Alexis Antoniades, Senior Social Media Manager at goop, leans back on her favorite bed.
In partnership with our friends at Avocado Green Mattress
For many of us, sleep and sex have suffered over the past year – and it’s time to take the bedroom back. It starts with leaving screens, work and exercise equipment elsewhere and then gets more interesting: From the ultimate GOTS certified organic mattress to the softest new pajamas and the best new sleep technology to glowing skin care and sexy candles these are some brilliant new ways to tweak the bedroom to make you feel sexiest and sleepiest (not at the same time, of course).
Do over your bed (and nightstand)
The ultimate mattress
The definition of dreamy: sleeping on 29 layers of ethically sound, GOTS certified organic materials – including cashmere, wool from Indian heritage, and Peruvian royal alpaca – and reclaimed and sustainably grown hardwoods, all handcrafted by a team of artisans. We partnered with Avocado Green Mattress – a certified B Corp whose values perfectly match those of goop – to create this most luxurious bed in the world. Handcrafted over hundreds of hours in avocados GOTS and GOLS certified workshop in Los Angeles, it’s also certified carbon neutral. You can customize almost anything to it, too. Regardless of your sleeping style, problems or preferences, this is your bed. Those of us lucky enough to have tried have since dreamed of the experience – there is nothing that approaches the feeling at all.

Data for better sleep
Both GP and our Senior Director of Science and Research, Gerda Endemann, swear by the Oura Ring, a sleek, portable health tracker that provides 24/7 feedback on the quality of your sleep and how ready you are for the day ( based on your sleep) and physical activity. It collects data on your body’s natural signals: resting heart rate, heart rate variability, breathing rate, body temperature, night movement, sleep quality as well as light, deep and REM sleep periods. The Oura app then provides clear, actionable insights – for example, how to optimize your habits for better sleep. (In a recent independent review, the Oura Ring was one of the two most accurate devices on the market for measuring sleep efficiency. Many other devices overestimate or underestimate.) Wondering if that last glass of wine was possibly a little disruptive to sleep? Find out.

Fresh air all night long
Dust, dog hair, germs floating in the air – the Air Doctor portable air purifier takes care of everything. It is equipped with a damped fan (no sleep interruptions occur here), an air ionizer (to deal with smelly smells) and a sensor that automatically adjusts the filter level based on the air quality in the room (whoa).

Sipping something warm before bed can feel calming and gently tell you it’s time to relax. This golden milk with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper and coconut milk is a light powder that mixes wonderfully with any plant milk. Turmeric is traditionally used and widely praised for its ability to promote balance, wellbeing, and a healthy immune system. This mixture is warming and a little bit spicy.

This lubricant warmer is downright ingenious. Simply place one of the accompanying Pulse capsules in the warmer, press a button, wait a minute, and hold your fingers under the dispenser for two seconds. It delivers an evenly measured drop of heated lubricant to your fingers. (If you’ve ever handled a lube bottle that has been self-lubricated, you’ll appreciate this feature.) The warmer will automatically turn off an hour after it’s last used and has a locking feature so it never goes out when you put it on Not. This set contains a warmer and four sleeves H2Oh !, a water-based lubricant that is smooth, toy-friendly and made without parabens or added fragrance. When you’re ready to top up the lubricant, there’s a refill for that.

Nightly foot massage
Another moisturizer with a big overnight payout is the foot cream. This is thick and rich: Shea butter, jojoba oil and avocado oil provide intensive moisture, while moisturizing plants such as distilled myrtle and tea tree oil cleanse and prevent odors. It feels amazing, smells subtly floral, and gets even the roughest, driest skin into shape.

Pure silk for hair and skin
Sleeping on a pure mulberry silk pillowcase prevents breaks and split ends, preserves a blowout like nothing else, and makes your skin smoother than if you slept on cotton, linen, or any other fabric. This set also includes our other favorite silk essentials for sleep: a sleep mask that soothes your eyes and skin by blocking out light, and two sizes of hair ties that are amazingly gentle on your hair and never leave the slightest bump or kink left behind (even after a long, intensive yoga class or run).

Chic, cozy PJ’s
The only thing more appealing than a matching pajama set? A matching set in a charming parrot print. And made of 100 percent organic cotton, it is also quite comfortable and breathable. Lazing around, sleeping in it, staying up all night and watching Netflix in it …

Best lip balm
This ultramoisturizing, clean lip balm has the creamiest, smoothest glide texture that’s luxury on the lips. It took three years to become comfortable, nutritious, powerful, and subtly fragrant: “It’s worth it!” Says GP. “My lips get very dry, especially in winter, and this balm soothes and moisturizes like nothing else.” It has been consumer tested and is dermatologist approved. It consists of rich vegetable oils of the highest quality – coconut, argan, castor seeds, jojoba and sunflower – as well as pomegranate extract and shea butter. It’s just as incredible for chapped, chapped, or dry lips as it is for everyday (and it comes in the most adorable packaging).

Drinking golden milk (or really anything) from this handmade mug is a pure pleasure. The glazed porcelain was designed in Kaneko Kohyo, a centuries-old ceramic workshop that originally specialized in Shinto and Buddhist altarpieces. It mimics the warm, rustic look of hand-molded clay. The curved handle lies comfortably in the hand. And a practical bonus: it is both microwave and dishwasher safe.

Chocolate Mint Sleep Chews
Occasional sleep disturbances are the order of the day and go beyond the next morning. We wanted a solution that we would look forward to at the end of a long day.

Water, water everywhere
Few things are worse than waking up in the middle of the night with a dry throat and no water around. But that often leaves us weighing the alternative of getting out of bed to get something. That is why this hand-blown glass jug and the matching water glass are our new staple foods for bed.

Do over the bathroom as well
NasalAid is designed to keep the nasal passages open while you sleep. It can help you breathe better overnight by temporarily relieving the temporary causes of breathing difficulties such as occasional constipation. Opening the nasal passages can reduce snoring and also lead to better sleep. (And if your sleeping partner is the snorer, you may also get a better night’s sleep.) Since the inner structure is made of thin, spring-hardened steel wire, it can be customized to fit your body: you simply adjust the device for a good fit by sliding the two Flatten free ends, insert these ends into your nose and breathe calmly.

Help with mild night sweats
If the quality of your sleep has changed over the years, hormonal fluctuations can contribute. Madame Ovary is a nutritional protocol containing herbs, adaptogens, and vitamins designed for women approaching or approaching menopause. Goop editors swear by this product to help ease the transition into menopause. *

A warm bath
Altitude Oil is a popular magical aroma oil from OG Goop: we bring it everywhere and breathe in the blend of lavender, pine, patchouli, peppermint, lemon myrtle and more to clear our minds, invigorate our senses and all from the air to improve trips to mediation sessions. Acupuncturist and aromatherapist Annee de Mamiel combined her bestselling oil with pink salts from the Himalayas, Epsom and Dead Sea to achieve a similar transformation in the context of a warm, relaxing bath. To say it’s absolute heaven is an understatement.
