The Friday Night Pillow Mist

Some of our DYIs are more practical: natural dish soap, shower spray, toilet deodorizer. This is not one of those DIYs. This is a luxurious DIY, because you deserve to lay your head down on a pillow that smells like a whimsical forest. So if you’re feeling yourself, whip up this super simple pillow and sheet mist. We used Lavender and Cedarwood because they’re both calm and cozy, while the Spruce adds an element of freshness. If you’re feeling generous, you can even share your mist and spray your guests’ sheets and pillows, taking hostess to a whole new level. Plus, the recipe calls for a tbsp of vodka—misting your pillows with a bit of a buzz on…sounds like great Friday night to us.

What you’ll need:
24 drops cedarwood essential oil
36 drops lavender essential oil
30 drops spruce essential oil
1 tbsp vodka
Filtered or distilled water
8 ounce spray bottle, preferably glass 

What to do:
1. Combine the vodka and essential oils in the spray bottle, and give it a good swirl to combine. Let sit for 15 minutes for scents to combine. Shake again.
2. Add water until almost full, leaving about ½ inch of space at the top.
3. Cap the bottle and shake again to combine.
4. To use, shake the bottle well before each use and liberally spray on fabrics as desired.
