Waking up after a night of less-than-peaceful sleep is no fun. Thankfully, there may be a pillow that could solve that restless night problem for you. These aromatherapy pillows are infused with lavender, chamomile or peppermint, and just might be your key to a good night’s rest.
It’s called the Z Zoned Dough Lavender-Infused Memory Foam Bed Pillow by Malouf and is for sale on Amazon. The pillow retails from $86-$101, depending on the size and comes in queen, king and even a travel-sized option.
According to a recent poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, more than three-fourths of people said they are more excited to go to bed when the sheets have a fresh scent. Purchasing a pillow with the scent of lavender, for example, certainly could make you more willing to hit the hay each night!
Lavender is known for its soothing properties. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center it has slight calming, soothing, and sedative effects when its scent is inhaled. In other words, breathing scents from this aromatherapy pillow while you sleep could not only help you fall asleep faster, but it could also ensure that you don’t wake up multiple times throughout the night.
According to the Amazon reviews, the travel size pillow is small enough to fit in a suitcase or large purse. But if you prefer a neck pillow as opposed to a traditional pillow when you travel, you can also find scented versions of those from the brand, as well.
Some folks who left reviews online didn’t find the lavender scent to be as noticeable as they were hoping, but thankfully the product comes with a spray bottle of essential lavender oil so that you can give your pillow a refresh of the scent whenever it needs it.
Along with the soothing scents, the Malouf pillows are also made out of memory foam, which basically means you’ll feel as though you’re sleeping on a cloud.
If an aromatherapy pillow isn’t enough to help you fall asleep (and stay that way!), you can also find lavender-infused mattress toppers through Amazon. You’ll feel as though you’re lying in a field of lavender as you doze off. It just doesn’t get more peaceful than that.
There’s also the option to diffuse soothing essential oils into the air as you slumber. You can find oil diffusers for under $20 on Amazon.
Whether you try an aromatherapy pillow or mattress topper or a diffuser, let the stress melt away as you drift off with the smell of lavender surrounding you. Sounds relaxing, doesn’t it? We’re feeling ready for bed just thinking about it!
