Aromatherapy Bed Linen Spray Recipe

Aromatherapy Linen Spray

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. clean spray bottle with a fine mist setting (do not use a bottle that previously contained cleaning products or hair products such as hair spray).
  • 30-40 drops of your favorite calming/relaxing or sensual essential oil or essential oil blend. Several blends are listed below. Keep the safety data of the chosen essential oil(s) in mind.
  • 3 fl. ounces of distilled water (or hydrosol)
  • Solubilizer such as Polysorbate 20 or Solubol. (For the solubilizer that you choose, follow the usage guidelines provided by your vendor or the manufacturer.)

Essential Oil Blends

Calming and Relaxing Blend #1

  • 10 drops Lavender
  • 10 drops Clary Sage
  • 10 drops Mandarin
  • Solubilizer such as Polysorbate 20 or Solubol. (For the solubilizer that you choose, follow the usage guidelines provided by your vendor or the manufacturer.)

Calming and Relaxing Blend #2

  • 15 drops Lavender
  • 15 drops Roman Chamomile
    (Avoid German Chamomile due to its weaker calming properties and its deep blue color that can discolor your linens)
  • Solubilizer such as Polysorbate 20 or Solubol. (For the solubilizer that you choose, follow the usage guidelines provided by your vendor or the manufacturer.)

Calming and Relaxing Blend #3

  • 15 drops Mandarin
  • 20 drops Roman Chamomile
    (Avoid German Chamomile due to its weaker calming properties and its deep blue color that can discolor your linens)
  • Solubilizer such as Polysorbate 20 or Solubol. (For the solubilizer that you choose, follow the usage guidelines provided by your vendor or the manufacturer.)

Sensual Blend

  • 15 drops Sandalwood
  • 15 drops Sweet Orange
  • 2 drops Rose
  • 2 drops Jasmine
  • Solubilizer such as Polysorbate 20 or Solubol. (For the solubilizer that you choose, follow the usage guidelines provided by your vendor or the manufacturer.)

Be sure to learn about and pay attention to all safety data for the essential oils that you use.

Directions

  • Fill the spray bottle with 3 fl. ounces of distilled water or hydrosol).(Even though a 4 oz. bottle is suggested, leave about 1 fl. oz. unfilled so you can shake the bottle well between uses.)
  • Select one blend and combine the essential oils with the solubilizer following the usage instructions provided by the vendor/manufacturer. Then, add to the bottle that contains the water and/or hydrosol. Essential oils can very in strength. You may want to try 20 drops at first especially if you live in a household with someone who is sensitive to strong aromas. After you first make and try the spray, let it sit for about a day before making a conclusion that the aroma is too weak; the aroma can change after the air freshener has had time to sit and the essential oils have had a chance to "marry."
  • Shake the bottle prior to each use.
  • Mist your sheets lightly. Be especially careful not to allow the mist to fall onto skin, children, pets, furniture or into open beverages. Be careful also to only use lightly colored essential oils otherwise your linen spray could stain your bed linens.
