Sleepless Nights Can Be Debilitating

They can sap us of our energy and ability to perform both as workers contributing to society and as humans dealing with other humans.

Sleep deprivation drains our mental abilities, causes difficulty concentrating, memory problems, mood swings, and low energy levels. Whether you are sleepless in Seattle or any other metropolitan area (or rural for the matter), sleep is integral to health and well being.

Relaxing Scents For Home

Deficient sleep patterns have been known to negatively impact our health and increases the risk of developing serious medical conditions, including: obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Perhaps even more disturbing is the fact that a lack of sleep over time has been associated with a shortened lifespan.

Sleep Issues And the Power of Scent

Scientists believe that the effect of smell on the brain is one of the most fundamental functions of the human body.

When the world was young, smell was part of a natural survival mechanism that registered primal dangers, such as fire.

Fragrances Memories and Emotions

A significant body of research has indicated that smell affects all aspects of our lives, everything from what we dream about to how we spend our money.

Smell affects our power to sleep because is controlled by the limbic system, which is the same part of the brain that manages our sleep.

A study conducted at the Sleep Disorders Centre of the University of Heidelberg, Germany, concluded that there was a direct link between the participants’ dreams and the smell to which they had been exposed.

Those who had been subjected to the pleasant aroma of flowers had positive dreams, while the smell of hydrogen sulfide induced bad dreams and nightmares.

Generally speaking, there are scents that can improve our slumber and many of them are currently available at the BTC web site, Home

Believe it or not, according to recent research conducted at UCLA, the aroma of coffee brewing can have a calming effect.

Given the right dosage, the smell of roses is also known to lower blood pressure and the number of breaths we take per minute, which makes it easier to fall asleep.

Lavender is a soothing fragrance that has been proven to lower anxiety and stress levels, reducing our heart rates.

The aroma of geranium is relaxing and soothing, freeing the mind of stressful thoughts, and the earthy properties of Clary sage also affects mood.

Sweet marjoram is used to treat insomnia due to its soothing and calming properties.

Last but not least is exotic sweet jasmine, which recent studies have linked to lower anxiety levels and better quality of sleep.

While it may not seem obvious that smell can directly affect sleep even more than our other senses, the two are inextricably connected.

Although the extent of their connections are subject to continuing research, current knowledge supports this fact.

Many believe that scents used in aromatherapy bolster better sleep and wake up patterns, and have the capacity to influence dreams and memory creation.

In addition, Circadian rhythms, which are 24-hour cycles that are part of the body’s internal clock, help regulate sleep and influence our sense of smell as well.

According to Theresa Molnar, executive director of the Sense of Smell Institute, which is the research and educational branch of the Fragrance Foundation: “Scents can have positive effects on mood, stress reduction, sleep enhancement, self-confidence, and physical and cognitive performance.”

The enormous impact of fragrance on our daily lives is greatly underrated. Some of our air freshener fragrance refills contain many of these essential oils and can greatly improve the quality of sleep.

They induce calmness and tranquility, two requisite inducements for a healthy slumber.

We offer an enormous array of high quality, affordable fragrances for the modern home and industrial strength air fresheners and odor-control products.

A Few Other Studies And Statistics

Recent studies also suggest that there is a connection between adequate sleep, healing and immune function.

The body repairs itself via sleep causing heart and blood pressure rates to drop, and giving our hearts a much needed break.

Some scents are commonly associated with a more inviting bedroom environment.

A 2012 Bedroom poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation indicated that 78% of participants said they were more excited for bed when their sheets had a fresh scent, and 71% described getting more comfortable sleep with fresh sheets.

Getting the right amount of rest can help to avoid sleep deprivation effects that impact our immune systems and the rest of our bodies.

Studies indicate that sleep benefits out immune system by producing small proteins known as cytokines, which help to trigger the release of other chemicals and proteins that might be needed to combat a threat to the immune system.

Experts speculate that the reasons for this phenomenon may lie in the decreased demands on the body during sleep or the effect of the sleep chemical, melatonin.
