Homemade Linen spray

What's your favorite season?  Mine is definitely spring.  I used to think it was due to three main things:  the return of sunlight, the return of color (green grass, buds, etc), and the return of warmer weather.  However, I realized today that another item is the return of wonderful scents:  rain and freshly mowed grass are the two biggies.

Yes, yummy smells are one of my loves.  The smells of nature are wonderful but I also love a good candle, diffuser, or potpourri.  I once came upon a wonderful sale and purchased some aromatherapy pillow mist.  

These lovely indulgences are often times horribly expensive.  For example, at Crabtree and Evelyn, Lavender Linen Spray costs $18 for 10.1 fluid ounces!  You can make your own for so much less.  Here's how.

Homemade Linen Spray

Spray bottle (I picked one up at Dollar Tree)
1/4 cup unflavored vodka (vodka acts as a disinfectant)
3 cups distilled water
1 tsp of lavender essential oil (or whatever scent you select)*

Place all ingredients in your spray bottle.  Shake before use. 

I have never tried this but if you have a favorite scent from Bath and Body Works, you could probably substitute their "Home Fragrance Oil" for the essential oil.

Twenty-six fluid ounces of your own linen spray for around $1!  At this price, everyone should be be pampering themselves!
