Like all Ascents® formulas, Sleep No. 91 contains only 100% pure essential oils—all tested to be allergen free—resulting in a balanced, effective aromatherapeutic blend.
The active ingredients in Sleep No. 91 have been studied in clinical environments as treatments for the prevention of restlessness and insomnia.
Lavender aromatherapy in particular is thought to work due to the effect of the organic compounds that comprise the oil -- such as linalool -- on human physiology. In fact, It is believed that the amygdala and hippocampus (the parts of the brain’s limbic system that control emotions and emotional behavior, including the sleep response) are most affected by inhaled lavender; this makes Sleep No. 91 an ideal therapy for those suffering from sleeplessness or frequent night awakenings.
Lavender essential oil is naturally extracted from the plant’s flowers via gentle steam distillation, leaving the delicate, active compounds found in all essential oils intact and able to consistently produce the desired therapeutic outcomes.
I am a woman 66 years of age and wake up often during the night...I keep a Sleep ascents™ at my bedside. It is very convenient to use and it works. It helps me fall back asleep gently, and there are no undesirable side effects.
