There is nothing more romantic or relaxing than slipping between sheets scented with lavender or other essential oil. I’ve purchased Lavender Linen Spray at fancy bedding stores in the past but it’s a very easy DIY spray to make yourself. Since I just ran out of the store bought version, I decided I would make my own DIY spray for a romantic Valentine’s Day with my husband.

Many people use vodka in their DIY spray but Marty and I do not use products with alcohol so I needed an alternative. What the alcohol in the recipe does is act as an emulsifier and help mix the essential oil and the water. Witch hazel can act as an emulsifier as well so that is what I use in this DIY spray.
- Lavender essential oil (or other romantic essential oil)
- Distilled water
- Witch Hazel
- Spray bottle
- Adjust the quantities used based on the size spray bottle you have. This works for my small spray bottle
- Add 6 tablespoons of distilled water to your bottle using a funnel.
- Add 2 tablespoons of Witch Hazel to the bottle using a funnel.
- Add about 10 drops of pure lavender essential oil.
- Screw on the top and shake carefully.
- You can get fancy and make a label for your Lavender Linen Spray if you want.
Before bed, just spray a bit of this DIY spray on your pillows, sheets or blankets. Test a small area before using if your linens are expensive. When you spray, stand back from the linens as the goal is to lightly scent the linens not to make them wet.
