Using lavender essential oil in a diffuser, or sprinkling a couple of drops on a piece of tissue and tucking it inside your pillow can help you follow asleep faster.

The science: Lavender has been shown to have sleep benefits. Sniffing lavender essential oil before bed has been shown to increase quality of sleep, reduce anxiety, promote deep sleep (Karadag et al., 2015; Cho et al., 2013Goel et al., 2005). It has also been shown to decrease the time taken to fall asleep and increase self-satisfaction with sleep (Lee & Lee, 2006).
