How to Fall Asleep Faster with Fragrance?
Do you have trouble falling asleep at night? Studies show that fragrance has the power to significantly affect your mood, reduce stress, and relax your muscles, all things that you want before hitting the sheets. It's the same reason why hotels and Airbnb hosts use bedroom-specific scents to help guests achieve a better night of sleep.
The Best Scents for Sleep
Which scent you choose to help you call asleep depends on your bedtime needs. Do you need a scent that relaxes your mind from racing a million miles an hour or a scent that relaxes your muscles and body or all of the above?
In order to sleep peacefully and wake up completely rested, wrap yourself with vanilla-based scents. Other perfume notes that can also be particularly appealing at nighttime are white flowers such as magnolia, jasmine, and ylang ylang.
These are the best scents for sleep because they are soothing and relaxing scents that can help you fall asleep faster and have a deeper and more restful sleep, so you wake up feeling refreshed.
Essential Oils That Will Help You Fall Asleep Faster
Perfumes contain natural essential oils in different percentages, Parfum being the strongest and cologne being the weakest – with Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette in the middle. Many essential oils have properties that are proven to improve sleep. Your perfume can actually work as an aromatherapy tool, landing you comfortably in dreamland!
The best sleep-inducing smell in liquid essential oil is lavender. Using a perfume with Lavender before and during sleep can decrease the time it takes to fall asleep, reduce wake-up times during the night, and improve a sense of vitality the following day.
Other essential oils in your perfume that can help you get to sleep faster include:
- Ylang Ylang Oil
- Chamomile Oil
- Peppermint Oil
- Bergamot Oil
- Sandalwood Oil
- Cedarwood Oil
- Marjoram Oil
- Clary Sage Oil
- Vetiver Oil
- Eucalyptus Oil
- Valerian Oil
These fragrances are deeply soothing and calming, they can even reduce restlessness and slow down the heart rate which can calm feelings of anxiety.
Keep your favourite night-time perfume on your nightstand to lightly spritz yourself and your pillow when you go to bed.
Looking to upgrade your beauty sleep? Below are our favourite fragrances that also double as olfactory nightcaps.
Black Opium Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent
This classic perfume, Black Opium Eau de Parfum, can also be your bedtime favourite. The highly comforting coffee and vanilla aroma steal the scent show here, but you can also gather notes of amber and jasmine, among others. It is a dark and mysterious scent that promotes calmness and comfort which is ideal for sleeping.
Code Profumo by Giorgio Armani
Armani Code Profumo is a decadent and velvety amber and lavender concoction and when combined with my bedsheets is addictive, to say the least. The woody nuances are highlighted with a hint of warm spices and vanilla that transport you to a peaceful forest escape.
Another Tip: Use essences that are created with natural ingredients, because they are able to develop aromatherapy effects that will help your sleep; whereas synthetic notes, unfortunately, do not have these beneficial properties. And whatever you choose, keep it reserved for a bedtime scent. While the powers of scent association can help you fall asleep faster, they can also have the same effect if worn in the middle of the day.
