There’s nothing more welcoming than the subtle floral tones of a scented room.
So I like to freshen the smell of my house with a scented room spray.
I make my own using a recipe I’ve had for ages:
Scented Room Spray
1 cup distilled water,
2 tablespoons Vodka,
15 – 20 drops of essential oil (depending on the oil).
Put all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake gently to mix. I also shake before use.
Add the pretty label to an old perfume bottle and it is pretty enough to leave out on display all the time.
For this batch I used a pre mixed oil made by a local aromatherapist.
The one I used today was called Zesty. . . it’s my favourite.
Zesty is full of fresh and lively citrus aromas. . . grapefruit to uplift, lemon to stimulate, lemongrass to refresh, mandarin to inspire and the energizing zip of lime.
The room spray has given my house an all over fresh citrusy smell, which is perfect for summer.
We have two house dogs, a poodle and a Bichon Frise, so I’m always conscious of any doggy smells. A quick spritz of the citrusy room spray before visitors arrive vanishes any doggy odours every time.
Don’t forget to spray your linen cupboard too!
