This Works Sleep Spray Review
Do you know anyone who actually gets the right amount of sleep?
Me neither. Our lives gets too busy and so as a result sleep becomes the last thing we prioritize.
It’s why there are seemingly endless amounts of sleep aids out there. Most either don’t work or are prescription medications. I wanted to try something natural that I didn’t have to ingest or apply to my skin.
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray became the perfect choice – completely by accident, keep reading to see why…

What is pillow sleep spray?
Sleep spray is a liquid in a misting bottle that you mist on top of your pillow in order to inhale the fragrance(s) and reap the benefits.
In this case – the pillow mist is made with lavender and other relaxing aromatherapy fragrances to send you off to Slumberland.
Why to fall in love with this lavender pillow spray…
Well… because, “This Works”!
Sorry – couldn’t help myself, haha – anyway…
The claim is that you will have a great night’s sleep and feel more refreshed in the morning.
They took a study of 100 subjects who once used prescriptions as sleep-aids, they found that…
97% slept better
89% fell asleep faster
98% felt more refreshed in the morning
I was skeptical but I always have a difficult time falling asleep, it usually takes almost an hour. I wanted to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. So I thought I’d give it a try, it turned out to be the best lavender pillow spray I’ve used, period.
It helped me drift to sleep faster. I could truly feel it working. I’ve done some of my own testing and I seem to start falling asleep anywhere between 5-15 minutes now.
I’m not sure it actually fully keeps me asleep but I normally wake-up several times a night, and that amount has gone down – some nights it doesn’t happen at all.
And if you’re wondering, yes – I find myself feeling more rested when I wake-up. Probably because I’m gaining at least an hour of rest.
The only possible problem I can find with it – would be if you’re allergic to any of the ingredients. And since you are laying your face on the surface where the product is sprayed, it could become irritating. However, even with my ultra-sensitive skin – I still haven’t had an issue.
How to use pillow spray for deep sleep:
Pump the spray nozzle 2-3 times to cover one side of your pillow case. Let dry for a few minutes, after that, repeat on the opposite side of the pillow in case you move a lot in the night.
I like to create a fine mist by holding the bottle about five inches above my pillow case. This helps disperse the liquid more evenly and efficiently, saving you money too.
How does it measure up to similar products?
So, while I haven’t tried every lavender sleep spray on the market, I have tried quite a few and This Works is by far better.
Other spray I tried pretty much just made my bedding and sometimes my bedroom smell like “fake” or synthetic lavender for a few hours. They made no change to my sleeping patterns whatsoever.
I mentioned earlier how finding this deep sleep spray was a “happy accident”. I actually received it as a sample from a random trip to Blue Mercury. However, after using it (literally) just once it became a part of my nightly ritual(s). To sum it up, I purchased a bottle immediately and will absolutely stick with it.
