Essential Oil Pillow Spray | DIY


I love using an essential oil diffuser to help me relax. It’s effective, but sometimes I feel like it could be doing more. So, I started Googling new ways to use essential oils, and that’s when I found the idea of a DIY essential oil pillow spray! This is truly such an amazing idea, you guys. Basically, all you have to do is fill a small spray bottle with water and a few drops of relaxing essential oils and then spray it on your pillow! This spray covers your pillow with an aroma that induces relaxation and supports a healthy sleep pattern.

I was so excited to make this spray and try it out. Of course, I was a little skeptical, maybe people were hyping this DIY up a little too much? Nope! It truly works just like everyone says it does. It pretty much turned my pillow into a relaxing cloud that I never wanted to leave. The scent definitely sticks around for a few days. I probably re-spray this on my pillows 2-3 times a week, but it really depends on personal preferences.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Lavender essential oil
  • Cedarwood essential oil
  • Water
  • Small spray bottle

Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. Fill a spray bottle up about ¾ of the way with water.
  2. Add six drops of lavender into the bottle.
  3. Add six drops of cedarwood into the bottle. (Both of these essential oils are the best when it comes to promoting sleep and relaxation.)
  4. Close your bottle and shake it up a bit.
  5. Lightly spray 2-3 sprays on your pillows.
  6. Respray on your pillows throughout the week as needed.
