Pillow Sprays are a great way to keep your sheets smelling fresh and to help ease any tensions before a long nights sleep. This recipe is easy to follow and gives you the option to create your own signature scents!


Combine the following in a small bowl, jar or measuring cup and then funnel into a 2-4 ounce spray bottle:

  • 1 ounce of Witch Hazel 
  • 1 ounce of distilled water
  • 30 drops of Essential Oils (I suggest combining 2-3!)


  • Lavender – one of the most popular ‘calming’ oils because it reduces stress and promotes a deep sleep.
  • Ylang-Ylang– has a very rich, floral scent that helps with relaxation and slows down your heart rate.     
  • Cedarwood  this has a woody, warm smell and is great for relieving anxiety.   
  • Bergamot  – has a citrusy aroma that soothes the nerves and assists with curing insomnia.
  • Roman Chamomile – reminiscent of chamomile tea, this is a relaxing oil that eases feelings of discontent.
