Bad Sleep & Lavender Not Helping

Help please?

I'm not sleeping well due to a few reasons and I've been sleeping with lavender but it doesn't seem to be helping. Any other suggestions out there?

Would warmer more comforting scents work or cooler and relaxing scents?

(It may depend on the season as well)

clean sheets
shower before bedtime
lavender, chamomile, or other soothing herbal infusion
lower your caffeine intake - this includes coffees, chocolate, tea, and various drugs [both illegal and medicine], whatever the case may be
stay away from electronics 1 hour before bedtime
play some soothing music in the background [the only exception to the above]
read boring books..?

just the most common solutions related to bad sleeping habits.
but be aware it may take some time until these solutions pay off, so dont expect right away results.
if you need immediate results, talk to a therapist

the best solution though would be to separate yourself from the reasons keeping you awake, if possible. stress is the enemy of [quality] sleep :(

@RedEmbers I'm not sure what you mean to be honest. Can you give examples?

@Mused Yes there are a few things I had forgotten about in there so thanks.

Seems the Blue blocker glasses I ordered online, about $23, are working fine...
in the eve I wear them as I'm on my laptop or watching TV.
Sorry, this is not about scents.

"Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by riding daily in a balloon of divine perception.

Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones...Meditate unceasingly,
that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence" ~~Lahiri Mahasaya, the guru of Yogananda's guru.

I'll text in Navy Blue when I'm speaking as a Mod. :)

Hello :)

A single drop of lavender on your pillow can help. I use a few more drops in my diffuser, but I've read that too much lavender can have the opposite effect.

Chamomile (Roman) is one of my favourites, so I would also suggest that too!

Other oils: Mandarin, Linden Blossom, Clary Sage, Marjoram, Cistus, Valerian, Hops, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Lemon ~ list from 'The Fragrant Mind' by Valerie Ann Worwood

I can imagine that combination helping, astralwanderer. The warm deep tones of cedarwood and the lighter bittersweet tones of Frankincense. (Close your eyes and you are in the deep woods!) I had never thought of those two as being sleep-helpers, but I can clearly visualise both scents and am sure they both would create a steady calm.
That, plus low lighting in the evening, plus listening to some sweet gentle music....

I've heard of cutting an onion in half and leaving it in an open jar next to your bed at night. I've not tried it myself.

Lavender is certainly best, you can try Roman Chatomile or Sandalwood
