Hello again! Today's post is all about falling asleep and attempting to stay awake. "What is sleep?" I hear you all cry. I know alot of us have trouble catching those z's so why do we find it so hard to nod off? Maybe it's because we're glued to our phones until the early hours of the morning (totally justifiable as you never know what gossip you'll miss). Even if we put our phones down, isn't it weird how all the things we've forgotten to do just pop into our head just as it touches the pillow? I have been known to wake up in the middle of the night panicking incase we forgot to put the bin out. Isn't that the most boring thing for my brain to be worrying about? The part that is often overlooked is waking up which is equally as hard. My brain often incorporates my alarm sound into my dreams so that I can sleep right through it. Good for me but not so good for my boyfriend. 

I was kindly sent these Temple Spa Quietude* and Spiritude* aromatherapy sprays to make winding down and waking up a little bit easier. These sprays have been recommended by a multitude of magazines such as Glamour, Cosmopolitan and even Psychologies due to the benefits of using them. I couldn't pass up the opportunity for a well deserved sleep and an energised day. I'm a huge fan of using aromatherapy/essential oils in the bath to calm me down (especially lavender oil and tea tree oil) but I hadn't tried anything to wake me up before. Let's see how I got on shall we?

Temple Spa Spiritude - Wake Me Up


They say

SPIRITUDE is a body and room essence with a zesty fresh aroma of Mediterranean essential oils including lemon, passion fruit, bergamot, grapefruit, peppermint and ginger. The wonderfully energising fragrance is just the thing when you need help to restore your equilibrium and lift flagging spirits. Spray this uplifting mist lightly on the body, on pulse points and in the space around you. A touch of vitality when you’re lacking energy, or feeling a little tired. The ultimate pick-me-up!

Thoughts

Let's start with Temple Spa's Quietude as it is my favourite! I spray this on my pillows and wrists to calm me down before I go to sleep. The scent is strong but not in a breath catching kind of way. It's just a noticeable smell. I can definitely pick out the lavender in the spray so if you're not a fan then I'd give it a sniff first. Personally I can't get enough of lavender so I've been spraying whenever I can. I have't tried this on my warm towels yet but when I have a chance to do a pamper day I'll definitely give it a go. I find that with this spray, it doesn't send me straight to sleep but it distracts me from thinking of random thoughts as I concentrate more on breathing the smell in. It sounds weird but it really works to calm me down. My boyfriend even asks if I'll give his pillow a spritz too.

Temple Spa's Spiritude definitely has the strongest scent of the two but the mix of lemon and orange make it more appealing. This one is very zesty with the citrus scents making it perfect for giving you an uplifting boost in the mornings. Anyone who is a fan of Lush's orange scented products will know how invigorating citrus scents can be. I spray this one if I'm having a really sluggish day. You know the ones where you just want to lie on the couch surrounded by chocolate and blankets but really you have to do a zillion and one things. It helps me to focus for a while so this is handy for when I need to get something important out of the way. I should keep this one by my bedside as I probably could benefit from spraying it first thing in the morning aswell.

The Quietude mist is definitely my favourite out of the two as it takes my mind off everything. It really calms me down and encourages me to drift off quicker than usual. Aromatherapy is such a good way to influence your mood. You can create your own concoction for bath time using essential oils or if you fancy having a quick fix, aromatherapy sprays are a lovely alternative. The Temple Spa Wake Me Up And Wind Me Down Duo were part of the Mediterranean Christmas gift selection but I know you can buy these in singular bottles which are perfect if you're just after one or the other. I'll leave a link for Quietude (30ml £7/100ml £24) here and a link for Spiritude (100ml £24) here if anyone is interested. I'd love to hear your recommendations for aromatherapy sprays so let me know what helps you.

Share your tops tips for getting a good night's sleep in the comments. Maybe we can help each other out!

  2. I love Quietude it really does help with my sleep, especially as just going through the menopause and my sleep is affected. I also use "Repose" which is Temple Spa - a moisturiser to use at night with the smell of lavender. Put on pulse points too. My fav TS product

  27. These sound absolutely beautiful. I'm such a huge fan of aromatherapy and although I've tried the oils and candles, I've yet to try a spray so I'm definitely interested in these! This was a great review Sophie. I hope you're having a lovely week so far! XO -Kim

  28. Sounds like great sprays, I really like the one which calm you down, because personally I find myself as "too much night-thinking person", so I think that this spray should help me to fall asleep quicker than usual :)

  29. Quietude sounds like my kind of therapy, seems very relaxing, I don't really like strong scent when I'm going to bed, but great review.

  30. I don't have problems sleeping (touch wood) but these sound great! Good to know that they help as I've never used anything like that but I got my mum some This Works Deep Sleep stuff for Christmas and I don't think she's even used it!

  31. I absolutely love spraying my pillows with a lavender scent to catch some zz's so I can see this working as a good relaxing agent. :) I've developed a habit of reading before bed (on kindle, with lights off) which helps me doze off. My body is very used to a "ritual."

  34. These sound great! I have a similar, lavender-scented pillow spray from M&S and don't find that it does much. I'm definitely not a morning person, so could benefit from any product that claims to wake me up and energise me!xx

  36. I've been hearing about these pillow sprays lately so I'm glad you tried them out :) It's awesome that you could concentrate on the smell of it to fall asleep. I often try to concentrate on my breathing. The wake me up one sounds like it smells great too
