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.
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!
