Does The Smell Of Lavender Actually Make You Sleepy?

Does The Smell Of Lavender Actually Make You Sleepy?

The scent of lavender has long been associated with relaxation and calming effects, making it a popular choice for promoting better sleep.

In a study where participants were exposed to lavender before sleep, there was an increase in deep sleep, resulting in a more refreshed feeling upon waking in the morning. Apparently, lavender improved slow-wave sleep, the deep sleep stage in which the heartbeat slows and muscles relax.

Therefore, we've included two lavender-infused treats to help you sleep in our April 2024 Wellness Box.

Skye Candle & Body Care's Lavender Face Toner is an exceptional product that captures the essence of lavender’s soothing benefits. This hydrosol toner is designed to suit all skin types, offering cooling and calming effects that help to rejuvenate the skin. It is also beneficial for managing minor burns and rashes due to its antiseptic properties. By incorporating this lavender toner into your nightly routine, you can experience a tranquil and serene atmosphere that prepares you for a restful sleep. The gentle lavender scent calms the senses and helps ease tension, making it an excellent addition to your pre-sleep ritual.

Linden Leaves' ‘Absolute Dreams’ Body Oil is another wonderful way to experience the sleep-enhancing benefits of lavender. This luxurious body oil naturally hydrates your skin with a blend of organic avocado and rosehip oils, as well as pure sweet almond and apricot kernel oils. The addition of lavender, cedarwood, and orange creates a dreamy blend that promotes ultimate relaxation. The soothing aroma of lavender, combined with the warming scents of cedarwood and orange, creates a calming effect that helps to ease the mind and body. By applying this body oil before bed, you can set the stage for a deep, rejuvenating sleep.

Incorporating these lavender-infused products into your nightly routine can make a significant difference in your sleep quality. Lavender's natural ability to soothe and relax, combined with the benefits of these specific products, can help you drift off to sleep with ease and wake up feeling refreshed and revitalised.

This dreamy duo is included in MyTreat's April 'Sweet Dreams' Wellness Box with four other treats for only $67.50 if you prepay for a year.
