Yes, in general, pillow mists, including lavender pillow mists, are safe to use. Keep in mind that it’s called a pillow mist for a reason — it’s best to only spray it on your pillow or sheets or in the air and never directly on your face or near your eyes.
Other things you’ll want to watch out for in your sleep pillow mist are harmful chemicals — always make sure your pillow mist is using natural ingredients and doesn’t have any nasty chemicals hidden in it. If there are chemicals in it, then if you’re spraying it on your pillow, those chemicals could get on your face when you lie down and that’s not a good thing.
If you’re having trouble going to sleep at night, there’s also other things you can try besides a good sleep mist. Here are some things we recommend:
This one seemed like a pretty obvious question to us, but no judgement, when we use new products, we like to get the lay of land before we hop in, too.
A pillow mist, also called a sleep mist, should be used right before you’re ready to hit the hay. You should always follow the instructions on the pillow mist’s packaging you’re using, but most will tell you to spray down your pillow right before bed, and some will even tell you to spray your pajamas before you put them on for an added calming effect.
Here’s another fun fact about pillow mists, particularly lavender pillow mists like this Asutra Pure Soothing Comfort Aromatherapy Mist — not only will it calm you down and help aid in getting you to sleep, but it’ll also ease anxiety at nighttime and help with migraines.
