- Glass Spray Bottle
- 1/4 Cup Witch Hazel
- 2 Cups Distilled Water
- 3/4 Cup Dried Lavender
- 20-30 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 20 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Step 1: Brew The Lavender and Strain Into Spray Bottle
Boil 2 cups of distilled water over 3/4 cups of dried lavender and let steep for 20 minutes. Strain the mixture into spray bottle using funnel. It is important that you use distilled water for this because the minerals in other drinking water can cause your spray to expire faster.
Step 2: Add Withhazel
Add 1/4 cup Witch Hazel to the spray bottle. Vodka can be used instead if you do not like the scent of Witch Hazel but I prefer Witch Hazel because it is a great more-affordable option compared to vodka. This step in the process is important because it helps the water and essential oils to mix properly and also helps to naturally preserve the mixture.
Step 3: Add Essential Oils
Add 20-30 drops of lavender and 20 drops of peppermint. I added more lavender than I did peppermint because peppermint is a strong scent and can overpower the lavender if too much is added.
Step 4: Add Nozzle, Shake, And Voilà!
Leave enough room in the bottle when adding in the mixture so that it does not spill over when you add in the nozzle. I like to use this mist on linens and as a cooling body spray. Shake before each use and enjoy!
