How To Make a Natural Sleep Spray

I'm not asleep... but that doesn't mean I'm awake.

In the following sleep spray recipe I am going to recommend witch hazel.  Witch hazel is a natural astringent that is derived from the witch hazel tree and  often used on the face and skin.  With it's natural, astringent properties, it is effective and beneficial as a body spray.

You can choose to use vodka as well, but my preference is the witch hazel

Natural Sleep Spray for Staying Healthy


  • Small Spray Bottle
  • 1 C Distilled Water
  • 1 1/2 T Witch Hazel
  • 12 Drops Various Essential Oils or fragrance oils

if you don't have witch hazel, you can substitute an  equal amount of vodka.


  1. Put the water and the witch hazel into the spray bottle and shake.  The witch hazel will help the essential oils to disperse evenly and not settle at the bottom.
  2. Add your choice of Essential Oils or fragrance oils and shake gently.  
  3. Shake before each use and enjoy your natural sleep spray!
  • Lavender-calming, works as an anti depressant, fights headaches
  • Clary Sage-Relieves stress, helps balance hormones, fights insomnia
  • Bergamot-Helps to relieve anxiety & balance emotions
  • Roman Chamomile-Calms your stomach & nerves-especially effective in children
  • Frankincense-Promotes calmness, relaxation & deep breathing for staying healthy.

Any of the essential oils will create a splendid sleep spray to help you at nights! Try some of these together to see what you like best!  I always lean toward a clary sage and roman chamomile blend for a restful night!

According to the National Sleep Foundation, the average adult gets less than seven hours of sleep per night.  Now, that may sound like enough to some of you, but the fact is, a tip in staying healthy is to get enough sleep! 

This natural sleep remedy is not only a natural remedy for insomnia, but also uses pure essential oils for additional health benefits.

Now, I'm not a doctor and neither is my husband. Or, as a matter of fact, no one in my family is. I'm simply a mom who's done hours of research and experimentation with healthy sleep remedies on my family.

I really do hope that some of these natural remedies  work for you as well, but if not, I'm sorry. If you have any hesitation, please visit your family physician with any concerns.
