I know I tend to do a lot of beauty reviews on here, but the review I have for you today isn't really beauty related, but is something that has genuinely been helping me a lot lately.
This isn't a new product. In fact I picked this Avon one up on Amazon for around £2.99, but the idea of a pillow spray is something I'd never really thought of before recently. As those of you who read my blog know, I've been going through a few health problems over the last 6-9 months. Bad rheumatoid arthritis flare ups over the last month or so have ended up in me feeling very restless and anxious on a night. I guess it's mainly to do with the pain making a good nights sleep extremely difficult. It's not just the pain, but the fact that I stress myself out worrying and over thinking the pain and the fact that I wont be getting enough sleep. It's a vicious cycle.
I looked into pillow sprays, and was skeptical, however for £2.99 I decided this one was worth a go. It is a mix of lavender and chamomile oils, and I have to admit it really is relaxing. A few sprays on my pillow before I go to sleep, and I don't seem to feel as anxious or tense. It helps me fall asleep a lot quicker, and stay in a deeper sleep for longer without waking up every half an hour.
It might all be psychological, like a placebo effect, but regardless of the reason, I know I've been sleeping better and feeling calmer. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who struggles with sleeping at night, or even to any of you out there who suffer from anxiety. It can't hurt to try can it?!
Any way, that's all for today guys, hope you liked the post. Let me know if any of you have tried other versions of this and what you though. Thank you for popping by!
Love to you all x
