Homemade Linen Spray

Attention Daughter and Sisterkins.....Do Not Read this post!!!!!

 I found this recipe on line after doing a lot of research on how to make linen spray.  The ingredients were easy enough to get, in fact you can order them through the site that I got the recipe from.  Find it here!
I was able to buy some heavy duty sprayers, and I downloaded a cool label from The Graphics Fairy.  I was able to put Linen Spray. the scent and ingredients on the label with my print program.   I grabbed my trusty scale and started to mix my ingredients.


Sprinkle on sheets or other other linens to freshen. Spray on linens before ironing.
1 teaspoon (100 drops) lavender essential oil
24 oz. distilled water

Pour essential oils and alcohol into a bottle, cap and shake to emulsion. Mix with distilled water. Mix will cloud, and eventually separate.
Shake well before each use. 

I added polysorbate 20 to my mix.  You don't need it using the formulators alcohol, but it is added assurance that my water and oil will not separate.  I didn't want them to have to shake really well before spraying.  I added the same amount of polysorbate 20 as the essential oils

Measure the oil, polysorbate 20, and formulators alcohol. Shake it up to mix well.

Add water.

Pour into spray containers

Label from The Graphics Fairy.  See link above.

 Now I can hardly wait til Christmas to see if my daughter and sisters like the spray.
Have a Great Day!
