I was actually gifted a pillow mist/spray from Bath & Body Works a few months ago and really enjoyed the scent but I just didn’t feel comfortable using it because it was filled with synthetic ingredients.
So I did what I always do and decided to make my own DIY version with 100% natural ingredients.
It smells wonderful and it works great too!
How Does Sleep Spray Work?
Sleep spray works really well because it is filled with relaxing essential oils. The essential oils help to calm the mind and relax the body.

Can You Use Sleep Spray When Pregnant?
Although the essential oils above are considered generally safe for pregnant women I would suggest talking to your doctor before using.
Can Sleep Spray Be Used For Babies or kids?
Once again, although the essential oils used in this pillow sleep spray are generally considered safe for children I would recommend talking to your doctor before using on children younger than 5 years old.
For children 5 years old and older I would suggest only using half of the recommended drops of essential oil and only using 2 spritz.
