8 hours of Sleep??

by Andrea Butje on February 28, 2012

Essential oils for sleepWe all have those nights when sleep escapes us. Fortunately, there are some amazing essential oils for sleep that can help you get your eight hours.

Try this blend to assure a good night sleep. In addition to using essential oils for sleep, here are a few tips to help you drift off to dreamland. If you know other people who would enjoy this recipe, feel free to share it. (A well-rested world is a happy world, right?) If you have success, I would love to know!

Check out this new linen spray for sleep I’ve been making:

Sleepytime Linen Spray
2 oz (60 ml) of German Chamomile hydrosol
15 drops of Roman Chamomile essential oil (Chamaemelum nobile)
3 drops of Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)

Spray your sheets and under your pillow . . . and off you go to an aromatic world of dreams!

I recommend making this product fresh every few weeks, as it does not have a preservative in it.

Is there a substitute for the hydrosol?


Andrea Butje May 4, 2017 at 2:54 pm

Hi Bonnie!
Hydrosols are healing, aromatic waters that are the result of the essential oil distillation process. So they still have a lot of healing powers, but they’re gentler. It contains the water soluble parts of the plant being distilled. If you prefer you could use filtered or distilled water in place of the hydrosol.

Aromatics International has a lovely selection of hydrosols:

Thanks, Andrea. I have many oils, but only one hyddrosol.

Andrea, would keeping this blend in the refrigerator prolong the shelf life?

Karyn, if you prefer to keep in the refrigerator you could. I like to convenience of having it at my bedside table. I use it every night and it’s gone before I know it!

Your chamomile linen spray is perfect for a cabin bed.

Where would I buy coconut sugar or roman chamomile hydrosol?


Andrea Butje August 10, 2015 at 1:20 pm

Hi Hannah – you should be able to find coconut sugar at a local grocery or health food store. You can purchase Roman Chamonile hydrosol from Florihana – http://www.florihana.com/en/hydrolats/roman-chamomile-organic.html#.VcjdKBNViko
