I started using my DIY lavender spray on linen first, as I wanted to copy that amazing feeling of sinking into fresh bed sheets every night. But then I realized I love the smell soo much I want to be surrounded by it 24/7! So I grabbed my lavender linen spray and mist it on all of the curtains in the house! It literally felt like heaven so I decided to take an extra step and made these lavender pouches to spread around the house, in the drawers and in the car. And most recently, I put together this amazing lavender sugar scrub!
I must admit, I’ve become a lavender addict and I get to use this DIY linen spray every day, with no exception! We had a lot of lavender this year and I hated to see it go to waste but I never thought I would fall so much in love with lavender! I made a big batch of this lavender mist and stored some in the fridge so I’ll be good for quite a while! If you’re a lavender fan too, you’ll want to make this DIY linen spray as soon as you finish reading this tutorial.
