• DIY - LINEN SPRAY

 

 

        DIY Linen Spray with Lavender, Orange and Ylang Ylang                     
Linen Spray 

Spraying down linens and freshly ironed clothing is a good way to freshen a room and your mood. While diffusing is a very effective way to incorporate aromatherapy into your life, we have found that our friends and family enjoy this recipe as a simple and accessible way to venture into aromatherapy.

You can use one of our Synergistic Blends or blend your own!  Use roughly 2 parts water, 1 part vodka, and about 40 drops (max) of essential oils in an 8 oz spray bottle. We always say that essential oils are a lot like salt and pepper, use to one’s personal taste - you can always add more, but removing is a little more difficult.

With each new season, we like to change things up and this summer we’re enjoying a mixture of Orange, Ylang Ylang, and Lavender. This combo is beautiful, bright, and soft at the same time.

15-20 drops Orange: A favorite essential oil used over the centuries for its ability to boost your mood while reducing anxiety. A bright and fragrant top note, Orange is a great choice for freshening linens between washings.

7-10 drops Ylang Ylang: This intoxicating floral scent used for generations as a perfume will also help fight fatigue and get you motivated. It also helps calm while bringing you to a meditative state.

5-10 drops Lavender: Beautiful, versatile Lavender. Known for its calming properties and its ability to help lessen stress and anxiety, it also helps promote sleep and mental well-being.

Leave us a comment and let us know what essential oils you are using this season! 

 

Warning - always do a spot check for possible staining on any garments or linens when using directly on fabrics.
