Placing a few drops of essential oils, lavender specifically, on a cotton ball, and putting it inside your pillows not only makes them smell good, but you’ll also be sure to have a good night’s sleep as lavender helps you relax and calm down.

You can also try this with other essential oils, so long as you don’t put too much since some scents from essential oils can be really overpowering. Just a few drops can go a long way!
