Trouble Sleeping? Try aromatherapy!
This is a bottle of Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Sleep Pillow Mist.
I must say that I used to be an insomniac, and this helped me when I had trouble falling asleep. Lavender is my "it's time to sleep scent" along with Chamomile tea. Having trigger cues such as the flavor of tea or the scent surrounding you helps you sleep by constant association, along with the natural properties of the substance.
When you want to go to sleep, make sure that:
1. your lights are off
2. your tv is off
3. you haven't exercised recently
4. you aren't thinking about anything
I only use extras such as this when I had more trouble than normal. Of course, I've been having the opposite problem recently: I've been sleeping way too much.
It's better that you don't associate your sleeping area with other activities. I end up sleeping while studying when I do it on the bed T_T
This product may irritate you, so check before buying. For me, the only real con of this product is it's smell: it's so good! It makes me want to smush my face into my pillow. It's bad because I might suffocate myself and the pillow could be dirty and contribue to my zits.
Still, I keep this at my bedside table for when I want to remind myself, that it's time to snooze again :)
Edit: my nails are one layer of Jade is the New Black by OPI with China Glaze's Atlantis at the edges: the product of too much goopy quick dry top coat (I get the same results with Seche Vite and Orly Won't Chip :|).
