Benefits of Essential Oil Room Spray
All Natural- because this room spray is made with essential oils, it doesn’t contain the toxic chemicals that some store-bought air fresheners do.
Friendly to the Earth- reusing a glass bottle saves the environment from plastic bottles and excess packaging.
It’s easy to customize. You can experiment with scents you enjoy for a more personalized DIY Room Spray. I like to add 2 tsp of vanilla to this recipe for a warmer scent. Another version I like is to mix orange oil and verbena oil for a fresh, clean scent. Orange, cinnamon, and clove are other favorites when the weather turns cold.
It’s safer than lighting a candle around pets and little ones.
Adding dried flowers makes this a pretty birthday or hostess gift.
Other Uses for this Room spray:
This room spray is also lovely when lightly sprayed-on sheets and bedding (always check on an inconspicuous spot first) or your pillow at night. As a bonus, lavender is thought to promote a restful night’s sleep.
It helps laundry smell amazing
Lightly spray onto wool dryer balls, then toss them into your dryer, making your laundry smell fresh and clean. I own short-term rental properties, and my guests often comment on how wonderful our sheets and linens smell in our reviews.
Vacuum Cleaner Refresh
Whenever my vacuum cleaner starts to smell like my dog- which happens more often than I like to admit, I spray this DIY room spray onto the filter in my vacuum, and it disperses as I clean.
Hubby’s gym bag
This room spray is perfect for those hard-to-wash items like gym bags (yours or hubby’s) and shoes that sometimes need a little bit of help.
