Sweet Rose and Lavender Mist: a homemade linen spray.
A friend of mine recently returned from a trip to Santa Fe. While she was there she stayed at a hotel that had, “The best turn down service.”
Turn down service?
We travel about 5 times per year for volleyball tournaments, and we stay as a team in decent hotel chains. None of which offer a “turn down service”.
She described to me the lit fire, laid out robes, soft music, a microfiber cloth laid out by their sunglasses, charging cords wrapped with ribbon…
All I could think was I wanted turn down service at my house every night!
Which is why I now have a Sweet Rose and Lavender Mist linen spray on my bedside table.
No one will be turning down my bed for me at night, but I can give myself the simple gift of a luxurious aromatherapy spray.
It’s the little things, am I right?
While contemplating the perfect deluxe linen spray, I landed on a rose and lavender scent.
The scent from the rose hydrosol promotes well-being and peace, while the scent from the lavender essential oil promotes calm and relaxation. It’s a perfect combination for encouraging an optimal night’s sleep.
Sweet Rose and Lavender Mist
Combine all ingredients in a glass spray bottle.
To Use: Shake vigorously before misting your linens before bed.
I used a 4 ounce glass spray bottle for this recipe. However, it would be perfect for dividing into two 2 ounce spray bottles. Use one for yourself, give the other as a gift!
While this is an excellent mist to spray on your pillow before bed, you can also use it on your clothes before ironing or on your clothes. Or, spray on clothes before putting them into storage for the winter. It will repel moths.
This formulation should not stain any fabrics. However, it’s always a good idea to test it in a small area before liberally applying.
Happy homemade turn down service everyone!
