Why Make Your Own Room Spray?
Store-bought air fresheners often contain chemicals and synthetic fragrances that can cause headaches, allergies and disrupt hormonal balance. By creating your own essential oil room spray, you avoid harsh chemicals and can customize the scent to suit your personal preference. Plus, it's an inexpensive and eco-friendly alternative to commercial air fresheners.
Benefits of Essential Oils in Room Sprays
Essential oils are natural extracts from plants, known for their therapeutic properties. Using essential oils in room sprays not only provides a pleasant fragrance but also offers various physical and emotional benefits such as:
- Boosting energy
- Improving sleep quality
- Reducing stress and anxiety
- Promoting mental clarity and focus
- Supporting respiratory health

DIY Room Spray With Essential Oils Example:
Suppose you're interested in creating a room spray to help you relax after a long day. You might select lavender (calming), bergamot (mood booster), and ylang-ylang (stress reliever) essential oils. In your 4-ounce glass bottle, add 10 drops of lavender, 8 drops of bergamot, and 7 drops of ylang-ylang. Mix in 2 tablespoons of witch hazel and fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water.
