Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel will bind to the essential oils, and is how the oils will get dispersed into the air and onto the pillow or sheets.    You know the oil saying “oil and water don’t mix”?  That is true for essential oils!  I have used water in a pinch, but Witch Hazel is a better choice.

Since your facial skin touches the pillow that you’re going to be spraying with this, you want to make sure you’re using something that won’t cause sensitivities or breakouts.

 Witch Hazel is very safe and is actually a great tonic for skin, especially the face, so it’s perfectly fine to use as a spray that will be going on your pillow. 

Make sure you use an all natural, pure, unscented Witch Hazel.
