I can’t quit the room sprays! My friend walked into my house the other day and told me it smelled like a spa. And I felt like I had won at life. I loved that she felt welcomed into my home with a relaxing scent. But now for the holidays, I’m all about making my home feel more Christmas-y. This DIY essential oil room spray for the holidays is easy to make and will make your friends and family feel like Santa could pop into the room at any minute. I only share things I love and think you’ll like too. This post contains affiliate links. That means if you buy something through one of these links, I am compensated.
I don’t complain about my California winters. I love the warmer weather and our total lack of snow. But, if you aren’t careful your Christmas tree can dry out and die before Christmas. And since I already have night anxiety (self-diagnosed), I don’t need another disaster to worry about in the middle of the night. Until we get our tree up, and can smell the gorgeous fresh pine scent, I like to use a room spray to make the house smell more festive.
How to Make an Essential Oil Room Spray for the Holidays
Room sprays are super easy to make. You probably already have essential oils at home that you can use. I bought these larger bottles last year when I hosted a holiday wine and essential oils party. But I still have a bunch left over. You can follow my recipe or make your own with your preferred smells. The process is the same and once you know how to do it, you can make these all year long.
Supplies for your holiday spray:
• Witch Hazel
• Siberian Fir
• Juniper Berry (I LOVE juniper! It’s such a fresh, herbal smell.)
• Cinnamon or Cassia (Cinnamon bark has that real deep cinnamon scent but can be very expensive. Cassia is a great substitute).
• Blue Glass Spray Bottle (this one has a mist top sprayer instead of the kind that I used. I’ve had mine for years)
• Paper cutter or scissors, double stick tape, etc. to use the printable labels.
Holiday Oils Blend for DIY Holiday Spray
• 4 drops Orange
• 3 drops Siberian Fir
• 2 drops Juniper Berry
• 1 drop Cinnamon Bark or Cassia (this smell is strong and will take over if you use too much!)
• 1 drop Clove (again – very powerful!)
• 1 drop Peppermint
This is how I like my spray, but you are free to change it up to your liking!
Instructions for your Christmas room spray:
• Add about an ounce of Witch Hazel to your glass bottle. If you don’t have Witch Hazel, you can use vodka. This helps to suspend the essential oils in the holiday spray. Since oil and water don’t mix, this part is essential (pun intended). I bought this bottle of Witch Hazel for my Good Vibes room spray and I have so much leftover!
• Add your essential oils to the Witch Hazel in the bottle.
• Put the lid on and shake well. Add about 3 ounces of water to the bottle. Put the lid on again and shake well. You will need to shake your holiday room spray well each time you use it.
I decided that my essential oil room spray needed a name. So I asked my family, which consists of my husband and two sons. I said I wanted it to have the word “elf” in it. You would not believe how many names, that were versions of “Elf Farts,” they came up with. It was rather impressive. But I decided to go with Eau de Elf instead. Because class.
There are a few designs of the Holiday Room Spray Labels to choose from. I love plaid in the winter so I thought it would make for a cute label. Just download the labels, print them, and cut them out!

Since I make so many room sprays, I don’t worry about making an heirloom quality label. And I use double stick tape so I can reuse the bottles easily. If you are giving these as a gift and want to do something a little more permanent you totally can. These are waterproof labels that you can use, but I did not format the design to these so you’ll have to play around with it. This spray has a hint of pine, a bit of citrus, a touch of cinnamon and is exactly what I think elves smell like…
A quick spritz before having guests over will make them think that you are ready for Christmas when, in fact, you are probably way behind on your present buying and you haven’t started wrapping anything yet. What they don’t know won’t hurt them!
Are you a fan of this essential oil room spray for the holidays? I’d love to hear what scents you use!
