or sprinkle a few drops of scent onto a cloth or handkerchief and tuck it under your pillow. Sweet dreams Dahlin’!
