Having a quality mattress and pillow is the first step to a good night’s sleep but it doesn’t end there. Creating a bedroom conducive to relaxation plays a big role in how quickly you will fall and stay asleep. I recently received a free essential oil fan diffuser from SOL Organics along with a bottle of lavender. In fact, a Wall Street Journal article was dedicated to the connection between lavender and sleep:
Lavender is a flowering plant in the mint family. Its aroma has been shown in human studies “to slow down heart rate, slow blood pressure and put you in a parasympathetic state, which is a relaxed state,” says University of Miami School of Medicine scientist Tiffany Field, who has studied the effects of lavender on relaxation and sleep.
There are now many products out that are infused with lavender to induce relaxation such as bath soaps, sprays, candles, etc. However, what I like about a fan diffuser is that it does not burn the oil. Burning an essential oil will lessen its efficacy.
Here’s an overview of what you get and benefits of the diffuser according to SOL:
|– Quiet, Powerful Mini Fan
– Effective over 1000 sq. ft.
– Neutralizes unpleasant odors
– Each diffuser comes with five pads
– Promotes physical & emotional health
|– Pure Lavender Essential oil
– 10 ml bottle (1/3 oz.)
– Convenient & portable
– Purifies the air
The fan is nice a quiet and it doesn’t take long for the scent of lavender to fill the room. It’s also not overpowering. I found the lavender to be of high quality. We also have essential oils from Young Living Oils and the lavender from SOL is just as high caliber.
Not only can essential oils such as lavender help with relaxation and sleep but they can also affect your mood. Lavender has been used to help with symptoms of anxiety and depression as well. See Here.
Since this fan diffuser is about the size of a night light, it doesn’t take up much space and you barely notice its there. The diffuser retails for $45 but in addition to the fan you get organic cotton pads and a 10ml bottle of lavender essential oil. You can buy additional pads if you run out and you can put any type of essential oil in the diffuser.
This diffuser will make a great addition to a bedroom that you want to turn into a haven. SOL stays true to their mission of providing quality products at a fair price. I also enjoy having the peace of mind knowing that the diffuser is blowing the oil through organic cotton pads which do not contain any toxic pesticides.
Aside from the look of your room and the feel of your mattress and sheets, having a pleasing scent will dramatically transform how you enjoy your bedroom.
