Mmmm, lavender...

Lately, insomnia has been the name of the game at night for me. It's not fun, but is just plain frustrating. So as I was looking through the demo book for the new products that Avon is introducing, I noticed a lavender room & linen spray. Now, I've never really liked the scent of lavendar, but I thought, "Hm, lavender is supposed to be relaxing, so maybe it would help me sleep". With that thought in mind, I ordered a bottle.

The last couple of nights, I've been spraying some on my sheets & pillowcases, hoping it would help me sleep. Night before last, I just sprayed a little, and I still lay awake. Last night, however, I liberally sprayed the sheets & pillowcases then went to do some other things while it dried. Then I opened the window (the low was supposed to be in the mid-fifties), and crawled into my lovely scented cocoon.

I read for a bit, then finished my book. Being loath to get up to find a new book to read, I just lay there and thought happy thoughts. Took me about 20 minutes or so, but I went to sleep and had an AWESOME night!! I'm alert and in a good mood this morning, even though I didn't go to sleep until somewhere between 2am and 3am.

I'm going to resist taking a nap with my babies today and plan to go to bed around 10pm instead of 1am! Naturally, I plan to continue using the lavender, since it helped me so much last night. Hopefully it will continue to work.

It's not officially out yet, but if you'd like to order some of this faboo room spray, the link to my online Avon website is in the links bar to the right. It's called "Fresh Prints Lavender Room & Linen Spray". I think it'll be out either on the 13th or 27th of September.


  1. Valerian is also VERY good for insomnia. And it's also all natural. You can find it just about anywhere.

  2. Glad you found something to help you sleep. Sounds "dreamy"! LOL
    I have no problem actually sleeping, but mine is going to bed at a decent hour where I can get up with the chickens and be at work by 7am............ugh.
