Brain Fog? Start at Night With Lavender
Mental fatigue or “brain fog” generally stems from physical fatigue or inadequate sleep. So the remedy begins with at night.

Lavender is a soothing scent, known for its calming properties. The sweet, floral aroma will reduce stress and help quiet a racing mind.
The calming effects of a Yoga ritual before bed can be life-changing, especially when combined with our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil Yoga Mat Cleaner. Simply spray on your mat (and wipe clean) before and after practice to enjoy the aromatic benefits during your practice.
