3 Christmas Scented Room Spray Recipes

With the holiday season upon us, it’s time to get in the spirit. Nothing brings a sense of coziness like the smells of Christmas: cinnamon, pine, peppermint, orange, and wintergreen, to name a few. A fun way to bring the smell of the holidays into your home is with these easy DIY room sprays.

Resist the temptation to buy pretty commercial made air fresheners. They often contain phthalates and many other hazardous chemicals such as benzene, formaldehyde, propellants, and solvents. These chemicals are easily inhaled and absorbed by the skin–yuck!

Studies have shown long-term exposure to these chemicals can cause damage to the lungs, liver, kidneys, and central nervous system.  Although most air fresheners contain small amounts of these chemicals, over time, low-dose exposure causes the same health hazards as a higher dose.  No thank you!

The good news is, with a few essential oils and other easy to find, safe ingredients, you can make your own custom festive room spray in less than five minutes.

1. Candy Cane

16 oz. spray bottle*
8 oz. distilled water
2 oz. vodka or gin
30 drops Plant Therapy Candy Cane Holiday Blend

or for a DIY version:

30 drops peppermint essential oil
15 drops wintergreen essential oil

*I like to use an ultra-fine mist spray bottle for air fresheners, like this one. It evenly distributes its contents without leaving drops of water everywhere.

2. Christmas Tree

16 oz. spray bottle
8 oz. distilled water
2 oz. vodka or gin
14 drops cinnamon essential oil
14 drops orange essential oil
20 drops pine scots essential oil

3. Comfy Sweater

16 oz. spray bottle
8 oz. distilled water
2 oz. vodka or gin
25 drops eucalyptus essential oil
15 drops juniper berry essential oil
10 drops sage essential oil

Directions

For all of the above recipes, simply pour all of the ingredients into your spray bottle and shake vigorously. Shake again each time before use.

In addition to smelling great, essential oil based air fresheners give you the same benefits as diffusing essential oils.
