I found this recipe on line after doing a lot of research on how to make linen spray. The ingredients were easy enough to get, in fact you can order them through the site that I got the recipe from. Find it here!
I was able to buy some heavy duty sprayers, and I downloaded a cool label from The Graphics Fairy. I put Linen Spray, the scent and ingredients on the label with my print program. I grabbed my trusty scale and started to mix my ingredients.
LINEN SPRAY RECIPE
1 teaspoon (100 drops) lavender essential oil
5-10 drops peppermint, spearmint or rosemary essential oil (optional)
2 oz. formulator's alcohol
24 oz. distilled water
Pour essential oils and alcohol into a bottle, cap and shake to emulsion. Mix with distilled water. Mix will cloud, and eventually separate.
Shake well before each use.
I added polysorbate 20 to my mix. You don't need it using the formulators alcohol, but it is added insurance that my water and oil will not separate. I added the same amount of polysorbate 20 as the essential oils
|Measure the oil, polysorbate 20, and formulators alcohol. Shake it up to mix well.|
|Add water. It takes on a milky appearance!|
|Pour into spray containers|
|Label from The Graphics Fairy. See link above.|
Now I can hardly wait til Christmas to see if my sisters like the spray.
