DIY Aromatherapy Neck Pillow

Now that summer is in full swing, I itch to go on vacation and escape my daily stressors. However, with a husband in PA school (he graduates in August!!!) it’s hard to find time to get away. Because of this dilemma, I have to find ways to relax and “get away” in the comfort of my own home. One of my favorite every day “zen moments” includes soaking in a warm bubble bath while listening to soft music and placing my Aromatherapy Pillow around my neck. Simple moments like these melt the stress away and motivate me to be a better wife and mother. Best of all, this Aromatherapy Neck Pillow is super simple to make! Follow these five simple steps to create an Aromatherapy Neck Pillow of your very own.

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Dawn. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

4. Warm neck pillow up by placing in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. Place on neck and/or shoulders for instant relief.


5. Cleanup time!

I LOVE simple DIY projects, such as this Aromatherapy Neck Pillow. However, I don’t love the mess that DIY projects often leave behind. Thankfully Dawn Escapes’ incredible grease-fighting formula and heavenly scent make cleanup time that much more relaxing and enjoyable.


The second I opened my Dawn Escapes bottle, I instantly fell in love with Dawn Escape’s New Zealand Springs scent. I started by wiping off the counter top and table; before I knew it, I was cleaning my stove, sink, microwave, etc. I can’t get enough of this heavenly scent. Not only did it get rid of nasty stains that had been sitting on my stove for ages, but this incredible grease-fighting formula made my kitchen shine like never before.

Dawn’s New Zealand Springs’ lingering aroma rejuvenates my senses and provides a stress-free cleaning experience. Who knows, maybe my next “getaway” will include escaping to the kitchen sink as I do the dishes with Dawn Ultra Escapes.

I've always used Dawn, nothing beats it. I had no idea there were so many different variations. I need to find the lavender one!
