Nothing can be more frustrating than staring at the ceiling at 2 a.m. waiting for sleep that just would not come. A sleepless night can have significant impact on one’s performance, mood, and safety the following morning. Studies show that insufficient sleep can impair the ability to retain information.
A recent paper released by the American Physiological Society confirmed that slow-wave sleep, which takes place during that the deep stage of slumber, is important in memory consolidation. Sleep deprivation can also result to mood swings as suggested/(confirmed) in a study by Tel Aviv University researchers. A night of sleeplessness compromises the brain’s cognitive processing or the ability to “tell what’s important.” This explains why you snap at simple things after losing hours of shut-eye the previous night.
For centuries, people have been using essential oils from plants to treat various health conditions. The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy defines aromatherapy as “the therapeutic application or the medicinal use of aromatic substances (essential oils) for holistic healing.” Some benefits of this healing method are lowering stress and anxiety levels, promoting relaxation, and improving sleep quality. Uratex has incorporated the properties of essential oils into its premier products to ensure you get a satisfying sleep each night. Here are the reasons why you should sleep with Uratex Premium scented pillows.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia or Lavandula officinalis) had been traditionally used in baths to help purify the body and spirit. The essential oils from this plant is extracted from its flowers and used to ease fatigue, reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, and cure insomnia. How does lavender help improve sleep quality? Studies suggest that lavender has properties that slow the activity of the nervous system, stimulating sleepiness. Its essential oils are used in scented candles, massage oils, and bath soaps.
You can also take advantage of the benefits of lavender in Uratex Premium perfumed pillows. The Soft Escape Scented Pillows come in lavender scent that can calm your senses for a long uninterrupted sleep.
Chamomile is an herb that has long been used to help people with sleep disorders and gastrointestinal diseases. It comes in two varieties: the German chamomile and the Roman chamomile. The flowers of this plant, which are extracted for essential oils, contain the therapeutic agents terpenoids and flavonoids. Chamomile is more popularly consumed as tea. “Chamomile in the form of an aqueous extract has been frequently used as a mild sedative to calm nerves and reduce anxiety, to treat hysteria, nightmares, insomnia and other sleep problems,” according to researchers from the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

Like lavender and chamomile, peppermint has amazing benefits for who people have trouble sleeping. Peppermint extracts have been proven to contain energizing properties that ease mental fatigue and reduce stress. Stress causes hyperarousal of the senses, aggravating insomnia and other sleep disorders. Peppermint oil contains hyper-stimulants that reduce fatigue and manage stress levels. A recent study also suggests that peppermint oil can aid in addressing daytime sleepiness. The other notable benefits of this wonder herb include relief for stomach problems, cure for respiratory diseases, pain and infections, and dental problems.
