Sweet Dreams Pillow Spray!

After a long day, imagine laying your head down on a fluffy pillow lightly scented with your favorite essential oil. Spray pillows, sheets, towels, washcloths, stuffed animals, and bedspreads. You may also choose to use it as a room or bathroom freshener. I spray the guest towels in the bathroom and it lightly scents the whole room!

Sleepy Time!

And, depending upon the oil you choose, this may help you get a good night’s sleep! Consider Peace & Calming, Lavender, Stress Away, or Sandalwood for a peaceful rest!

Lilyana SleepingNot only are these wonderful for your own use (keep one in every bed and bathroom in the house!), they make wonderful gifts for family and friends – and excellent hostess gifts!

Tie a little raffia around the neck of the bottle, or attach a dried flower with a thin silk lavender ribbon, and there you have it – instant “homemade gift.”
