Sleep on a Lavender Infused Pillow for a Calmer Night’s Sleep


lavender scented pillow for relaxation

Do you have a hard time falling asleep at night? If so, you’re not alone. For this reason, many people are searching for a way to make their much needed slumber come a lot easier. If you’ve already purchased a high-quality mattress, turned down your thermostat, and put up room-darkening curtains, the answer may lay somewhere you haven’t yet thought of. We’re talking about what your room smells like!

The Effects of Scents 

Studies have shown that aromatherapy does indeed have an effect on brainwaves and can alter behavior. For instance, some scents make us hungry. Some scents remind us of Christmas. Some scents wake us up and make us feel more alert. Did you know peppermint makes brainstorming more productive? Lavender is a scent that soothes us and makes us feel calm.

Aromatherapy has been shown to carry many benefits in terms of wellness and stress relief. A lavender sachet next to your bed or the smell of a scented candle can do wonders for relieving stress and help you unwind from your day because lavender is calming. Lavender is associated with feelings of contentment, improved cognitive performance, and a relaxed mood. Lavender can be a great choice for anyone trying to settle down for sleep, especially if their day hasn’t been one that was particularly relaxed or calm.

Our Lavender Pillow Options

Lavender has been shown to reduce cortisol levels, meaning you’ll feel less stressed. The best way to take advantage of the calming effects of lavender is with scented pillows. We offer a variety of aromatherapy pillow choices, including those in a lavender scent. You can always trust City Mattress to carry the top products from the industry’s best brands, and this extends to our pillow options. A few of the lavender scented pillow options our Sleep Experts recommend include:

Blu Sleep Lavender Gel Memory Foam Pillow

This lavender scented pillow features ultra-breathable, gel-infused memory foam, ventilated for increased airflow. It is a high-profile gel memory foam pillow, which means it is ideal for side sleepers. The medium-firm comfort feel delivers proper spinal alignment and contouring relief for an aching neck and shoulders. The infusion of the lavender oil promotes a sense of calmness and wellness, while the refreshing bamboo cover allows the aroma to circulate fully.

Classic Brand Lavender Infused Ventilated Foam Pillow

Minimizing pressure points between the shoulders, neck, and cervical vertebrae, the high-quality memory foam construction in this pillow helps you sleep in a more natural position and wake refreshed. Because it is an aromatherapy pillow, it has a ventilated design that offers high airflow, temperature regulation, and a supportive, medium-firm feel.

Malouf Zoned Active Dough® Pillow

This pillow actually comes in three scents, including Lavender. The ActiveDough® foam offers the quick-response feel and superior support of latex, plus the cushion and contouring of memory foam. Designed with Zoned Technology™ to relieve pressure points, the pillow has larger holes in the center of the pillow to cradle your head and smaller holes around the perimeter to support your neck. The breathable Tencel™ cover aids in obtaining the perfect sleeping temperature. This means it not only smells great, it will feel great to lie your head on too!

This is far from a complete list! We carry options made from different gels and foams, as well as options in a travel side and shaped to have a cutout for your shoulder. You won’t believe how many amazing scented pillows we carry!

It’s Not Just Your Bedroom Pillow!

If you already have a bedroom pillow that you love and don’t want to make the switch, you don’t have to miss out on the relaxing properties of lavender. A lavender scented pillow isn’t your only option. Instead, opt for aromatherapy scented sachets. We sell options made from PureCare that last for up to three months and are made with natural ingredients and essential oils.

Don’t forget to take your lavender with you! Many people have a harder time falling asleep while traveling as opposed to being in their own perfect bed. That’s why we recommend the Malouf Travel Zoned Dough® Scented Neck Pillow. It features an ergonomic design for natural support of the head, neck, and shoulders. This way, you can sleep in a relaxed position while smelling lavender. This travel neck pillow is sure to allow you to fall into a restorative sleep, whether you are sitting on an airplane or in the backseat during a long road trip.

Make today the day you finally look into the benefits of lavender. When you order directly through our website, your lavender scented pillow will arrive at your doorstep very soon. You’ll fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply very soon.
