DIY Air Freshener Spray with Christmas Essential Oils
What You’ll Need:
- 4 oz glass spray bottle – be sure to get glass as some of these essential oils will corrode a plastic container
- Witch hazel (I prefer Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel)
- Fractionated coconut oil
- Christmas essential oils – I’ll list each below as I show you the 5 different versions
Grab your empty glass bottle and add 2 tsp. of witch hazel and 1 tsp. fractionated coconut oil to it. The addition of both of these helps the essential oil molecules spread out in the water for an evenly scented spray.
The first Christmas DIY air freshener spray uses an essential oil blend from Rocky Mountain Oils called Peppermint Mocha. It smells just like it sounds – and if you want your house to smell a bit like a minty coffee shop, then this is for you!
Add 10 drops of this oil to the witch hazel and fractionated coconut oil. The fill the rest of the bottle with water. Shake well and give it a spritz!
This second version also uses a blend from Rocky Mountain Oils called Eggnog Latte. There is actually a Fall Holiday Latte Kit that has these latte blends in them if you want to get more than one and save on the bundle.
Add 10 drops of Eggnog Latte to your witch hazel and fractionated coconut oil, then fill the rest with water. When your holiday party attendees are enjoying a cup of eggnog, spritz this around the room to enhance the flavor and sensory experience!
Orange and nutmeg are stronger oils, which is why you want to be sure to use the 6:1:2 ratio for this one so that the orange or nutmeg aren’t overpowering the pine that we want to stand out. After you’ve added the oils to the witch hazel and fractionated coconut oil, top the bottle off with water and you are done!
This next seasonal blend uses Pine and Wintergreen. You’ll want to add 6 drops of pine and just 1 drop of wintergreen. Like the previous blend, wintergreen is more powerful than the pine, and we just want a hint of wintergreen behind the main scent of pine.
Shake up your bottle of witch hazel, fractionated coconut oil, pine & wintergreen essential oils with water and spray this in the room your Christmas tree is in. It will either enhance the authentic scent of a real tree or give your artificial tree a bit of a real pine scent that will put everyone in a great holiday spirit kind of mood.
This last blend uses Pine, Cedarwood, and Frankincense. This is the most woodsy scented of the 5 different blends I shared here today. If you want to picture going on a sleigh ride in the woods on a calm and snowy night, then this is the blend you want to make!
Add 4 drops of pine, cedarwood, and frankincense to your bottle of witch hazel and fractionated coconut oil, top off with water, and you have a winter romantic walk in the woods in a bottle!
Each of these 5 Christmas DIY air freshener sprays with essential oils have a variety of atmospheres where they will enhance a seasonal experience. It is amazing how these holiday and seasonal scents really can boost your mood and set the tone for a joyful Christmas gathering.
Whether you are rocking around the Christmas tree with some eggnog or enjoying a romantic date night without the kids, you’ll find a blend here that will freshen the air and warm your heart. Merry Christmas season to everyone and enjoy the little things this time of year – even things like the aromatherapy these DIY air freshener sprays will bring you!
