DIY Lavender Linen Spray

One reason I love Young Living Essential Oils so much:  They are so versatile!  Once you start getting comfortable with oils, you will want to use them for EVERYTHING!  It feels great to get rid of my store bought products and make my own.  It can be really fun too!  The best part though is with DIY products – you KNOW what is going in them!  I know with Young Living’s “Seed to Seal” process, I am using 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils.  I trust using them on myself and my whole family.

Check out my DIY Lavender Linen Spray – 

DIY Lavender spray

First, I add 15-20 drops of Lavender essential oil to a 4 oz. glass bottle purchased from Abundant Health.  For this particular spray, you do not need a glass bottle, because Lavender is not a citrus oil.  Citrus oils are known to breakdown plastics.  I prefer to use glass for most of my DIY items, but that is completely up to you.

This recipe can be tweaked to “make it your own.”  It is important to add a pinch of Epsom Salt, because it helps to disperse the oil into the water.  Since oil repels water, if you don’t add the Epsom Salt, it will just stay clumped together in one place.

After the Lavender essential oil and Epsom Salt, just fill the rest with distilled or purified water, shake well and spray!   It really is as simple as that!  I spray the mixture over my sheets and pillow right before bedtime.

Why Lavender?

Lavender essential oil will freshen your linens, promote relaxation and restful sleep!  Lavender is a very gentle oil and can be used on the whole family.

Since Lavender is so versatile, it is included in the Everyday Oils Collection of the Premium Starter Kit.  It is an important one to have on hand at all times!  Its uses are endless.  Click on Premium Starter Kit to learn more.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.  I would love to hear from you and have you join me on this oil journey!

Thank you,

  1. Hi Amy, how long a bottle of spray can be last for? I saw some people using vodka instead of Epsom salt, what is the difference? I thought vodka is for preserving the liquid, can Epsom salt do the same?


    1. Hello Lulu,
      It all depends on how often and how much you spray. If I use it daily with 2-3 sprays, it can last between 2-4 weeks in the 4 oz. bottle. This is just my guess.
      I do not have experience using vodka. I know some people use it to clean their diffusers, but that is the extent of my knowledge. I use Epsom salt to help the essential oils disperse in the water.
      I hope this was somewhat helpful! Thank you for commenting and for your questions!
