Blend the essential oils together then add the emulsifier. Stir well then add to the Linen/room spray. Shake well. Spray around the room as needed. If you want to spray a little on the pillow, only spray on one side. Let it dry then place the sprayed side down, away from the side the face will touch. This allows the essential oils to not touch the skin which could cause irritation but lets them surround you while you sleep.
