Sweet Dreams Sleep Spray – Holiday GIFT DIY

Gabrielle Armstrong // Savor Your Saturday


December 19  

As a mother dedicated to the health and happiness of my family, I discovered essential oils as a tool to support and care for them in a clean and delightfully health-conscious way. God gave us the gifts of his created nature to use in joy and wisdom. We, as mothers, are the gatekeepers, caretakers, and gift-givers in our homes. I have found essential oils to be such a positive way to support our daily lives and experience grace within our home. 

Need some sleep support for your children as you try to nestle them “all snug in their beds” or for yourself after a particularly stressful day? You can whip up this safe, clean, non-toxic spray to use on your linens, sleep spaces, and lovies in no time. These pure essential oils promote calming and relaxing properties that soothe a fussy child or a racing mind that is “filled with sugar plums dancing in . . . their heads.”

This also makes a great homemade gift!  


  • 4 oz. glass spray bottle
  • 15 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops of cedarwood essential oil
  • 5 drops orange essential oil
  • a splash of witch hazel

Put the oils and the witch hazel in the glass bottle, and fill the rest with water. Shake and spray away!
