Blissful Rest Sleep Patches work by delivering sleep-promoting substances through the skin:
- Transdermal delivery: Ingredients in the patch slowly diffuse through the skin and into the bloodstream, potentially affecting sleep patterns.
- Targeted delivery: Patches can be placed on specific areas like the wrists or behind the ears, which may be linked to certain sleep-regulating pathways.
Common ingredients found in sleep patches may include:
- Melatonin: A hormone naturally produced by the body that regulates sleep-wake cycles.
- Lavender essential oil: Possesses potential calming and sleep-promoting properties.
- Valerian root extract: Traditionally used for anxiety and sleep problems, with limited scientific evidence.
- Chamomile: May have calming and stress-reducing effects, potentially aiding sleep.
- Magnesium: A mineral involved in various bodily functions, including sleep regulation.
