When you don’t get a good night’s sleep, it can leave you feeling tired, lacking in energy and in some cases a little bit cranky the next day. If sleep often alludes you, and you’re not one for counting sheep, creating a restful environment using fragrances, such as scented candles, diffusers or room sprays, could be the answer you’re looking for. And here at The Perfume Shop, we have a beautifully scented collection of home fragrances waiting to be discovered.
How can fragrance help you fall asleep faster?
There may be several factors preventing you from enjoying a peaceful night sleep, from a wandering mind to a stressful day that has left you feeling overly stressed and tense. So before you go to bed, you want to try and relax your mind and prepare your body for sleep, which is where fragrance comes in. It is thought that certain scents can help people fall asleep faster, with those associated with relaxation being the most impactful.
If you’re struggling to reach the lad of nod, look at these three fragrances that may help you achieve a state of zen before bed.
Top 3 scents to help you sleep better
Before your bedtime routine, you may want to stop and smell the roses! The pleasant, floral aroma of rose is thought to calm and relax the mind, especially for those who are a little nervous. Treat yourself to a beautiful bouquet of roses to display in your room, or for something longer lasting, try burning a rose-scented candle as you get ready for bed (but don’t forget to blow it out before you drift off!)
Well-known for its calming and relaxing properties, lavender is heavily featured in home fragrance to lull people into a peaceful night’s sleep. To benefit from its gentle sedative characteristics, why not try diffusing lavender essential oil or spraying your pillow with a lavender-infused pillow spray to calm your body and rest your mind?
It’s not just chamomile tea that is chock-a-block full of sleepy benefits; incorporating the scent into your bedtime routine in other ways may help too. For example, try adding a few drops of chamomile essential oil into a warm bath and relax in its scent before getting ready for bed or set up a reed diffuser in your room to enjoy its relaxing benefits 24/7.
