Okay, sure, there are plenty of important factors to consider when it comes to catching your full eight hours – including buying some good pillows, making sure you have the best duvet, fragrancing your bedroom with a room spray, investing in some silk bedding (so luxurious) and, of course, ensuring your mattress is comfy.
But a spray to spritz your pillowcase with could be your answer to nodding off quicker – and we’ve found the perfect one.

If you’ve not heard of This Works’ Deep Sleep Pillow Spray by now, then we don’t know where you’ve been hiding. Its rave reviews and sell-out status have got everybody talking and, of course, asking the question; does it actually work? The clue is very much in the brand’s name: yes, it does.
How does the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray work?
A quick spritz of this formula will have you dozing off within seconds, and it’s all down to its formula. Pillow mists and sprays are often proven to work because they produce sleep inducing aromas, this causes our bodies to produce melatonin (a hormone which promotes restful sleep) and therefore fall asleep quicker than we would normally.
This Works’ Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is infused with lavender and chamomile – two ingredients renowned for aiding sleep – to help calm both the body and mind. It’s a recipe made for perfection, to put it bluntly.

What is the best pillow spray?
If This Works’ pillow spray doesn’t appeal (or is sold out again – we wouldn’t be surprised), there are plenty of other pillow sprays to consider. This Cowshed Sleep Calming Pillow Mist is all natural, infused with a blend of melissa and lemon myrtle essential oils to help relieve tension and stress, and scented with a citrus aroma. Oliver Bonas’ Relax Sleep Set features a pillow spray and rollerball making it ideal for travel and for when you’re seriously in need of some Z’s. The Goodnight Pillow Mist from Neal’s Yard Remedies is also one of the best – it’s made by a brand known for its remedies, so how could it not be?
Looking for other sleep content? Don’t blame you, we love our kip too. Head this way for the best body pillows (whether you’re pregnant or not), this way for mattress toppers, and over here for cooling pillows. We’ve also got essential oil diffusers to help get you in the mood to snooze, sleep books to distract you from insomnia and a complete Brook + Wilde Ultima mattress review – since it was coined the “best mattress you can buy in the UK right now”.
