Scents To Help You Sleep

scents that helps you sleep

We believe that scents should never be underestimated. Fragrances are both a luxury and a necessity for yourself and your home, but they can also be powerful for your wellbeing too. From improving your mood and energising you for the day ahead, to calming your body and mind. Expertly blended fragrance notes can truly work wonders.

With this in mind, we’ve collaborated with Silentnight to introduce a new collection of mindful home fragrances created using essential oils, to invigorate the senses and relax the mind - all in aid of a productive day and a great night’s sleep.

Here we explore the impact of scents, identify which fragrances can send you into a restful slumber and tell you a little more about our new range with Silentnight.

The science behind scents

We’ll try not to get too scientific for this bit, but did you know that the smell cells in our nose are directly linked to the limbic system, which controls our emotions, behaviours and our long-term memory? It’s not surprising that scents can be relaxing, energising and nostalgic.

Today, the emphasis is on cleverly blending and carefully choosing essential oils to impact our wellbeing, but this is actually an ancient practice. For years, scientists have been researching the impact essential oils can have on sleep, stress, pain and moods and now we can put those learnings into practice…whilst adding our touch of high-quality fragrance blends and beautiful product design, of course!


Relaxing fragrances

Aromas to complement your daily routine

Awake to an infusion of energy and refresh yourself for the day ahead, before melting into the evening in preparation for a dreamy deep sleep…sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Knowing the influence fragrance can have on your wellbeing at all times of the day, it’s time to get strategic about your scents! 

A spritz of room mist can add a spring in your step to start the day, whilst reed diffusers can infuse your home and work environment with scents which boost productivity, before unwinding in a haven of tranquillity at the end of the day with calm and cosy fragranced candles.

Finding the right scents for you

To help you sleep: lavender, vanilla, rose, jasmine and sandalwood.

To boost mood and productivity: lemon, cinnamon, peppermint.

To relieve stress: chamomile, cypress, peach, lavender, orange. 

To make you happy: fresh linen, pine, citrus…although we’d recommend simply filling your home with your favourite fragrances, whatever they may be, for happiness guaranteed!
