How to Make Your Own Lavender Linen Spray
Lavender essential oil is considered a “safe” oil and can be used in a diffuser and topically. Spraying lavender on your pillow is one way to breathe the oil in while you sleep, and you can also absorb it while your head rests on your pillow. Use lavender spray to spray it onto your clothing or linens when taking them out of the dryer.

Using Essential Oils
It’s important to note, before jumping into essential oils, do some research. Essential oils can be extremely beneficial and all-natural. However, use with caution, some oils can harm your skin or cause allergies. It’s important to be informed on essential oils before use. Luckily, lavender essential oils are not likely to cause harm.
Make sure to use high grade, 100% essential oil. Do not use oils that would be used for fragrances or for cooking and also be sure that your essential oils have to additives. Please do some research to figure out which oil is right for you.
I use Simply Earth’s essential oils, they are high grade oils offered at reasonable prices. Essential oils should only be used in glass containers, as high grade oils will leech into plastic and break it down. So, in this recipe, you will need to use a glass spray bottle. You can find those online for pretty cheap.
What You’ll Need For This Recipe
- One 2oz or 4oz glass spray bottle
- 20 drops of lavender essential oil (I use Simply Earth Essential Oils)
- 1 Tablespoon of alcohol (either rubbing alcohol or unflavored vodka)
- Distilled water
- A funnel
Making Your Lavender Linen Spray
Making your own lavender linen spray is pretty easy, simply use your funnel and place it in your glass bottle. Add the tablespoon of alcohol first.
Carefully drop in your 10-20 drops of essential oils into the spray bottle. Screw the top onto the bottle and shake the alcohol and the lavender essential oil. The alcohol serves as the “carrier oil” for the spray. If you added the essential oils directly into the water, the oil and water would not mix.
Once your alcohol and essential oils have mixed, fill the bottle with distilled water until the bottle is full.
Using Your Lavender Linen Spray
Lavender linen spray is wonderful to have on hand for adding a soft, floral scent to your bedding, and laundry. I use it in the laundry to spray my clothes as soon as they come out of the dryer.
This spray is also useful to help relax and relieve stress. Lavender is a known stress reliever, spraying it on your pillow at night can help with sleep.
Make this linen spray as a gift and give it away as a favor or small gift perfect for stocking stuffers!
