We'll admit it, we're not nightly sleep-mask wearers however this little beauty is a game-changer. Handmade in London from soft bamboo silk, Masters of Mayfair's navy blue sleep mask comes complete with a subtle lavender scent which soothed our senses into dreamland. Comfortable to wear and easy to adjust, this mask is perfect for light sleepers and those sensitive to brightness. £39.99, mastersofmayfair.co.uk
Commonly dubbed the secret to sleep problems, magnesium offers bountiful health benefits including relieving muscle aches and spasms, preventing headaches and calming anxiety, and this bundle from Better You ticked all the boxes for inducing a peaceful 40 winks. First, we treated our feet to a much deserved pamper with the inflatable foot bath and magnesium flakes which washed away the day's stresses. Next we soothed our skin from head to toe with the magnesium body cream and finally, to give our slumber one final push, we finished the evening with the MagnesiumOil Goodnight Spray before drifting off into a deep slumber. Bliss! Prices start from £3.49, betteryou.com
A calming cuppa before turning in for the night is our natural go-to for those evenings when getting a restful sleep seems a world away so we couldn't wait to try Tick Tock Rooibus Tea, an organic naturally caffeine-free redbush. After a few days of enjoying an evening brew before bed we felt ourselves drifting off easier and quicker than before and were less prone to waking up. £2.29 for 40 bags, ticktocktea.com
This product is a triple threat. Comprising a luxurious lavender bath oil, organza lavender seed pouch and sleep soothe balm, after a stressful day this bundle ensured a calm night. We tried the three products blended together for utter relaxation but each one was also effective when used alone. We love! £29.99, puriskinbyvb.com
Feeling anxious, stressed or tense? Just a few sprays of this mist melted our worries away in an instant. Containing frankincense oil to bring a sense of peace and cedarwood essential oil to stimulate the production of melatonin, the hormone which controls your natural sleep cycle, after a few deep breaths we felt ourselves becoming more and more relaxed... So much so that sleep seemed the only option. £12, baseformula.com
