Social therapist and yoga instructor Jillian Amodio said that inhaling the calming aroma of lavender can signal the brain that aids in relaxation and help regulate sleep and anxiety.

Jeff Kahn, co-founder and CEO of Rise Science, advocated that there is no clear study that proves the effectiveness of lavender spray but they are generally regarded as harmless and hence can be tested.

Individual responses to aromatherapy can vary, and factors such as the quality and concentration of the lavender oil used in the spray may also play a role in its effectiveness.

Although lavender pillow sprays may not be effective for everyone, they are worth considering as part of your bedtime routine.
