The root cause of jetlag is the disruption of our body’s natural sleep/wake cycle. Along with plenty of sunshine during your destination’s waking hours and pitch dark (not even a nightlight) during sleeping hours, here are a few jet-lag remedies that truly work.


To Stay Awake
Northern Light Technologies’ TRAVelite

This versatile light panel emits 10,000 lux of light, offering a great way to receive the melatonin-reducing benefits of natural daylight to help you stay awake and feel more energised. A daily 30-minute light ritual is recommended for best results.


To Stay Awake
Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin Shower Oil

Following the light ritual, an invigorating cool-water shower with this refreshing body oil will wake a tired traveller right up, thanks to the citrus molecule that ‘explodes’ once it reaches the olfactory nerves, offering instant stimulation.


To Stay Awake
Aveda Chakra Balancing Body Mists

Numbered for the seven chakras, these aromatic oil-infused mists are ideal for an energising morning yoga session. Chakra 7 in particular helps one feel ‘strong’ and ‘unclouded’.


To Fall Asleep
Glo to Sleep

Offering soothing beta brain waves and a cool blue glow, this sleep therapy mask clears your mind of stress and worry to help attain that alpha brain-wave state, promoting relaxation and sleep.


To Fall Asleep
Neal’s Yard Remedies to Roll for Travel

This handy lipstick-sized roller abounds with essential oils that soothe anxiety, clear the mind, relieve headaches, and improve circulation. Rolled onto pulse points, it offers the perfect complement to the Glo to Sleep for a calming night-time ritual.


To Fall Asleep
Origins Peace of Mind on the Spot

Applied to the back of the neck, temples, and earlobes, this soothing, tingling formula works wonders for the headaches and tension that inevitably come with travel and jetlag.
