Lavender water can be used many ways around the home

You can use it in the rinse cycle to give the sheets or clothing a light lavender scent, great for helping you sleep.

A body spray for a light scent instead of perfume

A natural bug repellent

A scented spritzer around the home for carpet, sheets, etc.  I even spritz my furniture with it.


2 cups water (distilled)
3 Tbs vodka
16 drops Lavender essential oil ( use a good quality lavender to avoid unneeded chemicals)

Directions:  Mix the essential oil and vodka together then add water. Seal in a mason jar or bottle with tight cap, store in a dark place for 2 weeks before using. occasionally lightly shake the bottle around the move the lavender oil around.  You can put it in a spritzer bottle after 2 weeks.
