Yet, I don't mean night owl; I'm talking about the type that rises at seven A.M.--no matter what time I began counting sheep (and I can bet that I didn't get past five).
I'm also such a beauty nerd and emit favorable behavior when it comes to studies. Seventy eight percent of participants 'had a deeper sleep;' eighty percent 'felt less tired in the morning.' I knew the drug in mention deserved a spot on my nightstand. It's the ThisWorks Deep Sleep range.
I've been lusting over everything from the bath soak to the candle for well over a year now and now my grubby little paws have both the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and Stress Less tangible (a duo packed as the Deep Sleep Pillow Talk set).
As I've tested both constituents for the past month, I tend to strain for the Pillow Spray more.
With a few spritzes of this lavender, vetivert, patchouli, and chamomile liquid, the aroma instantly eases a little strain. How? I have no idea; but, remarkably, I'm never one to fall for aromatherapy promises and, I'll admit, this is certainly no placebo.
With a further induced drift of zzz's, I'll provide a little warning: do not use this stuff on weekdays--there's simply no hope of rising without a groggy finish.
Then, there's the Stress Less rollerball. Although I don't tend to get as much use out of this bottle, the packaging is destined for portable carrying. Housed in a permanent spot on my desk and a carved hole in my makeup bag for voyaging.
Both smell quite similar, but the Stress Less provides a scent of pure lavender with a hint of frankincense dashed in as opposed to the other formulation of a less exclusive essential. Yet, both formulations are made using one hundred percent pure essential oils and free from phthalates, sulphates, synthetic colors and fragrance, parabens, GMOs, mineral oils, petrolatum, and propylene glycol.
So while I don't think anything will cure my connotation (which possibly suggests while sleepovers are a rareity), I crown the Pillow Talk set as the duo that keeps me asleep longer, and, notably, for a girl who likes a good pamper, makes bedtime more luxurious, as well. Maybe the 'girl with the crazy aromatherapy oils' will become a new stereotype....
