5. A funnel (optional, but useful)

6. A small mixing bowl or cup

7. A small stirring utensil (a spoon or small whisk works well)

Choosing Your Essential Oils

When selecting your essential oils, think about the purpose and intention behind your spray. Want relaxation? Opt for lavender, chamomile, or ylang-ylang. Need an energy boost? Try peppermint, lemon, or orange. Curating a blend of oils based on their benefits will ensure your spray delivers on its purpose.

How to Make Essential Oils Spray

Follow the steps below to create a custom essential oils spray:

Step 1: Choose a Glass Spray Bottle

It's important to use a glass bottle for your essential oils spray, as the oils can degrade plastic over time. Choose a dark-colored glass to protect the oils from light exposure and maintain their potency.

Step 2: Mix Your Essential Oils

In a small mixing bowl or cup, add your chosen essential oils. Typically, a 2-ounce spray bottle calls for 10-15 drops of essential oil total. If using different oils, mix and match to create a blend that suits your needs.

Step 3: Add Carrier Oil (Optional)

If you're making a body spray or a spray that will come into direct contact with the skin, adding a carrier oil can help dilute the essential oils and reduce the risk of skin irritation. A carrier oil also helps the aroma linger longer. If using a carrier oil, add a teaspoon to your essential oil blend.

Step 4: Add Distilled Water

Fill your glass spray bottle about three-quarters full with distilled water. Using distilled water ensures that no impurities interfere with the scent or therapeutic properties of your essential oils.

Step 5: Combine Ingredients

Pour your essential oil blend (and carrier oil, if using) into your glass spray bottle. Use a funnel if needed for precision. After pouring, top off the bottle with distilled water, leaving a little bit of space at the top.

Step 6: Shake and Use

Secure the spray nozzle onto the bottle and give it a good shake. This helps to thoroughly mix the ingredients together, ensuring an even dispersion of oils in each spray. Shake before each use, as the oils may naturally separate over time.

How To Make Essential Oils Spray Example:

Problem: Trouble sleeping due to stress and an overactive mind.

Solution: Create an essential oils spray that promotes relaxation and sleep by combining:

- 5 drops of lavender (calming)

- 3 drops of chamomile (relaxation)

- 2 drops of cedarwood (grounding)

Follow the steps outlined above, adding these oils to a 2-ounce glass spray bottle. Lightly mist your linens and pillow for a restful night's sleep.
