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.
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!
- Filtered water
- Witch hazel
- Essential oils (I’m using pine, vanilla, and cinnamon leaf)
- Pine sprig, vanilla bean, cinnamon sticks
- 3.2 oz. mist spray bottles
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 about you? How do you cope with the winter blues? Let me know in the comments!
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!!
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…
