Crafting the perfect sleep experience
Each morning, when you open your eyes, you know: Did I get enough sleep? All too often, the answer is “no.” Whether it’s the kids, your stressful career or a simple overactive imagination, there is any number of reasons as to why you’re not getting enough sleep.
Sleep is one of the most basic human needs – but often one that is ignored until there’s a real problem. Sleep deprivation can have a number of hazardous effects on your health: impaired memory, weakened immunities, heightened perception of pain, and can lead to the development of depression. Lack of sleep can even seriously impair your motor skills, akin to being intoxicated.
If you are having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, not to worry. ELYSIAN is on the case. We joined with some of our partners to choose a few products that will help you get some much needed rest.
Aromatherapy has long been a tool to reduce stress and anxiety and to promote relaxation. This Zoe Ultrasonic Diffuser from Pilgrim comes with a remote control, so you can customize your experience to your preferences. This is not only a stylish, handmade night table acent, but paired with their Rest Collection of essential oils, it will calm the mind and get your body ready to doze off.
If you’re looking for something a little less long-lasting, you can always try this Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, allowing you to more rigidly control your aromatherapy. You can even travel with it if you have a hard time away from home.

BUILD YOUR BED
Another simple way to improve your sleep schedule is to “build the best bed” – one that will cradle you like the heavens do the clouds. ELYSIAN chose some of the most luxurious bed linens that are sure to make you sink in as soon as you hit the pillow.
Made with extra long-staple cotton, these Italian-imported sheets are a smooth, lush sateen. They’re so soft, you might even start shaving your legs everyday.

Starting at $895, Frette
A mink pillow is the best thing to snuggle with, especially when stuffed with down feathers, like this mink front pillow. If you don’t want to commit to a mink throw, try a pure silk pillowcase instead.

Whether you live in the city where sounds never stop or in the country where silence is oppressive, the final thing to help with your sleep schedule is this Dreamegg White Noise Machine. Its sleek appearance will blend right in, and it even works as a USB charger.
