What e3 customers have to say…
I have always had sleep issues – since childhood. I have tried everything and anything that I have heard helps. Once I was working here, Caryn said go smell. I smelled Sleeptime, but it just wasn’t for me. Then I smelled Relax and my whole body said wow. Since then, I have made a spritzer with Relax and water and I spritz my pillow every night. The first night, I asked my husband if he wanted me to spritz his pillow and he said no. A couple of nights later, he asked if I would “voodoo” his pillow too. So I spritz both our pillows every night. – Wendy
