DIY Linen Spray

I came across this post on Design Sponge and knew I wanted to make the DIY linen spray because buying Febreeze can add up, plus I don't really like the scent. This tutorial is for a lavender scent but I used a lemony-orange essential oil I had that my Dad's girlfriend gave me (she makes soaps and hooked me up!). It was super easy to make and I had most the stuff laying around the house, I just had to buy witch hazel (under $2 at Target) and distilled water and these will last for many, many more batches.

All you need:

  • 8–10 drops lavender (or whatever scent you like) essential oil
  • 2 tsp witch hazel
  • 1 cup distilled water 
  • small spray bottle

Not much needed to make it!

Getting the essential oils with a dropper, I used 8 drops.

Re-used this plastic container for mixing everything together

Done! Here's where to find templates for the label I used

I just used it around the house and it smells fantastic! Not too strong but just enough to refresh the fabrics and linens.

Bedroom Sneak Peek

Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately, I've been sick pretty much since Saturday and not doing much besides laying in bed, drinking tea, and trying to get some cleaning done since they've finished painting my apartment. I finally took a sick day from work yesterday hoping some rest would help.

I've re-done my room (still in progress) and am so excited about how it's coming together! Here's some sneak peeks filtered through Instagram and Pixlr-o-matic. Once the room is done I'll take some photos with my real camera and share them here.
