This is a recipe for making Lavender Linen Spray from A Prairie Girl's Guide to Life by Jennifer Warick. I read it while I was up at the lake and this was one of the things that I wanted to try for myself. Under my sun room windows I have a little lavender garden planted and I've been meaning to harvest some of the lavender for drying at some point this week.
This is a really simple, and fresh scented spray to make. It's great for spritzing your linens with before bed (as lavender has calming and relaxing properties) or even for spritzing on your clothes before ironing to give them a little more freshness. It's also a pretty gift when packaged in a vintage apothecary bottle if you can find one with the mister. If not, create your own label to give the bottle a more pretty, vintage feel.
In the winter time, I add a little bit of eucalyptus oil - it adds a minty freshness and seems to clear your sinuses which is a bonus in the middle of cold season!

I found this wreath when I was looking for lavender photos online - it's from natural-burial.typepad.com. I just thought it was really pretty.
