Using Essential Oils in Room Sprays
Perfume a room with essential oils by using room sprays
If using a burner or an electric diffuser is inconvenient or not to
your taste, then you can make up room sprays instead, using water and
essential oils. The effect is less powerful than when you vaporize
essential oils, but some people prefer a less intense aroma. Room sprays
also have an instant effect.
Do not use plastic bottles; as essential oils can chemically react
with the plastic. It is important to remember that essential oils do not
dissolve in water, so you must shake the bottle vigorously every time
Making a room spray
- Take a glass bottle with a spray attachment and almost fill it
with cold water. For each 5 ml (1 teaspoon) of water, use 3 drops of
essential oils. For instance, a 100 ml (3.5 fl oz) bottle will take 60
drops of essential oils.
- A room freshener might include lavender, rosewood, bergamot and
sweet orange. For a bathroom or toilet, a suitable blend could be
cedarwood, juniper, pine and lemon. To create a sensuous evening
atmosphere you could try rose, patchouli, mandarin and sandalwood.
