I have been low-key using essential oils for a few years now. While I’m not crazy-obsessed like some, I’ve found easy ways to use them for our family, like a bug spray or cleaner. If you haven’t yet made the jump to using essential oils because you feel like it’s intimidating, I understand. There are so many out there, it’s overwhelming. Or maybe you did get the huge starter set and don’t know where to begin.
Here’s one of my favorite ways to use them and it’s incredibly easy:
homemade lavender spray
Pour in 1 Tbs. of Witch Hazel and add 5 drops of lavender essential oil into spray bottle. Place lid on and shake well and then fill up the bottle with water, which will be about 1.5 oz. Shake well to incorporate all ingredients.
And that’s it! Use for a pillow mist, linen refresher, room freshener, aromatherapy, or anytime you need a little lavender in your life.
I bought these spray bottles from Amazon, and they’re a perfect size and look great sitting out. I have several different sprays that I’ve been using over the past couple years. If you’re interested in essential oil posts, let me know and I’ll share the best ones here. I’m currently perfecting a hair detangler that I’m hoping to nail down, and if I do I’ll be sure to share that one.

I’m grabbing spearmint, cedarwood, and coconut oil. I love the combo of spearmint and eucalyptus together and I’ve heard cedarwood may be able to help me with my postpartum hair loss.
