Light color, temperature and luminance can be important when it comes to balancing your body’s natural rhythms. The device aims to cater to all three of those.
When it comes to light, various studies have shown that the optimal color “temperature” is 2700 Kelvin and the optimal luminance is 35%. Sleepion 2 has a 2,500 kelvin watt light bulb that simulates the gentle pulsing of a candle.
The choice of aroma is an important part of the system. You can pick from Hinoki, Lavender, Geranium, Lemon Grass and Forest aromatized rings that insert easily into the top of the device. There is also an unscented ring in case you wish to add an essential oil of your own.
