For the most part, I’ve always had a relatively easy time going to sleep, but with the Covid-19 pandemic and all the stress that has come with it, it’s getting harder and harder to sleep at night. If like me you are finding simply going to sleep getting difficult, then keep on reading, I may be able to help.
Regardless of what is going on in the world, hitting the pause button and getting your much-needed shut-eye is the best way to refresh and reset your body (on the inside and out). And lately, there’s no better way to get the most out of your precious sleep than with a stress-relieving, therapeutic pillow mist.
Essentially a pillow mist is a water-based spray that contains essential oil. Before you go to sleep you spritz a little on your pillow to help relax your mind and get you in the best state for sleep. The aromas within pillow mists cause our bodies to produce melatonin, a hormone that promotes restful sleep.
Numerous studies have been conducted confirming lavender’s use as an all-natural sedative, while chamomile has been shown to curb anxiety and depression; as a result, they tend to be the two most common used fragrances within pillow mists.
Spritzing on a little scent to your pillow helps tell your mind it’s time to relax while breathing in deeply and appreciating the aromas aids the switching off a process that’s so essential. I’ve been using pillow sprays so long that my mind now associates those notes of Lavender and Chamomile with sleep, so it’s an immediate signal to start slowing down and start getting snuggly beneath the sheets.
If you are ready for a good night’s sleep why not spray a little pillow mist on your pillow and you will be on your way to a very good night.
