Homemade Lavender Linen & Room Spray – Recipe

 

 

This might be shocking but I actually never even knew lavender could put you to sleep until I heard about it at Bath & Body Works! That’s so funny to me because they sell a pillow mist that smells  nothing like real lavender. Today I will be sharing a super simple Linen/Room Spray recipe that you can easily make at home and not worry about unwanted chemicals in the finished product. First I will go over some of the supplies I use since I have received some questions regarding bottles I put essential oils into.

 

Distilled Water
99% of the time I use distilled water when I use essential oils in the recipe. If you use regular tap water not only does it make the whole solution a cloudy mess, but tap water contains all types of junk you don’t want in your sprays.  If you don’t have distilled water on hand go ahead and boil some water and let it cool. I just buy distilled water since I can get 4L for under 2 bucks.

Dark Glass Bottles
It’s very important to always use dark glass bottles anytime your using essential oils.  Sunlight will degrade the essential oils and if you use plastic bottles the essential oil will literally break down and melt the bottle! Trust me I’ve learned the hard way.

 

Ingredients

  • 10 drops Lavender essential oil (I buy mine here)
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) witch hazel or vodka (I buy mine here)
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) distilled water
  • Small funnel
  • Small jar with tight-fitting lid
  • Dark glass spray bottle (I buy mine here)

Directions

  • In the jar, combine the witch hazel or vodka and the lavender essential.
  • Place the lid on tightly and shake well for 15-20 seconds to combine the two. Why? Well, the essential oil won’t distribute into the water on its own, but when diluted in the witch hazel or vodka, it will mix in.
  • Carefully use a funnel to transfer the mixture to a spray bottle.

    I really need to invest in lavender essential oil as i hv anxiety n trouble sleeping.. This is so simple wud love to try it ..Thanks fr sharing

    • Lavender is great for relaxation it works for my entire family. I have more luck combining lavender with another oil for relaxation I really love lavender and cedarwood together.

  • I have a love and hate relation with lavender… if it’s pure it makes me very nervous… srage, right? 😀
    I have a balm with lavender and chamomille from Avon but I was planning to buy a spray too… I think I’m going to diy!
    By the way, the dark bottle tip is smart… I didn’t know this fact!
    xoxo and have a relaxed weekend

    • Hmm I generally don’t believe any commercial products have pure lavender in them. Pure lavender can be quite pricey so I am very suspicious of beauty products that claim to have pure lavender.

      • Often things go in this way, That’s true! Other times I find products with a lavender quantity that’s just small but enough for my nerves to relax and don’t get over exposed to its scent… 😉 The good way is in the middle ^_^

    Always love your DYI recipes, hun! 🙂 This is absolutely fab and I love how simple it is to prepare. I always thought that dark bottles would in fact attract more sunlight, though? It’s the case with perfumes anyway, whilst transparent bottles are bad, light coloured bottles are the safest, I think. 🙂 <3

    • Essential oils oxidize in light that is why good quality oils are sold in dark amber bottles. Have a great weekend.

  • I love Lavender and although not much of a DIY person like I’ve mentioned, this is so easy to make. Thanks for sharing another great DIY recipe. x

  • Simera, that is super simple… I think I really need to start using the lavender to help me sleep … I always have a tough time falling asleep and then staying asleep… I could use other scents for Valentina too xox

  • Nice! I sometimes diffuse lavender and chamomile oil in my bedroom to help me relax and sleep better. It’s so simple and works well.

    • I have yet to get chamomile oil it’s next on my list for sure.

  • This is a wonderful DIY and I would love to try it myself. Gemma x

  • I have the one from BBW! I should totally make my own 🙂

  • Great tip! And it sounds so easy.

  • Making this spray is so easy, why should any one spend so much on branded sprays which is nothing like original.

    This is a very good tip, to use a dark glass container. I bought some “home spray”, that was said to be natural, but it’s a transparent plastic bottle… I will look for darker ones from now on! And homemade is then natural, not bought 🙂

  • Omg I had no idea why essential oils were kept in dark bottles haha I feel so dumb. Nor did I know that you can’t put them in plastic bottles. Thanks for schooling me girl! Which brand of essential oils do you prefer using?
