Confession: I love (seemingly) little luxuries. An uninterrupted piece of chocolate, a walk in the crisp autumn weather, fresh flowers in the house; these things can feel like a wonderful gift. One of these things in my life is a lavender linen spray. I love spritzing it on pillows and blankets and breathing in that calming smell. It’s a nice part of my day, so I thought I’d share! Lavender is probably one of the most popular oils, so a lot of people have heard of it. Lavender is known to be a soothing and calming scent; aiding in sleep. It’s perfect to spritz on pillows before going to bed.
Here’s how you can make your own linen spray!
A 4oz spray bottle (not plastic; I like to use these bottles)
1 oz Witch Hazel (I used this one)
3 oz of water (you can use tap)
10-15 drops of YL lavender essential oil
Note: I’ve only worked with Young Living’s Oils, so I’m not knowledgeable about making this spray with another brand.
Pour the witch hazel and water into the spray bottle
Add lavender drops
Put top on the bottle and shake
Optional: decorate bottle however you’d like!
The wonderful thing about this DIY is that once you have these materials, they will go a LONG way, and it only takes a few minutes to make. I like mixing them up for friends as a little pick me up! It’s a nice way to say, “I was thinking of you,” and add a little luxury to their life.
