Aromas that can help you relax and lead to a better sleep

Aromas that can help you relax and lead to a better sleep

According to a survey by The Great British Bedtime Report, more than 61% of people asked said that on average, they get between five to seven hours of sleep a night – much lower than the recommended eight hours.

Aromatherapy could be the solution to help you rest at night. Experts believe smell is our strongest and most-influential sense – did you know scent receptors are 10,000 times more accurate than taste buds? That in mind, smell has the power to get our attention, our olfactory system is directly linked to the emotional center in the brain meaning when we smell something we deem to be calming, it helps us relax.

Chamomile is an ancient sweet smelling herb that contains therapeutic properties that helps the body to relax. Chamomile can help treat insomnia, stress and tension, and can be effective through using it in a herbal tea, oil or room spray.

Another favourite among struggling sleepers is lavender. Lavender aromatherapy is able to help people living with anxiety, depression and insomnia. The scent relaxes the muscles and can slow down a person’s nervous system aiding sleep. By using it as an oil or mist, its effects can help ease your mind and promote sleep.

Lavender and Chamomile have been proven to be two of the most effective scents for calming and preparing for sleep. The combination makes a perfect relaxation supplement as the soothing pair aid and promote quality sleep.
