How to Make Linen Spray With Fragrance Oils

Linen sprays have long been used for freshening and revitalizing homes, especially on cotton sheets and bedding. One of the most popular essential oils used in linen sprays is lavender, known for its uplifting and pleasant aroma. Linen sprays purchased through retail stores can be costly and contain harmful chemicals, yet there is a simple and inexpensive recipe for creating your own linen spray using essential oils, to give a clean, natural and long-lasting fragrance.

Step 1

Thoroughly wash out your plastic spray bottle before mixing the ingredients.

Step 2

Measure out and add 1/4 cup of vodka to your spray bottle. You may want to use a funnel to aid you in adding both the vodka and the distilled water, to avoid any spills.

Step 3

Carefully add 1 tsp of your lavender essential oil, or whatever oil(s) you choose to use. If you find it easier use an eyedropper and measure approximately 100 drops.

Step 4

Fill the rest of your spray bottle with distilled water and shake thoroughly until it is well mixed.
