Last year, when I was working as a flight attendant, one of my favourite things about our hotel in Brussels, was that they put little tiny bottles of lavender spray by the bed for your sheets and pillow. I don’t know why it took me this long to copy the idea, but I finally did!
I’ve had a bit of a life long love affair with air fresheners (when Febreeze releases new limited edition scents, I get a little crazy). Lavender has always been my favourite scent for almost anything – and so, when I spotted a vendor selling essential oils at the farmer’s market this weekend, I bought the lavender one right away. I made this room spray, but also some scented soy wax candles that I’m probably a little too excited about.
What you’ll need:
- Lavender essential oil (or any other scent you like!)
- Distilled water
- A bottle with a spray nozzle
- Sticky labels
- A marker
Simple as anything, just fill your spray bottle with distilled water and add in 8-10 drops essential oil per cup of water. Shake well and let sit for an hour or so before using. Shake before each use.
There are a lot of great recipes online for room sprays. Some of them suggest mixing Chamomile oil with lavender to make the scent even more relaxing. Other favourites of mine include; eucalyptus, cedar wood, tea tree, rose and sage oils.
