Make Your Own Linen Spray! (It's Easy, I promise!)

Lately I'm rather obsessed with making my own bath products, thanks to the lovely set of essential oils E gave me recently. (Such a thoughtful fellow!) I love linen sprays, but not paying ten dollars a bottle, so I thought I'd have a go at making my own. Turns out, it couldn't be simpler.

You will need:

Vodka to act as an emulsifier
Distilled Water
Essential Oils
A liquid Measure
A spray Bottle

I used Bergamont and Eucalyptus for mine since I love fresh, green scents. Just combine 1/4 cup of vodka with 3/4 cup of distilled water and a few drops of your desired scent and pour it all into your spray bottle.

Add a pretty label with a little ribbon and it's gift ready. Make sure to include instructions to shake before using. I've paired my homemade linen spray with Martha's Ginger Bath Soak and My DIY Sugar Scrub to make a little mini pampering kit. I'm planning on giving out a few of these to the teachers I've worked with this year. Heaven knows they could all use a little relaxation and pampering this summer!

What have you been making lately?

I was seriously going to go to Bath and Body works for some linen spray tomorrow! Thanks for giving me a better Sunday activity than just shopping!

I love the oils you used! I make mine with lavender but now I want to try the eucalyptus. Thanks so much for the great idea, I'll be linking.

This is great! I found you through One Pretty Thing. Can you just spray this on fabric like Fabreeze or do you have to iron?

Shelley-

I've just been using mine to freshen up my bedding and towels, just as you said, like Febreeze. I'm not sure it would work well for ironing because of the essential oils. (It might leave marks?) Let me know if you try it!

Thanks for all the kind words above. I'm so glad y'all liked this DIY.
