So, if counting sheep isn’t quite cutting it, we’ve rounded up the best sleep-inducing sprays that have been specially formulated to help you drift off. Bonne nuit.

In the words of brand creator Michelle Roques-O’Neil, “Sleep is the portal to our unconscious. It’s when we rest our minds and heal our bodies, but it’s also when we dream.
