A couple of weeks ago I made my own essential oils room spray and I’ve been loving it but it was in an ugly plastic spray bottle that I found in the back of a cupboard so I was a bit reluctant to show it off!
(I know, it’s not the way it looks that counts, it’s the way it smells but humour me)
I did really want to share it with you though because my essential oils room spray has made my house smell lovely and I thought you all might love the fact that it contains no chemicals or toxins as much as I do.
Once I figured out that I was an essential oils room spray fan, I figured it wouldn’t be a waste of money to buy something nicer than the ugly plastic bottle for the spray so I went on a hunt to find a cheap but pretty glass bottle instead. I found a load on Amazon here but they weren’t as pretty as I wanted (again, I know ;-)) so I had a search on eBay and found exactly what I was looking for….
Essential oils are available all over the place and there’s a great selection on both eBay and Amazon if you want to buy online cheaply but I actually bought my set of at TK Maxx where they were about £6 for the four I got. They also do them at my local chemist though for £1.30 each so I suspect I’ll be adding to my collection often!
Homemade essential oils room spray
1 tablespoon of witch hazel
20 – 30 drops of your chosen essential oils
A spray bottle
Pour the water and witch hazel into your spray bottle and then add between 20 and 30 drops of your favourite essential oil combination. I’m a bit of a novice when it comes to essential oils but I did want my essential oils room spray to small uplifting and invigorating so I went for a minty blend using 20 drops of peppermint essential oil and 10 drops of rosemary essential oil.
Once everything is on the bottle just pop on the lid and give it a good shake and your very own essential oils room spray is good to go.
I spray into the air avoiding any furnishings because even though I’ve never had a problem, it’s a mixture with oil in it so it’s best to be on the safe side. If you want to refresh your soft furnishings then I have my amazing homemade febreze to do that with.
PS. The witch hazel helps to disperse the essential oils throughout the water but it’s always best to give it a quick shake anyway before you use it.
(PS) As always, be careful spraying when using Essential Oils. This post shares a bit of information about what you should know before using essential oils.
