Scents for a good night’s sleep

Scents for a good night’s sleep

Sleep is a crucial biological process and one of the most important determinants of our health. A recent study shows that 62% of adults don’t get enough sleep. Stress, heavy work schedules, anxiety along with mental and physical health issues have been identified as the main causes. Sleep loss is often neglected but can lead to serious and long-lasting health problems.

Good practices for a good night’s sleep include sports activities, meditation, daylight, routine, and comfort. In addition, aromatherapy can also play a key role. Many studies have shown that essential oils can improve mood, reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality.

Aromatherapy or the practice of using essential oils for medical purposes, such as reducing stress or improving sleep quality, has been used for thousands of years around the world. It has been scientifically proven that certain essential oils such as lavender promote relaxation, improve sleep quality and even treat insomnia. Among the most relaxing and sleep friendly oils, we can also mention lavendin, ylang ylang, pine (arven), spruce needle, cedarwood, bergamot, and roman chamomile.

We have developed a specific series of 100% natural fragrances (TrueScent™), based on high quality essential oils known for their relaxing and sleep-enhancing properties. For more information, please contact us.
