A soothing linen spray with lavender and vetiver essential oils is a natural way to help promote relaxation, reduce stress, and enjoy a more restful sleep.
Lavender is the holy grail of natural sleep aids; it can help those who struggle with sleep to relax and fall asleep faster and can even help relax nervous tension and reduce stress. Vetiver essential oil has a deep, herbal fragrance that pairs perfectly with lavender and its properties as a natural sedative can also help to promote sleep, reduce stress and soothe anxiety. Try adding a few spritzes of this calming combination into your nighttime routine and then settle back into your lovely new pillows for a perfect peaceful oasis!
Lavender Linen Spray
1.5 oz vodka or witch hazel
20 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops vetiver essential oil
7 oz distilled water
A few springs fresh lavender, optional
Add all the ingredients except the fresh lavender to a glass spray bottle. Screw on the lid and shake well to combine. Then add in the fresh lavender sprigs if desired.
Just before bedtime, spritz your pillow two to three times, or as much as you prefer. You want the scent to be soothing, but not overpowering.
Important: While the diluted essential oils and alcohols shouldn’t mark your sheets, it is recommended that you do a patch test first on a piece of the fabric that is not noticeable. We do not suggest that this solution be applied to any other surfaces or to any persons. If you have respiratory difficulties, allergies or sensitivities to any of these ingredients, we recommend that you check with your doctor before using this solution.
