Aromatherapy Room Mist Air Freshener Recipe

I love this very basic and easy-to-make Room Mist / Air Freshener recipe. Although I give example essential oil blends below, you can easily adapt this recipe for use of your favorite essential oils. Just pay attention to all safety data for the essential oils that you use.

Room Mists that I Created for Personal UseIngredients:

  • 4 oz. clean spray bottle with a fine mist setting (do not use a bottle that previously contained cleaning products or hair products such as hair spray).

  • 30-40 drops of your favorite essential oil or essential oil blend keeping the safety data of the chosen essential oil(s) in mind.

  • 1.5 ounces of distilled water or hydrosol and 1.5 ounces of high-proof alcohol. Alternatively, you may omit the alcohol and increase the amount of distilled water or hydrosol to 3 ounces. The alcohol helps the aroma linger for a longer duration. When working with alcohol in aromatherapy sprays, Vodka or Everclear are suitable. Isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol should be avoided for aromatherapy use because they typically contain additives, and the aroma of these types of alcohol may overpower the aroma of your room mist.

Example essential oil blends that may be used:

Be sure and take heed in the safety data for the oil(s) you choose to use since an air freshener, by its nature, will come in contact with all those in your household.


Directions:

Fill the spray bottle with the choice of either 1.5 ounces of distilled water and 1.5 ounces of alcohol or 3 ounces of distilled water. (Even though a 4 oz. bottle is suggested, leave about 1 oz. unfilled so you can shake the bottle well immediately before each use.) Then, add 30-40 drops of essential oil. Essential oils can very in strength. You may want to try 20 drops at first especially if you live in a household with someone who is sensitive to strong aromas. After you first make and try the spray, let it sit for about a day before making a conclusion that the aroma is too weak; the aroma can change after the air freshener has had time to sit and the essential oils have had a chance to "marry."

A special sidenote about the sprayer bottles: Be careful to not overfill your sprayer bottles. It not only is important to ensure that you have room for the spray to be shaken well, it also ensures that the essential oil doesn't float to the very top between uses and eat at the rubber gasket contained in the sprayer mechanism.

I've rarely had a problem with my sprayers failing to work, and I've been trying to figure out why some people, using the same type of sprayer, sometimes state that they've had consistent problems with the sprayer failing to work after only a short time. After thinking on it, I'm suspecting the likely culprits are (a)overfilling the bottles and (b) not shaking well immediately before each use.


To Use:

Shake the bottle immediately before each use. Mist lightly in the room. Be especially careful not to allow the air freshener mist fall onto furniture or into open beverages.
