The combination of heat and extended daylight hours can wreak havoc on even the best sleepers. With more hours of light each day, melatonin is released later and for less time, which in turn can make sleep more difficult and prompt earlier wake times. Compound this with hot temperatures, air conditioned air, and pollutants such as wildfire smoke, and the result is increased sleep difficulty during summer for many people. Thankfully, products exist to help. Here are some of the best sleep products to promote more restful summer sleep for everyone in your family.

Dyson Purifier Cool Autoreact™ TP7A Purifying Fan, $549.99

Summer doesn’t bring just heat — in many areas it also brings higher levels of air pollution and wildfire smoke. Accordingly, finding a bedroom fan that provides both cool and filtered air is ideal. The Dyson Purifier Cool Autoreact™ TP7A Purifying Fan works as both a fan and air filter and is perfect for bedroom use because it has an ultra-quiet sleep mode. The air purifier is powerful enough to filter the air in the entire bedroom and removes 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size. Activated carbon removes VOCs, helping to target harmful gases in wildfire smoke. The filter also has an LCD display to show up-to-the-second air quality readings for the room. To top it all off, the fan is aesthetically pleasing and provides gentle yet powerful airflow that will help to cool your bedroom by projecting up to 77 gallons of air per second and oscillating up to 350 degrees.

Tree Napper Cooling Weighted Blanket by Bearaby, $269

Weighted blankets are helpful sleep aids for many people, especially for those who struggle with anxiety and/or insomnia — which can both be worse during hot summer months. While heat is the main reason many people ditch their weighted blankets in summer, Bearaby has a solution: the Tree Napper Cooling Weighted Blanket. Made from natural eucalyptus fibers and organic cotton, the blanket lives up to its name. It’s both soft and cool to the touch and has good airflow thanks to the looped knit design. Weighted blankets have been shown to increase melatonin and serotonin production while decreasing cortisol levels to help the body relax and experience better sleep. And, Bearaby manufactures its weighted blankets sustainably out of biodegradable materials for added peace of mind.

Chill Pillowcase by Discover NIGHT, $60

For sleepers who struggle with night sweats and heat, keeping a cool head can be a challenge. This Chill Pillowcase by Discover NIGHT is here to help. Made from rayon sourced from bamboo and nylon, the fabric is cooler than most fibers used in pillowcases and helps to wick away moisture — which is also good for keeping skin clear. As a bonus, the super soft fabric helps to prevent bedhead and hair breakage (and keep curls from going wild overnight!). With an average user review of 4.9 out of 5 stars, this pillowcase passes the test of helping to keep sleepers cooler at night.

LURE Original Premium CBD Oil, $95

Many people find CBD oil to be calming before bed and this LURE Original Premium CBD Oil is formulated with 1,000 MG of non-intoxicating CBD for ultimate relaxation. Flavored with mint, the oil has a mildly pleasant taste and an instantly relaxing effect. To make it even better, the hemp-derived full spectrum CBD is organically-grown in the United States.

Uncle Bud’s CBD Dog Calming Chews, $29.99

People aren’t the only ones who have a harder time sleeping during summer. Dogs can be more restless on hot nights and this can be a nuisance if you room share with your pooch. The solution? Try Uncle Bud’s CBD Dog Calming Chews. Formulated with 10MG of CBD per chew, the dosage can be adjusted based on your dog’s size and needs. The chews also include valerian root, turmeric, and chamomile for extra calming effect and are grain-free and THC-free for concerned pet parents.
