Keeping your home smelling pleasant can be a challenge, particularly if you have children and pets. Add in the fact you’ll be spending more time inside over the coming months and it becomes something of a full-time job. There are thousands of sprays and diffusers out there, but why not make your own naturally scented room spray?
We particularly love the smell of lavender. Gather the following items: a jar with an airtight lid, witch hazel, lavender essential oil, water, a small funnel and a spray bottle.
Begin by pouring one ounce of witch hazel and 10 drops of lavender oil into the jar. Put the lid on tightly and shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds, then add three ounces of water. Shake again for 15 to 20 seconds. Next, place the funnel into the opening of your spray bottle and pour the mixture in. You might need more than one bottle.
Consider making your own labels for the bottle. All you’ll need is pens, markers, paper, glue and scissors. Alternatively, grab a sheet of labels and take to the computer to create something that offers more of a professional touch. Then get spritzing.
