With over 1/3 of the population reporting problems sleeping a good nights sleep can be the key to reducing stress in your life, being more productive with your days and simply enjoying your life more.
Aiding sleep with aromatherapy oils
Looking for a simple way to bring the benefits of lavender into your bedroom? A lavender pillow spray is a great option!
Lavender has long been associated with sleep, and for good reason. The lavender plant contains compounds like linalool and linalyl acetate, which have calming effects on the central nervous system. This makes lavender a great natural option for promoting better sleep.
To make your own lavender pillow spray, simply combine lavender essential oil with water in a small spray bottle. Then spritz your pillow lightly before bedtime. Inhaling the lavender scent as you drift off to sleep can help you relax and get a good night's rest.
