What is the connection between sleep quality and aroma therapy?
Michael J Breus, PhD, Sleep Doctor speaks about the ancient connection between sleep and scent. According to him, the use of essential oils for medicinal purposes goes back to early Egyptian, Chinese, and Roman societies. Hippocrates himself studied the effects of essential oils and was a proponent of their healing, health-promoting properties.
Aromatherapy is a modern term for this ancient practice. For years, scientists have been conducting studies into the sleep-promoting, stress-relieving, pain-reducing and mood-regulating benefits of essential oils.
