…I’m fairly certain it would smell like lilacs.
I think that somewhere along the way the verse in the Bible that said, ‘heaven will smell like lilacs’ just got lost in translation. But it HAD to have been in there at some point, right? 😉
When I bury my head in the blossoms (which I absolutely MUST do every single time I walk past them), I immediately feel a stirring in my soul.
If I knew that I could do it justice I would attempt to describe the aroma. But, I just can’t.
It’s almost too amazing to try and put into words.
So, I’ll just bottle it up instead!
It seems like I wait forever for my lilac tree to bloom. Every year I anxiously watch as the buds begin to form on the branches and then when the blossoms finally burst forth I begin that agonizing process of deciding the absolute perfect moment to snip them and bring them inside.
And then, after all of that waiting and watching it’s just over…done.
Because, unlike heaven, lilacs don’t last for an eternity.
So, making my own lilac room spray seemed like the perfect way to enjoy their fragrance long after the blossoms have faded.
How to Make Lilac Room Spray
Ingredients: Water, Vodka, Lilac fragrance oil
Directions: Fill spray bottle with 50/50 ratio of water to vodka.
Add 12 drops of lilac oil. Give it a shake, spray and if the scent isn’t strong enough, simply add a few more drops of lilac oil.
If you can put it in a glass misting bottle (found at Target!) and add a sweet little tag to it I can guarantee that you will love it even more!
And wouldn’t this make such a sweet gift for Mother’s Day?
Once you’ve made this lilac scented room spray you will be very tempted to spray it in every room in your house.
And someone may want to use it in the bathroom to cover up other less…ummmm….pleasing aromas.
But, do not, I repeat do NOT, let them.
You’ve captured the fragrance of heaven in a bottle and you wouldn’t want to go and tarnish it now would you? 😉
P.S. We’re so thrilled to be guest posting today for Glynnis Whitwer from Proverbs 31 Ministry and we would love to have you visit us there to see how we made this Dried Flower Necklace!
