Creating your home-made, non-toxic air fresheners is a great way to purify air and getting rid of any odours. I have tested and created an home-made vanilla spray which I can promise you smells absolutely delicious!
You can use your home-made linen spray in different ways:
- Linen Spray for your bedding
Add some mist to your bed linen: this will help getting rid of any germs accumulated over night, and will clear the sheets from any odours
- Clothes Linen Spray
Spray it on your clothes before getting dressed
- Linen Spray for Ironing
Use a few drops of the vanilla spray mixture when ironing clothes. The warmth of the iron will make the vanilla scent blend with water, and will give you a delicious smell

Vanilla Linen SprayPrint This
Being Italian I personally absolutely love the Made in Italy Robert’s Acqua Alle Rose (literally Rose Water). I use this instead of a normal purified water because it give the solution that extra subtle rose scent. This is actually also a very good tonic you can use to cleanse and moisturize your skin.
Tools you will need:
- Wide mouth mason jar
- Small stainless steel funnel
- 2oz small cobalt blue glass spray bottle
- Chalkboard label sheets with marker
I got my funnel on Amazon: I prefer the stainless steel type from the silicone one as it slips oils through more easily. For the bottles, I recommend using 2 oz cobalt blue glass bottles because this color help protect the essential oils from harmful UV rays. Avoid using plastic and stick to glass which is more sustainable and will not leach any harmful chemical into the mixture. Finally, my favourite labels are the chalkboard and I got my kit of mixed labels + marker, also from Amazon.
Step 1: Pour the purified water in the mason jar and add the witch hazel
Step 3: Add the vanilla essential oils
Step 4: Close the jar with the lid and share well to combine
Step 5: Place the funnel in the 2 oz spray bottle and pour the mixture in.
Done! Start sprinkling the linen spray choosing your preferred method, and start your day with the right “vanilla” mood 🙂
To enhance the air purification effect, spray the mist after you have opened the window to let some fresh air in.
