How to Make Linen Spray: Homemade Recipe With Essential Oils

I’ve always seen linen sprays on store shelves and thought it was a waste of time and money until now.

There are two reasons you need this spray in your home:

#1 When you want to freshen up

Using a linen spray on your pillows, sheets, blankets, and curtains will help you go a little longer between washes. The essential oils we’re using in this recipe fight against germs and bacteria.

#2 When you want a good sleep

There’s a reason essential oils are used for aromatherapy. They can help reduce stress, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, and more. So when you spray your bedding before bed, you’ll probably sleep like a baby.
