These 10 products will give you the best sleep of your life — nightstand necessities.
Personally, when I’m feeling nostalgic, I think back to the days when staying up late was a rite of passage. I resented my 7 o’clock bedtime and stay up just a couple more hours. Even as a college student, all-nighters were the norm and forgoing sleep felt like the only way to have a social life. Well, needless to say that I, along with many of you, no longer want to function on too few hours sleep a night. We’re big fans of sleep around here and will try almost anything to ensure we’re getting at least 8 hours a night. That’s why we’ve rounded up our favorite products to help your sleep, here’s hoping they let you get some restorative shut-eye, too.
From shutting the phone down a few hours before bedtime to keeping the bedroom cool to eating a light dinner, (and, of course, wearing breathable pajamas) we have our evening routines on lock. But what happens when your body or mind just won’t let you fall asleep? Thanks to a lot of testing, we’ve got the answers, 10 to be exact.
From calm-inducing capsules to relaxing pillow mists and the most luxurious sleep mask you’ve ever slipped on, these are my tried-and-true products that’ll help us all ease into a peaceful slumber. As always, consult your physician if you have specific needs or questions.
Behold, the 10 best products to help you sleep soundly, night after night.
Beam Dream Capsules.
If you’re someone who takes Melatonin and Magnesium nightly, you will love Beam because not only does it combine the two but takes it one step further by adding L-theanine, an amino acid that promotes relaxation and calm.
Moon Juice Magnesi-Om.
If powders and drinks are more your style, Moon Juice’s Magnesi-Om is a great alternative. With Magnesium and L-theanine, this one also helps you wind down (body and mind) and tastes like a bedtime treat.
Proper Sleep + Calm.
Proper is a supplement company focused and dedicated to sleep with the option to join their subscription-based model, and get a sleep coach too! The hero ingredient of their Sleep + Calm product is L-theanine. This one is best for those who are highly stimulated throughout the day and need a hand in finding mental and physical calm.
Plant People Drops + Sleep.
These drops contain a full spectrum hemp extract, high in CBD & CBN, a rare, minor cannabinoid with sedative effects that is used to relieve pain, aid sleep, and soothe muscle spasms. Bonus, it doesn’t have the terrible aftertaste that some CBD drops leave behind.
TheraOne Sleep CBD Tincture.
From the same company that created the TheraBody percussion tools, this one contains 1000mg of Full-Spectrum CBD with a blend of chamomile oil, lavender oil, and valerian root extract to move you into a deep slumber. The taste is great and you won’t wake up feeling groggy.
Rose Los Angeles Deep Sleep.
For those that prefer a gummie vs. pill or liquid, Rose does the trick. This is one of the most potent (in a good way) CBD gummies with 10mg per serving.
OSEA x Parachute Sleep Time Bath Salts.
If you’re a bath-before-bed type, look no further than these bath salts with lavender and essential oils to help relax your body.
Chilisleep OOLER Sleep System.
Run hot (or cold) at night or sleep with a partner who makes it almost impossible for you to cool down (or warm up)? Look no further than Chilisleep’s OOLER cooling mattress pad, which is hydro-powered, and allows you and your partner to adjust to your specific needs.
OSEA Vagus Nerve Pillow Mist.
The vagus nerve is the longest cranial nerve in the body and activates the body’s relaxation response, while helping regulate stress. It’s a light and subtle scent that we like spraying on our linens just before crawling into bed.
Nidra Sleep Mask.
Sometimes it really is the simplest things that work best, popping on a sleep mask may be the thing you needed to get some proper sleep, and allowing you to fall asleep within minutes.
