Insanely Easy Room/Aromatherapy Spray

Want to know how to make a super easy yet extremely fragrant room freshener/aromatherapy spray with just two ingredients? Keep reading!

For this DIY you will need:

  • An empty spray bottle
  • Some H2O
  • An essential oil of your choice (I like peppermint, lavender, or sweet orange)

How to:

All you have to do is fill an empty spray bottle ¾ of the way up with water and then add at least 20 drops of oil, and shake vigorously!


I use empty spray bottles left over from toner or other beauty products – just make sure to clean it out with warm water beforehand to make sure any left other product or scent does not remain.

I use the Aura Cacia brand of essential oils because the quality is great and they are widely available, including your neighborhood grocery stores. Peppermint oil has an energizing effect, lavender relaxes you, and sweet orange just smells amazing.  It is always fun to experiment with unusual scents as well!

This room spray is essentially free if you have any old spray bottles and have some essential oil around.


A small bottle of essential oil goes a long way and has multiple uses, for example rubbing some peppermint oil on your temples helps with headaches, so it’s a handy thing to have around the house in either case. I like to add additional drops into my spray, and it still lasts me for around 5-6 bottles of room spray so it’s a lot more cost effective than buying a bottle from the store. It can also be used as an air freshener, ie in your kitchen or bathroom, or use it for aromatherapy by spraying it on your pillow or entire room if you’re trying to relax. I like to spray this before bedtime, it really does make a difference!

I hope you give this easy DIY a try!
