These Room Sprays are so much fun to make and they make your house smell yummy! This is a super simple and fast item to make. It just takes a few minutes, (I think it takes longer to choose a fragrance).

Items to Collect:
Water
5 ml Fragrance or Essential Oil of choice
5 ml Polysorbate 80 (polysorbate 20 will work as well)
Containers of choice

I like to use the Trigger Spray Bottles, which is a 12 oz. size, however any bottle with a spray head will work.

Using the 12 oz Trigger Spray Bottle add Polysorbate 80 and fragrance; shake or swirl the container to mix these items together, this will only fill the very bottom of the container (very small amount). Then add warm water until container is filled, leave a little extra headspace for the trigger mechanism. Spray lightly on most fabrics or carpets. Do not spray on hard surfaces where it can become slippery. Another great idea is to spray on to a hand towel or paper towel then place behind a couch. That’s it! How simple is that?

    This may be a silly question, but if it’s a water based product, would a preservative be needed?

      Carrie,

      You can certainly use a preservative. I don’t generally do so because this is not a product which carries much food.
      I think of eating a fragrance oil or essential oil and I don’t believe either can be life sustaining. Some are actually
      considered to be anti-bacterial on their own.

      So, if you choose to use one then go ahead. We have no concerns about it. If you opt not to add one then I think the
      room spray will be just fine.

    Hi,
    If I wanted to include a preservative in this room spray, would Optiphen be a good choice? If not, what would you suggest?
    Thanks!
