Aromatherapy scents for sleep can really help you to unwind and relax at bedtime. Juliette Goggin and Abi Righton, authors of Handmade Spa: Natural Treatments to Revive and Restore, have created this soothing sleep aromatherapy blend for you to try at home.


Essential oils are known to help you nod off – particularly fragrances such as lavender and camomile. You can dab this calming oil on your face before you go to sleep to enjoy a restful night.
