What’s the one thing that takes the number one slot on every list for feeling healthier, looking better, being more productive, and even being happier? SLEEP! It’s officially ‘new year, new you’ time, and to start things off on the ultimate right foot, we’re bringing a roundup of products all geared toward helping you get a better sleep. From essential oils to sleep masks, here’s what you need to start catching ZZZs like it’s your job in no time.
Sleep Well Restful Sleep Mist and Roller
Saje Natural Wellness, $19.95 and $26.95
Essential oils are trending for a reason – they work! – and you seriously can’t go wrong with Saje. Mist the Sleep Well formula onto your pillow or use the roller version to roll it onto the soles of your feet or your throat before bed. Not only will you and your bedroom smell amazing, but the mixture of chamomile, jasmine, and orange will help your body to relax and slip off to sleep.
Mother’s Little Helper organic tea
DAVIDsTEA, $16 for a tin or $10 for a box
The magic ingredient in this magical sleepy-time tea is affectionately referred to as “nature’s Valium.” Organic valerian is great for taking the edge of a stressful day, and together with chamomile, peppermint, and lemongrass, this tea is the perfect recipe for winding down to bedtime.
GNC Herbal Plus Natra Sleep
This natural formula contains a blend of passion flower, lemon balm, valerian root, chamomile flower, and green tea leaves to pack a concentrated punch that not only helps you to fall asleep, but promotes a deeper sleep once you’ve nodded off.
Bamboo pillow cases
Quilts Etc., $30
Don’t underestimate the power of your surroundings! Comfortable bedding can play a big role in helping you drift off to dreamland and stay there all night, and there is nothing softer to cuddle into than bamboo. Added bonus – opting for this eco-friendly material means your conscience definitely won’t be keeping you up at night.
Fuzzy hot water bottle
La Vie en Rose, $19.95
We don’t have to tell you that January in Winnipeg can tend to be a little frigid. Keep warm and soothe any aches and pains keeping you up with the world’s most snuggle-worthy hot water bottle.

If you’re a very light sleeper or you’re looking to catch some ZZZs while traveling, an eye mask can be so helpful in blocking out the world around you so that you can focus on nodding off. Choose an ultra-soft option that’s so comfortable, you’ll forget it’s there almost instantly.
