DIY Lavender Linen Spray

Being cooped up behind closed doors in winter can mean things like couches, curtains and linens start to smell a bit stale and musty.   When things could do with a bit of freshening, try this simple DIY spray – with lavender oil, it has a lovely calming scent and helps freshen with a long lasting aroma.  So much better than chemical scents!

Note: this spray is also lovely to use while ironing.

You’ll need:

  • 120mL isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol (sold at pharmacies)
  • 40 drops, or 2-4 capfuls of Bosisto’s Lavender Oil
  • 2 cups distilled water (sold at supermarkets)
  • A small funnel
  • A spray bottle


  1. In a small bowl, mix the isopropyl alcohol and lavender oil.
  2. Add the distilled water (note: it’s important to only use distilled water, a type of purified water that has no minerals).
  3. Use a small funnel to pour the solution into a spray bottle.  Shake well!
  4. Use in linen closets, on mattresses, in cupboards and anywhere that could do with some freshening.
