My little 6 year old niece is such a fun loving precocious girl. She is seriously smart and can have a hard time turning her brain off at night. Her mom, my sister in law, was online not long ago and found a lavender scented linen spray. She ordered it to help my niece relax just before bedtime and found that it really helped. Unfortunately that company is no longer making the linen spray and she is quickly running out. That’s why I am here today to share with you a quick tutorial for Sweet Dreams Linen Spray.
Before I got started making the linen spray, I had my sister in law come over and bring the little container her linen spray was in. We wanted to make this homemade version smell as close to the original as possible. After a few minutes of smelling different scents, we finally decided on the combination of Lavender, Angelica, and Bergamot essential oils.
Sweet Dreams Linen Spray
To make this linen spray you will need just a few basic supplies you probably already have on hand. Just in case you don’t, I am going to share affiliate links so you can grab your supplies online.
- Glass Spray Bottle(I use glass so that the oils don’t seep into the plastic and possibly react, but that is mostly with citrus oils. I just keep these on hand!)
- 3 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
- 1/2 cup isopropyl alcohol
- 25 drops Lavender
- 10 drops Angelica
- 10 drops Bergamot
- 2 cups Water
How to make a homemade scented linen spray
Step 1: Take the glass spray bottle and remove the spray nozzle. Use a funnel or just carefully pour the water and alcohol into the bottle.
Step 2: Add in the vinegar, which cleans and refreshes.
Step 3: Finally, add in the Lavender, Angelica and Bergamot essential oil. Make sure to mix well before using.
I decided to add a cute little label so that it inspires her to go to sleep and dream away all of the days excitement and fun. I just grabbed my Silhouette machine and created a fun label on white sticker paper.
(*post edit* A lot of people have expressed interest in using this label so I made it a downloadable file. Please note this is for personal use only and not for commercial use. You can download the Sweet Dreams Linen Spray label here.)
This was so easy to make, and a fun little gift to be able to make for my niece. I can’t wait to hear about her sweet dreams and what she thinks about her new Sweet Dreams Linen Spray.
The oils do like to sit on top of the mixture, so just remember to shake before you spray. You will only use one or two sprays at bedtime, so this will last a really long time. I just spray it directly on top of my daughters comforter. It smells so good that I even made a second batch of Sweet Dreams Linen Spray for our family.
