I frequently blog about memory foam mattresses, natural latex mattresses, and sleep. I personally have a very keen sense of smell, so Top 5 Serene Bedroom Scents jumped out at me as something that might be interesting. Scents are also very strong triggers of memory and can remind us of things or places in our past too.
The top five scents that soothe your nerves and create a peaceful sleeping environment are Eucalyptus, Bergomot, Lavender (I already knew this one was soothing), Night-Blooming Jasmine, and Sandalwood. Although these scents are all quite different, each has its own way of helping one sleep more easily. Eucalyptus can relax your mind and muscles, as well as clean your sinuses. Bergamot is a citrus scent known for easing stress. Lavender is known for its soothing powers and is frequently found in sleep and bedroom products. Night-Blooming Jasmine is a fragrant flower that is sweet and soothing; and Sandalwood is a spicy musky scent. You can check out the linked article to read how to add these scents to your sleep repertoire.
Another way to ensure a good night’s sleep is by making sure you are sleeping on a comfortable mattress. Tossing and turning to get comfortable and waking up without feeling refreshed are sure signs that you need a new mattress. At Healthy Foundations, we want you to be as informed about your mattress options as possible. Although we sell memory foam, check out our buyer’s guides for natural latex mattresses and air beds too.
