There is no better feeling than slipping into a freshly made bed. That experience is heightened when you use essential oil-infused water to sweetly scent your linen bedding. Humans are sensual creatures and scents have the ability to transport us to another time and place, or to enhance our moods. Why not capitalize on one of your key senses by making your own linen spray?
Linen sprays can be used on bedding, throw pillows, other textiles. Scent options are virtually unlimited, meaning you can choose lavender for relaxation and a soothing night's sleep, rosemary to increase mental acuity, or rose for a soothing and romantic ambiance. The following recipe is from One Good Thing, by Jillie.
Directions: 1. Mix the essential oil and vodka in spray bottle 2. Add the distilled water until almost full 3. Screw on the cap and shake gently to mix 4. Shake gently before each use
The alcohol isn't required, just shake the bottle vigorously to completely mix the oil and water. Now your mission is to restrain yourself from spraying linen water on everything in your house! You may want to make a few different versions for the living room and each bedroom. Your family members can choose their favorite scents for their linen bedding.
It makes a perfect housewarming gift for family and friends. Enjoy the benefits of your homemade spray.
