Get Better Sleep With A Proper Pillow & DIY Lavender Pillow Spray

Lavender Pillow Mist & Linen Spray Recipe - Musthavemom.com
Sleep is a precious commodity. For most moms it comes in limited supply so when we can lay down and sleep it’s imperative that we get a good night’s rest! I use this lavender pillow mist recipe to spritz my pillow each night and help me fall to sleep quickly. It’s really easy to mix up and also doubles as a linen spray to freshen up your linens and get them smelling amazing. Skip the chemical laden softeners and opt for this natural scent on your sheets and towels instead!

To make this spray you will need a 2oz or 4 oz glass spray bottle. You can order them for really cheap on Amazon. Then just add a pinch of salt to the bottle first. Then add 10-15 drops of Lavender essential oil. Now top off your bottle with distilled water (purified water will work fine too!). Shake it a little to mix it up and you are ready to spritz your way to a more relaxing and restful sleep. It smells so good!

Use the Proper Pillow to eliminate neck pain and poor sleep

Another key to getting good rest is having the correct pillow. There is nothing worse than sleeping on a bad pillow. I personally struggle with neck alignment issues and I’ve had nights that I wake up after sleeping on the wrong kind of pillow and I can’t even turn my head because my neck is out of alignment and hitting a nerve. This is then followed by several chiropractor visits, applications of valor essential oil and ice. It’s terrible and I try to ensure that never happens by making sure I am sleeping on the best pillow I can. I love the Proper Pillow because it does exactly what I need, it aligns my spine perfectly so it stays in alignment and my neck and back don’t hurt in the morning.

If you suffer from spinal pain then I would definitely try the Proper Pillow. If you don’t have any history of back problems then I recommend trying the Proper Pillow now before you do! The Proper Pillow maintains the normal 20-40° cervical curve and is perfect for side or back sleepers. It also has a cooling layer which I love!

  1. The proper pillow looks awesome. I have several old back injuries and can totally relate to the sleeping wrong causing a whole bunch of issues.I will definitely have to check it out- do you know where they’re available to purchase?

  2. I bet that smells amazing. I love the smell of lavender and I definitely want to try this.

  3. I’ve never seen a pillow like this…looks very interesting. I am kind of a pillow snob and have trouble sleeping in hotels if I can’t figure out the pillow situation. Silly, I know. I have a lavender neck pillow I use when I am really stressed…love this idea of a pillow spray!

  4. I so agree with having a proper pillow, the one I have currently is not the best and since I am moving soon I am thinking of getting a proper one. I hear a lot that lavender helps people fall asleep quickly. I am yet to try it myself

  5. This may be a silly question but why do you add salt? Thanks! I am going to try a pillow mist. I love Valor and it’s my favorite of all of them and I do have neck issues! I could really use a good pillow that keeps my cervical vertebrae aligned! I am going to check this out. Thanks!

    1. Not a silly question at all! The salt is necessary because oil does not mix with water. The oil would just float at the top of the bottle if there wasn’t salt added.

      1. I was wondering the same thing – this is the only recipe I have seen with salt so i was curious, but you are so right! makes so much sense!

  6. Ahhhh love this!! I’m all about lavender!! Nothing more relaxing than laying around to the scent of lavender after a long day!!!

  7. Thanks so much for the DIY! I will definitely give this a try since I love anything with lavender scent, even my car scent is lavender. It really helps to relax the mind. I really agree with you with the pillow, my neck and body aches when I used a bad pillow.

  8. Great idea and recipe. i have issues with chronic pain that keeps awake which then stresses me. I’ve used lavender on lightbulbs. This will be my next project

    1. I’m sorry to hear about your chronic pain issues! I imagine the lack of sleep due to chronic pain would be stressful. I hope this pillow mist can help you catch some zzz’s!
