Pillow sprays to help you unwind and drift off to sleep

Soothe your body and mind and lull yourself to sleep with pillow sprays.

If you’re here, you’re probably well aware of all the commonly repeated sleep hacks. Get away from your phone. Limit your coffee intake. Quiet the mind. Swathe yourself in silk. Melt away your tension in a warm, pre-bed bath.

You’ve probably even seen the viral TikTok from Dr Jess Andrade, about wearing socks to bed. “Wearing socks makes your feet warm, which opens up the blood vessels which cool the body down,” explains Dr Jess. “The body, being cool, tells the brain that it’s time for bed.”

If permanent doom is messing up your sleep schedule, keep a sleep spray to mist onto your pillow on hand to relax you and promote a better night’s sleep.

Feeling a restless night ahead because of a busy mind? A spritz on your pillow or cocooning your room will induce a state of calm.  Just a whiff will soothe your body and mind, help you unwind and have you out for the count in no time. And maybe pop a pair of fluffy socks on too.

Shop our edit of the loveliest pillow mists and sleep sprays to lull you off to sleep below.
