“I’m like… four days past my bedtime”
When it comes to activities that are deemed socially acceptable in terms of “Basic Betch” standards, an obligatory trip to the Lavender Farm during Summer has undoubtedly joined the ranks of such sought-after “basic” excursions like Apple Orchard visits during Autumn & Tulip Festivals in Spring. It has seriously become THE coveted Summer Instagram Photo-op of 2017, & I whole-heartedly applaud & fully support these efforts. I mean, my Instagram Feed has postively blown UP with the cutest Lavender Farm photos & I almost literally cannot even anymore. Also it’s super great to get out & enjoy nature & all that jazz too, or whatever…. NOW seeing as how I haven’t actually had the opportunity to get out there & explore one of these Lavender Farms myself, I thought I’d still try to hop on that good ol’ “Lavender Train” & share a simple Lavender DIY recipe with all of you today! Insert: Rose & Lavender Essential Oil Linen Sprays!
Rose & Lavender Scented Linens… YES PLEASE!
I’ve practically had terrible sleep habits since almost ALWAYS, so I’m constantly trying to discover new ways to create a bedroom space that helps foster healthy sleeping patterns. Reading before bed & eliminating stressful triggers by BANNING any & all television or work from the bedroom have been my “go-to’s” for the past few years – however I’ve recenlty become quite obsessed with Lavender & Rose Essential Oils. A. becuase the smell is just SUPER yummy & B. because I find that both of these oils have a really calming effect on both my mind & body.
Now to be completely honest here I don’t fully understand the logistics behind WHY lavender essential oils are supposed to encourage healthy sleep patterns & calm the mind & body, all I know is that the lavender scent triggers fond memories of being in a spa & that to me, is relaxing as AF! Pretty concrete theory if you ask me!
Anywho – the BOTTOM line here is that lavender is quite infamous for its ability to improve sleep patterns! SO if you’re a little like me & seem to be lacking in the whole “sleep department” OR you simply enjoy the glorious scent of the spa…. why not try the recipe below?!
Here’s What You’ll Need
- Spray Bottle

- 7 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil
- 7 Drops of Rose Essential Oil
