Kill Dust Mites! …with Lavender???

Did you know that tea tree kills mites? It’s got Terpinen-4-ol in it but admittedly it doesn’t smell good enough to spray all over your sheets… but lavender does! And, it’s got Terpinen-4-ol in it too.

I’ve been buying my Lavender linen sprays from lavender farms, paying a whopping $20+ per bottle.  I thought it couldn’t be that difficult to make it myself and wham!, it literally took me 5 minutes to put together and cost about $3 to make.  So, save yourself piles of money with this linen spray that’ll have you loving hitting the sheets every night.

Lavender helps with relaxation so you can get a better night’s sleep.


What to use:

  • 3 oz of distilled or spring water
  • 1 tbsp all natural witch hazel (alcohol free)
  • 20 drops Lavender (where to buy)


How to make:

Combine all ingredients in a glass or plastic 4oz spray bottle.

Spray on as needed.

Enjoy and rest well!
