If you have trouble sleeping, we feel you. The frustrating tossing back and forth in the middle of the night as you watch the hours tick by is the literal worst. But have you tried a sleep spray? Some of the most sound sleepers in the world swear by them for their abilities to reduce nighttime anxiety and soothe you to sleep.
The typical mist usually contains some blend of water, herbal ingredients, and essential oils, such as lavender. The idea is that you spritz it on your sheets and pillows right before hoping in bed, then breathe in as you fall asleep. All of the sprays in this list are essential oil based, but each one has a different mixture the creators swear by for sleep magic.
Magic? Well, let Ceceil Mendal from the essential oil expert company, Little Moon Essentials
, explain, “Olfactory sensations are processed in the same part of the brain that is responsible for emotions and memories. In studies, the essential oils used in sleep products have been found the most effective at promoting feelings of sleepiness and relaxation.”
