Initially I admit I didn't think this product did assist me to fall asleep. I went into trying the product as being VERY hopeful, and a strong believer that it would work, due to many great reviews. (Also, we use the rescue remedy pastilles, and know these to be quite calming.) Much to my chagrin, initially, I didn't think the sleep spray worked well, However, it is doing something after all, because in time, I realized if I awaken very early morning, 4 am or 5 am (and can still have 3 or 4 hours in bed) - when I take it, I do seem to conk out more quickly, and not only that, my dreams appear much more vivid. I just ordered my second big bottle, as even though it goes a long way, I don't want to run out. I think it does help to calm the mind, which makes sleep easier to come by. This is applicable at night time as well, the calming thoughts, which does assist somewhat, I think. Overall, I rated this a 4 because it has definite, noticeable merit.
