CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Infusion Brands International, Inc. (Infusion Brands) (Pink Sheets:INBI) and Therascent Products LLC (Therascent) today announced a licensing agreement whereby Infusion Brands holds the worldwide exclusive license to manufacture and sell products that incorporate Therascent’s patented technology, which include the Sleep Scentsations brand and its flagship product, SnoreRx, as well as the entire Therascent product line.

“Therascent spent a long time looking for the right partner to help educate the world about our patented products, which enhance the air people breathe while they sleep, providing a better night’s rest so they can lead more fulfilling and productive lives,” said Lynne Sammons, president of Therascent Products LLC. “This is a significant step forward for Therascent. We’re proud to be working with Infusion Brands to help us achieve our long term goals.”

According to BCC Research, the worldwide sleep aids market reached revenues of $25 billion in 2009, and are anticipated to reach $33.2 billion in 2014. Sleep Scentsations’ patented sleep aid products will look to gain market share by leveraging the unique combination of a natural and non-invasive solution to combat sleeplessness and its side effects, such as sleep deprivation, irritability and drowsiness.

Sleep Scentsations products are a newly patented, non-invasive sleep aid delivery system to distribute essential oils without the mess that often comes with essential oil based products. This patented technology consists of a soft cushioned pillow liner, infused with a combination of natural aromatherapy essential oils, which lasts for 4 to 6 nights. As you sleep, the air you breathe is naturally enhanced by the essential oils to provide you with the proper night’s rest, relaxation, and relief from common sleep disorders such as snoring and insomnia.

“We’re very excited to bring Therascent Products into the Infusion Brands family,” said Bob DeCecco, chairman and CEO of Infusion Brands. “This is a terrific brand that is well positioned to realize its potential by leveraging direct to consumer marketing efforts such as direct response television, radio, print, catalogue, ecommerce as well as traditional retail channels of distribution worldwide. We believe this is an exceptional product that could offer relief to millions of people around the world who suffer from poor and inadequate sleep.”

Infusion Brands will launch Sleep Scentsations’ flagship product, SnoreRx, via a direct response television campaign during the first quarter of 2012. The patented SnoreRx pillow liner is infused with a therapeutic blend of essential oils formulated to provide relief from snoring without the need for aggravating nose strips, bad tasting sprays or cumbersome mouthpieces.

“Infusion Brands provides marketing insight, performance and commitment to delivering high quality products to its customers,” Sammons continued. “With their approach to building global brands through direct response media channels, we are confident that we will be able to realize the global potential of the Sleep Scentsations brand and our entire line of “Rx” products, beginning with SnoreRx.”

You snore when the flow of air from your mouth or nose to your lungs makes the tissues of the airway vibrate. This usually is caused by a blockage (obstruction) or narrowing in the nose, mouth, or throat (airway).

When you inhale during sleep, air enters the mouth or nose and passes across the soft palate (the back of the roof of the mouth) on its way to the lungs. The back of the mouth—where the tongue and upper throat meet the soft palate and uvula—is collapsible. If this area collapses, the airway becomes narrow or blocked. The narrowed or blocked passage disturbs the airflow, which causes the soft palate and uvula to vibrate and knock against the back of the throat, causing snoring.

The tonsils and adenoids may also vibrate. The narrower the airway is, the more the tissue vibrates, and the louder the snoring is.

You do not snore when you are awake because the muscles of the throat hold the tissues in the back of the mouth in place. When you sleep, the muscles relax, allowing the tissues to collapse.
Snoring may be caused by:

  • Enlarged tissues in the nose, mouth, or throat. Enlarged tonsils are a frequent cause of snoring in children.
  • Blocked nasal passages, which make it more difficult to inhale. This affects the tissue of the throat, which may pull together during the extra effort it takes to breathe, which in turn narrows the airway. A blocked nasal passage can be caused by an upper respiratory infection (such as a cold), an allergy, or nasal polyps.
  • A deviated nasal septum, which disturbs airflow in the nose.
  • Loss of muscle tone in the throat, which makes it easier for tissue to collapse. This can be due to aging or lack of fitness.

Other things that may contribute to snoring include:

  • Drinking alcohol, which depresses the part of the brain that regulates breathing. This can overly relax the tongue and throat muscles, causing them to partially block air movement.
  • Obesity. Fat in the throat may narrow the airway.
  • Medicines that relax you or make you drowsy, such as those taken for allergies, depression, or anxiety.

If you snore or sleep with someone who does, then you know that it’s no laughing matter and can keep you up ALL NIGHT.  If you are facing a situation where you can’t sleep because you or someone you are sleeping with snores loudly, don’t panic and run to purchase an over-the-counter spray or pill. Fortunately there is a drug-free and Non Addictive remedy that can help stop snoring.

SNORE RX is one of Sleep Scentsations patented sleep aids that contains a therapeutic blend of essential oils formulated to suppress snoring and provide a more restful nights sleep.

This season has been tough on sinuses! Many people struggle with sinus infections, sinus pressure, sinus headaches, etc. After sending a few samples to a blogger for review, one of the comments she had was that her mom felt that sleeping with Sleep Scentsations helped clear up her sinuses!

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses that can cause painful headaches and tenderness in the face. To help decongest the sinuses and relieve the inflammation, there are a number of aromatic herbs that you can use in an aromatherapy treatment. The use of aromatherapy for healing dates back 5,000 years to the Egyptians and their use of aromatic herbs for incense burning. Today, aromatherapy is an effective way to heal emotions and physical distress.


Lavender essential oil is a nervine that promotes relaxation and helps with sinus headaches due to its analgesic properties. It is especially beneficial in treating sinuses that are blocked with phlegm and is an antiseptic, defending your immunological system against airborne viruses.

We love this because it is a NATURAL, Medication-Free way to help clear up those annoying sinuses.  Using Sleep Scentsations’ Aromatherapy Pillow Liners while sleeping not only helps you sleep better, it’s healing your body without you having to do anything! Think about it, by using the Pillow Liners, the healing properties of Aromatherapy are being inhaled right into the area of the nose and face you are trying to alleviate!

The remarkable and very scary changes our bodies undergo during pregnancy lead to many discomforts.  Just the morning sickness and fatigue is enough to lower a pregnant woman’s spirits.  And since nearly all medicines and traditional remedies are off-limits to expecting moms, natural methods come as a great relief to help ease these symptoms.

While some pregnant women feel great during pregnancy, this is unfortunately not the case for many.  In addition to proper nutrition and regular exercise, the use of herbs and aromatherapy during the later part of your pregnancy can alleviate many common complaints.

Note: as recommended for most things, it is important that you do not use essential oils during the first trimester of your pregnancy. However, they have many wonderful uses in the last two trimesters and especially during labor.  Most importantly, inhaling essential oils rather than directly applying them to your skin,  is the safest method  to positively affect your overall physical and emotional well-being.

The most frequently used scents for pregnancy are:

  • Lavender
    restores unbalanced states to a more harmonious state, and has been said to strengthen contractions. Also helps calm the irritated, fretful or nervous person.
  • Bergamot A “ray of sunshine.” This is said to be uplifting, light and refreshing.

Sleep Scentsations Aromatherapy Pillow Liners are the safest aromatherapy diffusers and you can take them with you everywhere you go.  Including the hospital – ANYTHING to help with that crazy thing called Labor!

The trend toward natural health consciousness in humans is gaining popularity in the animal world, too. Many veterinarians are beginning to introduce natural therapies in their practice, including osteopathy, homeopathy, acupuncture, massage, flower essences and more recently aromatherapy. Aromatherapists and vets have begun to recognize how animals can benefit from this wonderful natural therapy.

For humans and animals alike, essential oils are powerfully antiseptic, detoxifying and revitalizing, thus increasing resistance to disease while strengthening the immune system. Essential oils can also be used to control pet odors and to purify the air from dust, dander and allergens.

Once inhaled, the large nasal cavity of the canine gives plenty of area for the aromatic essential oil molecules to be absorbed into the bloodstream, not only through the nasal cavity, but also the sinuses, throat and lungs. It is in this way that essential oils act so quickly, exhibiting varying degrees of a calming effect. Perfect for super hyper dogs and to also calm barking!

Sleep Scentsations Aromatherapy Pillow Liners are the perfect choice when thinking about trying aromatherapy with your dog or cat.

Hyper Dog?  Try Relaxing Lavender

Smelly Dog?  Try White Tea and lily

Dog that is stuck in the house but  loves the outdoors?  Try Fresh Cut Grass

Just stick our soft liners on your pet’s pillow or bed and observe the subtle and positive changes they demonstrate!  We guarantee your whole family will love it!
