Why use air fresheners that don’t actually “freshen” the air? Most popular (and expensive) room sprays contain harmful chemicals that mask odors and often give people headaches. Why not make a natural room spray that smells better, is less expensive, and contains heavenly, natural scents, instead of harmful, synthetic chemicals!

Room Spray

1 oz. vodka
vegetable glycerine (a few drops)
25 drops essential oil
3 oz. purified water
4 oz. dark colored glass bottle

Pour vodka into 4 oz spray bottle and add essential oil of your choice. Shake vigorously for 45 seconds. Add water and shake again. Shake well before each use.”

To turn this into a “pillow spray to freshen sheets and towels, make all 4 oz. with alcohol instead of water. This way the mist will dry quickly and leave behind the intoxicating scent of pure essential oils!

Suggested oil singles and blends:

  • Christmas Spirit (Cinnamon-ish scent that is good for all year-round)
  • Thieves
  • Lemon
  • Citrus Fresh
  • Lavender
  • Three Wise Men
  • Joy
