Hi,
I love spraying linen spary on my sheets at night.  Problem is the store bought stuff is so pricey.  Any ideas on how I can make my own?  I have essential oils, but I know spraying then directly on my sheets is not such a good idea since oil will stain.
Thanks!  Smiley

hi!  i just put a few drops of lavender oil into a spray bottle filled with water.  you need very little oil to make it smell good.  then you can spray it anywhere and it wont stain!

Do any of you add vodka to your linen spray?

Water + oil doesn't mix, so you should shake up the bottle every time you spray.  Or add something like polysorbate 20 to get the two to mix together.  Also, if you don't use it up too quickly, you might want to consider adding a preservative.  All sorts of nasty things can grow in water and you don't want to be spraying them on your bed.

If you use vodka does the essentail oil hide the vodka smell...I would not want my room to smeel like a bar-any more than it already may  Tongue
Where does one get polysorbate 20?  What is it exactly?  A liquid?

I am having a problem trying to figure out how to make the scent last.  I have tried it with water, with vodka, with witch hazel and with a mixture of water and vodka.  I am using about 30 drops of EO per 1 ounce of liquid. 
Does anyone have any suggestions or discovered a way to make the scent last longer than just a couple of minutes??
 Huh
Thanks,
Christy

You can get around the oil/water not mixing problem by buying water based fragrances. I bought some from wholesale supplies plus a while ago, but am not seeing them on their website right now. That's too bad, I loved them, and they worked perfectly in linen spray.
