{Product Review} Aromatherapy with the ZzzQuil Scented Sleep Aid

When I first opened the pack, the fragrance was pretty strong. The main scents are lavender, chamomile and cedarwood.  I thought it smelled more medicinal at first but then after a few minutes of plugging it in, the fragrance was definitely more pleasurable. Included in the box is a sleep enhancer (wall plug in) and scented Zzz pads.  You simply put one or two pads into the sleep enhancer, choose your setting and put that into your outlet.  It doesn't take long for the fragrance to permeate the room and then it lasted through the rest of the night and into the next day.  I used both pads the first night.  There is an adjustable slider that you can use to control the amount of fragrance, but I couldn't tell if it made a difference or not.

The second night, I just used one pad and thought maybe I wouldn't sleep as well....but I slept pretty much the same way. The fragrance the second night was not as strong and more pleasant.

I've been one busy woman these past few weeks, with BASH coming up and the hustle and bustle of the holidays and just life in general, I am physically exhausted.  As tired as I am, I always seem to have trouble falling asleep and then have a restful sleep throughout the night.  So, when I received a complimentary ZzzQuil™ Scented Sleep Aid through Influenster to test out and review, I was anxious to give this product a go!  Now, I've tried other aromatherapy plug ins before and didn't feel like they really were effective, so, I wasn't sure what to expect this time - but I was hopeful.

I've always been a night owl and just generally have trouble drifting off to sleep. I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to use something that didn't put me to sleep medically to help me out. I must say, this actually worked. I plugged it in and slept straight through the night, couldn't believe it. My kids even woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and when I normally would be jolted out of my sleep, I didn't even hear them....(thank God, my husband did).

My only problem with the plug is is you have to touch the pad with your fingers and the fragrance is really strong and it stays on your hands. I had to wash my hands a few times to get rid of the smell as best I could.  Other than that, I love it and recommend it to anyone who needs to relax or have a restful night's sleep.
