Happy Spray

This is actually a recipe for yoga mat cleaner, but the original instructions said it could also be used as a room spray. We started using a spritz or two of “happy spray” in the air in Leo’s bedroom whenever he had trouble falling asleep, and now it’s part of his bedtime ritual. You’d usually opt for something less energizing than ginger at night, but the happy factor can’t be beat.

Yield: 4 oz. Total time: 10 minutes
