Try these DIY Aromatherapy Sprays & Immediately Find Your Zen

Aromatherapy is alllllll the craze these days and for very good reason.  Studies have shown the link between smells and mood.  Give these DIY aromatherapy sprays a try to instantly boost your mood, help you sleep or relieve your stress.

I first got into essential oils and aromatherapy when I was dealing with life shattering migraines.  I had been to every doctor and neurologist in town and nothing seemed to break my pain.

That is until one day I went to Reiki therapy and she recommend peppermint oil.  On my first inhale my immense throbbing broke and my life has forever changed.

You now can find me within a couple steps of my peppermint essential oil at all times, for when pain arises.

Now, I am not a doctor but every since that faithful day I truly believe in the power of smells and aromatherapy and continue to use it in my every day, so I wanted to share some of my favorite combinations to make your days a little more pleasant.

For a base for these room, pillow, linen sprays you can use distilled water or even witch hazel.

Pour the base liquid of choice into a glass reusable bottle and add your oils as you wish.  I am working on making my own oils and buying them in bigger bottles as MUCH as possible.  I love essentials oils but just hate the tiny little jars because I go through them so fast!  I’ll work on some zero waste recipes for some common scents!

But in the meantime, try out this amazing combos!

Migraines: 
5 drops peppermint oil
5 drops lavender oil

4 drops chamomile
3 drops orange

Pillow Spray:

Linen Spray:

These are some of my go tos!  But the lovely thing about it is, you can do what ever you think is best.  Mix and match the scents to create the perfect combo for you.

Would love to hear from you guys!  Which are you’re favorite scents??
