How to Make Your Own Lavender Linen Spray

I found this do-it-yourself recipe on the Free People blog, BLDG 25.  It was within an article about organizing your intimates drawer.  Since I have collected so many bras and panties from Victoria’s Secret over the years, what made a huge difference in organizing my intimates drawer was installing drawer dividers for this purpose.  A well-organized drawer is so helpful; age doesn’t matter!
