Lavender is a widely known flower for its relaxation properties.
Bear in mind that the lavender species of lavendula augustifolia is the recommended species that is suitable for pregnant women.
But do you know how is lavender helping you to relax and fall asleep?
Why is sleep important?
Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.
Sleep helps your brain work properly. While you’re sleeping, your brain is preparing for the next day. It’s forming new pathways to help you learn and remember information.
Sleep also supports healthy growth and development.
Sleep helps maintain a healthy balance of the hormones that make you feel hungry or full. When you don’t get enough sleep, you feel hungrier than when you’re well-rested.
Your immune system relies on sleep to stay healthy as well.
Lack of quality sleep is reported to be related to diseases such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, heart diseases.
It affects your quality of work the next day and often comes with signs of headache, drowsiness, lack of ability to focus.
So quality sleep is very important to keep your body and your mind going.
