Yes, there is.  Instead of being tempted to use gallons of water in the bath, buy a bottle of Lavender Essential Oil.  Sprinkle a few drops on your pillow before bed to let the healing powers of lavender relax you into a good night’s sleep.

Or, if you’d rather not purchase an essential oil, visit a local lavender farm and buy a bunch of dried herbs or your own lavender plant.  Once the herbs loose their scent, take small portions and place in a sachet bag.  Give the bag a squeeze every now and again to re-release the oils for the fresh, clean lavender smell.  Place bag in clothing drawers or in your pillow.
