Essential Oil Linen Spray

This linen spray is from L’Occitane. Aromachologie Relaxing Pillow Mist as described by the company, “This pillow mist combines the soothing properties of 100% natural essential oils (lavender, tea tree and geranium) with softening lime blossom extract, to calm tensions and soothe nerves. Its aromatic fragrance helps ease away stress and anxiety and promotes a peaceful, repairing sleep.” Retails for $14 for 3.4 fl oz

This makes me dream of a lovely spring garden filled with lime blossom and geraniums in bloom. But it is pricey for such a small bottle. Or you can always make your own! I like linen spray since the scent is very light and it’s also made with pure essential oils. Most perfumes will give me an instant head ache. So here’s my version of an uplifting scent, a walk in the orange groves of southern California.

Citrus Linen Water – Best to spray on linens right before ironing. It will leave a light clean fragrance.

1/2 teaspoon (50 drops) lemon/orange essential oil  ***to your liking***
1 oz. 80+ proof vodka
12 oz. distilled water

Pour essential oils, vodka, and distilled water into the spray bottle and shake to mix.

Be sure to shake well before each use.

Note, you can always subsitute the essential oils of your choice. I personally enjoy peppermint and citrus scents. And lavender usually makes me feel tired and is too much for me.
