Lavender essential oil is often referred to as the number one oil to always have on hand in your household, due to its versatile uses.
It’s known to induce sleep, relieve stress and anxiety, treat acne, relieve pain, boost immunity, treat eczema, promote hair growth, and much much more.
Lavender essential oil is most popular for its aromatherapy benefits. I don’t think I have met one single person who doesn’t like the smell of this oil.
The smell is like nothing I have smelt before. It has a floral, yet sweet scent that honestly does help to put you in a relaxed state of mind.
Seriously right after I spray this DIY Lavender Pillow Mist, I instantly feel soft, so calm, and serene.
It’s amazing how fast this stuff works.
Every night I use this spray right before I go to sleep and let me tell you. I’m out snoozing away fairly quickly.
This recipe has 4 ingredients. One of them being witch hazel.
Witch hazel is a natural astringent. It’s most known for a good cleanser or toner for the skin. I add witch hazel to my aromatherapy sprays because it helps combine the essential oils with water.
And if you are using this as a pillow spray, it’s great for your facial skin as you lay on your pillow.
I like to use distilled water for my sprays because it is purer than regular faucet water, but if you don’t have distilled water on hand or don’t have the time to make it over the stove, regular water will work.
- I included 1 standard size label that will fit on most jars.
- I use these Avery Full Sheet Stickers for all of my handmade health & beauty products.
- 2 tbsp unscented witch hazel
- 50 drops lavender essential oil
- 2 tsp dried lavender flowers
- distilled water
- 4 oz amber or cobalt glass spray bottle
Using a small funnel, pour the witch hazel and lavender essential oil into your glass bottle.
Add dried lavender flowers.
Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water and shake to mix all of the ingredients.
Place your free printable label onto your bottle and that’s it!
Spray a couple sprays on your pillow or bed right before you are planning to go to sleep.
Relax as the aromatherapy takes you to a place of lavender fields forever.
I recommend using an amber or cobalt glass bottle since there are essential oils in this recipe.
Essential oils can burn or deteriorate plastic if not diluted with a carrier oil properly.
Popular sizes of these glass bottles are 2-ounce and 4-ounce. In this recipe, I used a 4-ounce bottle. If you plan to use a 2-ounce bottle then cut the recipe in half.
The shelf life of this mist is one month.
This spray has become a necessity in my household. After you try this, I am confident it will be yours too!
