WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Unemployment continues to grow nationwide, with more layoffs happening nearly every day. But what happens to the employees who aren't laid off -- the ones now doing their own jobs as well as those of former co-workers? Many are battling sleeplessness. It's a problem costing businesses productivity and profits, and Scent To Sleep (http://www.scenttosleep.com) is stepping up to help employers do something about it.

Employers can purchase Scent To Sleep's all-natural aromatherapy sleep mist at discount rates. It's an inexpensive way for businesses to show they care about their workers while boosting productivity and morale.

So out of necessity, they're making up for it at work."

Often that shut-eye takes the form of microsleep, an episode of sleep lasting anywhere from a fraction of a second to 30 seconds, and it contributes to errors and accidents on the job. And, according to Harris, sleeplessness has been shown to be a reliable predictor of absenteeism.

unpredictable world, however, that's often easier said than done. That's why

blend of relaxing and calming essential oils, Scent To Sleep hel
