Facts about lavender and sleep

Sleep impacts moods, performance, overall health, and safety.

Inhalation of essential oils allows the chemical constituents to enter the neurochemical pathway and the circulatory pathway.

Essential oils are made up of fifty to a hundred chemical constituents in a unique combination that is specific to a species of plants. 

Lavandula angustifolia, a species of Lavender, has chemical properties that are calming and sleep inducing.

In a RCT, Lavandula angustifolia was found to have a statistically significant improvement for sleep quality and waking refreshed compared to the group that did not use a Lavandula angustifolia inhalation patch.
