    Pillow mist spray review

    Have you ever used a pillow mist spray? Here I write a review on one of my favourites called Tropic So Sleepy.

    Pillow mist spray review

    There’s nothing worse than feeling tired before going to bed and then finding that you’re wide awake for the next hour trying to sleep.

    We’ve all been there as adults more so than children. They seem to have a knack and the ability to drop off as soon as their head hits the pillow. If only!

    Being sleep-deprived can have a huge impact on our day-to-day activities, especially if we’ve had several nights of desperately trying to dose off with little success.

    Waking up the next morning feeling like you have been awake for most of the night is not a nice feeling.

    Many of us are already in the habit of watching TV til late, working and looking at our screens before bed and these combinations don’t assist us in any way.

    The perfect solution in a bottle of pillow mist spray

     

    I had a bottle of the Tropic So Sleepy bought as a gift for my birthday last year.
    I have never used one before but was willing to give it a try to see if it did work.

    Looking at the ingredients alone was enough surely to help me drop off to sleep.

    Notes of lavender, chamomile and frankincense essential oils in a 30ml bottle sounded heavenly and were surely going to help enormously with getting a good night’s sleep.

    I have always been a bit wary of spraying products directly onto my pillow. Not keen on the idea that my skin could potentially touch the product as it soaks in whilst I move into different positions in a bid to get comfortable.

    The great thing about using a pillow mist spray is that although it is a pillow mist you don’t have to spray on your pillow.

    Like other topical products that help sleep and the respiratory system, I like to put the product onto a tissue and then have the tissue near my pillow so that I still benefit from its properties.

    By doing this, I know that the product is not going to come into contact with my skin and potentially cause a reaction.

    The first whiff of the Tropic So Sleepy product is the lavender. A beautiful flower not just for its vibrant colour but also for so many of its healing properties.

    It is a beautiful scent to assist in a peaceful night’s sleep

    There is almost a sense of instant calm as soon as the fragrance hits your nose, giving you the confidence that it will assist in a better night’s sleep.

    Having not used it for several weeks, simply due to forgetting that I had it in my bedside drawer, and having a few disturbed nights, I was keen to revisit this little product once again.

    I’ve been used to waking up through the night regularly for several years and that’s part and parcel of how my sleep pattern has settled. This has never really bothered me that much.

    Clock watching

    The fact that I was finding it difficult to get to sleep in the first place was what bothered me.

    Every five minutes looking at the clock to see if the time had moved on as much as it felt like it had or indeed if I had even fallen asleep and woken up again a short time later.

    Nothing worse than constantly checking the alarm clock to see if we have been asleep or still very much awake

    Sleep felt like it was overrated when we were younger. Why do we need to go to bed so early? What was the importance of sleep?

    “I don’t want to go to bed!”

    As we grow older, we start to learn and realise that sleep is an essential part of our everyday lives.

    Without a good night’s rest, it can have a detrimental effect on our mental health, our well-being and our physical being.

    We spent so many years in our youth fighting sleep and not wanting to go to bed and now as adults we are desperately going the other way in trying to get as much shut-eye as possible.

    The 30ml bottle simply requires 2 to 3 pumps 30 cm away from your pillow to aid a peaceful night’s sleep. It is 100% naturally derived and can be purchased on eBay.

    Take a look at my article on pillow mist spray where I show a selection of sleep sprays the benefits of using them and the benefits of their main ingredient Lavender.

    The ingredients in a bottle of Tropic So Sleepy pillow mist spray

     

    Tropic So Sleepy contains chamomile so let’s take a look at the benefits of this ingredient.

    Chamomile is a wonderful mild tranquillizer and it contains apigenin, found in many plants, one of the bioflavonoids and helps to reduce anxiety and causes sedation.

    Both are needed for a restful night’s sleep. Chamomile tea also has huge benefits too.

    To have a peaceful night, our body needs to be in a relaxed state.

    So by using pillow sprays that contain such ingredients as lavender and chamomile, we are well on our way to heading in the right direction in preparing our body for sleep.

    Most of us will aim for at least 6-8 hours if we can.

    Another ingredient that this little bottle of magic contains is frankincense.

    With similar properties to chamomile, frankincense helps to overcome stress, has aromatherapeutic benefits and promotes relaxation.

    Sometimes it can also be the added obstacle of having a winter cold that stops us from dropping off to sleep easily.

    Colds and flu put a stop to a restful l night

    Many of us have attempted to get to sleep but our nose is either running or our sinuses are blocked up.

    Why does this always happen at night ?!

    By helping to relax the body and mind, along with added aromatherapy oils such as eucalyptus, this can help to relieve such symptoms.

    So many people prefer to have topical solutions to help with everyday situations rather than taking medicines or supplements and the pillow mist spray is a wonderful creation and highly recommended.

    Those with children I’m sure have used Olbus oil in the past to help children with stuffy noses and coughs to help them sleep yet we forget to do similar things when we are adults and are struggling to sleep too.

    Pillow mist spray

    Pillow mist spray has become very popular of late and has been a great product in helping with restful sleep. The closest thing I ever knew of a pillow mist spray was a few drops of Olbus oil or lavender on my pillow to help me sleep.

    The Olbus oil was fairly strong and was mainly used to aid a cold. I also remember using Bach Flower pure essential oils as a sleeping aid. Concentrated oil that had so many uses.

    Lavender has always been a good fragrance for helping with sleep and calming the mind for a more relaxed feel.

    Lavender- aromatic, antioxidant, calming, sedative and antidepressant

    It’s unclear how lavender works to help with sleep but there is the suggestion that Linalool, a major component of lavender oil, produces a sedative effect.

    GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a neurotransmitter which sends chemical messages through to the nervous system and the brain. This reaction plays a major role in aiding better sleep.

    Lavender, with its vibrant colour, can be found in many items on the market that can help us sleep.

    The benefits of using a pillow spray

    When you find it difficult to switch off and sleep at night, a pillow spray could be just for you. They are infused with aromatherapy ingredients such as lavender, Jasmine, Rose, white musk, lemon and geranium.

    The delicate scents help with relaxation, restfulness and calmness. All of which will aid in a better night’s sleep. They are safe to use, reasonably priced and easy to apply.
     
    We have all had those nights and mornings where we feel that it is taking hours to switch off and fall asleep or wake up in the morning feeling like we’ve only been asleep for a few hours. Especially during the winter months when it can be difficult to get up and out of bed on the dark mornings.

    The importance of sleep

     
    We must get enough shut-eye. Not only for our well-being but also it allows us to set time aside to switch off from a busy schedule and relax the mind.
    Over time, lack of sleep can have an adverse effect. We may start to notice that we feel more burnt out, more irritable, excessively tired and genuinely feeling unmotivated for the day.

    A good night’s sleep is essential for our wellbeing
    Our bodies do a lot of repairing whilst we sleep. Changes in the way we breathe, our heart rate and brain activity all take place when we rest through the night so we must get enough hours to make sure that our body rests fully.

    To feel refreshed when you wake is a sign that you’ve had a restful night.

    If you wake up still feeling lethargic, forgetful and dragging your feet then a lack of essential sleep may be part of the problem.

    Pillow mist spray
    Sleep helps fight off infection such as a cold so we must get enough rest through the night. We are all guilty of staying up late to watch a movie or enjoy an evening with friends. Whilst this is OK in the short term, over time our bodies almost cry out for us to listen and take notes to rest.
    Many of us don’t get the recommended seven hours of sleep that’s needed.
     
    Gone are the days when it was a cup of hot chocolate or cocoa to help us sleep. Although these do work to relax the body and mind.
    Nowadays there are other ways to help us and they don’t involve taking medication either. When you find that your brain just doesn’t switch off before bed, then a pillow mist spray really can help.

    Often we can find ourselves in a catch-22 situation. The worry and stress caused by not being able to fall asleep quickly and easily mount up and therefore keep us awake even longer.

    Why should we use a pillow mist?

    One person may not notice any difference when using a pillow spray compared to someone else. Having a safe and easy-to-use product that can be sprayed onto the pillow or bed linen can help alleviate the restfulness that so many people suffer from. Life is very much fast moving these days and many of us will often go to bed with the day’s worries or things to do on our mind.
    Listening to calming music has a very similar effect but unlike using a pillow mist spray, the music needs to be switched off automatically so that it’s not playing all through the night and potentially waking you back up again.

    The best scents to use

    So what are the best scents to use when it comes to a pillow mist spray? Chamomile, an ingredient that is often in pillow mists has been shown to alleviate anxiety.

    Lavender is possibly the most common scent found in pillow mists. Its benefits include reducing blood pressure and helping the body to produce melatonin.
