Essential oils are my new favorite thing.
Spray bottles are my OLD favorite thing.
Since I was young, I’ve had a weird thing about spray bottles. I really like using them in general, whether it be on my face to cool down, to clean a white board or mirror, or anything else. I hate cleaning, but if I’m going to do it, I will probably have a spray bottle in my hand.
Here are a bunch of things you can do with Essential Oils and a Spray Bottle! (Glass is best for essential oils, but plastic will be fine if you aren’t ingesting them.)
***Important Note: Some citrus oils are phototoxic, which means they make your skin more sensitive to the sun when applied topically. Be careful!
Use a fairly small bottle for these amounts, but they are all very flexible. (And customizable!)
Refreshing Face Mist: Water + 2 drops peppermint + 2 drops of your favorite essential oil for your face (lavender, basil, and ylang ylang are good for your skin!) + Optional 1-3 drops eucalyptus or tea tree if desired
Citrus Room Spray: 6 parts water + 1 part rubbing alcohol/vodka + 5 drops orange + 5 drops lemon + 3 drops grapefruit (Just add a small amount of alcohol to the water to help the oils stay mixed and dry faster.)
Manly Room Spray: 6 parts water + 1 part rubbing alcohol/vodka + 7 drops cedarwood + 5 drops bergamot
Anti-Stink Spray: 6 parts water + 1 part rubbing alcohol/vodka + 5 drops eucalyptus + 5 drops tea tree + 3 drops lemon
Multipurpose Cleaning Spray (hard surfaces, bathroom/kitchen): 7 parts water + 1 part vinegar + 10 drops eucalyptus + 10 drops peppermint + 10 drops favorite citrus (lime?)
Soothing After-Sun Spray: 1/2 cup Witch Hazel + 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel + 10 drops peppermint + 10 drops lavender (This awesome idea is from: The Prairie Homestead)
Doggie-Deodorant Spray: Water + 10 drops bergamot + 3 drops peppermint (Cover the dog’s eyes/face!)
Basic Bug Spray: 4 parts water + 3 parts rubbing alcohol/vodka + 20 drops citronella + 15 drops peppermint + 10 drops tea tree + 10 drops grapefruit
Always shake well before use! 🙂
