I prefer a room spray that’s fresh and light. Unfortunately, many store-bought room sprays overwhelming and heavily scented. Plus they contain ingredients that aren’t beneficial to one’s health. Making your own with a room spray recipe lets you make your personalized fragrances. I was curious how different people make their own aromatic sprays and found some really nice ideas to share with you, along with our original recipe for country primitive home fragrance spray. You can use these are part of your cleaning routine to keep your home smelling fresh.
Room Spray Recipe Roundup:
Prim Room Spray:
2 teaspoons of scented oil (for candle and bath products or essential oils)
Linen base (also called air freshener) Here are a couple stores: Bulk Apothecary, Wellington Fragrance Company
8 oz. amber or colored bottle
Use an old funnel and add the scented oil in to your bottle; now add the air freshener base until the bottle is almost filled. It depends on the size of your bottle as to how much to mix; I use 8 oz bottles so I add 8 oz – 2 teaspoons of base.
The mixture will be cloudy (which is why I put mine in amber colored bottles, so you can’t see). Screw on the pump sprayer, shake well. Add a label with the scent and you are done. Test before you spray on fine furniture, linens, etc. Scent lasts a long time.
We first created this recipes before essential oils became popular. So we didn’t limit ourselves and used fragrance oils used for candle making and other home fragrance products. You can personalize your scent choices to what kinds you and your family prefer. Like the smell of cookie’s baking? Or maybe you love the smell of a woodsy pine. And there’s all types of floral scents, too. Check out these collections I found on Amazon.
