What do you do to try and fall asleep when sleep just won’t come? Do you try and read some boring book? Do you count sheep? Take a Tylenol PM? Put on some relaxing music? Watch a movie? Something else? Not being able to fall asleep is an awful problem to deal with, especially if it happens regularly. But all those falling asleep methods listed above could soon be replaced with a spray bottle. Yes, you did read that correctly – a product known simply as Sprayable Sleep is hitting it big on Indiegogo right now, and it purports to be exactly what it sounds like: A sleeping-aid you spray on your body. (That definitely beats counting sheep into eternity).
All the mist seems to contain is water, tyrosine, and melatonin. It’s good that it has melatonin in it, since that’s what your body already uses to help you sleep. Hey, nothing wrong with a little bit extra when the regular amount won’t do the trick; everyone deserves a good night’s sleep! The way it works is pretty simple; an hour before you want to fall asleep, you just spray it onto your skin and the melatonin and co. will supposedly get right to work, preparing your body to fall asleep.
When Sprayable Sleep first appeared on Indiegogo, they were asking to raise $15,000. They’ve since raised $172,384 as of this writing. You can pledge as little as $30 to get you some small bottles sometime early this summer.
