If you weren’t a restless sleeper before, you are now – a mere glance at the news these days will do that to you. But a lack of sleep puts extra stress on your body and increases your cortisol levels, resulting in a tired, cranky, and older-looking you. Yes, that’s right. Not enough shut-eye causes a dull, lackluster complexion and faster skin aging as it’s during your sleep that skin goes through vital repair and rejuvenation processes – they don’t call it “beauty sleep” for nothing. But if counting sheep isn’t quite cutting it, we’ve rounded up the best sleep-inducing sprays that have been specially formulated to help you drift off.

Its smart pump ensures that only a light mist falls on your pillow (no overflow here), and it guarantees to add a chic touch to any bedside table. The only bad news?

Therapie 'Slumber Pillow Spray'
In the words of brand creator Michelle Roques-O’Neil, “Sleep is the portal to our unconscious. It’s when we rest our minds and heal our bodies, but it’s also when we dream. Dreams allow us to problem-solve and make sense of our day – they can also guide us along our spiritual path”. This is why she created this spiritual spray to help you slumber. Infused with a calming concoction of essential oils and floral waters – including purifying frankincense, sweet orange to reduce anxiety, patchouli to relax the body, and lapis lazuli to clear negative energy and thoughts – it helps keep you centered and grounded whilst promoting peaceful sleep and energy alignment.
