Dreaming of a great night’s sleep? This natural herbal sleep aid will help you fall and stay asleep. Unlike a solo melatonin supplement, this spray additionally includes a proprietary blend of 5HTP and Valerian Root to relieve stress and anxiety. Use 10 minutes before going to bed and control your dose. Start with a few sprays and go from there—up to 14 in 24 hours. The formula is gluten-free with no fillers or binders, so it absorbs quickly—sleep tight. For more information, visit itspray.com
