2 teaspoons witch hazel
8 to 10 drops lavender essential oil
Linen spray is great for freshening your sheets and pillow cases between washings. The scent of lavender is also known for helping you fall asleep at night.
For this recipe you will need witch hazel. Witch hazel is very inexpensive and you can find it next to the rubbing alcohol in the pharmacy section of any drug store. The purpose of the witch hazel is to mix the lavender oil with the water.
