6 Genius New Products That Will Help You Fall Asleep
We’ve all been there—you’re in bed, patiently waiting to slip off into a deep sleep, and you just can’t get there. You toss, turn, and try just about everything you can think of to get some much-needed shut-eye. Minutes turn into hours, and then more hours, and before you know, it the birds are chirping and your alarm is making that dreaded noise.
Sleep is so important, but with all the stress, anxiety, and illuminated screens we deal with day in and day out, it’s hard to keep up with the recommended schedule. Not getting enough sleep not only wreaks havoc on our bodies, but also our skin. (That’s why they call it beauty sleep, after all.)
To help you zonk out on time and stay asleep all night, we’ve rounded up products that are crafted with those precious eight hours in mind.

Drip this lush bath oil into warm water and you’ll be snoozing in no time. It’s a natural sleep remedy, courtesy of sandalwood, vetivert, and chamomile essential oils. Draw yourself a bath, sink into the water, then crawl into bed feeling soft, soothed, and dreamy.
Tata Harper Aromatic Bedtime Treatment ($69)
While you’re in bed, try applying this aromatic treatment to your wrists, temples, and neck. You can even just rub it on your palms and breathe it in for a minute or so. The calming fragrance will calm your buzzing mind and send you off to sleep in no time.
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray ($34)
Though we’ve already regaled you with the importance of having relaxing scents in your soap, it’s also paramount to keep your bedroom fabrics stress-free as well. Mist your pillowcase (and comforter and sheets) with this therapeutic spray that enhances sleep and calms nerves.

Handcrafted with healing adaptogens and balancing ayurvedic herbs, including holy basil and gotu kola, this travel-size perfume oil is formulated to help anxiety, agitation, PMS, and depression, all of which come into play when you’re trying to fall asleep.
