Here is a really simple recipe for making your own room spray. You will only need a few ingredients, and in the long run it works out to be much cheaper than buying commercial brands. I also like that you can customize your fragrance preferences and these spays are also low irritant, which is ideal if you suffer from allergies.
You will need
Empty spray bottle
Essential or scented oils of your choice
With a spray bottle, solubulizer and some scented oil you can make your own room spray
1) First choose your oils depending on which room of your house the spray will be used. Lavender, jasmine, patchouli or vanilla are a lovely relaxing fragrances ideal for living areas or the bedroom. Lemon, orange or peppermint oils have an energizing and uplifting effect which are great for the office or work spaces. While strong and fresh scents like eucalyptus, rosemary or pine are great for reducing odour in bathroom or pet areas.
As these room sprays are only room fragrances it is not necessary to use 100% percent essential oils unless you choose to. Cheap scented oils work fine for this purpose and you can pick them up from the dollar stores.
2) Fill the spray bottle 1/3 full with tap water and then add 10 drops of the solubulizer which you can purchase here. Your local craft or health shop may also stock this. This ingredient is crucial as it enables the scented oils to evenly disperse within the water and stops the spray bottle from clogging up.
Add some solubulizer
3) Next add 10-15 drops of your chosen scented oil, return the lid to the bottle and shake it up well.
4) Lastly fill the spray bottle to the top with water and shake well. Your homemade air freshener is now ready to use!
