Reset Your Bodyclock

An excellent product that integrates the best features of Lumie’s wake-up lights with a brilliant aromatherapy function, that helps you wake up refreshed to a ‘sunrise’ essential oil such as uplifting lemon, and go to sleep relaxed with a ‘sunset’ oil like lavender. Wake up lights that get brighter during the last 30 minutes of sleep have been proven to stimulate hormones that help us get up and go, whilst resetting the body’s natural rhythms to help you wake up feeling brighter and refreshed. The Bodyclock Iris also features adjustable time settings for sunset and sunrise, a continuous or intermittent mist diffusion, a choice of alarms, nightlight and snooze functions. Highly recommended.

£160. Available from John Lewis and Amazon, and a 30-day home trial through lumie.com
