  1. I agree. I have tried aromatherapy patches with great success. I do think, however, that they are best used as part of a wider strategy to reduce ones stress rather than relying on patches alone.

  2. I can attest that lavender oil works. I hadn’t heard of using it before until a few years ago when a good friend recommended that I try it out for a little extra aid. Its amazing what alternative medicine can do and how much people generally don’t know about it.

    1. Thanks LeAnna. I think lavender works too. You are also right that not many people know about alternative products that are available as an alternative to those who don’t want to go down the conventional route.

  3. I use a spray of lavender on my pillow case. It does soothes me at night, especially on very hectic days. Great ideas Ilana.

  4. I’m a slave to medication… to wake me up, to help me sleep… I’ve had chronic insomnia my whole life and it’s just comforting to know that I can take a pill whenever I want to sleep and it works every time. I’m VERY sensitive to scents, but I’ll keep your tips in mind Ilana. Thanks!
