Summer At Dusk | A Summer Sleepytime Spray

Monday, July 10, 2017

This blend smells of flowers blooming in the late summertime, a warm evening among the trees, and a summer sky fading into a deep blue after the sun goes down. The four oils in this blend are very calming and stress relieving- perfect for a nighttime spray.

Summer At Dusk Sleepytime Spray:
8 drops Orange
4 drops Cedarwood
2 drops Lavender
2 drops Ylang Ylang

(You can adjust the number of drops to your liking—more or less, stronger, or lighter—but it's important to keep the ratio the same to get the intended smell of the blend.)

When storing essential oils, always use a dark, glass jar so that the oils are protected from the light and aren't soaking in plastic chemicals. When making room sprays I use 2oz glass amber jars that are the perfect size! 

Firstly, I take a clean bottle and fill it with fresh, filtered water. Then I add either a pinch of epsom salt or a squirt of witch hazel. Adding epsom salt, witch hazel, or alcohol to your room spray keeps the oils dispersed through the water of the spray bottle instead of separating. This allows for an even scent to be sprayed every time it's used!

I then shake it up a little so the salt dissolves or the witch hazel gets mixed up. Lastly comes the fun part- the oils! I add my desired amount of drops, put the lid on, give it a little shake, and of course add a cute label!

I love using this spray at night when I am relaxing or am about to go to sleep. It's perfect for spritzing around the room or on my pillow!
