In this day and age, it can be so incredibly hard to wind down from a busy day. Most of us are on the go until the evening and we don’t leave much wind down time for ourselves. Aromatherapy is a great tool to use in bedtime prep. I’m sharing some ways that you can incorporate essential oils into your nighttime routine.

Spray Bed & Pillows with Lavender Mist Spray

One of my favorite scents is Lavender! I love prepping my bed by misting the Nature’s Truth® Lavender Mist Spray. I love this spray because you can use it for so much. On top of spraying on your bed, you can use it for a calming spray while you’re on the go, or even as a relaxing shower spray.

You can easily refill it with 2 oz. of water and 30 drops of Nature’s Truth Lavender Essential Oil.

DIY Good Nite™ Roll-On

This Good Nite roll-on has the perfect blend that enhances the calming, comforting, and relaxing feelings that come with bedtime meditation. You can keep it right next to your bedside for easy access. When you need a break during stressful traffic or work days, you can make one with Lavender to enhance your relaxation. Here are the easy steps to making your own roll on.


  • Roll-On Bottles–> I bought these.
  • Carrier Oil: Fractionated Coconut Oil, Grapeseed Oil, or Sweet Almond Oil.
  • Nature’s Truth Good Night Essential Oil or scent of your choice.


Step 1: Fill roll-on bottles with 1 tablespoon of carrier oil. I used fractionated coconut oil.

Step 2: Add 3 drops of essential oil into the bottle. This is approximately 1% of the combined mixture or 1 drop per tsp. of carrier oil.

Step 3: There is no step three! That’s it! Roll it on and sleep tight!

Lavender Soy Melts

Another favorite of mine is Lavender Soy Melts. You can keep a wax warmer on your nightstand and let one melt a couple times a week. These are very fragrant and will have your room smelling like a spa! Just like the roll-on, this is a really easy DIY.



Step 1: Melt 1 cup of soy flakes in glass measuring cup for approximately 3 minutes in the microwave.DIY Essential oil soy melts

Step 2: Add 15-20 drops of Nature’s Truth Lavender Essential Oil and stir.

Step 3: Fill silicone molds evenly. The molds I used are slightly large so I spread the mixture out and made 6 melts. If you have a smaller mold you can do 8 small melts.

Now just pop your melts into a wax warmer and your on your way to a better nights sleep.

I love using aromatherapy in my nightly routine because it is easy to incorporate and their are so many ways to use them. I choose Nature’s Truth because their essential oils are 100% Pure Plant Based (from flowers, leaves, and roots), Paraben Free, and Gluten Free. I picked mine up at my local Walgreens in the “Vitamins” section of the store.

    I’ve never used essential oils but love the idea of lavender scent by my bed!

    I love using essential oils before bed time. I typically diffuse lavender or use it as a roll-on. Definitely going to be giving these DIYs a try this weekend!

    I love lavender oil, it helps me with sleep, head and neck tension, stomach issues or motion sickness, is calming, supports skin health and more. Is Nature’s Truth and Nature’s Gift have the same brand owner?

    I love using lavender oil for any burns I get on my skin. It helps my skin heal faster and not leave as much of a scar.

    I’ve got a friend who is big into aromatherapy. She’s a nurse, and thank God, she still says that anything remotely serious should be seen to by a medical professional.
