When it comes to necessities, I’m not sure if pillows sprays top that list. Pillows are essentials for all of us but with continued research on sleep, we’ve learned how scents can make the experience better. Sleep isn’t just about quantity but also about quality and the factors in your sleeping quarters are crucial. The point is, pillow sprays just might need to be your next priority. Not to mention, your pillow also needs some reassessment to whether it does help your shut-eye.
We’ve drummed up our own combinations because of this realization. Now all you have to do is lay down and rest.
Think of lazy Saturday naps after reading your chosen book, music-listening sessions on early evenings, and other little pockets of time that allow for a short nap. Your next cuddle buddy could be this Ikat Bird Throw Pillow as you curl your legs. Inhale the notes of lavender, bergamot, mandarin, sweet orange and geranium to help you relax and think only happy thoughts with the L’Occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Pillow Mist.
L’Occitane. Available at Greenbelt 5.
Ikat Brid. Available via Seek the Uniq.
Road trips and plane rides can make one a bit too anxious. The best solution would be sleep but how can you achieve that with the bumps and the turbulence? Spray the It Works! Deep Sleep Dream Mist (it’s small enough to fit your pocket) on your Infinity Pillow and find the position that best suits you. The Infinity Pillow can be twisted and folded anyway you want to support your head, neck, and even back without taking too much space.
It Works! Available via Seek the Uniq.

When you want deep and long sleep, go for the most comforting combination your money can buy. Neal’s Yard Goodnight Pillow Mist combines essential oils like vetiver, chamomile, lavender, citronella to calm your troubled mind and hush out the worried thoughts.

It also conforms to your shape to make your sleep continuously and well.
