The last of our sexy Therapy Thursday recipes this Peppermint Lavender Linen Spray by Humblebee and Me will have your bed smelling divine.
Ingredients 0.7g | 20 drops peppermint essential oil 1.1g | 30 drops lavender essential oil 5g | 0.18oz Polysorbate 20 or Polysorbate 80
35g | 1.23oz distilled water 0.2g | 0.007oz liquid germall plus
Method Weigh/count the essential oils and Polysorbate 20/80 into a small beaker or glass measuring cup, and whisk everything together to combine.
Add the water and preservative, and whisk again—the mixture should become slightly cloudy.
Decant into a 50mL (1.69 fl oz) mister bottle (the exact one I used was from New Directions, but they discontinued them a while ago). To use, mist over any linens or laundry you’d like to freshen up.
Because this spray contains water, you must include a broad-spectrum preservative to ward off microbial growth. This is non-optional. Even with a preservative this project is likely to eventually spoil as our kitchens are not sterile laboratories, so in the event you notice any change in colour, scent, or texture, chuck it out and make a fresh batch.
