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.



  • 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.

    Lavender Linen spray would make for some very sleepy dogs. Thanks for the share! I might have to do a follow up post to one I did recently as this would be a perfect additional and safe tip!
  2. I love the scent of Lavender.  It is not only relaxing but also a nice soft romantic scent.  Great choice!  I haven't made linen spray before, I'll have to try this.
  3. Melinda Dunne says
    I love Lavender it is my favorite fragrance. I haven't thought of making my own linen spray before but now I will give it a try. I do have a question about essential oil. Do you have a specific brand you recommend? I don't know the difference between the varieties and quality.

      As long as they are therapeutic grade, I have found they are pretty much the same. Just don't get a fragrance oil as it isn't the same thing.

    I need this to help me fall asleep. This worked on my boys when they were babies
  5. I had never thought to use witch hazel. I have some in my closet. I bet I could do this with other oils for days when I have a stuffy nose too. 
  6. Lavender is such a wonderful scent. I never thought to make my own spray, but totally will now. Love this!
  7. Libby's Library says
    I love the substitution of Witch Hazel for the alcohol. I have everything I need to make this! Thanks for the great inspiration.
  8. I bet this smells wonderful! Just what my bathroom needs all the time, not just Valentine's Day. ;)
  9. ourfamilyworld says
    This is such a romantic idea. I have never considered making a Lavender spray. Off to try it.
  10. Laura “Lolli” Franklin says
    I use lavender EO a lot, but strangely enough I'm not really fond of the smell (neither is my husband). So I usually mix with other oils.
  11. I love this idea! I've purchased the pretty expensive linen sprays before so I'm all for trying it myself on the cheap! 
  12. Liza @ Views From the 'Ville says
    I used a lavender mask sometimes in college when I needed to sleep but had a headache or a lot on my mind.  I haven't tried a spray before, but yours sounds easy to make!  I might have to give this a try.
  13. Diane Nassy says
    I'm guessing that this smells amazing.  It looks so easy to make so I will definitely try it!
