Leaving a five star review, one person wrote: "I have had problems falling asleep on & off for years. Tried quite a few remedies, essential oils, having a bath before bed, not drinking caffeine/alcohol in the evening - nothing worked long term. I had heard about magnesium being good to help with sleep problems but I didn't want to take it in tablet form.

"I saw this product & am so glad I gave it a go. It worked the first night I used it and every night since for almost a month. Within 30 minutes of applying it to my shoulders & neck I can feel myself dropping off & I sleep really well now."

"Never slept so well, wouldn't be without it now," echoed another.

Somebody rating it four out of five stars added: "Have had problems sleeping for many years. Read about this product and thought 'may as well try it' so far....have slept well after using it!! Hope it continues."

Obviously, what works for one person's insomnia might not for another, but at £9.95 a pop it's definitely worth a shot.
