Each week, I listen to The Simple Sophisticate Podcast. If you haven’t yet heard of it, I highly recommend checking it out! At the end of each episode, Shannon shares a “Petit Plaisir,” which is always very fun. A few weeks ago, Shannon shared her favorite way to aid in relaxation each night by using a linen spray. She shared a recipe in the show notes so I had to give it a try! I tweaked the recipe so instead of just making one bottle worth at a time, I made a jar of the solution so I can add it to water to make many bottles! Here is what I came up with.
1/4 c. vodka (witch hazel can be substituted for the vodka if preferred)
1 tsp. lavender essential oil
1 T. lemon zest
Mix the three ingredients. Fill a spray bottle 3/4 of the way with water and the remaining 1/4 of the solution. I love to spray a washcloth and throw it in the dryer with sheets and towels while they dry, or spray on my pillow case.
