How To Make A Body Spray With Essential Oils

Are you tired of using store-bought body sprays filled with chemicals and synthetic fragrances? Ditch the commercial products and create your very own personalized body spray using essential oils! In this guide, we'll walk you through the simple steps to make your own body spray with essential oils, ensuring that your homemade body mist is natural and caters to your unique preferences.

Selecting the Essential Oils

Begin by choosing essential oils that appeal to your senses and fit your desired mood. The oils you select will determine the aroma, as well as any therapeutic benefits. When selecting essential oils, consider the following:

  • Mood enhancement - choose oils with uplifting and mood-balancing properties such as lavender, citrus oils, or chamomile.
  • Energy boost - for a rejuvenating effect, consider peppermint, eucalyptus, or rosemary oils.
  • Relaxation and sleep - to promote relaxation, opt for soothing oils like sandalwood, ylang-ylang, or clary sage.
  • Customization - mix and match oils to create your unique scent.

Gathering Your Supplies

To make your essential oil body spray, you will need the following supplies:

  • Glass or metal spray bottle (avoid plastic, as essential oils can degrade plastic over time)
  • A measuring cup or cylinder
  • A funnel (optional)
  • Distilled or filtered water
  • Witch hazel or alcohol (to help disperse the oils and prolong the scent)
  • The essential oils of your choice

Creating Your Body Spray

Follow these simple steps to create your customized essential oil body spray:

  1. Choose your scent - decide on your preferred combination of essential oils, keeping in mind their individual properties and how they blend together. Experiment with different ratios until you find the perfect balance.
  2. Prepare your bottle - ensure the spray bottle is clean and dry, ready for use.
  3. Combine the oils - add the desired number of drops of each essential oil to the spray bottle. Total drops for a 100ml spray bottle should be between 20-40 drops, depending on the strength of the scent you desire.
  4. Add witch hazel or alcohol - fill the bottle with approximately 1/4 of witch hazel or alcohol. This helps disperse the oils and prolong the scent life of your body spray.
  5. Add water - using a funnel, fill the remainder of the container with distilled or filtered water. Make sure you leave enough space at the top to insert the spray nozzle.
  6. Shake and spray - tightly secure the lid and shake well to blend the ingredients together. Whenever you use your body spray, ensure you shake it well to disperse the oils evenly.
