Scent yourself to better sleep

Having difficulty sleeping? Try using lavender or jasmine in your bedroom!

Scientists at the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), an independent non-profit organization in the USA, have confirmed that having lavender or jasmine scents in your bedroom can give you a better night’s sleep.

Researchers at the NSF polled the sleeping habits of Canadians, Germans, Mexicans, Americans and Britons, and found that the majority of them felt more relaxed in bed if the room smelt nice. David Cloud, chief executive officer at the NSF, said that “Having a pleasant scent and a relaxing bedroom routine can contribute to a good night’s sleep.” A pleasant scent in the bedroom isn’t only beneficial for a good nights sleep - studies have shown that it can help with memory-building.

The poll also asked which scents disrupted sleep the most and found that mold, stale air, pet odour and body odours were amongst the worst.

Lavender has been known to help people have deeper sleep, and even helps to relieve insomnia, while jasmine has been found to very effective in relieving nerves and aiding sleep.

If you want to sleep better ensure that you have a good mattress, plenty of fresh air and try putting placing a few jasmine or lavender plants, sprigs or even using an air fresheners around the bedroom.
