I highly recommend to anyone in a noisy environment.”

Lighting Science Good Night LED Household Light Bulbs
What if all that was required to get a decent night sleep was a smart lightbulb? Sounds improbable, but science can back it up. Originally developed for NASA astronauts, this bulb filters out “blue light”—rays emitted by electronics and energy-efficient lightbulbs—which in turn supports your body’s melatonin production and promotes a healthy circadian rhythm.
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray
An all-natural pillow spray that'll lull us into a deeper, more restful sleep? We were skeptical, too. But the proof is in the pudding: 89% of users in an independent study fell asleep faster and 92% felt more alert the next morning. Sign us up!
Moon Juice Dream Dust
This sleep tonic contains a healing combination of vegetables, fruits, petals, and herbs to promote a deeper sleep. Some of the heavy-hitting ingredients include zizyphus spinoza, a phytochecmical that aids the nervous system in adapting to environmental and physical stressors, and polygala, a herb that naturally relaxes the mind.
