Read to the end to get 10 ideas for winding down in the 10 minutes between when you take a sleep strip and start to drift off to dreamland.
“It works quickly.” — Christina K.
The sleep strips are super simple to use. You peel one open, place the minty-herbal strip in your mouth and let it melt as you let yourself drift off! We know that time is always of the essence, so we deliver a time-tested herbal combo and melatonin in a format designed for our busy world.
Speaking of busy, let us give you the gift of time with The 7 Productivity Tips and Tricks You Need in Your Life Right Now.
“They were perfect.” — Cathy D.
She loved the herbal-minty taste and how they help you fall asleep and stay asleep (to wake up rejuvenated).* Since our strips don’t require any water, they’re great for anyone who wants sleep support with little effort. (That’s why you can also take them if you wake up in the middle of the night — there’s no need to even get out of bed!)

“You just pop it in your mouth and it melted quickly.” — Mary B.
Traditionally TCM herbs were simmered for hours. While we value that delivery method, we know that most people don’t have that kind of time in 2022. And if you’re working on improving your sleep hygiene, you need something that is easy and fast-acting. Mary was surprised that “it even tastes good!” Tasting herbs is important for your senses, but our Calm Down™ herbal blend is deliciously minty. That’s intentional, so you can take one at bedtime without having a weird aftertaste in your mouth.

“They knock you out within like 15 minutes with no grogginess in the morning.”* — Buck
He also called our strips a “solid product!” For better sleep, we believe in using more than just melatonin. The 36 mg of herbs in our strips embrace the power of balance and synergy, with herbs that support sleep in addition to the benefits of a 5 mg serving of melatonin. That means melatonin eases you to sleep, while Calm Down™, our proprietary blend of herbs, quiets your mind and body for restorative rest.
