Try simply spraying your pillow with one of these scents. I believe one of the plug-in air fresheners also has a formula in these scents.
Drinking chamomile tea about an hour before bed may also help you sleep. I've also found that taking Valerian helps me relax so I can sleep without leaving me feeling groggy in the mornings. [ ncblondie's advice column | Ask ncblondie A Question ]

fatalxheart answered Wednesday August 10 2005, 3:49 pm: Chamomile tea. Drink that before you go to bed.
Or you can take this vitamin called "Maletonin". I use that. Talk to your doctor about it first though!
Other than that, I recommend Chamomile tea (make sure there's no sugar). [ fatalxheart's advice column | Ask fatalxheart A Question ]
Mackenzie answered Wednesday August 10 2005, 3:20 pm: Certain scents trigger certain reactions to your body. Lavander is what makes people sleepy. You can buy Lavander candles, face wash, hand soap, body gel, body lotion... the possibilities are endless. What I have is a hand soap. Simply wash my hands with water, and lather up really good. My eyes start to close standing at the sink, so this stuff really works. I purchased mine at Bath & Body Works for about $5.75, which is a good price considering the amount I received. This was over a year ago now, but they might still carry these products. If not, department stores will for shore, and you're always bound to find something at Walmart. Goodluck!! =] [ Mackenzie's advice column | Ask Mackenzie A Question ]
Informant_Girl answered Wednesday August 10 2005, 2:14 pm: hmmm, i don't know about taking sleep aids of any kind - when i have trouble falling asleep, i go to sleep a little earlier and keep myself as relaxed as possible. trying to avoid any really stimulating activities right before bedtime (exercising, eating, watching an action movie) can also help, and sometimes, the good old count the sheep method is good too. sweet dreams.

Azngangsta answered Wednesday August 10 2005, 11:48 am: Sorry, I don't remember of any herbal stuff. But I do know that you shouldn't take sleeping pills. The herbal stuff is ok, is just that sleeping pills tend to interfer with REM sleep (the portion of sleep in which your dreams occur and refreshes your mind and body). I also know that when you do take an herbal pill to sleep, you should take it affter dinner, and at least 2 hours BEFORE you intend to go to sleep. And should probably aim at 10 hours of sleep. (Be careful though, if you take it too late, you won't be able to wake up the next morning, and that stuff knocks you out!
