The Problem With Conventional Linen Spray

Linen spray and fabric fresheners (like Febreeze) are filled with toxic chemicals and artificial fragrances. In fact, one study featured on the National Center of Biotechnology Information looked at over 90 fragrances and determined that these artificial scents may mutate cells in the body and may be linked to Autism Spectrum Disorder (source: NCBI).

Luckily, there is a far more natural approach you can take simply by making your own linen spray using essential oils that can actually enhance, not damage your health.

Essential Oil Linen Spray

Natural linen spray is perfect for freshening larger, upholstered items that can’t be easily added to a load of laundry. Think: rugs, carpets, furniture, decorative pillows, toys, etc. Natural linen spray can also be used on pillows before bedtime for light aromatherapy to help with sleep.

A few of my favorite essential oils that you can use to create the ultimate linen spray include:

And because some essential oils have the added benefit of anti-microbial properties, they will help eliminate bacteria on your fabrics that can cause bad smells. Go above and beyond your linen spray by diffusing essential oils—they’re a perfect combination.
