TGIF, oily friends! To those of you who are new here, WELCOME! To my followers who are joining me again, THANK YOU! I hope by now you are comfortable, or at least getting the hang of, diffusing your essential oils AND that you’ve created the perfect roller for you, a loved one, or both!
Since there are so many aromatic uses for essential oils, today’s post (Part 2) will be dedicated to creating misters and sprays.
What is the difference between misters and sprays?
Misters are smaller 2-4 oz. bottles that I use mostly for linens and fabrics and on-the-go in the car or traveling away from home.
Sprays are larger 8-16 oz. bottles that I use as air fresheners, or for cleaning.
(* Other DIY sprays that will be forthcoming in a separate series dedicated to Thieves are cleaning solutions for regular, light, and heavy degreasing, as well as glass cleaner!)
What kind of containers do I need for my DIY sprays?
It is best to use dark containers made of glass or earthenware, rather than clear or plastic ones. The darker the storage conditions, the longer your oil will maintain its original chemistry and quality. Also, plastic particles can leach into the oil and then into the skin once applied.
Here is what I use in my home, which I buy off of Amazon:
To label my misters and sprays, I also use THIS label maker. Also from Amazon!
HOW TO MISTERS:
- Add approximately 10 drops of oil to a 2 oz. bottle.
- Fill with water.
Here are some simple recommendations, but I encourage you to get creative and concoct your favorite blends of oils 🙂
- Linens > Lavender;
- On-the-Go / Travel > Stress Away
- Outdoor Spray
- After Sun Spray
- Makeup Setting Spray
HOW TO SPRAYS:
- Add approximately 20 drops of oil to a 16 oz. bottle.
- Fill with water.
Here are my recommendations:
- Air freshener > Citrus Fresh or Purification
Thats it! Easy as 1-2!
