Does anyone take the above? I hear it is very good to help u get to sleep. I simply not able to fall asleep without help, but would like to stay away from sleeping pills. Would appreciate any input.

Below is a link to the product with some consumer reviews. I've had mixed results with Melatonin products. It would be worth a try though IMO... you can buy Melatonin capsules very cheaply at Walmart, Walgreens, etc.

RE: sleep zone

What about trying lavender? It's fragrance is very soothing and relaxing. If you combine smelling it with relaxation exercises, I find it puts me to sleep pretty well, most nights.

RE: sleep zone

I use this occasionally. I did, in fact, sprayed my pillow last night. Hadn't been sleeping well this week, and I got a good nights rest last night.

Bath and Body Works sells it. And I highly recommend.

RE: sleep zone

I drink a cup of "Sleepy Time" tea, which tastes like a mint tea.

RE: sleep zone

I will tell you the recommended dosage of melatonin is 0.3-5 mg, so that product is a bit high. And that my son swears by melatonin (minus the odd dream sometimes), and I by Valerian (they are combined in this product). Lavender also helped my son sleep when he was a wee babe. Great stuff! I'll have to try Glenda's product. 'sides it smells fantstic!
