How To Make Lavender Water And It’s Uses

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.
