Recipe for Natural Room Spray

Recipe for Natural Room Spray
It's all too easy for the air inside your home to smell less than fresh. Room sprays are commonly used to freshen up the air and leave behind a pleasant scent. The problem is, many products that you buy in the store are loaded with harmful chemicals. Sure, it could be pleasant to make your home smell like a rainy day or apple pie, but chances are pretty good that these scents were created in a test tube. Of course, there are exceptions to this statement and there are plenty of natural room sprays that you can buy.

However, it can be fun and incredibly satisfying to make your own room deodorizing spray using natural ingredients. To prepare this recipe, you'll need an eight ounce spray bottle that has been cleaned and sterilized. The first time you make the recipe, follow it as it is written. Over time, you can experiment by using your own combinations of essential oils.

Natural Room Spray Recipe



  • 6 ounces distilled water

  • 1 teaspoon vodka

  • 1 ounce witch hazel

  • 10 drops lavender essential oil

  • 5 drops chamomile essential oil

  • 5 drops vanilla essential oil


  • Instructions:



    Pour the distilled water into the spray bottle. Add the vodka and witch hazel. Cover the spray bottle and shake the ingredients together gently until distributed.

    Uncover the spray bottle. Add the lavender, chamomile, and vanilla essential oils. Cover the spray bottle again and shake it to distribute the oils. Let the ingredients set for about an hour before you begin using the spray. Shake every time you use it.

    Essential Oil Combinations



    You can basically use any combination of essential oil that you want, as long as the total between all the oils equals 20 drops. Here are some ideas for combinations:

  • 10 drops bergmot, 5 drops lemon, 5 drops peppermint

  • 5 drops peppermint, 5 drops eucalyptus, 5 drops rosemary, 5 drops lavender

  • 10 drops chamomile, 10 drops vanilla

  • 10 drops lavender, 10 drops vanilla


  • You can use whichever oils you want, as long as you like the way they smell together. Make sure that you use pure and natural essential oils and that you don't buy synthetic fragrances. I personally love Aura Cacia's essential oils because I find that they're relatively inexpensive and are of a good, consistent quality. This starter kit contains some of my favorite oils!
