Lavender Sleep Spray

I have never had problems falling asleep. Sorry don’t mean to brag but….. it’s true. But I know that for so many of you falling asleep is a #struggle. I have heard so many people saying that by improving their sleep environment they got a much better night sleep. So today I have a recipe for something that will hopefully make the nightly struggle a little easier.

This DIY uses a lavender essential oil. Before I actually start I have to say this warning. Of the essential oils, lavender is definitely one of the safer ones. However, as with all oils, make sure to look for high quality and 100% pure oils. Always make sure to keep away from pets (especially cats) because they may have a bad reaction. Continue to research the risks/benefits if you’re concerned at all. With that disclaimer out there, I guess I can start with a clear conscious.

Things You’ll Need:
  • 6 TBSP water
  • 2 TBSP witch hazel (or vodka if necessary)
  • 10-12 drops of lavender essential oil
  • Spray Bottle

  • Pour the witch hazel (or vodka) and the water into the spray bottle and shake for 10-20 seconds.  
  • Add in the drops of water and again shake to ensure the lavender doesn’t settle to the bottom.
  • Spray on bedding and pillows and enjoy!

So this is the recipe! It’s super simple and I have already shared this with a ton of my friends who say it works like a charm! Comment your thoughts about it below and share a picture of  the finished product with us for a chance to be featured on social media.
