So, let's dive in and learn about the benefits of lavender and how to create a beautiful lavender spray without essential oils.

Benefits of Lavender

Lavender is a popular herb known for its calming and relaxing effects. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine practices, aromatherapy, and even as a culinary ingredient. The many benefits of lavender include:

  • Promoting relaxation and a sense of well-being
  • Improving sleep quality and ease insomnia
  • Relieving headaches, muscle tension, and stress
  • Working as a natural insect repellent
  • Providing a pleasant and calming aroma

Why Make Lavender Spray Without Essential Oils?

Although essential oils are a concentrated way to harness the powerful properties of lavender, there are a few reasons why you might want to create a lavender spray without using them:

  • Essential oils can be pricey, especially if you want high-quality, pure, and unadulterated oils
  • Some individuals may have sensitivities to certain essential oils or be allergic to specific compounds within them
  • Creating a homemade lavender spray without essential oils is a great way to use up extra lavender from your garden or simply try a more cost-effective and natural approach

Ingredients and Supplies Needed

Before you begin crafting your homemade lavender spray, you'll need the following ingredients and supplies:

  • Fresh or dried lavender flowers
  • Distilled water
  • Witch hazel or vodka
  • Fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth
  • Measuring cup
  • Clean, empty spray bottle
  • Labels (optional)

Step-by-Step Guide to Making Lavender Spray Without Essential Oils

Follow these simple steps to create your very own natural lavender spray:

Create Your Own Essential Oil

Have you ever dreamt of crafting your own personalised Artisan Essential Oil blend? We've turned this dream into reality. Every blend is carefully hand-blended and prepared to order, tailoring a sensory experience as unique as you.

Choose from our expertly curated blends or explore your creativity. Delve into the essence of up to three handpicked ingredients. It's an opportunity to let your intuition guide you.

  1. Begin by harvesting your lavender flowers. If using fresh lavender, make sure to pick the flowers in the morning, after any dew has dried. If you don't have access to fresh lavender, dried lavender flowers are a great alternative and can be purchased online or at a local herb store.
  2. Prepare your lavender-infused water. In a medium-sized pot, bring two cups of distilled water to a boil. Remove from heat, add 2-3 tablespoons of fresh or dried lavender flowers, and cover with a lid to steep. Allow the mixture to cool completely to room temperature. This process helps to extract the beneficial properties and scent of the lavender flowers.
  3. Strain the lavender-infused water. Use a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to separate the lavender flowers from the water, collecting the infused water in a clean container. Discard the lavender flowers.
  4. Add a preservative. To ensure the longevity of your lavender spray and prevent bacteria growth, mix in 1 tablespoon of witch hazel or vodka. This will also help the spray evaporate quickly when used.
  5. Pour your lavender-infused water mixture into a clean, empty spray bottle. Secure the lid and label your bottle, if desired.
  6. Give your new lavender spray a shake before each use to blend the ingredients. You're now ready to enjoy the calming scent of lavender throughout your home, on your pillows, or even as a body mist.
