Some scents can help you drift off into sleep. Lavender is the most popular sleep-soothing scent. Studies show that people who use lavender as a sleep aid wake up feeling energetic and well rested. Chamomile and ylang-ylang are other scents that activate alpha wave activity in your brain, leading to relaxation and sleepiness.*
You can access soothing scents through essential oils. Drop some essential oil into a hot bath, mix it into a nighttime lotion, or add a few drops into a spray bottle with water and mist your pillows and sheets.
