I am a huge fan of mists for the home and I have quite a collection of different scents and fragrances depending on my mood. Sleep, is either something that comes or it teases me and I get the odd few hours here and there, you might have noticed that from my Instagram! One kind of Mist I can’t ever be without is a sleep mist, whilst they might not have a super power to send me off to sleep, they do wonders to relax the mind.
The latest addition to my evening routine comes from Avon and their Plant Spa Aromatherapy Range. The range itself features eight products and it has everything from masks and body butters to hand creams and sprays. The Pillow Mist I have is the Planet Spa Aromatherapy Beauty Sleep Pillow Mist with French Lavendar and Chamomile Essential oils and it is delightful and definitely need to become a candle!
Described as being a multi-use spray, it’s job is to deliver an instant hit or calm and it is ideal to be used on your pillow before you lay down to sleep, on your bed covers such as the duvet, on your towels if you shower before bed, on your house coat (dressing gown) or even in the air. My rule is spray on whatever you need to or whatever you think will calm and relax you. Part of my problem is my brain never switches off - I’ve tried reading, not looking at my phone, no TV, listening to a podcast or some whale moaning music, but I end up laying there over-thinking, so I usually keep as active as I can until I just flop.
Mood-enhancing ingredients such as French Lavender and Chamomile are know for their distinct properties. French Lavender for example is there to help you relax, make sleep come easier, relieve body aches, relieve anxiety, nervous exhaustion, insomnia and it may also help to encourage blood flow too. A lot of products which are “sleep” related contain Lavender in one form or another. Then we have Chamomile, it has a whole host of health benefits but in a product such as this, it shares many properties with Lavender in that it can help those who suffer with insomnia, it helps to relax and relieve anxiety as well as to gently calm your mood so you fall into a deeper sleep.
This is a scent I do find incredibly relaxing and after a long and stressful day in the office, I often just want to have a shower, curl up in bed and just forget the day and switch off. So this has helped immeasurably to do just that, the scent isn’t dominated by the Lavender either, so those of you who are not a fan of the scent needn’t worry too much because the Chamomile is much more dominant and gives a more floral scent.
Priced at just £4 for 100ml it is an absolute bargain and well worth a try if you find yourself in the same situation as me!
