I’m all about my essential oils lately. They’re just so perfect for raising your spirits, calming your nerves, and well, just generally smelling good. I’m in love with my new room freshener spray, actually, I have two of them – Lavender (Calming) and Citrus (Energizing & Uplifting). This is very similar to the Reed Diffuser I made couple weeks back.
DIY Room Freshener
Mini Spritz Bottle
I used some inexpensive bottles I got from the 99-cent travel pin at Wal-Mart. I decided to use some paper scraps and Mod Podge to make my spritz bottles a bit prettier.
Fill the container almost three-quarters of the way with water. For my Calming Spray, I used about ten drops of your lavender oil. For my Energizing & Uplifting Spray, I used five drops of Sweet Orange, and five drops of Lemongrass.
This little spray is the perfect size for any room in the house – or even the car. And (bonus!) I find that a little spritz of the lavender in the bathroom during baths or in the bedroom during stories works beautifully at winding the kids down at the end of the day. Conversely, the Energizing & Uplifting Spray is a great way to get everyone (happily) moving in the morning.
I hope you’ll try this, and enjoy the benefits.
