When it comes to drifting off into restful slumber, there are some things that you can do to calm your mind and body, preparing them to slip into sluggish sleep mode fast.

Turning off all the lights in the room and playing white noise in the background to drown out any sonic disturbances are helpful steps to take just before bedtime, but don’t forget to let your nose (or sense of smell) tap into your daily wind-down routine too.

Rest better with a sleep spray

sleep spray

Sleep sprays, like essential oil roll-ons or scented candles, can help to soothe your senses, relax your being, and lull your body into a state of rest.

A lavender sleep spray, for one, is known for its relaxing and pain-relieving effects; the aroma sedates your nervous system and helps you to fall asleep more easily. Other scents like clary sage and chamomile also work to calm the body, making it easier for you to tip over into blissful slumber.

Unlike essential oil roll-ons, a sleep spray is designed to be spritzed onto your pillow, bedsheets, and pyjamas, though some are meant to be misted around the room or directly onto your skin.

Since we can relate to tossing and turning before getting proper shuteye, we’ve rounded up the 17 best sleep sprays to lull you into restful slumber in Singapore!

Best sleep sprays in Singapore

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray

sleep spray

Featuring a super-soothing blend of soft lavender, vetiver, and white chamomile, This Works’ Deep Sleep Pillow Spray will help to relieve stress and lull your body into a state of calm.

For those who are not so familiar with vetiver, it’s a plant that’s reminiscent of fresh grass and rain-washed soil, and some compare it to lemongrass, though it has a more earthy fragrance than zesty lemongrass. Known for its stress-relieving effects, vetiver, infused in a sleep spray, is a worthy addition to your wind-down bedtime routine.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray retails for S$38 on Sephora.

Aura Cacia Relaxing Lavender

sleep spray

Aura Cacia’s Relaxing Lavender is a versatile fragrance that can be used to scent the room or spritzed onto your body for full and rich notes of soothing lavender.

Although not created specifically to lull you to sleep, Relaxing Lavender can be used just like a sleep spray – just mist the fragrance onto your body and be enveloped in delicious lavender scents that’ll help you drift off into sweet slumber.

Aura Cacia also has other fragrances including Clearing Eucalyptus, Peaceful Patchouli & Sweet Orange, and Refreshing Tangerine & Grapefruit.

Childs Farm Baby Bedtime Pillow Spray

sleep spray

Dermatologist- and paediatrician-approved, Childs Farm Baby Bedtime Pillow Spray is made specially to soothe the little ones and ease them gently into a restful slumber.

That’s not to say that you can’t spritz this organic tangerine essential oil sleep spray onto your pillow and sheets to sleepily settle down at bedtime and wake up oh-so-refreshed.

Better yet, since the Baby Bedtime Pillow Spray is baby-safe, the brand also deems it suitable for all skin types including dry, sensitive, and skin that’s prone to eczema.

Childs Farm Baby Bedtime Pillow Spray retails for S$23.90 on Robinsons.

Plant Therapy Blissful Dreams Lavender Pillow Spray

sleep spray

Soak in the rich, creamy scents of lavender and chamomile, citrusy bergamot fragrance, and fresh vetiver when you mist Plant Therapy’s Blissful Dreams Lavender Pillow Spray onto your linens during your bedtime routine.

The sleep spray has been third-party tested on rayon, polished cotton, silk, leather, pleather, and carpet, but the brand recommends that you first test it on an inconspicuous spot on your sheets to make sure it doesn’t stain first.

This 230ml bottle is priced at S$23.40, making it one of the better-budget sleep spray options on our list.

Plant Therapy Blissful Dreams Lavender Pillow Spray retails for S$23.40 on Amazon.

Dr Teal’s Sleep Spray with Melatonin & Essential Oils

sleep spray

On top of an essential oil blend to ease your body into a state of calm, Dr Teal’s sleep spray also features melatonin, a hormone that’s produced by the body in response to darkness and known for regulating sleep cycles.

With higher melatonin levels, your body will feel calm and sleepy, which is why this mist is so effective at helping you dose off quickly.

However, some advise that melatonin is a better short-term (than long-term) solution for sleep, so it’s best that you consult your doctor before taking to Dr Teal’s Sleep Spray with Melatonin & Essential Oils.

Dr Teal’s Sleep Spray with Melatonin & Essential Oils (pack of three) retails for S$26.91 on Amazon. You can also get the Sleep Spray with Melatonin & Essential Oils (one bottle) for S$24.69 on Amazon.

Brookethorne Naturals Relax Aromatherapy Mist Lavender & Peppermint

sleep spray

You don’t have to worry about being overpowered by strong notes of lavender with Brootkthorne Naturals’ Relax Aromatherapy Mist that’s infused with soothing lavender, cool peppermint, woody witch hazel, and marjoram (sweet pine and citrus scent) for a subtle therapeutic fragrance.

Reviewers give praise to this sleep spray’s gentle yet ultra-relaxing aroma, so if you’ve got no nose for heavy scents, then this mist’s the one to bring you that much closer to dream-bliss.

Brootkthorne Naturals Relax Aromatherapy Mist Lavender & Peppermint retails for S$21.57 on Amazon.

Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Essential Oil Mist

sleep spray

Bath & Body Works’ Aromatherapy collection boasts scents that are ultra-fresh, soothing, and natural – set apart from the rest of the sweeter fragrances that the brand features.

The Eucalyptus Spearmint Essential Oil Mist is a particularly fresh, herbal aroma that powerfully melts away your tensions in a moment; it’s the perfect sleep spray for those who adore herbaceous (rather than fruity or floral) flavours.

Mist some onto your pillow and bedsheets, and you’ll be drifting happily in slumberland in no time. Pssst! You can also pair the sleep spray with other stress-relieving products in the collection like body washes and moisturisers too.

This true-blue essential oil blend contains only oils – lavender, tangerine, bergamot, cypress, geranium, coconut, frankincense, and chamomile – and water, with no other added chemicals. The fragrance that you enjoy before you go to bed will be deliciously warm and earthy, but with a delicate sweet-citrusy hint.

Besides spritzing it onto your pillow before you go to bed, you can also apply Nature’s Truth Calming Goodnite onto temples for an extra-relaxing slumber boost.

Nature’s Truth Calming Goodnite retails for S$15.51 on Amazon.

Tisserand Aromatherapy Sleep Better Pillow Mist

sleep spray

Lavender scents can be a tad too overpowering for some, so Tisserand Aromatherapy’s Sleep Better Pillow Mist stars other scents like earthy sandalwood and floral jasmine to give a subtle but soothing fragrance for sleep.

The downside to this blissful blend is that it might not be quite as long-lasting as other sleep sprays on our list; reviewers note that the fragrance fades quickly unless you mist a generous amount over your linens.

Your alternative? The Tisserand Aromatherapy Sleep Better Pulse Point Roller Ball, which gives the same divinely relaxing aroma but lasts you for a longer time through the night.

Tisserand Aromatherapy Sleep Better Pillow Mist retails for S$22.10 on Shopee. Tisserand Aromatherapy Sleep Better Pulse Point Roller Ball retails for S$15.30 on Shopee.

Votary Pillow Spray Lavender And Chamomile

sleep spray

Votary’s Pillow Spray in Lavendar and Chamomile boasts scents of French lavender, Damask roses, and chamomile tea, meant to capture the fragrance of “a country garden at dusk”. These fragrances in the sleep spray easily help to calm the mind and soothe the senses, making it truly the scent of dreams.

However, you might want to… sleep on it (pun intended) before you make a purchase, no thanks to its steep price tag. Though the expensive, embossed bottle makes a weighty addition to the bedside table, some think it’s too much of a splurge for a sleep spray.

Votary Pillow Spray Lavender And Chamomile retails for S$70 on Sephora.

Sabun Better Sleep Linen Spray Sleep Aid

sleep spray

For those who need a strong dose of lavender fragrance to soothe them to sleep, Sabun’s Better Sleep Linen Spray Sleep Aid is a great choice.
