Simply follow these easy steps to make your own essential oil room spray with simple ingredients that are found at any pharmacy or craft shop. First, fill a glass spray bottle half with distilled water and half with distilled witch hazel. Next, use a pair of long tweezers to spread the witch hazel over the distilled water to create a thin, mist-like substance. Next, fill the glass spray bottle again with distilled water and add your essential oil, if using.
Using essential oil room sprays allows you to refresh yourself as you enjoy your favorite scent. What better way to do it than to inhale the fragrance directly in your home, right? Most essential oil room sprays contain either Rosemary or lavender essential oil, which are perfect for rejuvenating your senses. Imagine the relaxation you'll feel when coming home after a long day at work, only to have your favorite scent waft through the walls and into your home where you can immediately begin to feel relaxed and recharge. Once you're feeling more relaxed, then you'll be able to sleep better, focus better, be less tired, and enjoy your day much better.
When you make your own essential oil room spray, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. First, make sure to choose a spray that is safe for your children, pets, and home. These sprays typically don't contain strong, artificial scents so they aren't going to overpower your home or your family's lifestyle. For example, Rosemary oil is often used in aromatherapy, but it isn't considered a toxic oil so it will be okay to include it as a scent in your home. Just remember that essential oils can react with other fragrances and cleaning products so be sure to test any essential oils on a hidden area of your closet before trying to use them in an area that is commonly frequented by everyone.
There are also essential oil bottles that you can buy in bulk. If you don't have many bottles lying around your house, then buying a bottle of spray in bulk may be your best option. Bulkier bottles will last longer and they won't degrade as fast so they can be used multiple times without degrading. Just be aware that the strongest essential oils will be most likely to irritate your skin so choose a bottle of spray that isn't too strong.
Lastly, if you're looking for an aromatherapy essential oil that has a very subtle scent then dried flowers are a good choice. In fact, dried flowers are great because they still have a lot of the plant's essential oils within them. If you mix a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil with a couple drops of dried flowers then you'll have a very powerful aroma. Just be careful about how much you add to the dry flowers because if you dilute the oil then it will be much weaker than it was when it was freshly extracted from the flowers. A good rule of thumb is that a drop of essential oil should about be diluted in three to five percent of a drop of flower.
