Make this natural calming linen spray with just two ingredients. You’ll be drifting off to dreamland with this popular essential oil made for sleeping.
Being a mom of two busy boys AND a grandma, it’s safe to say that life can get CRAZY! A calming linen spray is just what I needed! Sleep is something that doesn’t come naturally to me and unfortunately, many people have sleep issues due to the rising use of electronics.
I knew that I needed something to help me and my family sleep naturally that didn’t require the use of lots of medications. American’s tend to take pills to help them sleep and pills to keep them awake – and we haven’t been immune to that. In an effort to bring more natural products into my home so that hopefully my kids can learn better ways, this DIY calming linen spray was the perfect solution!
I purchased a spray bottle from and removed the label so I could make it pretty. That’s a requirement in my household 🙂 I used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut a cute sticker but you can create some cute Avery labels too.
Distilled water and 6 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. Lavender is often considered a must-have oil to keep on hand at all times due to its versatile uses, including calming and relaxing properties that promote peaceful sleep and ease feelings of tension. Lavender is the most popular essential oil and the most versatile!
Shake before using each night to evenly distribute the oils in the distilled water and lightly spritz your pillows and bed sheets. (Caution – don’t use to much – you don’t want to get into a wet bed). Spritzing the pillows and sheets about 10 minutes before you lay down is perfect.
Relax with the peaceful scent of lavender and catch up on your favorite book and before long, you’ll naturally drift off to a sweet sleep. And that book? It’s a MUST READ for any women!! Rachel is the girl to tell ya like it is – the good, the bad and the ugly! You can get your own copy HERE. It’s quickly become a best-seller for a reason 🙂
This is a great item to use all the ways from toddlers to adults! This DIY calming linen spray also makes for great gift-giving!

I have never thought to make a spray for my sheets. I am all for making my bed as calming as possible since I suffer from insomnia a lot so I will have to give this a try! I know lavender can be great for sleep. Thanks for the idea!
I suffer from insomnia too and I definitely needed something to help in that area. I’d love to know how you like it if you try it!
I love simple, natural solutions like this! And your rule about making things pretty made me smile. I tend to be more of the practical sort so I don’t always take time for that. But when I do, it does always feel good and make me smile when I see the beauty!
Sometimes it’s just a small step towards making things pretty and it makes such a HUGE difference 🙂 Thank you for visiting!! I hope you stick around for awhile!
I suffer from insomnia so I will have to give this a try! I know lavender does wonders for people like myself
Such a fun and helpful DIY, making the most of bed time is never a bad idea

Lavender is my go to for calming my spirit! I love the smell in my sheets. I’m going to try and make my own. You have inspired me!
My friend made me one of these once, and it was so nice!
I cant believe how easy this is!!! Great stuff.
This would make a simple yet thoughtful gift for anyone. Pinning this!
I love how simple and easy this was to make. I need to make some for my room to replace the air freshners we use.

I love lavender linen spray! I have some I made using Young Living oils and love it so much!
It’s so simple! I really like the idea of making my own calming spray, will be spritzing my bed sheets soon! Thanks for sharing.
What a great idea! I will definitely have to give this a try!
Love this idea! I bet it smells better and is better for you than Febreze.
I have a peppermint spray that I use only linens and sheets sometimes but I’ve never made my own. I think it’s time!
I like to make things myself so this sounds like something I would make and use. DIY is always better.
This is a great idea. Sometimes I have such a difficult time falling asleep at night mostly because I have so much on my mind. This calming linen spray sounds like just the thing I need to wind down and relax before bed!
I would love to know what you think of it if you try it out!
This sounds like perfection. I might have to try this one. Thank you for sharing.
I make something similar but with witch hazel. It works awesome!!
Ohhhh…I’m going to have to try that one now!

It was a 12oz bottle.
