Spring Linen Spritzers 

Linen Spritzer

As winter grudgingly grinds to a close and spring begins knocking at the door, welcome the new season
with your favorite springtime scent! These easy-to-make spritzers can be used to scent the air, to freshen up
sheets and curtains, and in many other ways!
 

Materials Needed:

  1. Alcohol: If you are making these sprays for personal use, you can simply use a pure grain alcohol (like vodka or everclear) for this recipe. If you are making these sprays to give away or sell, you will need to use a perfume grade alcohol or another similar denatured alcohol (denatured alcohols have been altered so they are no longer usable as a beverage—using a regular grain alcohol in any kind of craft that is given away or sold can be illegal unless you have a permit to distribute alcohol). For this recipe you will need 1 liquid oz. (2 tablespoons).  
  2. Distilled Water: For this recipe, you will need about 2 cups (16 oz.) of water.  
  3. Misting Spray Bottles: This recipe will make about 16 oz. of linen spray. You can divide that into four 4 oz. spray bottles, eight 2 oz. spray bottles, or sixteen 1 oz. spray bottles.  
  4. Essential oils: Pick your favorite spring-time oil or blend to use in these spritzers. Some oils that connote the light, airy scents found in spring include cardamom, citronella, coriander, eucalyptus, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, jasmine, lemon, lemongrass, palmarosa, peppermint, rose, spearmint, & ylang ylang. You will need about 12-18 drops of your desired essential oil or oil blend for this recipe.

Instructions:

  1. In a glass container large enough to hold at least 2 cups, mix 1 oz. (2 tablespoons) of alcohol with 12-18 drops of your desired essential oil or blend. Allow this mixture to sit for at least 15-30 minutes to allow time for the oils to dissolve into the alcohol.
  2. Add 2 cups of distilled water to the oil mixture and blend thoroughly.
  3. Transfer the mixture into your desired spray bottles. Normally, when essential oils are used by themselves or with water in a spray bottle, it is possible for the essential oils to clog the spraying mechanism. However, in this recipe, since the oils are dissolved into the alcohol, that is usually not a problem with most oils. 
  4. To use your spritzers, shake the bottle before use and spray 1-3 times into the air, or onto your sheets, curtains, blankets, or other linens and household items. Use more or less spray as desired. Be careful not to spray towards people, especially into the eyes as the alcohol can cause stinging.

Extra Ideas: 

  1. Create labels for your sprays to give them a unique personality.
  2. Create several different aromas and create a gift-basket with one of each "flavor".
