Getting a good night's sleep is vital for our body and mind to operate properly; affecting everything including our mood, our focus, our energy and even our libido.

Often we can feel quite stressed and anxious before bed, and find it difficult to switch off and relax. This can make it difficult for us to fall asleep, or to even get into that sleepy head space in the first place meaning that we end up tossing and turning throughout the night and getting to bed late. One of the best ways to get in that sleepy mood and unwind is to improve your relaxation before bed, and de-stress and slow down your nervous system.
Scents can really help with this, stimulating our olfactory sense and sending messages to our brain to help us relax. Scents can help to relax both our minds and bodies, sooth our nerves and help to improve our sleep. A great way to help ourselves unwind and get sleepy is by having a hot bath before bed, using a lavender spray on our pillow, and doing some meditation and breath-work before setting off to sleep.
Helping you Fall Asleep Faster
As well as helping us to relax, scents can also help us to fall asleep faster. Many of us find it difficult to get to sleep, and end up staying up for hours in bed not being able to sleep even when we are tired. This can lead to over-thinking and worries, and can be incredibly frustrating when all we want to do is shut off and get to sleep. So if you hate spending time counting sheep before bed, maybe consider incorporating some scents into your night-time routine.
Scents can help us to fall asleep faster, and naturally induce sleep promoting qualities in our brains to help us get into a deep and restful sleep. Essential oils can be amazing for this, you can apply them topically, sprinkle them onto your pillow, or use a diffuser. Some essential oils that are commonly used to enhance sleep and help you to fall asleep faster include Lavender, German Chamomile, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, and Rose. Just incorporating some scents into your night time routine can help to bring about sleep, and have a calming and relaxing effect on your mind and help any anxiety that you might have.
Better Sleep Quality
We don’t just want to be able to fall asleep, we want to be able to have a good quality of sleep. There is no substitute for a good night's sleep, and sometimes we can end up falling asleep and then experiencing a disturbed sleep where we are constantly waking up and aren’t able to stay asleep. We need deep REM sleep to rest and recover properly, and feel great the next day which is why sleep quality is so important.
To help you land comfortably in a sleepy dreamland, scents can help and get you into a calm state so you can sleep deeply and restfully. Using scents can help you to decompress, relax and unwind and get into a sleepy state so that you can sleep all night long without interruptions. A great way to become relaxed before bed and enjoy a deep night's sleep is by lighting a candle, to enjoy its beautiful scent as well as the relaxing atmosphere they set.
