Our friends at English Rose Suites and Health Partners Center for Memory and Aging,  are working together to gather research on the use of lavender and sleep.

– Doctors and scientists have long known that lavender can act as a calming agent, with hospitals giving patients little lavender patches after surgery to help with anxiety.

Now, researchers are looking to take that concept one step further to see if it can actually help people sleep better, especially those with dementia who already are prone to sleep problems.
