I have used essential oils on and off over the last year or two…I love the idea of chemical free cleaners and natural smells in the home. My all purpose cleaner and a touch of lemon in the vacuum are little steps towards a more toxin free home.
My girls love their feet rubbed at night with a lavender oil mix or a roller ball (‘sweet dreams’) on their back…they call it their ‘sleepy oil’. It’s a lovely bed time ritual that suits all ages although always check that the oil combinations you use are suitable for young children as essential oils can be too strong for their gentle skin. I use the Tisserand brand that is sold at my local health food store and they do a range of different blend oils along side the pure oils themselves.
Alongside the cleaner we are using this linen spray in our bedrooms in the evening…
Lavender Linen Spray
In a small glass spray bottle (I got mine here) add a pinch of fine sea salt. Drop in 20 drops of the lavender essential oil and fill the bottle to the top with cooled boiled water or distilled water of you can get it…and that’s it.
Your beds will be smelling gorgeous and everyone will hopefully 😉 get a good nights sleep!!
For a bit of novelty I used our label maker from the gorgeous Rastall & Daughters to mark our bottles…for some other ideas check this out.
