Make your own air freshener spray

lavender bottle

At the florists where my niece bought me some flowers they included a bottle of room spray. You can choose whatever scent you like and they will create the spray for you. You can take your bottle back and get refils when you run out. I thought that was a pretty cool idea, so I researched how I could make my own. I found this recipe at Re-nest and it’s very simple and you can personalize it to whatever scent you like.

  • 1 oz gin, vodka, or rubbing alcohol
  • 6 oz filtered water
  • 20 – 40 drops of essential oil (any scent you like!)

Simply mix in a spray bottle and spray around for instant freshness. This mix will keep well for at least a month.  I’ve been using bergamot, which smells very orangey and citrusy – it’s cheerful and clean smelling without being overpowering, but I think Jasmine would be nice, or lavender for a bedroom would be relaxing – and since you’re making your own, you can change it up whenever you like!
