Jasmine a Restful Scent

Showering with jasmine-scented soap before bedtime or sleeping in a jasmine-scented room helped people sleep more soundly, say researchers at Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia. They tossed and turned less, felt more refreshed the next morning and were more alert throughout the day than people who slept in lavender-scented or fragrance-free rooms.
