The beauty of natural DIY linen spray lies in its ability to transform not only the atmosphere of a room but also your mood and well-being. The soothing scents of lavender, frankincense and bergamot can create a serene environment, promoting relaxation and calmness.
Alternatively, uplifting fragrances like lemon or peppermint can invigorate your senses and rejuvenate your space.
Beyond the enchanting aromas, natural DIY linen spray offers additional benefits. It helps eliminate unpleasant odors, whether from cooking, pets, or stale air, leaving behind a fresh, inviting scent. Linen spray can also assist in reducing wrinkles in upholstery, revitalizing fabrics, and even repelling certain insects naturally.
While you can find commercial linen sprays on the market, they often contain synthetic fragrances and potentially concerning chemicals that may not align with your desire for a natural and eco-friendly lifestyle. That's why creating your own natural DIY linen spray allows you to have full control over the ingredients, ensuring a safe, sustainable, and personalized experience.
Here is a list of our top 5 essential oils to use in your natural DIY linen spray:
Coriander Seed Oil (Coridandrum sativum):
Coriander essential oil is steam distilled from the seeds of the common herb, coriander, also known as cilantro. It has a slightly sweet, herby aroma, and the molecules found in this essential oil are very similar to what we find in lavender. That means it has been shown to be very effective in soothing our emotions and creating a relaxing and stress-free environment.
Bergamot Essential Oil (Citrus Bergamia):
Cold pressed (squeezed) from the peel of the bergamot citrus fruit. Its aroma is not as fresh and sweet smelling as sweet orange, but it rather gives off a more herby and floral scent. Also, its chemical composition is quite different from other citrus oils, and rather than being energizing it triggers a deep sense of stillness, and quiet in our mind and body. It’s a perfect choice when you want to create a calm peaceful mood in your bedroom.
Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula angustifolia):
Lavender essential oil is steam distilled from the lavender flowers of the lavender bush-like herb. Its healing benefits are many, but one its most powerful aroma therapeutic actions is to soothe away nervous stress and tension, calming both the body and mind. Its deeply calming properties can quickly transform a stressful situation into something soothing and peaceful. Plus, it offers protective, cleansing and clearing properties.
Orange Essential Oil (Citrus sinensis):
Expressed (squeezed) from the peel of the orange fruit. It’s fresh, sweet and fruity aroma is instantly uplifting and can encourage us to feel more positive. This is a great aroma to reach for when we are feeling frustrated, angry and upset. Its light, fresh, uplifting scent can instantly shift our mood and make us feel soothed and loved. It also has some powerful cleansing properties that can dispel odors and refresh the room.
Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia serrata):
This particular species of frankincense essential oil is steam distilled from the resin of the frankincense tree that grows in India. It has a distinctly different aromatic profile from the frankincense we are more familiar with from East Africa and Oman, but offers very similar benefits. The aroma encourages introspection and stillness, and can clear away unpleasant aromas while keeping the environments purified and feeling peaceful.
