Aromarest is ideal for helping you create a sleep routine, and we recommend using it nightly. This will help your body establish circadian rhythms so you can sleep better, night after night. If you are traveling, you can use the app for sound and will be able to rely on your body’s natural circadian rhythms to help you stay in sync.
We supplied SLEEP and WAKE oils to get you started, but we encourage you to use your own oils as you continue to experiment with your Aromarest. We chose a lavender essential oil to help you sleep and a citrus oil blend to help you wake gently. As you buy replacements, keep in mind that a 5 mL (milliliter) bottle of oil contains about 100 drops. Therefore, a standard size vial of 15 mL is suitable for 50 or more uses.
The inability to fall asleep and stay asleep is a chronic problem in the developed world due to many things, including stress, the proliferation of electronic light and other personal and environmental factors. We believe in helping people everywhere sleep better, and we created the Aromarest to help you establish routines and create an environment in your home that’s ideal for sleep. Many users have reported sleeping better night after night. However, we are all unique. If you continue to have problems sleeping after experimenting with Aromarest settings and your choice of therapeutic essential oils, we encourage you to talk with a health professional.
Aromarest uses ultrasonic diffuser technology. The system, hidden carefully in the base of the lamp, creates ultrasonic vibrations (sound waves that vibrate at a frequency higher than human ears can detect)). These waves agitate the water and separate the water particles. Those negatively charged particles become lighter than air, causing a light mist. When you add essential oils to the WAKE and SLEEP diffuser bays, the oil's particles are carried into the air along with the particles of water.
We recommend using 4-5 drops in each diffuser bay when you fill it with water, but we encourage you to experiment to find the concentration that’s right for you. You can also choose different mist output settings using the Aromarest app to customize your experience.
When you use distilled water and 100 percent pure essential oils, cleaning needs will be minimal. If you experience mineral buildup or allow water to stagnate in the unit, more cleaning may be necessary. You can safely rinse the bays with water, taking care not to get the electronics inside the base wet. You can also use a soft cloth dampened with vinegar to wipe out the unit and remove buildup or run the unit with a few drops of vinegar to clean the internal workings.
Yes! In fact, we recommend using citrus oils in the WAKE bay to ease you into morning. The plastics used in the Aromarest are specially formulated for use with your choice of therapeutic essential oils.
The million color LEDs built into the Aromarest light up gradually, over up to 30 minutes before your wake time. This gentle waking can elevate cortisol levels to help you wake, naturally. Combined with your choice of scent and sounds, you will wake on time and wake well. With daily use, your body will establish a sleeping and waking routine that optimizes your health and your time spent between the sheets. Good sleep has been proven to help you feel more energetic, increase your productivity and ability to learn and much more.
The app comes preloaded with a variety of sounds (such as ocean waves or birds chirping) to help you fall asleep, stay asleep and wake refreshed. You can also use sounds downloaded to your phone for any stage of sleep. On Apple devices, opt for anything from your Apple Music library. An Android devices, opt for anything from your Music folder.
