Six months ago I decided to purchase L’Occitane Relaxing Pillow Mist as a tool that would help me sleep better. See, I have semi-insomnia problem (I’m writing semi-insomnia because it is not literal, medical confirmed diagnose). Between messy lifestyle (long nights out, junk food and similar) and crazy drug addict neighbor my sleep patterns have become irregular. I used to wake up million times at night. And with time I decided to try natural remedies for better sleep. Now, I’m not big fan of home scents. Not in a candle, spray, diffuser or any other form. But, I needed something relaxing (and all my life I hear how lavender is most relaxing) and decided to buy this L’Occitane mist.
With 24USD (19.80EUR) in price for 100ml (3.4fl.oz.) it was an investment purchase for home fragrance, but anything for serenity, right? One of the claims is that this mist creates calming atmosphere that promotes well-being. That is exactly what it does. With essential oils of lavender, mandarin and sweet orange it will make you feel like you entered safe and clean space, where you can rest and have sweet dreams. It may not help you with your insomnia (at least not the one caused by crazy neighbors), but it will give you a feeling of tranquility, like you’re standing in a field of lavender.
On the negative side, I have to mention gigantic warning signs on back of the bottle. I’m sure they do it for legal reasons and high safety standards EU has, but warning that this is extremely flammable, that could cause serious eye irritation and that is „harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects“ kind of freak me out. Again, I’m sure that is for legal reasons. And that nobody in their right state of mind would toss this in the river. However, this is a good feature so people use their heads before they toss something in the garbage. This only makes me want to recycle even more and put a product in adequate bin.
Would I repurchase it? Maybe. In ten years after I use up this bottle. All jokes aside, when it comes to home fragrances, this one is on the top of my list. L’Occitane Relaxing Pillow Mist smells divine and it’s 100% natural. I would definitively recommend it to anyone who wants to create relaxing environment in home or an office.
Until next time,
