DIY room fragrance spray

This homemade room fragrance spray is cheap, chemical free, easy to make and works a treat. I've been relying heavily on it to mask odours, especially after yucky nappy changes.
You'll need:

100ml distilled water*
Essential oil
100ml spray bottle
Funnel
Ribbons (optional, for decorating)
Method:

1.  Add 15-20 drops of good quality essential oil to spray bottle. I used a calming sleep assisting blend of citrus peel and lemon in mine.

2. Using funnel, add distilled water to bottle.

3. Shake well and spray as needed.

*The easiest way to get distilled water is simply to collect rainwater in a clean container and then leaving it in container for a couple of days for the minerals to dissipate.

I make my own spray sometimes too! Although, we don't get too much rain here in SoCal so I typically just use drinking water... :(

I never knew distilled water was so easy to obtain. I thought it had to do with boiling water and condensation. You always know all the quick and easy tricks out there ;-)

I always think it's a bit of a waste to buy those spray fragrances when we can make them ourselves and pick our own scents, thanks for reminding me of that Trishie :) I shall not be lazy when it's so easy!

Sounds good. I used to love scented candles but soon realised they really upset one of my cats. so had to give them away to my friends. The candles, lol, not the cats. ;-)

She was really bad with them. She is so lovely and calm and got a great nature. But when I burned the candles she would hiss, spit and get quite agressive. It took us a few days to figure it out! So no more scented candles for us. And she's more relaxed and happy now! :-)

This is a great idea. Now I know what to make of our left over essential oils. Glad I didn't throw them away.
