Instructions

  1. 1

    Choose 100 per cent pure essential lavender oil because only this offers health benefits. The label will state "100 per cent pure." It is available at both health food stores and online.

  2. 2

    Prepare the mist spray bottle. Fill the bottle with 4 fluid ounces (or 120ml) of purified water. If you would like to make a larger batch, simply increase the proportions, such as doubling or tripling the amounts. The mist spray will last.

  3. 3

    Add 40 drops of the lavender essential oil to the water. Cap the bottle and shake well to mix ingredients.

  4. 4

    Use as needed. Usually 2 or 3 spritzes are sufficient for what you’ll be using it for, but it’s OK to use more.

Tips and warnings

  • Note that lavender used in small amounts is calming but, if utilised in large amounts, it can be a stimulant.
  • Do a quick test spray to make sure the bottle sprayer is releasing a fine mist and not a stream of liquid.
  • Store the mist bottle in a cool, dark place to protect the contents.
  • As the mist ages in the bottle it will grow stronger.
