This lavender frankincense pillow mist recipe will have you drifting off to sleep in no time!
I’m not a ‘good sleeper’ (unlike my husband who is a sleeping machine!). I discovered a while ago that the combination of lavender and frankincense essential oils helps me settle down and get to sleep so I used to diffuse them almost every night. Unfortunately, my diffuser broke recently (womp-womp) and all the outlets in our room are full right now, anyway so we can play soothing background music to help block out ambient noise for LG.
That’s why I decided to make and share this delicious lavender frankincense pillow mist recipe! It is so incredibly easy that even I had time to make it as a new mom. 😉

Ingredients for lavender frankincense pillow mist
- 15 drops lavender essential oil
- 5 drops frankincense essential oil
- If you don’t have frankincense, chamomile is a nice, soothing oil to use, instead.
- You can cut the oil concentration in half for a more dilute mixture, if you’d prefer. I don’t apply this directly to my skin, but if you do, you might want to lower the concentration if you use it every day.
- 1 tablespoon unscented witch hazel
- Distilled or freshly boiled & cooled water
- 2 oz amber or cobalt blue glass spritz bottle (the colored glass helps protect the essential oils from degradation.)
- A dopper or pipette, optional
- To keep your spray fresh and safe, I also recommend using a naturally-derived, broad spectrum preservative like Cosgard.
Alright, are you ready for the easiest tutorial ever?
How to make lavender & frankincense pillow mist
Carefully pour one tablespoon of witch hazel into your spritz bottle.
Add the essential oils. This can be done using a pipette or dropper, if you find that easier.
Fill with distilled or freshly boiled & then cooled water.
Spritz your pillow before bedtime and enjoy as the soothing scents help you drift to sleep. Shake gently to combine before use.
I don’t have any label paper so I used a couple of pieces of wash tape and a marker to make a cute little label! I also have some permanent India ink spray in similar bottles (from this project here) so I don’t want to mix them up.
And there you have it! A sweet smelling, super easy lavender frankincense pillow mist recipe to help you drift off to dreamland in delicious style. Like all that alliteration?
