Make It: DIY Refreshing Room Spray

by on Jan 16, 2017

Currently I’m living in a two bedroom apartment with my fiancé, one large dog, and one cat. It’s not a spacious place by any means, but I think it’s just the right size for the four of us. The only time our pad feels too small is right about now: half way through the winter. It’s the middle of January, and cabin fever is starting to set in. To offset the restlessness of being indoors, I’m freshening up the joint with a simple, quick room spray.

Make this! Refreshing, all-natural room spray to freshen any space.

Since it’s still snowy outside, I chose some wintry scents to spice up my home. Watch how to make this room spray, or read below for the full tutorial!


Materials needed to make this homemade room spray


How to make pine, vanilla, and cinnamon-scented room sprays!

Fill the spray bottle 3/4ths of the way full with filtered water. Add 20-25 drops of essential oil, then fill almost to the top with witch hazel.


Add a live element to the bottle – like a pine sprig or vanilla bean – that pairs with your essential oil for even stronger, long-lasting scent. Shake, spray, and enjoy!  Room spray = done!

How easy was that? These room spray bottles also make great gifts!

How to mix up your own room spray! Makes for a great gift!

  1. Great idea – I live with a malamute (who doesn’t get baths too often as he doesn’t dry out for days) and need a refreshing air spray quite often. I don’t like the chemical smells of OTC air fresheners, so I’ll try this trick. Thanks!!

  2. So simple – gotta love it. I’m going to make some of this spray – just moved my office to the basement and it’s a bit… dank…
