Make Your Own Lavender Toilet Water

Lavender toilet water has a multitude of uses in the home. It is easy to make your own and save a little money at the same time.


  • 1.5 cups lavender flowers
  • 700ml (24 fl oz) boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons gin or vodka

  1. Pour the boiling water over the lavender flowers in a large ceramic bowl. Set aside for 24 hours at room temperature. This will permit the fragrance to infuse through the water.
  2. Place the infusing mixture into the refrigerator to continue infusing for another 2 days.
  3. Remove after 2 days. Strain the water through a sieve to remove the lavender flowers.
  4. Add the alcohol and mix through.
  5. Pour into a glass bottle and add an airtight lid. Homemade toilet water should be kept in the refrigerator.
