CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Infusion Brands International, Inc.

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.

Infusion Brands will launch Sleep Scentsations’ flagship product, SnoreRx, via a direct response television campaign during the first quarter of 2012.

A recent study done on snoring and sleep disorders just might have you in shock! Besides that fact that most people who snore are constantly buying the next great snore-reducer, snoring can actually hurt you terribly financially.

snoring and other sleep disorders may be costing you more than you think

Tip

Study finds unemployment rates were 30% higher for people with sleep disorders.

Lab Report

Snoring makes you poorer – and we’re not just talking about the money your partner spends on earplugs.  Though many consider snoring to be a nighttime problem, it has real consequences on your waking life, too, particularly for your wallet.  New research demonstrates that chronic snorers earn less money than people with normal sleep habits.

Since the health effects are already known, researchers in Denmark sought to find how snoring and other breathing-related complications affected people financially. For their sleep problems alone, snorers spent about $1,000 extra per year, sleep apnea sufferers paid more than $5,000, and those with obesity hypoventilation syndrome exceeded a whopping $15,000.

What’s worse is that the patients with these conditions are less equipped to pay for this healthcare.  Unemployment rates were 30 percent higher for people with these sleep disorders. Of the people who did have jobs, they earned significantly lower paychecks than people without sleep problems.  Undoubtedly, the drowsiness that results from these conditions reduces productivity, thus affecting how people are compensated.

Even though treatment of snoring and sleep apnea may be costly, it appears worthwhile to nip it in the bud.  Treating and conquering the problem early could save you from years of lost jobs and wages.

For $15.99 you can get snoring relief with Sleep Scentsations’ SNORE RX formula!  It could change your life!

NO More worries about taking addictive Sleep Medications!

Aromatherapy is commonly used to alleviate stress, but it’s also useful in aiding sleep and treating sleep disorders. Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils to comfort and heal, and it is one of the fastest growing alternative therapies in the Western world. In aromatherapy, the essential oils are used externally rather than taken internally.

Essential oils are said to stimulate an area of the brain, known as the limbic system, that controls your moods and emotions. Sleep is a crucial component of human life, and all mammal, reptile and bird life need it. Sleep helps to refresh, restore and heal the body and the brain.

How Much Sleep Do You Need?

According to webmd.com, a typical adult needs between seven and eight hours of sleep per night, although some people only need five hours and others need 10. When a person runs a “sleep deficit,” meaning they have not had enough sleep in previous nights, then they will require more sleep in subsequent nights.

Sleep Quality vs. Quantity

Although the quantity of sleep is important, quality of sleep is also significant. According to the Better Sleep Council of Canada, six hours of uninterrupted sleep is better than eight hours of disturbed sleep. Disturbed sleep usually includes periods of wakefulness and/or periods of tossing and turning. It can also include difficulty getting to sleep or difficulty waking up.

What Causes Sleep Problems?

There are many causes of sleep problems including:

  • Pain – Pain can cause difficulty in getting to sleep and staying asleep. Pain medications may help alleviate this but some have added side effects.
  • Poor Diet – Caffeine, alcohol and a large snack before bed can all cause sleep disturbances. Drinking any fluids before bedtime can make some people prone to wake to go to the bathroom.
  • Bedroom Temperature –  A bedroom which is too warm or too cold can affect sleep. The ideal bedroom temperature is about 60º
  • Bed – Uncomfortable beds can cause back pain as well as make people need to toss and turn more than usual. Ensure the bed is no more than 10 years old and is appropriately designed and manufactured.
  • Noise and Light – People sleep best when their environment is quiet and dark. Remove any sources of noise or light.
  • Snoring – Either partner’s snoring can cause sleep disturbance.
  • Anxiety – Emotional turmoil, anxiety and stress can all cause a person to lie awake worrying or wake up suddenly and be unable to return to sleep while the mind is racing.

Did you know that Aromatherapy could actually help you quit smoking cigarettes? Why spend hundreds of dollars on a patch? When you could be spending your money on relaxation and better sleep right?

What most people do not know is the fact that Aromatherapy (the inhaling of essential oils to heal our bodies and influence emotions) dates back thousands of years. Aromatic oils were actually used by the royal families of ancient Egypt. Today, science is confirming what some cultures have known for centuries: scent can arouse feelings, suppress urges and even provide curative benefit to certain physical ailments.

Simply by breathing the aromatherapy while you are sleeping, you send scent molecules into your system where they entirely bypass the brain-blood barrier and move directly to you brain’s olfactory nerve. There they are received by the limbic system, your body’s control center for emotions, memory, stress response, metabolic function and sexual arousal.

Many people feel the effects immediately and the best part is that Aromatherapy is completely safe and non addictive, so feel free to use as often as you would like!

Aromatherapy and essential oils change moods and influence how you feel. Scents that are believed to help relieve the effects of nicotine addiction are lavender, bergamot, and chamomile.  A number of people have found that bergamot takes away smoking cravings for cigarettes, helping them give up smoking more easily.

Again, keep in mind the emotional moods and symptoms you experience everyday.  Now you might want to consider using a product like Sleep Scentsations when you are feeling aggravated (especially after a long day of work) because you are trying to quit and you are feeling withdrawals.  Inhaling a calming scent like Ginger and Amber will help you relax and fall asleep before you may even reach for that cigarette!

Vaporizer

Using essential oils is a simple but very effective way to help you through something that is so challenging.  Why not spend $20 bucks for a lifetime of better breathing?

Losing weight while you sleep seems to sound too good to be true.   It sounds like something you’d hear on a late night infomercial — just around the time you are reaching for that bag of cookies because, well, you can’t sleep.



But as wild as the idea sounds, according to WebMD substantial medical evidence suggests some fascinating links between sleep and weight. Researchers say that how much you sleep and quite possibility the quality of your sleep may silently orchestrate a symphony of hormonal activity tied to your appetite.

While doctors have long known that many hormones are affected by sleep,  it wasn’t until recently that appetite entered the picture. What brought it into focus, was research on the hormones leptin and ghrelin. First, doctors say that both can influence our appetite. And studies show that production of both may be influenced by how much or how little we sleep.

In fact, have you ever experienced a sleepless night followed by a day when no matter what you ate you never felt full or satisfied? If so, then you have experienced the workings of leptin and ghrelin.



Leptin and ghrelin are two hormones that have been recognized to have a major influence on energy balance. Leptin is a mediator of long-term regulation of energy balance, suppressing food intake and thereby inducing weight loss. Ghrelin on the other hand is a fast-acting hormone, seemingly playing a role in meal initiation.

Ghrelin and leptin are both produced in the body. It has been found that thinner people have higher levels of ghrelin production during certain nighttime hours which is lacking in people who suffer from obesity. People who fail to sleep properly over-stimulate their ghrelin production which increases the desire for food. Simultaneously, lack of sleep reduces the production of leptin which is the body’s appetite suppressant.

So in short, if you don’t get enough sleep, the hormones in your body get all out of whack and you think that you’re hungry when really you don’t need that food. Caving in to such hunger will lead to excess weight gain.

So now it is safe to say the 3 necessary factors for a healthy weight are:

  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • and SLEEP!



Just another reason to try a natural and inexpensive sleep aid product like Sleep Scentsations Aromatherapy Pillow Scents.

Ranging in six categories including Botanical, Wellness, Fresh, Aromatherapy, Exotic and Sensual, each pillow liner provides a natural and drug-free method that helps aid sleep, relaxation, and promote better overall health and well-being just by breathing while you are sleeping!

Unfortunately more and more Americans are choosing to ignore the known saying “don’t lose sleep over it” and allow stress to keep them awake at night. For the majority of Americans stress is what quite obviously disturbs their sleep. Work related issues, family and children-related issues are at the top the list of what keeps America up at night.


Americans who bring stress into the bedroom aren’t the only ones finding it hard to fall asleep at night,  it affects their partners as well. According to a Better Sleep Council survey, 45 percent of Americans say they toss and turn throughout the night because of their partner’s sleeplessness over stress.

“When dealing with stress, prioritize the things that you can control,” says Sullivan. “For instance, you can control your sleep environment. Be sure you are sleeping in a cool, quiet, dark room on a comfortable and supportive mattress. Improving the quality of your sleep gives you more energy and keeps you focused to tackle the demands we face every day.”


A product like Sleep Scentsations’ Aromatherapy Pillow Scents Liners is another option that allows you to have control and improve your sleeping environment just as recommended by The Better Sleep Council! And according to their survey, a product like this will not only help you fall asleep easier, it will help your partner sleep easier!

The pillow liners are an ideal method to enhance a great nights’ sleep because they can be personalized and taken anywhere, allowing you to inhale the appropriate fragrance whether you  need to reduce stress, lift a depression, hasten a good night’s sleep, soothe your soul, or find more energy.

Ranging in six categories including Botanical, Wellness, Fresh, Aromatherapy, Exotic and Sensual, each pillow liner provides a natural and drug-free method that helps aid sleep, relaxation, and promote better overall health and well-being just by breathing while you are sleeping!

Out of the 8 Scents Sleep Scentsations carries, we’ve had a recent spike of interest in one of our scents from the “Fresh” Category.

Who doesn’t love going to the beach and smelling the ocean breeze?  But how many of you really have the time to actually get you and your family there?

Well this might explain the reasoning we’ve seen a growing interest in our “Day at The Beach” Pillow Scent. This scent will have you feel like you are falling asleep on your beach towel with the scents of the ocean air, warm sand, and suntan lotion (without the sand in your bathing suit! haha)



For many people, the beach is an extremely relaxing experience.  As you soak up the sun, you are also smelling the scents of the beach you do not normally smell on a regular basis.  Scents like the ocean air, warm sand and your suntan lotion, once inhaled through the nose into your limbic system,  will automatically trigger your memories of the beach and the relaxing feeling that comes along with them.

Sleep Scentsations Aromatherapy Pillow Liners are the perfect no-mess alternative to bed linen sprays and can bring the Beach to you.

Why not enjoy a little piece of the relaxing Beach as you fall asleep at night?  It’s also Sun-Burn Free!!!
