Aromatherapy and Sleep!

Aromatherapy and Sleep!

Oct 23rd 2020

Although there are several reasons why you can suffer from insomnia, possibly the leading cause of insomnia today is stress. Stress can lead to depression and anxiety, which are both conditions that keep you lying awake at night. Whatever the reason for your insomnia, the common results are the same; you will feel tired, may suffer from foggy brain, are less able to cope with your day-to-day routine, maybe develop anxiety attacks and, in more serious cases, develop severe depression.

Aromatherapy is a great alternative to more traditional sleep aids like sleeping pills that often leave you sluggish and hung-over in the morning. Aromatherapy at bedtime can often help you overcome periods of insomnia in your life. There are several scents that are helpful with insomnia, but one of the most popular ones is Lavender.

In a recent study, Lavender increased the percentage of deep or slow‐wave sleep (SWS) in men and women. All subjects reported higher vigor the morning after lavender exposure, corroborating the restorative SWS increase. Lavender also increased stage 2 (light) sleep, and decreased rapid‐eye movement (REM) sleep and the amount of time to reach wake after first falling asleep (wake after sleep onset latency) in women, with opposite effects in men. Thus, lavender serves as a mild sedative and has practical applications as a novel, nonphotic method for promoting deep sleep in young men and women and for producing gender‐dependent sleep effects.  The full study can be read at
