This simple spray recipe came from Karen Valentine, owner of The Collective Consciousness in Oakdale, NY. It is especially useful for anxiety induced insomnia. Though it can be diffused, she recommends mixing it into a spritz bottle to treat your pillow with.
Lavender Essential Oil
Vetiver Essential Oil
Water (bottled or boiled to remove impurities)
Witch Hazel (this is the bonding agent so vodka works a secondary substitute)
Fill your chosen container with the water leaving a little room for a few drops of essential oil. Three drops of each for a small bottle would suffice. It doesn’t hurt if extra is added as essential oil is mainly diluted to avoid skin irritation. Add just a drop of the bonding agent (let’s say 1 part if container is 8 parts). Spray on pillow before sleep!
