Aromatic Linens

Aromatic Linens

Do you like your Linens to be aromatic?  Enjoying Aromatic Linens is a tradition that has been followed for hundreds of years.   Many still use dried herb sachets to add a soft fragrance to their linens, but essential oils can also be used to do this.

An elusive, gentle aroma can be added to your clothing or bed linens using essential oils in a number of ways.

Washing by hand: add 1 – 2 drops of your blend to the final rinse water
Using a washing machine: add 3 – 5 drops to the final rinse.

Avoid using thick, heavy resinous essential oils such as frankincense and myrrh when using these methods.

You can also add blotting or construction paper that has had essential oils added to your shelves and drawers.

Hydrosols are another very gentle way of freshening up your sheets just before bed.  Simply mist your sheets and pillow with the hydrosol of your choice.  Orange Blossom, Rose, and Lavender are all good choices.  I also like to use Sweet Grass too.
