Make Your Own Peppermint Pillow Spray

How to make your own relaxing peppermint pillow spray

The fresh clean smell of peppermint is perfect as a pillow spray. Known for its stress busting properties, its ability to help clarity of mind and of course relaxation.

Just what could be better for misting your pillow with in the evening?

You can either make the peppermint pillow mist purely peppermint or blend it with additional essential oils.

I prefer the pure scent but it’s also divine blended with nutmeg oil or eucalyptus which is one I tend to use if I’m coming down with a cold or feeling a little congested.

I love the smell of peppermint misted pillows it definitely helps me to relax and sleep well.

Just the fresh, relaxing feeling of walking into a well aired bedroom at night, with a breeze drifting in through the windows which I’ve left ajar and the smell of peppermint is perfect.

Peppermint essential oil is a good oil to have in at home. Not only is it great for our pillow spray but you can also use it for soothing sore muscles, soothing sickness, reduce itchy bug bites and to ease headaches.

What You Need To Make Peppermint Pillow Spray

  • small pump action spray bottle – (one that holds around 200-250ml) You can re-purpose one, well washed out and rinsed or you can pick them up quite cheaply in shops.
  • water – I use water which I’ve boiled and then cooled.
  • peppermint essential oil – plus other essential oils to blend if you wish

How To Make Peppermint Pillow Spray

  • fill the bottle with cold water almost to the top.
  • add just 4 drops of your peppermint oil and a further 2 drops of nutmeg or eucalyptus if you’re using them too.
  • fasten the lid securely and shake well.
  • Shake before each use also.

  • Shake well to mix the oils into the water.
  • Lightly mist your pillow – spritz the whole pillow holding the bottle around 50cm away so a fine mist falls onto the fabric. I usually do this around an hour before I’m planning on going to bed. Honestly, it’ll make your bedroom smell just gorgeous.
  • You might also like to use this as a natural room spray too – it’s particularly good used in bathrooms.

Take care if using the spray on expensive fabric or upholstery and always do a tiny test patch out of sight first – I’m happy to use these homemade sprays in my home and they’ve caused no damage but if you’re worried about stains or marks then exercise caution.

Where To Buy Essential Oils

Essential oils are really wildly available now and you can buy the popular ones at most chemist shops even the little local chemists or order online from places like Amazon, Superdrug or Neal’s Yard.
