DIY Lavender Infused Neck Pillow #DDDivas #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.”


This is our last week of school and then we all get to enjoy the summer! My girls have worked so hard this past year and are ready for their summer break!  But with school out that means we will b doing a lot more cooking, my girl love helping in the kitchen and during the summer we get to experiment more on foods which means we have more messes.

But I trust Dawn to help fight the grease and make clean up  a breeze. I was blown away by the Dawn Destinations. Obviously for the grease fighting but the smell. I received the  New Zealand Springs and absolutely loved the scent. What a relaxing smell.

We made some BBQ chicken and the sauce had caked onto my casserole dish. I let it sit in Dawn over night and in the morning after a little scrubbing the mess was cleaned up. Plus my kitchen smelled yummy!


Breathe deep. Seek out simple, everyday Zen moments to stay balanced and centered, such as escaping at the sink with the exotic scents of Dawn Destinations.

We also have a wonderful DIY project to make your own Lavender Infused Neck Pillow! All you need is a sock, Lavender Esssential oil, a sewing kit and dry rice.

Simply fill your sock with the dry rice until it’s 3/4 full. Then use about 20 drops of your Lavender oil onto the rice and sew the sock up.  We added some ribbon to make it a little girlie.

Warn it up in the microwave for a minute and then relax!
