|Today, I wanted to make a small room spray that could go in my purse. Especially since I am back to my routine in school. It took me a while to get settled. Sometimes I have to use a public restroom when returning from school on my way home. Somedays they don’t smell all that great. Having a pocket sized spray makes any necessary visits much more tolerable. Pocket sizes sprays are perfect for students or those who are on the road a lot. Let’s go to the kitchen to whip up a room spray or two.
Room sprays are so simple. Deceptively so. We also don’t feature them very often. However, a recent email asking me about making room sprays has inspired me to make and write about room sprays. There is huge benefit to making your own room sprays. They can be any scent you desire! For example, I like to make smaller sizes not only because they travel well but I can also change when I feel like it!
To make a room spray, you only need three ingredients. First, you need a fragrance or essential oil. Please remember to adjust to strong scents like peppermint versus milder ones like vanilla. Second, you need water. Don’t worry. You read that right. You need water. Lastly you need Polysorbate. You can use either Polysorbate 80 or Polysorbate 20. Whatever you have on hand will work just fine.
I chose to measure directly into my bottle for simplified mixing and to create less clean up. However you can mix it outside of your final container if you should so desire. I just made enough to fill each bottle. However, if you want to fill several bottles or large bottles, feel free. If the math seems intimidating, just review Tonya’s notes. They help a lot!
