This DIY Room Spray brings good vibes
An essential oil room spray recipe is quick and easy to make and some times totally needed (especially if you live with multiple boys in the house like I do).
A homemade room spray is a simple solution that can help make the house smell beteer. I’m also a wannabe hippie so I love the idea of good vibes and positivity and blah, blah, blah.
I love essential oils and have tons of them (I think they are a great way to include a little “me time” during your day). Regardless of whether you believe in oils or not, they simply smell amazing.

And to me, good smells help me shift my mind frame. I made this anti bad vibe room spray to help change my negative Nancy mood. Mom life can stress a gal out, yo.
I’m guessing you can use some good vibes too.
While I really loved the combination of oils used in this room spray with essential oils, you can mix and match per your own preferences. This smells amazing and if it happens to help lift up my spirits, all the better.

Here’s what you need to make an essential oils spray with witch hazel
I used witch hazel in this recipe to help blend the essential oils with the water since oil and water don’t mix. But you can also use vodka if you don’t have witch hazel.
I also use rose water in this recipe. It has a slight aroma that helps to promote calmness and tranquility but you can still make this even if you don’t use the rose water as it can be hard to find.
How to make a Room Spray with essential oils
1. Add the oils to witch hazel
To your glass bottle, add 1 ounce of witch hazel. Add the essential oils and put on the lid. Shake well.
The witch hazel will help the oils distribute in the water better.
2. Add the rose water
Add 3 ounces of rose water. Put the lid back on and shake well again.
3. Add the essential oils
Everybody knows that lavender is the best and totally relaxing so I go heavy with that oil. I would do about 10 drops of lavender.
Ylang ylang, lemon, and bergamot are also mood uplifting and calming. I would do 5 each of these oils.
And while I picked Juniper Berry because of how the smell works with the other essential oils, it also helps relieve tension and stress. This also brings a grounding scent (almost pine like). I would use between 5 and 10 drops of this oil depending on how much you like earthy scents.
The average amount of essential oils used in a room spray is between 20-40 drops depending on the strength of the scents and how bold you like your room to smell.
Oils are best stored in a cool dark spot. So while the blue bottle will help to protect the oils, it’s best to keep the bottle out of direct sunlight.
If you feel like you or your home are in a funk you should definitely make this DIY Room Spray for good vibes! This refreshing blend of essential oils will help change your mood! Just spritz and smile.
Sometimes you can’t get a change of scenery to help alleviate your stress. But you can make your space feel different (more spa-like even). Essential oils are a great way to do that.
You will need to shake the DIY room spray with essential oils well each time you use it to mix really well.
Feel free to change up the DIY essential oil spray recipe with oils based on the smells you like. Good vibes are just around the corner.
