Ever wonder why you sleep better at hotels? Sure, it may have something to do with the fact that you’re on vacation. But there’s another secret weapon ushering you into dreamland—and it’s not the piece of chocolate on your pillow.
Certain scents have been shown to evoke positive feelings, sensations, and memories—that’s why high-end hotels often diffuse them throughout their premises. As soon as you plop down onto a fluffy hotel bed, your nose might be instantly delighted by aromas—like green fig or tart grapefruit—that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Even if you don’t plan on living full-time at a hotel anytime soon, you can fill your home with 100-percent all-natural essential oils that’ll soothe your body and mind all the same. Just pick up an at-home diffuser and set it up in your bedroom for prime relaxation. Current Thrive Market favorite RareESSENCE Natural’s Dream Diffuser comes with a blend of comforting oils—lavender, armoise, and clary sage.
All you do is drop the reeds (or sticks) in the bottle and let them soak up the oil. For an extra-intoxicating burst of aroma, try rotating the reeds from time to time—especially after the first hour of use.
Take a deep breath, exhale, and enjoy for up to six months!
