Have trouble winding down at night? Getting some good shut-eye isn’t as simple or as easy as it seems for many. You may find yourself tossing and turning for what feels like ages, or lying in bed wide awake with nothing but work on your mind. It’s even worse when you end up waking up multiple times during the night and struggle to fall back asleep. Need a quick fix to improve the overall quality of your sleep? Here are five products to reduce insomnia and make you more rested.

This Works Sleep Pillow Spray

Britsh beauty brand This Works has formulated a soothing concoction of lavender, camomile and vetivert to put your mind at ease. A quick spritz of this Deep Sleep Pillow Spray on your pillow will significantly improve your sleep cycle by helping you fall asleep faster—that means no more cranky mornings. 

Nodpod Weighted Sleep Mask

Apart from blocking out light exposure, weighted eye masks help your body to relax by signalling your brain to calm down—allowing you to fall into a slumber quickly and stay fast asleep for a longer period of time. This sleep mask has four equally weighted pods that have been designed to feel like a soft hug around your head. 

Yogasleep Dohm Classic Natural Sound Machine

If the sounds of rushing waterfalls and oceans waves help you to unwind, then it’s worth investing in a white noise machine. It not only masks distracting noises from the outside world, but also sets the mood in your bedroom. Place this device on your bedside table and let the ambient sounds lull you into sleep.

Traditional Medicinals Nighty Night Herbal Tea

A warm cup of tea could be the answer to your sleeplessness. Just moments before you hit the sack, drink some herbal tea (containing chamomile and linden flower) and you will drift off to sleep in no time. But don’t go to bed on a full stomach; it can cause acid reflux—preventing you from getting a good night’s rest. 

Neom Organics Perfect Night’s Sleep Essential Oil Blend

Add ten drops of this essential oil in your diffuser or bath to promote relaxation and ease tension for better ZZZs. The scent of lavender, jasmine, sweet basil and 16 other calming ingredients has a soporific effect like no other. If you don’t already have a diffuser, opt for Muji. It has a built-in timer, so you don’t have to worry about turning it off after you fall asleep, and doubles as a night light.
