Fresh cuts may be few and far between in the winter months, but you can turn to the dried variety to enjoy some flower power. The scent of lavender has been shown to calm the body and aid in sleep.

Research out of Wesleyan University found that sniffing the buds before bedtime increased the amount of deep sleep for participants, while another study presented at the European Sleep Research Society discovered that the smell offered relief for insomnia sufferers.

Fuel your sleep and your dry winter skin by mixing a few drops of lavender oil in your lotion before you hit the sheets.
