Making Your Own "It's Not Just A Linen Spray"

Photobucket

I'm already getting my Spring Clean on and one of my fave things to do is sort through my linen cupboard and give it a lovely sense of freshness about it as we move into the warmer months. One of the easiest ways of doing this is by making your own Linen Spray. It's super simple and not expensive to make your own.

What you'll need:

250ml atomiser spray bottle - look around your home to see if you've got anything you can re-use before you go out buying one.

15-20 drops of Essential Oils - lemon myrtle, lavender, rose-geranium are some of my faves for this.

Filtered Water - I choose to omit using alcohol as well (helps to blend water and the essential oils together) as giving it a shake before use works just fine.

Your Linen Spray is great for freshening sheets as you make the beds in the morning, add to a wash, spray before ironing, use as a room spray, or in the warmer months keep it in the fridge and spray on the face to refreshen.

As you can see, it's not just a Linen Spray. Love to hear any of your ideas on how you use yours xo

  1. My favourites are orange and cinnamon, we use it at Christmas time. It makes everything smell like gingerbread :D

  6. I love spraying it around the rooms too for a quick freshen up. It's just too gorgeous not to share with the rest of the house and just let the sheets have all the enjoyment.
