DIY Room Spray made with Essential Oils
With fall comes the urge to make our homes feel cozy and welcoming. One of the easiest ways to do this is through scent.
I love a beautiful fall candle! But whether you are trying to eliminate the toxins in your home, or you want an alternate way to scent the air, this DIY room spray is amazing!
It took me 5 tries to get this combination right! I wanted to make sure it was a little bit woodsy, with hints of citrus and a touch of spice. And I didn’t want it to smell anything like potpourri or the traditional pumpkin spice. I think I nailed it with this combination.
What Essential Oils Make A Room Smell Good
My favorite essential oils for fall are Spruce, Ginger, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Orange and Clove.
I you prefer a more woodsy fall scent I love Eucalyptus mixed with Cedar and Orange.
For this fall DIY room spray recipe, I have mixed the perfect combination of essential oils to make your home smell cozy, inviting and fresh! No grandma scents here! See below for the full detailed recipe.
How To Make Room Spray with Witch Hazel
Making your own non-toxic room spray is simple. And these would make the best gifts! Whether a hostess gift, a just-because gesture or a house warming present, these DIY room sprays make a great impression!
First, place 40-50 drops of essential oils in a 4 ounce glass bottle. Add 1 tablespoon of witch hazel and top off the rest with distilled water. Shake well.
The witch hazel helps the oil and water mix so you have a good concentration of scent with each spritz!
You can also sub out the witch hazel a pinch of epsom salts or Himalayan pink salt. Just add a pinch to the bottle and shake to combine. And check out my recipe for Himalayan Salt Bath Soak. Another great DIY gift!
And if you are giving these as a gift, you may want to add a cute ribbon or gift tag too. I love adding bakers twine to these to keep with the rustic vibe.
