Lavender oil is known for having a number of benefits on our body, such as relaxation of central the nervous system, alleviating headaches and improving sleep quality. Research has now shown that lavender essential oil can significantly improve your sleep quality (Hawk, 2018). It is often used as an alternative treatment for sleep insomnia. The lavender aids in relaxation of the body and mind. A few drops of this fragrant oil in your palms, or on your pillowcase will help better your quality of sleep and relieve symptoms of stress and anxiety due to terpenoids like linalool and linalyl acetate, present in lavender essential oil, which have powerful therapeutic abilities (Nagdeve, 2019).
In addition, Rosemary normally used in cooking, also has some calming effects on the mind and body for example it supports healthy digestion and respiratory function, helps reduce nervous tension and occasional fatigue. Inhaling Rosemary oil may help reduce short-term stress and anxiety.
