Aromatherapy Neck Pillow Tutorial #MyDawnSummer

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.

I’m so excited that it’s finally summer and Lucas is out of school! We have a long bucket list of fun summer activities we want to do together as a family this year. Not on my list? Cleaning! I’m sure that is not on your list either lol. However, it is a part of life so when I clean it’s nice when the experience can be as enjoyable as possible. That’s why it’s important to use products that really get the job done. We recently started using Dawn Destinations Dish Soap and it really works wonders on greasy kitchen messes (which are a lot in my kitchen!) plus it smells so good!


Dawn Destinations Scents:

  • Mediterranean Lavender
  • Thai Dragon Fruit
  • Fuji Cherry Blossom
  • Hawaiian Pineapple
  • New Zealand Springs
  • Caribbean Breeze

Another thing that I try to do is to find the joy in the everyday things. Yes –  even cleaning. So when I am cleaning or doing the dishes, I try to make it a relaxing moment – sort of a “me” moment. I turn on some good music, open the windows, use aromatherapy by lighting a yummy candle or using a neck pillow – anything to create an escape. Dawn Destinations really helps with that due to the aromatherapy the different scents offer. I use Dawn Escapes Mediterranean Lavender and it really smells lovely. Lavender is one of my favorite scents. I swear – it instantly relaxes me and even helps soothe an aching headache. Dawn Escapes Mediterranean Lavender offers a little escape every time you do the dishes! LOVE that!

Thanks to Dawn, I received all of the materials needed to create my very own aromatherapy neck pillow and making it was so simple! Here’s how:
