I’m not exactly known for my short and sweet tutorials. But, I assure you this recipe for making DIY scented room spray is exactly that…short and sweet! What I like best about this DIY room spray is that it uses natural ingredients and natural scents. The chemical or fake smell of commercially bought room deodorizers really bothers me.
Ingredients & Supplies:
- Spray bottles (found at Dollar Tree)
- Distilled water
- Essential Oils (lavendar, lemon, rosemary, cinnamon, cranberry)
- Avery Kraft Brown Labels (22808)
- Ribbon or twine
Optional: shape cutting scissors
Drop approximately 15 drops of each essential oil in the bottom of a squirt bottle. These are a few of the scents I experimented with:
- Lemon + Lavendar
- Lavendar + Rosemary
- Lemon + Rosemary
- Rosemary + Cinnamon
- Cranberry + Cinnamon
If you are feeling less adventurous, you can stick to one scent and add 20 drops to the bottle.
Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water. (You might wish to have labels already pre-printed or put a sticky note on each so you don’t forget which concoction you have inside.)
Design your labels. Avery.com has some great designs already created for you. Simply download the file and edit in MS Word.
Print your labels. If you desire to fancy them up, cut around the edges with shape scissors. Tie a ribbon around the neck and give them out as favors or gifts this holiday season!
You’d probably make the gift recipient even happier if you include a printed copy of the recipe ;-).
