This blend of essential oils was developed to create a synergy that promotes sleep. It harmonizes the three olfactory notes - head, heart and base - to form a balanced blend of fresh and floral notes. This combination of premium quality essential oils is known for their sweet scents and therapeutics properties that facilitate relaxation, an essential criterion for finding sleep.
The essential oil of fine lavender has a calming effect and a must in aromatherapy. It relies on the Roman chamomile to promote rest. Citrus essential oils, such as mandarin and petitgrain, add a note of relaxing freshness. Marjoram and verbena, combined with clary sage's more amber scent, calm anxiety and reduce stress. The final notes of rosewood, cedar, and vetiver create a mind-soothing complement for a good night's sleep.
Excerpts from the book "Essential Oils - For Cooking and Wellness" (Mélinda Wilson, Éditions Fides, 2010)
Marjoram (Origanum majorana) "Marjoram's warm scent puts you in a good mood and promotes relaxation, which may explain its popularity. (...) The Greeks and Romans once used it as a perfume, and it was they who spread it throughout Europe."
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) "Soothing and antiseptic, lavender is versatile and its many uses in perfumery and alternative medicine are countless."
Bergamot (Citrus aurantium bergamia) "Bergamot owes its reputation (...) to an Italian perfumer, creator of aqua mirabilis, the famous Eau de Cologne. Its fruity, slightly spicy scent is subtle, making it the ideal companion to stronger aromatic notes."
Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) "Like other citrus fruits, it is known for its soothing properties. The essential oil, extracted from the peel, has a fresh, tangy and slightly sweet smell (...)."
