E is for Essential Oils: DIY Fall Room Spray
This post may contain affiliate links; find my full disclosure here.
There is something about fall that makes me want to fill the house with the scents of fruit and cinnamon and cloves. I love making my own room sprays with essential oils. These DIY room sprays add the perfect subtle scent to any room and I feel good knowing that I am not spraying unneeded chemicals and artificial fragrances into the air. Today I am sharing with you my favorite DIY fall room spray recipe. You are going to love it! Ready? Here we go:
Spray bottle – glass or aluminum is best for use with essential oils – I have found aluminum bottles at the dollar store in the hair care aisle or you can order something like these bottles or these bottles with cute chalkboard labels.
4 oz of distilled water
2 drops of Cinnamon Bark essential oil*
2 drops of Ginger essential oil*
2 drops of Clove essential oil*
2 drops of Cardamon essential oil*
4 drops of Wild Orange essential oil*
1/2 teaspoon of vodka or rubbing alcohol (optional but does help the mist evaporate more quickly)
Combine your ingredients in your spray bottle and give it a good shake. That’s it. So easy!
A bottle of fall room spray makes a great gift too. Add some ribbon, a silk flower or a piece of twine to jazz it up a bit. Perfect for a teacher gift, a hostess gift or just a little “love gift”.
*There are many choices for essential oils these days. Be sure to look for a pure, therapeutic grade essential oil from a reputable company. Some oils are not truly essential oils and can have unwanted additives. I buy my oils here: http://mydoterra.com/mybalancedlife.
