Calming Bedtime Linen Spray to Help With Sleep | Real Food RN

I had been using a Lavender Bedtime Linen Spray for years, until one week when I received a bottle of “Sleep Soothing Mist” in my monthly Ecocentric Mom Box. This new sleep spray contained lavender (like mine), but it also had marjoram, cedarwood, and ylang ylang. I was intrigued!

I gave it a try and fell immediately in love with the heavenly scent. It also seemed to carry me off to dreamland much quicker. So, I decided it was time to give my bedtime linen spray a makeover with the addition of some more essential oils.

This upgrade to my original recipe brought it to a whole new level!

Before I share my recipe with you, I wanted to touch on just why the addition of these oils is so key to making an amazing bedtime linen spray to help with sleep!

  • Lavender: lavender essential is well known as a relaxing oil and it often times used in spa treatments and as an aid in relaxation and balancing
  • Cedarwood: cedarwood creates a calming environment and is used for it's balancing and relaxing effects
  • Marjoram: marjoram has a calming oil, it has a warming effect on both mind and body and soothes tense muscles after exercise. It is beneficial for occasional simple nervous tension and has a relaxing effect
  • Ylang Ylang: ylang ylang is a calming, relaxing and soothing fragrance that is often used for emotional balance

Note: I only use therapeutic grade essential oils. If you are putting them onto your skin you will want to make sure they are pure and will have the therapeutic benefits that you would expect! HERE is the only brand of oils that I use.
