Today, I’m going to show you how to make a quick relaxing holiday essential oil room spray. Not only is this essential oil blend easy to make, but it can also work as an all-natural air freshener!
Plus it has a lovely Christmas scent and is great for moms (and the whole family) to use to help with self-care and relaxation during the busy holidays. A few spritzes will do wonders!
Uses for This Christmas Essential Oil Room Spray
Before I tell you how to make room spray with essential oils, I want to tell you how you can use it. Here are a few things I do with it:
Spritz Our Tree
The reason I originally dreamed this up is to help our faux tree smell more like a real one! I like this room spray because, in our home, we have an artificial Christmas tree. With a couple of sprays from this holiday essential oil room spray, it helps bring an authentic scent to my fake tree.
I also enjoy giving my bed linens a spray with this oil when I make the bed each morning. It helps make that particular chore more festive, and there’s still a faint, lingering scent that isn’t overpowering by bedtime.
Give as a Gift
Looking for a simple, fun DIY gift? This DIY essential oil room spray is just the item. Make this as a stocking stuffer, coworker gift, or as part of a relaxing gift basket.
You could even make the room spray and combine it with an essential oil diffuser Christmas tree ornament for any of your essential oil loving friends!
Essential oil room sprays are a great way to use essential oils in an easy, safe manner that the whole family can enjoy and benefit from.
Moms are always running around trying to make Christmas perfect for everyone else. We easily forget to take a breather and take some time for ourselves! A ten-minute session of deep breathing after you spray this in the room is just what we all need to keep ourselves calm and relaxed while we orchestrate the most wonderful time of the year!
On a high stress-filled day, I recommend setting your cell phone timer for just 10 minutes. Spritz this relaxing holiday essential oil spray a few times around your room, and practice some deep breathing while your eyes are closed. During that time, dwell on all the things you are thankful for rather than your to-do list that you think will never get done! After this 10 minute break, you’ll feel so refreshed and be ready to tackle the to-do list with more energy and in a better mood!
I also suggest making a few bottles of this relaxing holiday essential oil room spray to give to your mom friends who need a reminder to take a breather as well! 🙂
Which Essential Oils are in This Room Spray?
For this spray, I wanted to create a blend of relaxing essential oils to help calm the mood before the holidays. Frankincense essential oil and Vetiver are two of my favorites as calming essential oils. I also love Ylang Ylang, but it’s not very holiday-like so I didn’t use it in this Christmas essential oil blend. Here are the oils I used to make my essential oil room spray.
Frankincense may help ease tension and is, of course, one of the gifts given to Christ after His birth.
Pine not only helps bring out the scent of our evergreen Christmas trees, but it also may support when feeling exhausted or tense.
Vetiver can be supportive in terms of its relaxing properties – so don’t be surprised if you are ready for a nap after spraying this around your room!
Two other essential oils you could either use instead or in addition to Frankincense, Vetiver, and Pine are Myrrh and Fir Balsam.
Myrrh – another one of Christ’s gifts, Myrrh may help support the immune system
Fir Balsam has the classic scent of real Christmas Trees! It has a lovely relaxing feel about it and its scent will remind you that this is supposed to be a joyful time of year!
When you’ve added the essential oils you want for this holiday blend, then be sure to shake your homemade essential oil room spray bottle well before spraying.
How to Make this Christmas Essential Oil Room Spray
There are two different methods you can use to make this spray. One utilizes salt, while the other uses witch hazel.
You can use whichever you have on hand. These ingredients both serve the same general purpose – they help keep your oils mixed throughout the spray rather than just floating on top of it. That being said, you’ll still need to give the bottle a good shake before spraying.
What You’ll Need:
- 4 oz empty glass spray bottle
- 1 tsp of sea salt or 2 tsp of Witch hazel (I prefer Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel)
- 10 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
- 10 drops of Pine Essential Oil
- 10 drops of Vetiver Essential Oil
- 10 drops of Myrrh Essential Oil (optional)
- 10 drops of Fir Balsam or Spruce Essential Oil (optional)
- Distilled or spring water
Step by Step Instructions
To make your DIY holiday essential oil room spray, get your empty spray bottle and add about 1 teaspoon of sea salt or 2 teaspoons of witch hazel to help mix the oils in the water.
Then add about 10 drops each essential oil.
Swirl the oils in the salt until the salt dissolves (if using). Then fill the rest of the bottle with water.
Generously spray this around your living spaces to bring some extra holiday cheer with pine and frankincense.
Spray away and Merry Christmas!Print
