Moreover, lack of sleep can be a major cause for a number of serious health issues. This means that we must try to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep during the night, in order to function properly during the day.
Because of the importance of this issue, most people are constantly trying some alternative ways to improve their sleep, like Himalayan salt lamps, feng shui, different natural drinks etc.

A little bit about the ingredients and how they work
Magnesium oil – is often very helpful for promoting sleep but can also cause tingling on the skin, especially if a person is deficient. Magnesium is not only responsible for over 300 chemical reactions within the body, it also acts as an amazing antidote to stress. It’s been called as “the most relaxing mineral in the body” by different health experts. Basically, the more of it you have, the more relaxed you will be, which in turn increases your chances of getting a good night’s sleep.
Lavender oil – is so effective that just putting a few drops on your pillowcase might be enough to help you enjoy your dreams. Simply smelling the plant is enough to help you relax, so imagine how powerful lavender essential oil can be.
Chamomile oil – is also one of the most effective ones to use for insomnia. It has both sedative and relaxing properties, and it’s often used to deal with nervous tension.
