The June/August issue of Country Living magazine arrived in my mailbox and there was a snippet about making lavender linen spray. Since I had leftover dried lavender buds from making sachets, I thought I’d put my stock to good use. Lavender linen spray is very easy to make and is far cheaper than buying it in a store.
And no, the vodka isn’t for drinking. It’s part of the fragrant concoction.
Bring a cup of water to a simmer, then add 4 tablespoons of dried lavender buds. Remove from heat and let steep for 5 minutes. You can purchase lavender flower buds online for $12 a pound.
Place a coffee filter in a funnel and pour the lavender mixture through it into a large Mason jar. Once all the liquid drips through, remove the coffee filter and discard, along with the lavender buds.
French Lavender is one of my favorite scents and I’m anxious to use it! Would make a great gift, too.
