    Happy International Sleep Day! On this wonderful day dedicated to dreaming for hours on end, I thought I'd put together a bunch of products I love that help me get to sleep.


    And this stuff will hopefully help if you're someone who has trouble falling asleep at a reasonable hour.

    1. This Sleepy gel by Lush that's perfect for using during your pre-bedtime shower to relax your senses and give you a little bit of calm after the tough day you've had.

    This shower gel contains oat milk to soothe your skin, lavender oil for a little calming aromatherapy and ylang ylang oil to uplift your mind to give you premium dreams. It smells fantastic and will have you ready to drift off in no time.

    2. And pair it with this Sleepy lotion by Lush that will make you feel relaxed and ready for your eight hours.

    This body lotion contains lavender to calm your mind, oatmeal to soothe your skin and jojoba oil to moisturise the heck out of your skin. It also smells absolutely phenomenal, so get to your nearest Lush store and get sniffing.

    Promising Review: "I kid you not, this lotion has changed the quality of my sleep. It's this heavenly mix of oatmeal, lavender oil, organic cocoa butter and a bunch of other natural goodness, plus it smells divine. My colleague swore up and down I would never sleep better than getting out of the shower, lathering this on, then jumping under my covers – and he was not wrong."

    3. This weighted cotton blanket because you sure don't need a cuddle buddy to lessen your anxiety and get a good night’s rest.

    If you're the kind of person who tosses and turns a lot before going to bed, this weighted blanket will change your life. It feels like being tucked in, or cuddling someone, except better because you don't need to deal with another person.

    Weight is evenly distributed throughout the stitching of the blanket, making it feel as though you’re being hugged as you sleep. This blanket uses sand pellets for the weight distribution rather than fibre, so that you can use it all year round without feeling too hot.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $78.95.

    4. This sleep mask that will shut out the world (and the haters), so you can fall asleep without any kind of light disturbing your REM.


    This sleeping mask features a memory foam nose cushion that contours to any nose shape and blocks out all light — so you can get those zzz's without being interrupted.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $19.95.

    5. These essential oils, so that you can create a unique cocktail of aromas that work for you.


    Essential oils can work wonders for your wellbeing, both mentally and physically. You can use them as massage oils, on fabrics or in a diffuser for optimum aromatherapy. This pack includes lavender, geranium, clary sage and frankinsense.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $20.99.

    6. This humidifier and diffuser, which you can use with your favourite essential oils to create a safe and snug environment for sleeping.


    This diffuser has seven different light settings for you to adjust to your mood, two different mist settings and ensures 10-16 hours of mist, so you can turn it on before bed without worrying about it burning out.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $42.99.

    7. This sound machine that encourages your best sleep, which is perfect if you've committed to getting your eight hours, but feel a little restless.


    This sound machine has 20 unique sounds that don’t loop. There’s also a sleep timer, so you don’t have to worry about it running all night.

    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it too." —Julia Willing

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $79.95.

    8. This LIFX Smart LED bulb, so you can set up customised bedtime mood lighting to get you ready for bed faster.

    Promising review: "LIFX lighting is the best purchase I've ever made – both for myself and as gifts for all my friends. Not only can you easily create really fun environments with lighting (party mode, relaxing mode, movie night mode), but it's also really good for things such as sleep hygiene. At 9 p.m. I turn on orange/red lighting and my body knows it's time to wind down and it's much easier to fall asleep. It's perfect if you need to switch your brain to work mode as well. There's a sleep timer, fun effects and a setting that makes the lighting react to the music you're playing! It's so easy to use and honestly it makes being at home so much more of a VIBE."

    Buy for $76.91 from Amazon Australia.

    9. This Kindle Paperwhite, because reading before bed is much better for you than scrolling through your social feeds.


    This Kindle is super light so your hands and wrists won't get tired when you're in bed and holding it up to your face. The built-in adjustable light also means you don't need to have a bedside lamp on to enjoy your pre-bedtime novel.

    It also connects to WiFi and gives you instant access to over five million e-books, some of which are COMPLETELY FREE.

    Not convinced? One of our colleagues from the States wrote a whole post on it here.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $199.

    10. This sleep scrub by Frank Body that is perfect if you're someone who likes to take a bath before bed.

    Frank Body

    Use this scrub to exfoliate your skin and rid it of dirt, dead skin cells and other nasties that you pick up throughout your day. Then, leave it on and soak in the luxurious essential oils it's infused with. It contains magnesium to relax your muscles and reduce inflammation, epsom salts to scrub away the nasties, lavender oil to calm your senses and nourish your skin and chamomile to soothe your skin and have it ready for sleepy time.

    Buy it from Frank Body for $18.95.

    11. This gel infused mattress topper that will conform to your frame and evenly distribute your weight on its surface.


    This mattress topper is gel-infused, meaning it will regulate temperatures — the perfect solution for summer's unbearable heat.

    Buy a double bed topper from Amazon Australia for $109 (available in single, double, queen and king).

    12. This comfortable AF 100% cotton pyjama set because sleeping in that old t-shirt isn't doing you or your skin any favours.


    Though usually I'm a big advocate for sleeping in the nude, during winter that can be a little hard. This adorable pyjama set is 100% cotton, so you won't overheat in it, but it'll keep you snug enough to get a great, shiver-free sleep.

    Buy the set from ASOS for $44 (available in sizes 4-18).

    13. This sleepy tea that is perfect to enjoy as you read a good book or get ready for bed.


    This tea is made from a lemon balm, lavender, jasmine blossom and rose petal blend that is super aromatic. It will relax your body and get it settled and ready for sleep.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $16.

    14. These period panties that means you can toss and turn to your heart's content without ending up with stained sheets.


    These super high-waisted undies can absorb up to four tampons worth of blood and the mesh panels actually mean they're super cute, so you won't feel like a complete dag when you wear them.

    Buy it from Thinx for $65.13 (available in sizes XXS-3XL).

    15. These blackout curtains if you're plagued by street lights that happen to be right outside your window.


    These blackout curtains not only block out sunlight, but they also help if you live on a busy street and are always hearing cars go by in the dead of night. They're also insulated to help keep heat outside where it belongs.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $34.99+.

    16. These blue light blocking glasses, because staring at a screen all day affects your sleep more than you think.


    The blue light from your screen can cause eye strain, headaches and inability to sleep, so if you experience any of these symptoms, you should pick these guys up ASAP!

    Buy a pair from Amazon Australia for $32.90.

    17. These fuzzy socks that will keep your feet warm while you snooze the night away.


    These socks are comfy, warm and cute AF, so you won't even be horrified if you have to wear them out because you accidentally hit snooze on your alarm one too many times. They're also made from 95% cotton, so your feet won't feel suffocated and sweaty in them.

    Buy them from ASOS for $7.

    18. This body pillow that will give you more support than any boyfriend ever could.


    This body pillow supports your neck, hips, waist, back and head. It's perfect for pregnant women, but could honestly be used by anyone who tends to suffer from heartburn at night, or even if you're just not able to get comfortable.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $69.99.

    19. And finally, this wake-up light alarm clock to ease you awake after your flawless slumber.


    This alarm clock simulates the sunrise and gradually gets brighter during a 30 minute period before your actual alarm goes off, so that by the time it does, you’re ready to hop out of bed.

    You can choose natural sounds for you to wake up to, like birds singing, ocean waves, a steady stream, beeping, wind bells, soft music, piano music or FM radio if you'd prefer some bangers to start your day.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $48.83.
