The Sense of Smell Never Sleeps – Flowers for your bedroom

A recent study conducted by German Scientists has brought international attention to the power of flowers for better sleep. Participants reported having better rest and sweeter dreams when exposed to the smell of flowers.

Professor Tim Jacob, an expert in smell and taste at Cardiff University tells BBC News, “Smell is the only sense that doesn’t ’sleep’…other senses have to pass through the ‘gate’ of the thalamus, which is closed when we sleep.”

This study is a good reminder for us to pick flowers instead of counting sheep. Nature has always provided solutions for our ailments. Wise medicine women and men from folk traditions and indigenous healing practices have used flowers as remedies for sleep issues amongst other health concerns. Now science is confirming these truths.
