Spray
Ingredients
  • 40-50 drops (or approx. 1/2 tsp) lavender essential oil

  • small spray bottle
Instructions
  1. Mix the vodka and lavender essential oil in the bottle.
  2. Then, add distilled water to the bottle until it is almost full
  3. Shake the bottle to disperse the oils evenly throughout.
  4. Store the linen spray in the large glass bottle.
  5. To use: fill a small spray bottle with a fine mister.
  6. Shake lightly before each use. Use a bottle that has a fine mist to ensure proper dispersion of the spray.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
