30. Try Lavender for Better Sleep
People have used lavender for centuries as a “cure-all” for whatever ailments they had. Nevertheless, science proves that there is one thing that lavender is beneficial for, and that’s helping you to fall asleep. Lavender oil, specifically, has been shown to help people fall asleep, and it can improve both the length and quality of a person’s sleep so that you feel more refreshed the next day. Lavender works on calming the central nervous system and promotes the slow-wave sleep produced by the brain. The great thing about lavender is that you can incorporate it in different ways into your life. You can use the oil in diffusers in your bedroom, apply it directly to the skin, or use a few drops in a hot bath right before bed.
