I just adore the scent of Lavender, I find it really relaxing, calming and soothing. Making up a bottle of Lavender linen spray is something I love to do, I spritz it lightly onto sheets or pillowcases before I store them in the airing cupboard. So not only does my airing cupboard smell divine, when I make up fresh beds they smell just gorgeous too.
If I’m feeling stressed or over-tired, I might give the sheets and pillows a little spritz with the linen spray around half an hour before I go to bed.

I’m quite happy to spray linen spray, on my bedding and around my home, some of the moisture droplets does fall onto soft furnishings and furniture, this doesn’t bother me but if you have expensive items you might want to be careful and spray the linen spray away from precious items.
