Did you know that the humble Christmas Tree could be stopping you from getting the perfect nights sleep? Here are the festive scents keeping you up and the one you need to have!

Christmas Clementines

We all know that Christmas is a wonderful time of the year but it’s also a hectic time of year. With cards to write, gifts to buy and the dreaded wrapping to be done, it’s no wonder that many of us complain about lack of sleep and according to research carried out by Dormeo it could be all those festive scents we love stopping us from a wonderful nights rest.

Yes! everything from the glorious scent of Pigs in Blankets to Clementines is all likely to stop us from dosing off, however, it’s not all bad news as scents such as chocolate and Frankincense can all help us hit the pillow!

Pigs in Blankets

Could it be mood-enhancing scents that help us to drift off to sleep or could it be those which keep us alert as we prepare for the arrival of friends and family over the festive season?

Keep alert over the festive season with these winter spice scents, such as nutmeg, cloves, ginger and cinnamon. Needing a good night’s sleep? Why not treat yourself to Frankincense or Stuffing, along with some tongue-tingling chocolate treats.
