Boots Sleep Pillow Mist
Advantages: Aids relaxation and sleep, lasts a long time, smells great.
Disadvantages: Is a tad on the expensive side.
This is a product I have been using for years since my mother first bought me a bottle when I was having problems with getting to sleep. They have changed the packaging a couple of times since then but this is the current format and it costs £6.15 for a 100ml bottle (though you can often find it cheaper as part of various deals that Boots have for their Sleep range).
The premise with this product is that you spray it over your pillow before going to bed and the aroma will help you to relax and drift off. They used to do a ginger and cottonwood extract one which literally worked amazingly well for me but unfortunately they stopped making that one for some reason, the two you can choose between now are Lavendar and Geranium. Personally I use the Lavendar one as the Geranium one is too light and floral for my tastes.
I find that literally two squirts of this product is enought to get the desired effect so a bottle lasts a good few months, I do believe, therefore, that it represents good value for money - especially as it does seem to work for me. I do not know how much of the effectiveness is psychosomatic now as I have become used to associating the smell of the product with going to sleep, but it is fair to say that on some level, for me, this works.
The smell is not too heavy and behind the lavendar you can trace other aromas of essential oils (I am sure there is sandalwood in there although it is not listed on the bottle). The bottle is a pump spray rather than an aerosol and I find the bottle easy enough on the eye that I do not mind it sitting on my bedside table, unlike the picture above it is actually in a silver and purple bottle these days.
This is not a medicine of sorts but an 'aid' to restful sleep and I believe it is worth a try if you are struggling, I have found it a useful product to use and will continue to do so.
Summary: A fab item to aid restful sleep, well worth trying.
