My husband always tells me that I have a sniffer better than any dog.
What a compliment. (sense the sarcasm)
But it’s true, my nose can catch the wind of any stench a mile away – both a blessing and a curse. What it really means is that smells illicit strong memories for me, and I imagine you might feel the same. This is probably also why I adore essential oils so much. Pure, whole and natural therapy for my senses, and I wanted to find a way to enjoy them more this Holiday Season and share that with my loved ones.
You might have caught on already, but this Holiday Season I’m diving deep into sharing many DIY gift ideas with my blog series called “HANDMADE HOLIDAYS”.
I’m so excited to share with you what I’ve been making for friends, neighbors, teachers, family, etc. and hope you’ll come away with many ideas to make your gift giving even more special this year.
When I had the idea to make Holiday Room Spray complete with free printable bottle labels (grab that printable below!), I knew there were many yummy essential oils that would smell like wonderful Christmas memories . . . peppermint, pine, spruce, cinnamon, orange, etc. I wanted to get the blends exactly right, which is why I begged my friends over at Rocky Mountain Oils to bring on their blending experts to help me create some dream Christmas blends for the room sprays.
And boy did they deliver!!
I love Rocky Mountain Oils for so many reasons, which you may have heard me talk about HERE. They are knowledgeable, helpful, and have incredible prices on their pure oils without making you feel like you need to commit to monthly purchases. Rocky Mountain Oils is NOT an MLM (multi-level-marketing) and they always have FREE shipping and great freebie offers.
Whether you just want to dabble in essential oils with a few purchases, or you want to slowly stock your supply, I 100% believe the best place to purchase is with Rocky Mountain Oils (and you can trust me, I’ve tried many different companies!).
So let’s take a look at the 4 different varieties of blends Rocky Mountain Oils helped me come up with and share with you. These blends also work great in diffusers, by the way (kinda like my 10 Fall diffuser blends)! I will leave a printable “recipe” below so you can easily create your sprays.
4 HOLIDAY ROOM SPRAY BLENDS WITH ESSENTIAL OILS
I think my favorite, favorite blend is SUGAR & SPICE – oh it smells soooo nice!
Whether or not you chop down a real tree, this blend, OH CHRISTMAS TREE, can make any room smell like a Christmas forest!
The blend CANDY CANE smells good enough to eat! You can sub out the wintergreen for peppermint oil, and both smell equally delicious. Half my family is team wintergreen, the other half team peppermint.
WINTER WONDERLAND is a delight to the senses and combines so much that I love about Christmas in a soothing way.
You can’t go wrong with any of these blends for your DIY gift spray. Pick one and order the oils for that, or go all out and experiment with all of the blends!
Considering you can get a whole ton of drops out of these little bottles, this can really be a cost effective gift you can make in bulk. Let’s go over the supplies you will need for the Holiday Room Spray.
SUPPLIES FOR MAKING ESSENTIAL OIL HOLIDAY ROOM SPRAY
- Filtered or distilled water
- Most of what is in the bottle is water, which is another reason this is very cost effective.
- Witch Hazel (non-scented)
- Witch Hazel acts as an emulsifier and helps distribute the oils in the water evenly, so you get an even smell with each spray. I still like to give my bottle a shake before I spray. You can also use rubbing alcohol or salt, but I much prefer the results of the Witch Hazel.
- Essential Oils of choice
- I have detailed how many drops you need for each bottle below.
- Glass Spray Bottle
- You could essentially make a very large bottle of room spray, but for gifting purposes these 2 oz. bottles from Amazon are perfect.
- Avery Labels product number 4224
- These are the exact labels I used for my bottles, and the labels I designed my printables to fit perfectly. Any other small rectangle label could work if you adapt the downloadable design, but for perfect results on my printables, I highly recommend purchasing these dissolvable Avery Labels.
HOW TO MAKE HOLIDAY ROOM SPRAY
Making the Holiday room spray is easy enough for the whole family to get involved, however you do have to be careful they do not get the essential oils directly on their skin as it may be too strong without being diluted.
First, fill your 2 ounce glass bottle up with filtered water about 3/4ths of the way full.
Next, add 1 teaspoon of Witch Hazel.
Add the recommended drops of essential oils, carefully counting each drop.
Securely twist on the lid and give the bottle a good shake and a test spray.
