An Aldi shopper who struggles with poor quality sleep has revealed the one 'magic' buy that guarantees her a good night's rest.

The woman took to a Facebook fan group for the German supermarket to share her love for the Lacura lavender massage oil and its remarkable relaxing qualities.

"Just like a lot of other mums, I get midnight anxiety and don’t always get a full night sleep," the shopper wrote alongside a snap of her bottle.

She explained that on evenings when her husband had given her a food rub using the oil she always 'slept very well' without her usual 'midnight wakeups'.

She added that while it could be a coincidence, her light sleeper hubby also noticed he was experiencing a more restful slumber.

The woman speculated that the oil's snooze-inducing effect might have something to do with the floral fragrance.

"I know lavender is supposed to [help with sleep]," she wrote. "This oil is magic. Just thought this could help other fellow midnight owls."

A 2015 US study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine showed that participants who slept with a lavender essential oil patch on their chest experienced "better sleep quality" than those who didn't.

According to the response to the woman's post, she certainly has helped many fellow Facebook users who also suffer from sleepless nights.

"Thank you. I need this so much," wrote one in the comments.

"Thanks for sharing. I am off to Aldi to get some!" said another.

Others piped up with their own lavender tips, such as spraying pillows with lavender oil or using it in an essential oil diffuser before bed.

Unfortunately, it looks like the Lacura lavender oil was a past Aldi Special Buy and might not be readily available. However, several Facebook users suggested alternative options including the Body Shop's French lavender massage oil and Lush's Sleepytime range.
