Pillow Spray DIY

Ingredients Pillow Spray

For your pillow spray you’ll need:

  • Glass spray bottle (no plastic when working with essential oils!)
  • Distilled water
  • Vodka (disperses the oil and acts as preservative)
  • Essential oils of your choice (we’ve used lavender, rosemary, orange and lemon grass)
  • Labels (download our free labels here)
  • Funnel
  • Measuring cup


Pillow spray ingredient: distilled water

How to make your personal pillow spray:

The base – In an approximately 4:1 proportion, mix distilled water and vodka. For a 100 ml bottle, we are mixing 70 ml of water and 20 ml of vodka to leave some room for the oils.

The oils – For a soothing lavender pillow spray, pour in 10 drops of lavender oil and 5 drops of orange oil into the base mixture. Add a few dried lavender blossoms for even more natural intensity.
