Stuffy Nose Pillow Spray

by jessica on April 16, 2015

I have not been able to breathe out my nose since Monday. It’s been a long week. Today I couldn’t even get out of bed until 2pm and by 4pm I was exhausted. This cold is getting worse instead of better!


I’m in a cold meds coma. Does anyone else have a stronger reaction to Nyquil than they do to vodka? If only it made me feel better rather than just putting me into a fog. I am barely functioning. The fact that I showered and went to Juicy Veggie is shocking.

The silver lining to this cold is that I created an amazing pillow spray. My first thought was to put this on the Sisters Apothecary page immediately. Then I decided that instead I would post it here. If you have a stuffy nose whether allergies or a cold, make this and spray it everywhere. I keep spraying it on my bed, my couch, my blankets, and my pjs. It’s like using vicks vapor rub without the goop!


Stuffy Nose Pillow Spray:

  • 4 ounces of distilled water
  • 12 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops of lemon essential oil

I think the lavender and lemon make the spray a little more soothing. If you prefer a different scent, go for it. I think bergamot could be nice instead of lemon.

And now it’s time for more meds and a nap!

Last Monday I wore sandals. Today I wore snow boots. Not cool, Mother Nature. Not cool at all. I’ll forgive you if it really is 60 degrees on Wednesday and you hurry up and bring summer! Days like today need bacon. While I’m trying very hard to be healthy and eat lots of green things, […]

Quick note – This post is sponsored by Almond Breeze Almondmilk. Thanks Almond Breeze! Lately I have been on an almond milk chai latte kick. I love that the coffee shop by my office has almond milk because it just makes everything so creamy but doesn’t kill my diet. Side note – ugh. swim suit season […]

Here are some tasty things I have been enjoying lately that you might enjoy too… I bought this creamer at Whole Foods on a whim. I'm usually an organic half & half coffee drinker, but this caught my eye. It is so good. I wish I had some with me on this trip because it […]
