Because of the constant urge to scroll endlessly through my Instagram feed or watch hilarious viral videos that my friends and I share in a group text, my sleep pattern is all over the place. I’m super lucky if I get six out of the recommended eight hours. And on those evenings when I do manage to climb into bed early, anxiety just won’t allow my mind to stop wandering.

Desperate to try almost anything to get a good night’s sleep, I ventured over to CAP Beauty, New York City’s natural beauty destination, to learn how to make a deep-sleep tonic. Aesthetician Cara Peloso pulled a selection of ingredients straight from the boutique’s well-lit shelves, such ashwagandha (aka Indian ginseng) and turmeric, which help to minimize stress and reduce inflammation (two important things necessary to get some zzzs).
