Homemade Linen Spray
Help your hostess beautify her home with this delicious-smelling linen spray (for a fraction of the cost). Use a bottle that has a fine mist to ensure proper dispersion of the spray.
First, find a fragrance that you like by experimenting with essential oils. Popular choices are jasmine, neroli, sandalwood, lavender and rose.
Once you've found a good combo, add the oil to 1 part witch hazel or alcohol (you can even use Vodka) to 5 parts distilled or spring water.
Tie a sprig of lavender around the bottle or put some of the leafs in the bottle.
