Would you like to give your home a fresh scent and get rid of the unpleasant smells? Perfect! We will show you an easy way to create your own personal room spray. Enjoy the effects of your favorite essential oils in every room. As you may know, many commercially available room fragrances contain chemical additives and synthetic scents. A homemade room spray offers a more acceptable alternative here.
What are the benefits of homemade room sprays?
- Individualised scent
- quick and easy preparation
- natural ingredients
- more sustainable than pre-purchased room sprays
Which kind of essential oils can I use for the room spray?
If you want to make a room spray yourself, you should definitely use natural essential oils, e.g. from Casida. You can tell from the list of ingredients whether they are real essential oils (i.e. plant essences) or just synthetic fragrances.
Just use your favorite essential oils, that would be fine. The scents of the essential oils create different atmosphere in a room. How many drops of the respective oil you add depends on how intensely the room spray should smell. Here are a few ideas:
- Lavender oil, orange oil, patchouli oil
- Lemon oil, orange oil, bergamot oil, grapefruit oil
For a good concentration:
- Eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil, rosemary oil
Disinfectant effect in the case of a cold
- Tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil
For a very individual fragrance, you can mix the essential oils as you like or try out our ready-made aroma blends. Create a pleasant room atmosphere full of freshness and purity with the breathe-thru aroma blend “Atme durch” .
You need the following material for your individual room spray:
- 100 ml spray bottle
- 70 ml of water (preferably distilled)
- 30 ml alcohol, 40% vol. (e.g. vodka)
- 5 g baking soda
- 5 – 10 drops of essential oils of your choice
How to make room spray by myself?
Dissolve the baking soda in water. Then add the alcohol and stir everything well. Now drip in the essential oils of your choice. Use a funnel to fill the mixture into the spray bottle. Shake the room spray well before each use.
Why baking soda is needed?
Baking soda can neutralize bad smells and is therefore an ideal addition to room spray.
Reminder: The use of the room spray should be complemented by regular ventilation of the rooms.
