Homemade Air Freshener Spray

Who needs to spend boo-koo $$ on all those fancy air sprays when you can make your own? And when you make your own, you can make it in just the perfect fragrance for your home, your family & your mood.

Here is a basic recipe & a collection of of different fragrance recipes for you to choose from. I've had his written down for a long time, if I knew who to credit, I would.

~~Once you have gotten a 'smallish' spray bottle, about 8-10 oz. (at Hobby Lobby, Menard's or some other craft or hardware store), wash it out & fill it w/distilled water.

~~Add 25-30 drops of your favorite essential oil or your favorite combination of oils.

Here are a few great suggestions for you:
  • Country Spice ~ cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, bay

  • Spring Morning ~ lavender, rose, geranium, rosemary, sweet orange

  • Earthy ~ sage, thyme, cedar, patchouli, frankincense

  • Romance ~ vanilla, sandalwood, ylang ylang, jasmine, nerroli, rose

  • Far East ~ patchouli, cedar, sandalwood, lime, coriander

  • Energizing ~ basil, lavender, orange, nutmeg, mint

  • Calming ~ bergamot, geranium, clary sage, chamomile, yarrow

  • Gardener's Paradise ~ lemon, orange, basil, thyme


  1. Where can you get essential oils? Are they labeled as such?

  2. Julie ~ You can find essential oils at any health food store & they are labeled as such, usually in their own area somewhere around the health & beauty aids section. The most popular brands are Aura Cacia & Amrita; both great brands.

    And REMEMBER...all you need are DROPS!

  3. My favorite scent is romance. I love the smell of vanilla and rose.

  4. I love the idea of homemade fragrance! I especially like the Earthy combination - can't wait to try it out.
