Best Fragrances for Sleep

Sleep is a hot topic at the moment and getting enough of it is vital to helping our mood and wellbeing. The key to getting a good night’s sleep is having a great bedtime routine and scent is a key part of this. Working a relaxing fragrance into your night-time routine can help you to relax and drift off into a happy sleep. Associating a particular fragrance with sleep also helps tell the brain it’s time to unwind and relax. Here at Aery Living, we thought we’d put together a list of our five favourite fragrances that are perfect for getting a good night’s sleep!


Sleep Happy.

Sleep Happy is a new addition to Aery Living and has been perfectly created to send you off to sleep happy, hence the name. Calming scents of lavender, chamomile and bergamot have all been perfectly combined to send you off to sleep feeling positively dreamy! Chamomile is a well-known medicinal herb and is usually used in tea to create a calming mood. Lighting this candle and curling up with your favourite book is sure to create a cosy sanctuary that’s perfect for sleep.

Lavender is a recurring scent in our bedtime candles and has been used to improve sleep quality for hundreds of years! Dream Catcher is available in a room mist which is perfect for spritzing on pillows before sleep and then breathing in the dreamy scent to send you off to sleep.
