This lavender linen water is truly the very best! It's a natural lavender scent - not an obnoxious chemical scent like most others. I actually use this to make my own lavender fabric softener. My husband's skin was so sensitive, I couldn't add anything to the wash to soften or scent. So I tried adding a small amount of the lavender linen water to the Free & Clear fabric softener, and tried it on pillow cases to start with. No bad reaction, so little by little I added it to every wash load. It's such a clean fresh scent - I will continue to use until they discontinue or I die - whichever comes first !!!
