If you've ever been laying in bed and just can't shut your brain off, I feel your pain. We've all been there at one point or another, whether it's when we're trying to fall asleep or we wake in the middle of the night.
Sleep disturbances are extremely common around the world and are linked to a number of long-term health issues including hypertension, inflammation, and obesity. Not to mention the short-term effects of decreased well-being, impaired performance, and fatigue. Studies have shown a number of sleep benefits from inhaling essential oils. They help to calming the nervous system, lowering heart rate, easing anxiety, and opening the airways to improve breathing. all factors that improve sleep quality.
NOW Essential Oils Peaceful Night is a saving grace.
