The Vegan Potionry’s Hydrating Sleep Blend is perfect for dry and flaky skin. The Sleep Blend aids with relaxation and is intentionally designed to foster a calming atmosphere and help you fall asleep easier.
Studies have shown that some essential oils have an impact on your Olfactory system, the system relating to smell, and the Limbic system, which is your “emotional brain.” Certain herbs have an effect on the Amygdala, which is part of the Limbic system and known as the emotional center of the brain.
Certain herbs work through the Olfactory system to cause the brain to secrete Neurotransmitters, such as Dopamine and Serotonin, which can elevate mood. Not only are these Neurotransmitters needed to make you feel calm and relaxed, but Serotonin is also needed to produce Melatonin, the hormone responsible for making you feel sleepy at bedtime.
