As far back as ancient Egyptian and Greek times, people used Lavender, Rosemary, Tansy, and other herbs for cleaning.
They freshened their linens by placing fragrant sachets, herbs, and flowers in drawers and closets. Homes were “sweetened” with garlands of Lavender and Mint.
With this simple formula you can “sweeten” your linens, too, and if you aren’t sensitive to essential oils, even use it to freshen and uplift rooms.
Sprinkle on sheets or other other linens to freshen. Spray onto linens before ironing.
