DIY All-Natural Deep Sleep Pillow Spray

Why would you need a deep sleep pillow spray?

With all that’s going on in the world right now, stress is at an all-time high for many of us. The result? Trouble sleeping at night, which can leave you feeling rundown and actually increase your likelihood of getting sick.

Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do to help promote a good night’s sleep. One of them is to use my easy DIY All-Natural Deep Sleep Pillow Spray.

Ready in just 5 minutes, it will help you fall into a naturally deep sleep and wake feeling restored and ready to take on the day! So, let’s take a look at how it works.

First, this deep sleep pillow spray features lavender, which has been shown to help improve sleep quality.

One study revealed that when postpartum mothers used lavender aromatherapy during the postpartum period, it improved their sleep.

In the study, lavender essential oil was applied to cotton balls that were placed in containers. The mothers inhaled the lavender oil scent 10 times and kept the container by their bedside until morning and experienced improved sleep compared to a control group.

Meanwhile, other studies have shown that lavender essential oil can help improve sleep for many groups of individuals, including people who are in the ICU and older adults with dementia. [1234]

Additionally, the cedarwood oil in this recipe has been shown in several human and animal studies to promote relaxation and restorative sleep, specifically when combined with lavender oil. [5]

Finally, the peppermint oil in this DIY All-Natural Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is known to help boost air quality, which supports your ability to breathe easily during the night.

Studies have also found that inhaling peppermint oil can help relieve many bacterial, fungal, and viral infections. [67] And if you’ve ever tried to sleep while sick and stuffy, you know what a challenge that can be.

Personally, I recommend using this deep sleep pillow spray if you struggle with insomnia, seasonal allergies, or while fighting off a cold or any form of rhinitis.

Now, let’s get to the recipe. You’re just five minutes away from some of the best sleep you’ve had in ages!
