REN & Now to Sleep Pillow Spray Review

I've enjoyed - and all but swore by - misting my bed linen and on occasion pyjamas, with sleepy-scented, fabric sprays since I was a pre-teen. It all began with an Avon Sleep Mist and has slowly snowballed into a more expensive habit as the years tick by. As it goes not everyone can get on board with sleep sprays, with the main reason being for many is that they don't enjoy lavender fragrances - which of course is a major component within such product category. Lavender helps promote sleep, it's natural, fairly easy to source and as such brands pretty much fall over themselves to use it.

So what if such scent isn't something you are clambering to use? I have seven words for you REN & Now to Sleep Pillow Spray.

Now from the get go, I will openly state that the REN & Now to Sleep Pillow Spray does contain Lavender but it is used so mildly that I personally believe that even the fussiest of noses won't be able to detect it. Rather the calming fragrance is mostly constructed of: Frankincense (to help put your mind at rest), Hops (to soothe and calm), Cedar Wood (naturally helps to reduce stress) and of course a teeny, tiny hint of Lavender (to help reduce anxiety) - combined such ingredients form a fairly robust, intoxicating, almost spicy and of course familiar, sleepy scent without a hint of the aforementioned, dreaded powdery note.

When I say familiar, there is no need to panic and wonder if we are all doomed to forever reek of Lavender - all I really mean is that most of sleep boosting sprays share a somewhat similar scent due to most including all but identical ingredients.

Do pillow mists work? In my opinion yes but I may be more susceptible to placebos than the average person, so who really knows? All I can vouch is that when I mist my pillows with REN & Now to Sleep Pillow Spray, I'm instantly relaxed and I find myself more ready for bed; my brain now associates the scent with rest and as such I am quicker to wind down and naturally drift off. Maybe it is the routine of using the product, maybe it is scent association, or maybe, just maybe it works (for me).

I can't promise you miracles will occur if you use any sleep inducing bath and body product, however if you do like the concept and have longed for a product minus the typical Lavender scent, then the REN & Now to Sleep Pillow Spray is for you.
