the Reads: Mind & Spirit

More people sleep badly than sleep well

More people sleep badly than sleep well – and in summer, it’s set to get worse: bed manufacturer Sealy found that in hot weather 42% of us wake up at least once during the night. But there are savvy new products that will help (even if some of the effect is mind over matter). Hello Day Sleep Rest (£19) is a supplement with valerian to cope with a busy lifestyle and daily stress, and lemon balm for a positive mood and calm wellbeing, while Neom Perfect Night Sleep Face Oil is full of antioxidants and vitamins and has Neom’s special ‘Tranquility fragrance’ made from lavender, chamomile and patchouli to make you sleepy. A lullaby in a bottle.⠀

Roll-ons are quick and easy to use and these are two that we love. Tisserand Aromatherapy Sleep Better pulse point roll-on (£4.96) contains soothing sandalwood and lavender, while De Mamiel‘s lovely Sleep series of roll-on products – Settle, Soothe, Anchor, Rise and Shine – prep you for good sleep.
