Lavender essential oil is well-known for it’s calming and relaxing properties, and a pillow mist made with lavender essential oil is a great way to experience the fresh, floral and slightly earthy scent of lavender at bed time, but can it really aid a good night’s sleep?


Well, a growing body of scientific evidence has shown that lavender essential oil really can be effective in improving sleep quality. In one study, participants who used a lavender pillow mist reported falling asleep faster and having fewer night-time awakenings, and another study found that lavender essential oil improved sleep quality in people with insomnia.


Lavender is believed to work by interacting with the GABA receptor in the brain, which has a calming effect on the central nervous system. Lavender essential oil also has sedative properties, which can help you fall asleep more easily.


If you are struggling to sleep, pillow mist made with lavender essential oil may be a helpful natural remedy. It is safe and effective for most people, and it has a calming and soothing aroma that can really help you wind down and prepare for sleep.


To use pillow mist, simply spray your pillow with a few mists of the spray before bed. You can also spray the mist on your bedsheets or in the air around your bed. As well as interacting with the GABA receptor in the brain, using the pillow mist regularly in this way before bed can also enable the brain to associate the scent with resting and sleeping, and help you to switch off from the world.
