Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and there are lots of things that need to be done. Pie needs to be baked, turkeys need to be brined and one last trip needs to be run to the grocery store.  Whew. That is quite the To-do list . Before we all get ready for our Thanksgiving feasts, I wanted to shared a very exciting new product with you! It is our Spray Clear Emulsifier.

This product lets you make clear sprays. Today, I wanted to share making a room spray. I will be using Lemon Sugar Fragrance Oil because I want a fresh, clean scent in my home. Andee has begged me to make her one with Christmas Tree Fragrance Oil. She wants her house to smell like fresh cut trees! I might have to trade a  room spray (or two) for one of her fabulous pies!

Weigh the fragrance oil and Spray Clear Emulsifier into a container. Mix well and allow to sit for 5-15 minutes. Add room temperature water. (Hot water is more likely to create a cloudy spray.) Mix well. The product will be cloudy for a minute or two but it will clear out momentarily. If it does not clear out quickly, allow the mixture to sit for several days. The cloudy material will either sink to the bottom or rise to the surface. Decant the clear material and put into your spray bottle. Label and spritz!

    Hi, I was wondering about the exact amounts used. I dont see above where its stated how much fragrance or essential oil to use with the: SPRAY CLEAR EMULSIFIER

    Three questions:
    Is this a 50/50 mix?

    also, I see yo place just warm water into the room spray. I am used to using witch Hazel and alcohol in my room spray AND preservative. Are you saying with your room spray clear emulsifier that nothing else is needed but water?

    Last question, can this product be used in any other application other than room sprays? examples please 🙂

    I am very excited about this product and I intend to have great fun with it.
    Thanks so very much, Artisan Shelly

      Shelly,

      This project uses 1% fragrance oil, 2% Spray Clear Emulsifier and 97% water.

      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.

      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.

      This product can be used to make perfumes, colognes and other scented products.

      Best,
      Taylor

    Bro I want to produce and supply water base room freshener so how can I mix synthetic fragrance oil with water.
    Please suggest me a cheaper way to make it.

      Fragrances oils and water by nature do not mix. You will need some type of emulsifier to bond the two together. You can use our Spray Clear Emulsifier, Polysorbate 20 or Polysorbate 80 to make a water based room freshener. The overall cost is going to be low since the 97% of your formula is water. The most expensive item will be your container.

      We have found that 1% fragrance, 2% Spray Clear Emulsifier and 97% Water works best for all uses. Perfumes, room sprays, car fresheners, linen sprays and body mists.

    a couple of questions:
    Would you also suggest this for linen spray?–does it “dry” enough or does it make the linens too damp? Also, is it a small enough amount of oil that it won’t leave a residue where it “lands” whether it be sheets or wood flooring, etc.

    I would assume it’s ok to use any fragrance oil, correct? What about essential oils?

      Essential oils and fragrance oils are both suitable for this type of mixture. Heavy applications can make the floor and sheets wet. A light misting is perfect for adding scent to sheets, rooms and even carpet or soft textiles. I would not deliberately spray a hard wood floor or tile. These hard surfaces can be very slippery until they dry. In Utah, a very arid desert, the water base of this mixture dries very quickly. If your home is humid or your whole area is humid then I would spray paper towels and stash them in empty vases or behind furniture.

      Best!

    Thanks dear andee for your valuable reply.
    I have used the polysorbate 20 and 80 for making room freshener. While using these the final product become cloudy/milky.
    Please suggest me how can I get ride on this type of hazyness in my final product. Is there any alternate way to make it clear or any other chemical mix too in it?

      Unfortunately, the very nature of the Polysorbate emulsifiers means you will get a cloudy emulsion. A product that looks cloudy or milky. The Spray Clear Emulsifier is the clear alternative to Polysorbate. I hope this helps!

    Are you saying that polysorbate is different then the spray clear emulsifier you are talking about ? Where would I purchase it?
    If it is the same , what is the difference between polysorbate 20 & 80.

      Barbara,

      Yes, the Spray Clear Emulsifier is a different product than the polysorbates. While we like the polysorbates for other projects it doesn’t result in a clear room spray. This was discouraging for us.

      We offer the Spray Clear Emulsifier in our catalog. It is an additive so it is listed in the Additives section. A link is in the blog above.

      Cheers!

      Lynn,

      The Spray Clear Emulsifier is intended to be used with water and either fragrance or essential oils. We have not tested it with Cyclomethicone. What is it you have in mind?

        I was wondering if I could use it like I would use fragrance oil modifier to make a clear dry oil spray with cyclomethicone. I was wondering if the spray clear emulsifier and cyclomethicone are compatible.

          No. The Cyclomethicone and Spray Clear are not compatible. Spray Clear treats Cyclomethicone as an oil to be bonded to water. I hope this helps!

          Spray Clear Emulsifier does not help an compatible fragrance mix into Cyclomethicone. They will remain incompatible.
          I am sorry. I wish it could work.

    Can this be use for a facial toner? Well, really my question is can this be use in any kind of water based product that is use for the face too? I’m trying to make a few different toners and also some face spritz for the summer.
    thank you so much,

      Denise,

      I think this would work fine in a face spritz. I would reduce the fragrance usage since the face can be so sensitive to scents.

      I hope this helps!

      Generally about 1 year. If you have issues with your spray then consider what is growing inside the bottle.

    I am making 10 ml perfume bottles and have been using the Everclear vodka, distilled water and a carrier oil along with a fragrance
    Question I have ordered the spray clear emulsifier how would I incorporate that into the recipe to shorten the curing time for the perfume or do I leave the vodka out ?
    Help please thank you Julie

      Julie,

      Generally we don’t use all of these carriers at the same time. Maybe you are making some in vodka, some with water and some with an oil. Any way you choose to make the perfumes try adding equal amounts of the emulsifier and the fragrance oil. Most often we never go above 5% fragrance oil. If we do, it is a real perfume product and not something to be used more than a single drop.

      Does that help?

          Julie,

          Whoops! Sorry to confuse you. 5% fragrance, 5% spray clear, 90% water. If you are using the roller bottle I would use an oil like jojoba oil or Coconut Oil Fractions. You needs something with a bit more viscosity than water in a roller ball. Make sure the fragrance oil can be used in a perfume at 5%, not all fragrance oils can. When I make a lotion it is generally 0.8% fragrance for a strong scent. For a perfume to apply to wrists, neck and behind the ears I would probably start with 2% fragrance load. Test. Make notes. Then try something higher or lower in fragrance concentration.

      Yes it would. Most perfumes are higher rates of fragrance oil but lower rates of usage (such as a body spray) can also work.

        Is this product (Spray Clear Emulsifier) compatible with other water-based ingredients such as witch hazel, aloe, hydrosols?

        • Tina

          Yes, it is. I like the Spray Clear a lot. Not every fragrance I have tried will clear but most do. And, Kim, one more thing to consider – the carriers you have mentioned are perfect skin care products on their own. I would not choose to use Spray Clear on the skin. I would dilute witch hazel or hydrosols to use on the face. Aloe juice is non-irritating for all skin types that don’t have an allergy to aloe. If you are using essential oils and/or wish to use on the face I would consider emulsifying the essential oils in alcohol then adding to a water-like carrier. Does that help?
