One of the perks of working at The Hygge Store is undoubtedly the opportunity to try out all the lovely products that we sell. We stock a large range of candles from some wonderful candle makers and have been smugly burning all varieties of waxed scents around our homes in recent weeks – the smell is divine. Coincidentally, or so I thought, over the last few weeks I have been sleeping particularly well and I attribute the improvement to the tranquillity blends that have been sitting by my bedside. I don’t really struggle to get off to sleep but I am prone to interrupted sleep throughout the night, which hasn’t been a problem of late. There is scientific research to back up the theory of essential oils aiding sleep, in particular lavender has been shown to react the same way biochemically that anti-anxiety medications do with certain neuroreceptors and is a favoured addition to sleep improvement routines amongst sleep experts.
It’s important to note that quality of essential oils can vary widely and their effectiveness may be limited if you buy inferior products. Look for good quality candles containing essential oils noted for their therapeutic quality and purity. We stock a large range of high quality candles, below are some from our range which we recommend to help promote a better nights sleep.
