    Does anyone know of any scents that would be beneficial in enhancing the Meditative experience?
    Also how about scents that would help me to sleep soundly I have been having sleeping soundly for the last month or so.

    I wouldn't use any scents during meditation, as they will only serve to cause a physical distraction.

    As for sleeping, petitgrain essential oil is useful for this, as it's an anti-spasmodic, so help you to relax. It can smell quite pungent or odd if you're not used to it, and too much (like anything really) could have an adverse effect (e.g. cause headaches etc.), so I would recommend using just two or three drops in water over an oil burner. (If you're not sure consult an aromatherapist)

    Hugs
