  • Chamomile: Famous for its calming effects, chamomile promotes relaxation and encourages a peaceful night's sleep.
  • Ylang-ylang: This exotic floral scent instills a sense of peace and tranquility, helping you to drift off to sleep.

Experimenting with Blends

When crafting your sleep spray, don't be afraid to experiment with different essential oil combinations. Blending various oils can help to create a more personalized sleep aid tailored to your specific needs. Consider exploring different relaxing oil combinations, such as:

  • Lavender and cedarwood for deep, rejuvenating sleep
  • Ylang-ylang and chamomile to ease stress and anxiety
  • Vetiver and lavender for easing mental tension and racing thoughts

  • A 4 - 8oz glass spray bottle (preferably blue or amber to protect the oils from sunlight)
  • Distilled water
  • Witch hazel or vodka (to help disperse the oils evenly)
  • Your chosen essential oil blend
  • A small funnel (optional, but helpful)
