For some, Winter can be a depressing time of year. After the hustle and bustle of the holidays it’s easy to get the winter blues thinking about several more months of dark, dreary weather.
Scents are a great way to energize, and a DIY room spray is a quick way to diffuse an aroma.
Here are 5 essential oil blends for an uplifting room mist. First, the basics on making your own room spray.
Basic DIY Room Spray
- 3 Tablespoons distilled water
- 3 Tablespoons vodka or witch hazel – This is what helps the scent linger longer in the air.
- 20-40 drops of favorite essential oil or essential oil blend
- 4 ounce spray bottle
(Recipe can easily be doubled!)
Mix water, oils and vodka in a spray bottle. Shake vigorously and mist rooms throughout your home. Note: many citrus oils are phototoxic so please use your oils safely.
