How to Make Your Bedroom Healthier (and Sexier)
So often we talk about removing things from our bedrooms to make them more serene, minimal, sleep-inducing—and we’re all for that. We’re also in favor of enhancing all our bedroom experiences—intimacy and connection as well as relaxation and sleep. The best bedroom is set up so we can concentrate on putting mind, body, and spirit toward (some of) the best things in life: sleep and sex and health.
CHOOSE TO SNOOZE
It could be that simple. These chews are formulated with melatonin, L-tryptophan, and vitamin B6, three ingredients that work synergistically to help “knock us out” on the occasional sleepless night.*
It’s more than a beautiful, sustainable, hand-knit blanket made with organic cotton yarn. It’s a gentle embrace that, thanks to its heavy weight, envelops and soothes the body, promoting deep relaxation.
Bedhead is totally sexy—when it’s deliberate. Waking up with tangled, frizzy hair is frustrating (and can mean it’s been damaged). These ultrasoft silk pillowcases help keep hair smooth and knot-free, no matter how much activity goes on between the sheets.
This lightweight but mighty portable sound machine is capable of minimizing the most irritating noises, from bustling urban streets to rowdy neighbors, with an internal fan that gently rocks you to sleep. It can even help drown out nagging thoughts.
Once a week, right before bed, swipe on this powerful overnight glow peel—the glow you wake up with lasts all week.
DAILY DETOX SHOT
Even after an incredibly relaxing night of rest, it’s possible to optimize your day even further with this powder that helps jump-start the body’s detoxification process with milk thistle extract; a nutrient blend of selenium, zinc, magnesium, glycine, and pantothenic acid; and powerful antioxidants resveratrol and vitamin C.*
A good robe can mentally transport you to another place. A chic hotel in the mountains. An airy house along the coast. And if it’s a really good robe—like this breezy, lightweight, gauzy cotton number by Coyuchi—a pied-à-terre in Paris.
It could be the difference between good sex and great sex. Clean and soothing, this lube is aloe vera–based, and it’s formulated to match the body’s natural lubrication.
With a few drops of essential oils, this ceramic diffuser emits a gentle steam that transforms the energy of the bedroom. And that energy can be whatever you like, from uplifting grapefruit to calming lavender. We’re partial to the goop Bundle—four bespoke blends, including Quiet, a grounding and soothing mix of ylang-ylang, clary sage, geranium, and amyris.
Though it may look like a regular cushion, it’s anything but. The wedge shape helps enhance your position during intimate moments, proving that a little tuck or tilt can have enormous impact.
Wearing this matching pajama set—comfortable, elegant, and made of 100 percent silk—feels almost like sleeping without anything on at all, plus it’s the perfect bed-to-desk-to-couch-party set.
Ten vibration modes. A self-heating function that gently warms to just above body temperature. Velvety-soft silicone curved at the perfect angle. And endless reasons to bring it into bed.
Lightly scented with lavender flowers, this luxe, hypoallergenic eye mask will inspire a new sleep ritual—one focused on deep, meditative relaxation.
This clinically tested eye cream helps firm and smooth the appearance of crow’s-feet, fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles for a fresh, visibly well-rested look.
Sheets don’t get enough credit. After all, they can be the thin difference between a so-so night’s rest and a deep, restorative night’s sleep. This set by Morrow is breathable, exceptionally soft, and made with OEKO-TEX, GOTS-certified organic cotton. You’ll thank them in the morning.
We aren’t always able to spend enough time outside soaking in the natural sunlight, meaning we miss out on all of its benefits like circadian stimuli—signs we should wake or sleep. During the day, this lamp supports alertness and productivity, and it transitions to sunset and nighttime modes in the evening to promote healthy sleep patterns.
