This natural pillow mist is so delightfully mellow and helps relax the mind and makes a great pillow spray before bed time!
Sweet Dreams Pillow Mist Recipe:
2-ounce amber glass spray bottle
1 tbsp vegetable glycerin
1 oz. witch hazel
1 oz distilled water

10 drops cedarwood essential oil (Himalayan Cedarwood or Atlas Cedarwood) Texas or Virginia cedarwood is not the same and will smell much different with different effects

Directions & Tips for Use:
Pour the glycerin in your glass bottle then add the essential oils. Take a thin stir stick like a wooden coffee stir stick or something similar and stir the oils into the glycerin. This helps disperse the oils better later. Let this mix sit for a few minutes.
Pour the witch hazel into the bottle, close the lid on the bottle tightly, then shake, shake shake!
Next, add the distilled water, replace the lid again and shake! Don't overfill the bottle. If it is getting too close to the top, leave some of the water out. Only fill water up to the point it doesn't spill once adding the cap.
To use, simply shake and spray! Don't spray on a human, animal or anything like that, as these oils are very concentrated and could cause a reaction. Remember to give the bottle a quick shake before each use to disperse the oils.
Notes & Tips:
Witch hazel helps the oil and water combine and helps the aroma stick around a bit longer. You can also opt to use vodka instead of the witch hazel and glycerin. It's really good at dispersing the oils due to its emulsifying properties. It also acts as a preservative, so your room spray will last longer. I don't usually prefer this just because I don't much like spritzing alcohol into the air, but it's a pretty good option if you don't mind it!
