Scented linens are one of life’s most luxurious simple pleasures. These fragrant recipes were originally published in my book, Welcome Home. Indulge and breathe summer in slowly.
SCENTED LAUNDRY SOAP: Add 1 teaspoon lavender essential oil and 1 teaspoon lemon verbena essential oil to a 64 oz. bottle of unscented laundry detergent. Shake well before each use.
LAVENDER LINEN SPRAY: Wonderful for sheets, jammies, linens, throw rugs and yoga mats. In a 4 oz. glass spray bottle, combine 20 drops lavender essential oil, 3 Tablespoons 100 proof vodka, and top off with distilled water. Shake well. Allow to rest for two weeks. Spray on desired linens.
DRYER SACHETS: Place 1/4 cup lavender flowers in a small muslin bag and tie securely. Add to your dryer along with wet laundry. this sachet will last for about 12 loads. Open sachet and refresh with 2 drops of essential oil as needed.
