Don’t you think most air fresheners are a bit overpowering? Scents like strawberry fields, Hawaiian breeze, and pumpkin pie spice can just be too much.
I want my house, my bathroom, and my car to smell great without giving me a headache. Is that too much to ask?
The Most Luxe Room Spray Ever?
I recently concocted the most delicious, luxurious, best-smelling room spray. It makes my house smell like a Parisian boutique, a spa, or a rainforest. Or something in between.
In any case, this room spray is the bomb. It’s cheap to make and totally customizable. You should make some for yourself and some to give away as a gift.
How To Make DIY Aromatherapy Room Spray
I recently found myself with an overabundance of perfume samples. Since I knew I wasn’t going to use all of that perfume on myself, I decided to experiment with a homemade room spray.
Basically, I started out by spraying perfume into a glass bottle that I filled with distilled water. The perfume-water mixture was nice, as expected. But then I went a bit further and added some essential oils to the mix (mostly lavender, lemon, and grapefruit). I liked this mixture even better.
As I started using up the room spray, I decided to refill it with more water, a different perfume, and more essential oils. It still smelled amazing.
To make your own, here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 ounces distilled water
- 1 sample vial of perfume or a mix of two scents (your choice)
- 10+ drops essential oil (your choice; lavender, lemon, grapefruit, orange, pine, etc.)
You really can’t go wrong. If you like the perfume you are using – and you like the essential oils you are adding – you will probably like the scent. If not, no biggie. Start over with a different mix.
Here are the amber bottles I used:
