If the last decent sleep you had happened in the womb, raise your hand. With our super-busy lives, constantly looking at our phones, and basic all-round chaos, Zzzzzs can sometimes evade us. But getting enough sleep is vital for overall health. That’s why we’ve rounded up five products that will assist with getting some much-needed shut-eye, the natural way.

Bio-Sil Sleep Aid

A natural sleep aid that will help to ease the effects of sleep deprivation, allowing you to slip into a deep slumber. The best part? You won’t feel groggy the next day. Available at Faithful to Nature

Better You Magnesium Oil

Not only is magnesium essential for brain and heart health, it can help with sleep too. Studies show that magnesium’s relaxing effect may be partly due to its ability to regulate the production of melatonin, a hormone that guides your body’s sleep-wake cycle. Simply spray this on your skin, massage it in and feel yourself relax. Available at Dis-Chem.
