Lovely Linen

I think I am a pretty sensory person, when I buy clothes I have to touch them all over before I know if I like them which Peter finds hilarious. I am also a big fan of all things smelly (in a good way) and am obsessed with room sprays and scented candles.

Because of this, and my obsession with fresh sheets, I am going to share with you my favourite linen sprays. If you haven't explored the world of linen sprays, my word are you in for a treat (no irony in that sentence at all despite how sort of ridiculous it sounds). Although you can choose lovely fragrances for your washing machine, by mid week, your bed linen just doesn't have that same comforting, freshness. Or when your favorite cashmere jumper needs a bit of pep before you have to reluctantly hand wash the damn thing - you just need a little spritz!

SO here are some of my favs...

Jo Malone is my go-to place for Christmas and birthday presents and this room spray comes in my favourite scent Lime, Basil and Mandarin - spray on your pillow, clothes and towels for every day indulgence. At £38 its on of the more expensive on my list but I think its worth it 

At £7 this is a steal from The Body Shop. The Aloe & Linen scent is clean and fresh and the ingredients are 100%. For that price, just spray it everywhere

Whereas many of the sprays on this list can be used as room sprays too, The White Company have created a spray especially for linen. It is fresh and clean although for me I tend to look for something a bit more exotic scent-wise. At £15 it is very reasonably priced though

I love L'Occitane's floral, quintessentially French scents and you don't get more French than this Lavendar spray. I love to spray it onto bed linen as I iron it for the most amazing aroma which seems to last days. It is £39 for 300ml

A cheaper alternative would be this lavender spray from Naturally Thinking which is just £6. As I am sure you know, lavender is great for helping you sleep so spray a little on your pillow before bed for a deep and rejuvenating sleep...zzzz

You could also have a go at making your own linen spray if you want to. Its quite easy to do, just add the following ingredients to a seal-able container and shake vigorously before adding to a spray bottle:




  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) witch hazel or vodka
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) water

Let me know if you have any other suggestions!
