Lavender Linen Spray | DIY | Lavender oil

At the end of summer, the days are still long and the weather is still lovely, but we need to get back in our school year routines. Whether you are trying to re-set the kids sleep schedules or get yourself back on a well-rested track, try making this lovely lavender linen spray. You won’t believe how it can retrain our brains for a better bedtime.

Opas Soap has provided us with their blend of essential lavender oil along with lavender shampoo for our review.  Opas Soap makes all their personal care goods in Los Angeles, California, making our DIY linen spray handmade AND American made.   

DIY Lavender Linen Spray

To make your own DIY lavender linen spray you will need:

Surprising vodka facts: Smirnoff moved from Moscow to the US and has been making vodka here ever since the Russian Revolution. For drinking, we’ve developed a taste for vodkas from several American microdistilleries, but that’s another post.  Vodka is not necessary for this project, but is beneficial in preventing water spotting. It makes the spray quick drying and emulsifies the oil and water to be mixed evenly. This means you don’t have to shake it before spraying.  If you don’t use vodka, shake well before spraying.

For me, lavender linen spray is a bedtime luxury.  Anything to encourage a peaceful night’s sleep is fantastic, in my book.  Rest assured, the lavender essential oil from Opas has no added chemical preservatives and is extracted by a handcrafted copper still.  This tool allows Opas Soap to remain free of dependence on suppliers and enables them to provide us with pure, sustainable products.

The Ojai Lavender Shampoo is cleansing and doesn’t leave my hair with residue like other natural shampoos.  It makes volumizing my hair much easier. The scent seems strong when you are washing your hair but once you rinse and style it you aren’t left smelling like an herbal remedy.  In short, the scent doesn’t compete with your perfume and linger. But it does leave a faint hint of lavender that you will love to catch throughout the day.  My hair and scalp were well balanced and the light-weight formula made adding volume to my hairstyles simple.  All of Opas Soap’s hair care line is made from scratch. They contain no toxins, artificial ingredients or sodium laurel sulfate.

Opas Soap ships their products in recycled cardboard and reuses packing supplies from shipments they receive.

  5. Scott Caya says:

    I always shop at TARGET and bought their “Up and Up” brand because for example their hygene products were “MADE IN USA”. Well the other day I bought cotton swabs and looked on the back and couldn't believe it that it said “MADE IN china” on back. So I compared it to the old one I had yet and that was still “MADE IN USA”. So today I will be returning my cotton swab purchase and probable start shopping at WAL-MART from now on.

    If not vodka, can you use rubbing alcohol? Is that not as “green” or safe, or doe snto have the same water-spot-aoiding benefit?

  8. Brenda Haines says:

    Thank you for the recipe, I never thought of making my own!

    Very easy recipe. I have some lavender oil here at home although not from the place you mentioned. I will check them out. It wouldnt have occurred to me to use vodka for fast drying. I would imagine any clear alcohol would work, and it makes sense. I do happen to have that brand of vodka here though, and I have to say although I dont drink much its the only braand I buy.

  10. Marisela Carrillo says:

    I love DIY posts and this is definitely a useful natural way to spruce up the aromas in my linens. Thank you !

  11. I would like to check out this site! I wonder if using regular alcohol would work, as I don’t have vodka. I want to try this!
