How to Make Lavender Linen Spray

cleaning 05.02.15
Lavender Linen Spray costs anywhere from $12 to $20 per bottle, but you can make it in your own kitchen for much less! Water, dried lavender buds, vodka (yes, vodka!) and lavender essential oil come together to make a wonderfully fragrant spray that's not too overwhelming. Use it when ironing clothes, spray it on your pillow to help you sleep, or even spray it on furniture. The recipe for this very easy-to-make lavender spray is on my blog.

    Dorothy D, I've heard some people use isopropyl alcohol or witch hazel. I've never tried making it with these so can't say how the results turn out. Hope this helps.

    I've been making this type of spray for 35+ years and one word of CAUTION to this recipe: IF you are going to use it on clothes when ironing, even on sheets, do a 'test' on light colors...esp on whites or linens, as the brown color from the steeped

    Seems to me this would stain, perhaps using Lavender Essential Oil would be a better choice.

    I have a HUGE Lavendar plant in my yard, just moved here in May. I've been wondering if I can use it to make my own "stuff." I'm thinking I should be able to dry my own buds? Got to explore this more... Also have Rosemary, don't have a clue. lol
