Essential oil room sprays for fragrance, mood and immunity
November 24, 2017
Essential oils are derived only from plants. They can hearten the soul, make a room smell fabulous, set a mood, and even boost your immunity. As cold weather is here and our houses are all closed up, room sprays become even more used. You can use the dried plants for similar effect, but a lot less intense fragrance.
For immunity, there are several essential oils that are popular to boost your body. Tea tree, eucalyptus, lemon, peppermint, lavender, oregano, rosemary, frankincense, and rosemary are a few popular essential oils for boosting immunity. Try different blends to see what you like the best. I just use a spray bottle that does a nice job of misting, fill it up with distilled water, then add the essential oils. Be sure to shake well each time you use before spritzing the room; essential oils like to sit on top of the water. Some also recommend adding a teaspoon or two of rubbing alcohol to help disperse the oil in the water.
Here is one I like:
14 drops eucalyptus
10 drops lemon
6 drops tea tree
I also really like adding orange to earthy scents. Here is another potential to try:
10 drops frankincense
8 drops rosemary
10 drops orange
One that I just love that smells great and feels calming is:
10 drops eucalyptus
10 drops geranium
10 drops lavender
You can also use this in your closets. Lavender is a great moth deterrent.
A simple combo that packs a big punch that I use in the diffuser:
10 drops clove oil
10 drops orange oil
This one is purely for fragrance.
Make sure you are getting 100% pure essential oils and not fragrance oils. Fragrance oils are chemicals and are not healing oils. There is evidence to suggest they could be cancerous.
You can also make body oils that smell great from essential oils or dried herbs from the garden.
