Looking for a quick fix to get rid of this stale, I-totally-forget-to-air-the-room smell? Then you come to the right place! In this post, I show you how to make peony rose linen spray with essential oils. It’s a great way to freshen up the house, and since this DIY linen spray is made only with natural ingredients, it’s child-friendly and pet-safe. You can mist pillows, blankets, shower curtains, and the sofa. Or spray it on linens before ironing or even your little one’s stuffed animals. You only need 3 minutes and 4 ingredients to prepare this homemade linen spray recipe: distilled water, ethyl alcohol, peony essential oil and rose essential oil. And as an extra, Cyna made pretty and free printable labels to jazz up your spritz bottle and get the peony rose linen spray gift-ready for Mother’s Day or your BBF’s birthday. You can download the instructions and printable label below.
Peony Rose Linen Spray
Instead of using peony oil, you can also combine rose and geranium, rose and lavender, or peony and jasmine. Use alcohol that contains at least 95% alcohol, such as Everclear (190 Proof). The alcohol helps to combat bacteria (so important!) and evaporates immediately after spraying. It also acts as a solubiliser to keep the water and oils homogeneously mixed.
For the peony rose linen spray
- 60 ml (2.1 fl oz / 1/4 cup) distilled water
- 60 ml (2.1 fl oz / 1/4) ethyl alcohol (see tip above)
- 40 drops peony essential oil (Alternatively, use a high-quality peony fragrance oil.)
- 30 drops Bulgarian rose essential oil (Rosa damascena)
- 10 drops white rose essential oil (Rosa alba)
For packaging and gift giving
- 120 ml (4.2 fl oz) spritz bottle with a fine mister (I used an empty, cleaned deodorant bottle.)

1) Mix dry the linen spray
Using a funnel, fill the distilled water, ethyl alcohol, and the essential oils into the spritz bottle. Close the lid tightly and shake the bottle until the liquids are well combined.
2) Print and apply the label
Print the gift tags on DIN A4 or letter size self-adhesive or sticker paper and cut out along the grey outline. Adhere the label to the bottle. The label comes in different sizes, giving you more options when choosing a bottle.
How to use the DIY linen spray
Shake the linen spray before every use. Then spray from a distance of approximately 30 cm (12 in) to any soft surface.
Storage and shelf life
Stored in a dark, cool place, the linen spray can be stored for up to 12 months.
