5 Sleep Essentials Every Badass Black Girl Needs to Add to Her Routine

A great night’s sleep is important to help you feel and look your best. We’re bringing you five sleep essentials that you need to add to your night-time routine.

1. Pure Silk Pillowcase by ForvrMood

The FORVR Mood silk pillowcase is one of our faves. Silk pillowcases are known to have anti-aging properties for the skin (great for wrinkles) and anti-frizz properties to prevent a bad hair day! After this purchase, it will be smooth sailing (pun intended) for a good night's sleep. This pillowcase also comes in multiple colors for every mood.



2. Regalivy Silk HeadWrap

A Black-owned company that produces silk bonnets and headwraps with a feminine and afro-chic aesthetic. We all know that hair bonnets are essential for protecting our hairstyles. Silk also helps to prevent breakage and helps to keep your hair hydrated. RegalIvy is inspired by sub-Saharan Africa and celebrates women as Queens which is exactly how you should sleep.



3. Pacifica Lavender Moon Body & Pillow Mist

Lavender is great for aromatherapy. It’s said to have many benefits such as promoting calmness and wellness. It also helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and is a great sleep aid. This Lavender moon body and pillow mist is vegan and cruelty free so you can sleep at ease.



4. Copper Wings Candle Co.

This Black-owned candle business brings the best candles (with the best names). Our favorite candle? Sunday Serenade. With a dream-inducing concoction of essential oils such as Rosemary, Sage and Lemongrass, you’ll have a cozy night sleep.



5. Reflection Journal

It’s never a bad idea to reflect on your day. Journaling your day is a peaceful process that can help you sort out your feelings, goals, and ideas for a good night’s sleep (and an even more successful day tomorrow). Journaling helps you remain still and present in the moment. In the busyness of life, a few moments of stillness is a good thing.



Sleep is important to your health and wellbeing. We want you to know that we’re rooting for you and we hope that our five essentials become your top favorites! Drop down below some night-time essentials that you can’t sleep without.
