I have a love affair with essential oils. My cabinet is packed full of various oils. Tea tree oil, orange, and peppermint are my go to group of essential oils. When I found out that DoTerra carries specialty blends, I was immediately intrigued. The ones that had me hooked were called Serenity and Elevation.
There are so many household uses for essential oils. Using them in a diffuser, adding them to lotions/soaps and using them in household cleaning supplies are just a few ideas. I was really wanting to try my hand at a DIY linen spray once I found out that the one I had been using had some crazy icky ingredients. Making your own linen spray is super easy and takes just a minute to make. Seriously.
Fine Mist Spray Bottle
Vodka/water blend or Soju **** Vodka/Water blend is 50/50. Distilled water only.****
Vanilla Extract (optional)
The recipe I made was was 1 cup soju, 30 drops of essential oil and roughly 1 tsp of vanilla extract. You want to use a clear, odorless spirit because it dries nearly instantaneously when it hits the fabric. I added vanilla extract because both the Serenity and Elevation essential oils blends contain a good portion of lavender…. which I can’t handle without vanilla being added to it. It’s a personal thing. You could very easily use just the spirits and essential oil for a clear linen spray. I’m thinking about making another one with mint and orange.
Give the bottle a good shake before spraying. A little goes a long way! Don’t forget to keep this away from kids, don’t ingest and don’t use around open flames… Just in case!
Serenity is is calming and relaxing and supports restful sleep. I sprayed my homemade linen spray with Serenity on my sheets and the scent is so mild and soothing. Elevation is mood-elevating and energizing. This one is my favorite. Maybe its the tangerine thats in there. I’m a sucker for citrus essential oils. I think this blend would be a perfect pick me up during the extra dark and dreary winter days spent cooped up inside.
