It has been scientifically formulated to work in harmony with the natural nightly sleep cycle. The key ingredients used in the pillow mist have been picked for their specific properties that support and enhance each of the four key stages of sleep. 

Olverum Restful Sleep Pillow Mist

  • Bergamot Oil: helps stimulates the brain’s limbic system, to elevate mood as you settle down to sleep.
  • Lavender Oil : has been selected for its properties of improving sleep quality and enhancing the second stage of sleep during which REM, brain wave and muscle activity decrease. 
  • Geranium Oil: is used as it relaxes the mind and body by helping to activate the parasympathetic nervous system which further slows the heart rate, and calms and deepens the breath. 
  • Amyris Oil: helps in the third stage of sleep as well by helping deepen your sleep into the crucial slow-wave stages for healing, restoration, and maintaining daytime energy levels.
  • Roman Chamomile Oil: which is a natural hypnotic, maintains and lengthens the critical fourth stage of deep and restful sleep. 

Using the pillow mist is easy. Just two spritzes applied to linens can ease you into a trouble-free slumber, enhance the health benefits of deep sleep, and boost your daytime energy levels.
