Like the “In the Garden” recipe above. If you’ve tried a number of things to fall asleep without success – then you won’t want to miss these easy essential oil recipes for DIY sleep sprays.

Diffusing essential oils is so easy. What essential oils are good for diffusers? Truly, I haven’t found any I didn’t like in our diffusers.
