I absolutely adore essential oils. I love the subtle scent that can fill a room, and I love that the scent really can improve my mood!
To me, using the right blend of essential oils lifts my mood and helps me focus, push and develop my productivity just a little bit further throughout the day.
While I don’t claim to be an aromatherapy expert, I have found that not only diffusing essential oils but also making a simple homemade room spray makes a room not only smell amazing but also feel good.
I’ve loved developing my own room sprays, I thought I would share this recipe with you all! This homemade room spray is great to use in a spot where you are not able to put a diffuser, but still want the benefits of having an essential oil room spray.
Essential Oil Room Spray Tips
Make sure to use a glass bottle. Some essential oils are very strong and may wear the plastic material down.
Alcohol is an essential component. Because the only other ingredients are essential oils and water, we need something to make the oil and water mix. Even though we use alcohol to help the mixture, it’s still necessary to shake the spray before each use.
Choose any essential oils you want! Below, I share a recipe for my favorite essential oil blend, but you can mix and match (or use one single essential oil) to get a scent you absolutely adore.
The essential oils I chose to use are Jasmine and Orange, not only because of the wonderful smell, but because of the benefits shared by NOW Foods.

fantastic, simple, effective recipe I have been using for years now. I use 70% because I have it right there on hand, does the same trick, with perhaps a bit more ‘sterilizing/disinfecting’ power. Much love — kozy
Can I use rubbing alcohol for the room spray?
I haven’t tried it that way, but you could give it a try and let me know how it turns out 🙂
Hi, I’ve a air fryer for my big room, Is it possible to use along?

Hi how long once made up can you keep the room sprays please
Hi Jennifer! This is a great question that I am not sure of the answer to. That being said, this is a great resource for understanding the shelf life of essential oil. https://www.healthline.com/health/do-essential-oils-expire#average-shelf-life I hope this helps!!
I love NOW Foods essential oils! Totally going to make a room spray now. Thank you for the how-to!
Of course, Nicole! What oils are your fav?!
