A spritz of calming essential oils onto your pillow has the power to transform your pre-sleep routine from “oh man, I only have 5 hours till I have to be up for work” to “awesome, I have 5 hours to snuggle in this lavender-scented dreamland”. I may be over exaggerating, but essential oils do have the ability to promote a good night’s rest. Each one of the oils in this DIY ZZZ sleep spray are known for their calming and relaxing qualities.
Essential oils have become a large part of our household as we make the effort to switch to more natural products. We have started only freshening the air with natural sprays or defusers. They work great, and I feel good knowing what’s in them isn’t harmful. It’s pretty awesome that with only a few simple ingredients and a glass bottle, I can create a spray that’s familiar scent actually helps me fall asleep faster!
