As a mom, it’s tough to find time for myself.
I often discover ways to steal moments in the day to relax and keep myself centered.
With two boys, I’ve got to be at my best at all times and keep my cool!
Make Your Own Frugal Aromatherapy Pillow with Lavender Oil
To keep that Zen feeling, you can make your own frugal aromatherapy pillow using lavender oil.
It’s incredibly inexpensive and an easy way to build in some reset time for yourself.
To make the neck/shoulder pillow, you will need:
- To make your personal pillow, fill a tube sock with dry rice so that is about two-thirds to three-quarters full. Be sure to fill it over a container or the sink so you don’t get rice on the floor.
- Add 15-20 drops of lavender oil
- Carefully sew the sock shut to avoid finding rice all over your house for the next six months. Make sure the stitches are close together; you’d be surprised at how easily that rice escapes.
- Microwave for 1-2 minute (make sure the sock and contents are not too hot) and apply as needed to help relieve neck and shoulder tension.
