It’s a simple formula.
A spray bottle.
Your favourite essential oil.
A cup of warm water. To release the fragrance of the essential oil.
And vodka to set the fragrance. As in perfume.
This is a suck it and see expedition.
I always start with a cup of warm water in a spray bottle.
And add my favourite essential oil. Not in drops.
I start with half a teaspoon.
Shake the bottle.
Spray it on a test fabric.
Is it the right depth of headiness for you?
Not too little.
Not too much.
Keep adding until the fragrance is just right for you.
Then add a teaspoon of vodka to one cup of water.
This isn’t essential. But this is how perfume is set. With alcohol.
The alcohol sets the fragrance.
So it doesn’t dissipate before the end of the week.
Shake the bottle well before using.
Do NOT spray while you’re ironing. The heat of the iron will neutralise both the essential oil. And the vodka.
Spray your tea towels. Pillow cases. Sheets. Garments. After they’re ironed.
And give them a few minutes to dry.
How simple is this!?
