Holiday Room Sprays

November 14, 2017

The rustic evergreen of a fresh cut christmas tree; spicy, warming cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves; bright, citrusy orange or the fresh, minty smell of candy canes – these can all bring the good feelings of seasonal cheer, the reminder or family and love and the promise of a season full of joy and happy memories.

These holiday inspired all-natural scents will not only provide a welcoming and cozy, seasonal setting perfect for holiday gatherings, but you’ll also be reaping the many therapeutic benefits of the essential oils, too. Purifying the air, warming your soul and uplifting your spirit, these room sprays are inexpensive to make, you can customize your scents and your blends to make your own personalized aroma and of course, they make an amazing gift.

This formula and the various blends fill a 4oz bottle, but feel free to double or triple your recipe.

What You Need:

• Distilled water / vodka or grain alcohol / witch hazel

• 30 – 50 drops of Young Living Essential Oils (see below for blend suggestions)

Glass spray bottles. (Avoid plastic as essential oils tend to break down the plastic. I also recommend an amber colored glass for maximum shelf life)

When making a 4 oz bottle, I prefer to work with 3 ounces of 80 or 100 proof vodka, as it helps the essential oils and water mix easier and the aroma tends to linger a little longer, I then top off each bottle with distilled water. You can also use witch hazel instead of vodka or if you prefer, you can also use only distilled water.

Add the 3oz vodka or witch hazel (or distilled water) to your 4oz bottle. Add the essential oils you are using (see recipes below). Place the top on and shake well to combine, then top off with distilled water. Shake contents and mist the air throughout your home.
