Never having been there, we have a hard time imagining what heaven will look or smell like, but every so often we come across something so beautiful, something that tastes or smells so good, that we imagine heaven must be like that, all the time. And that’s what say about our favorite essential oil room spray.
Maybe for you it’s the smell of the cookies your grandma made when you were a kid that you call your heavenly scent. I’m sure I’ve referred to many good scents as heavenly over the years, but right now, this is an essential oil room spray recipe I’ve found quite by accident and there’s no other way to describe it but heavenly!
Essential Oil Room Spray Tips
As we covered in our dispersing and diluting essential oil guide, you need to combine essential oils with a solubizing ingredient of some kind. In many cases some alcohol works beautifully and is very easy to incorporate in a room spray recipe.
Creating a nice air freshening room spray with essential oils instead of artificial fragrances is a great way to eliminate toxins from your home. Plus, I just love that you can personalize the scent.
Citrus essential oils are always cheerful, fresh, and light. But when you combine them with a floral scent like magnolia you’re in for a treat. On their own flower-oils can be overpowering. Mixed with the sweetness of a citrus oil, they are simply divine.
You can use this as a personal body spray in addition to a room spray! I’ve spent a lot of time traveling, attending meetings and gatherings, and everywhere I went people commented on my scent and wanted to know what it was. I’ve never considered my self a perfumier or aromachologist… maybe I missed my calling! You decide!
Don’t Have Magnolia Essential Oil?
Try another floral! What are you drawn to? Some people really love the scent of ylang ylang, geranium, or rose. Experiment with pairing your favorite with some citrus oils and see what happens! That’s how I found this blend.
