We are lucky to have a local farm nearby that grows organic lavender. They make a fantastic Lavender Stress Relief Mist. However, I teach a lot of classes and go through this stuff like water, so I started making my own. Thankfully, Keys Creek Lavender Farm also sells pure essential lavender oil, which I have been using for my personal mix. The kids and I have been talking about making our own spray.
So Mom and Dad, here is the recipe: in a spray bottle mix 1 cup of water with 10 or more drops of lavender oil. I use distilled water since it is more pure. You can use more or less essential oil depending how intense you’d like the scent to be. You may also experiment with mixing in a few drops of other essential oils. Recently, with all the colds going around I have been adding a few drops of eucalyptus oil.
Now mix away and enjoy a whiff of relaxation around your house — especially at bedtime!
