DIY Room Spray Recipes Made With Essential Oils

DIY Room Spray Recipes Made With Essential Oils

Ditch the chemical laden , store bought room and linen sprays and make your own DIY Room spray with essential oils.

If you have been following me for any length of time, you likely know that several years ago I made a conscious decision to start replacing the toxic chemical laden products in my home with healthier and more natural versions.

In many cases , I make my own and while it is a part of my business selling ready made products, I believe everyone should have the option of making their own products as well.  Affordability can be an issue when it comes to buying healthier , more natural products but you can easily make your own with quality, budget friendly essential oils and some staple ingredients that you can buy off of Amazon.

DISCLAIMER:: This website utilizes the use of affiliate links. All this means is that if you click on a link and make a purchase, I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.

These DIY Essential Oil Room Sprays, can also be used as a Linen Spray to freshen up your sheets, as well as add a antibacterial and antimicrobial benefit. ( Depending on the essential oils chosen.)

I will share with you some of my favorite essential oil recipes and essential oil blends that you can use to make your own diy linen spray.

Many people have been asking me to share my recipes over on TIKTOK and I have also heard that people need a more affordable option than the MLM Option that I have been using for years. And while I do believe they are some of the best quality oils, they are not within everyone’s budget . 

I have also heard you when you said you wanted a quality option that did not require you to be on a monthly autoship! I get it! 

Contrary to popular belief, there is more than 1 great essential oil company, but I definitely have my top 5 and will be doing some side by side and price comparisons very soon.

I recommend have a few different sized amber glass bottles. 4 oz bottles are great for travel and small gifts, 8 oz are great sizes for bathrooms and the 16 oz bottles are especially great for the Linen Spray , as you will find you go through more refreshing your furniture and linens.


How much essential oil should I add to room spray?

My general room of thumb is 1/4  witch hazel to water ratio.  And a really easy way to measure for those who do not have a scale is to use measuring cups. There are 8 oz in a cup of liquid, so you would be able to make an 8 oz spray or two 4 oz bottles.  Double the recipe to fill your 16 oz bottle.

My recommendation for the essential oils is to use approximately 30 drops EO for a 4 oz room spray.

(Note: Witch hazel helps the oil and water combine and will help the scent linger for a longer period of time.)

I also add a drop or two  of liquid castile soap to act as an extra binder and emulsifier.

We use amber glass bottles for a few reasons, first to protect the essential oils from degrading through light , as well as to make sure that essential oils aren’t eating the plastic, there are no leached chemicals from plastic and glass bottles can be recycled over and over again!


Essential Oil Room Spray Recipe

  • 1/4 cup witch hazel
  • 3/4 cup distilled or Kangen water
  • drop or 2 plain Liquid Castile Soap
  • 40-60 drops essential oil ( based on personal preference)


Mix together all of your liquids and then add essential oils and stir with a non metal spoon or whisk. I will often just make a batch of plain room and linen spray base and add essential oils to the bottle and give it a little shake. This way I can make several different scents.  

This will fill two 4 oz bottles, so I would put 20 -30 drops of essential oil per bottle.


  • Mint Rain – Reminiscent of a fresh spring rain storm.  This  is a great choice for Linen Sprays!
  • Immunity Blend
  • Fearless – When we conquer our fears we can truly accomplish anything! Fearless is a blend to inspire confidence and overcome obstacles in your way.  
  • Dreamer – This is the perfect bedtime blend! My husband has suddenly started remember his dreams.
  • Courage – This is Revive’s version of Young Living Valor. 
  • Concentrate – Revive’s version of Doterra In Tune 
  • Calm – This oil is a MUST HAVE and is Revive’s version of Deterra Serenity.
  • Bright Future – Revive Version of Young Living Envision ( This is a favorite of mine from both companies! ) 
  • Apple Orchard – This is a great scent for the kitchen and makes a great house warming gift!
  • Allergy Relief – A blend of essential oils to aide in the relief of allergy symptoms. 
  • Vanilla Absolute – This is a great scent on it’s own but add it almost any other oil for a delicate, sweet lift.
  • Certified Peppermint and Winter Cocoa combined smell just like a Peppermint Patty!
  • Palo Santo , American Clary Sage & Kashmiri Lavender are all great scents for space cleansing. 
  • Ruby Red Grapefruit – Such an energizing scent! Great in the kitchen or office. I also like to spritz in garbage cans.
  • Iced Coffee – mix this with Vanilla to get a yummy iced vanilla coffee that will remind you of your favorite Starbucks drink! 

I honestly could go on and on because the variety of oils available at Revive Essential Oils truly is unmatched! You can save even further by choosing a starter kit .

You can also save by building your own kit and choosing the exact oils that you want.  USE CODE JENNIFERDAWN TO SAVE ON YOUR ENTIRE ORDER! 

With Revive you can order as little or as much as you want , no monthly autoships and they are less expensive because they are not having to pay on out tiered levels like an MLM. They use the same 3rd party testing that has been used by all of the bigger, more commonly known essential oil companies.  They also carry many of the other supplies you would need to make your own DIY Products. ( And several version of many well known higher priced blends) I have to take a minute to shout out their Version of Young Living’s Abundance Essential Oil.  


Bring your DIY to a whole new level with professional looking labeling. Etsy has a number of different templates you can choose from and they are big time savers if you do not want to spend a ton of time designing a label.  These labels are a great idea especially if you plan on giving these out as gifts or selling. 

Why Epsom Salt Baths Are Good For You

Why Epsom Salt Baths Are Good For You

Did you know that regularly taking Epsom salt baths can provide you with a multitude of health benefits? Keep reading to learn why epsom salt baths are good for you.

Extracted from the dried and powdered magnesium sulphate crystals found in the Dead Sea, Epsom salt has been used for centuries. It was first discovered in Magnesia, Greece and later established itself near and around the town of Epsom in Surrey, England.

Epsom salt is something I’ve fallen back on many times to soothe the pains of everyday life. Epsom salt baths have been my go-to for those times when I am suffering from Fibromyalgia pain and inflammation or just want to relax my tired, achy muscles. I also want it noted that these SMELL AMAZING! For real! This was the ultimate self care experience.

Epsom salt is also known as magnesium sulfate. It’s a chemical compound made up of magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen.

Epsom Salt Health Benefits

  • Detoxifies

  • Relives Inflammation

  • Stress Relief

  • Healthy Skin

  • Good Bone Health

  • Reduces Foot Odor

  • Helps remove splinters

  • Healthy nerve function

Most of the reported benefits of Epsom salt are attributed to its magnesium, a mineral that a lot of people do not get enough of. The magnesium in Epsom salt is known to be able to help regulate the electrical signals our nervous system relies on. It can also help the body to use calcium effectively, which helps to conduct these electrical signals.

Are epsom salt baths good for varicose veins?

Epsom salt may help improve the blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and decrease varicose vein size. It can improve magnesium deficiencies in the body which are important for tissue development.

How epsom salts help muscles

Epsom salt contains magnesium and may help the body get rid of toxins responsible for exacerbating inflammation while also reducing swelling, stiffness, and pain.

Can you use epsom salts when pregnant?

Pregnant women have been using Epsom Salts for ages to combat swollen feet, hemorroids and to simply relax.


How often Can I Use Epsom Salts?

The recommended usage is 2-3 times per week.

Epsom Salt Cleanse

Through reverse osmosis, soaking in an epsom salt bath will allow your body to rid itself of excess fluids and release heavy metals that have been absorbed by the body. Pour 2 cups of your favorite Epsom Salts , I use Dr. Teals Cannabis Sativa Hemp Seed Oil Epsom Salts. They are moisturizing and smell great! The added essential oils provide that level of aromatherapy that helps you easily relax and soothe your body, mind and spirit. Use this therapeutic epsom salt to remove swelling and ease inflammation.

Celery Juice Benefits & How To Make Celery Juice Without A Juicer

Celery Juice Benefits & How To Make Celery Juice Without A Juicer

For most of us, celery juice is one of those things that we have heard about but never actually tried. The truth is that it’s a great addition to your daily routine and it can help you in a number of different ways. In this post I’ll discuss the benefits of celery juice, how to make celery juice without a juicer, what’s in celery juice, and why you should drink it!

Is Celery Juice Good For Weight Loss?

Celery juice is a popular drink that has been known to help with a variety of different ailments, including weight loss.

Celery has been used as a natural diuretic for centuries. That means that it helps to flush out your system and reduce bloating and water retention. It is also full of healthy fiber and can help to keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer.

DISCLAIMER:  None of the information contained on this website is a substitute for professional medical advice. It is purely for informational purposes and is based on my own personal experiences. I am also an independent distributor for many of the products contained within the post. But I am also a consumer of the products. 

What Are The Benefits Of Celery Juice

Celery juice is a very healthy drink that has been used as a healing tonic for centuries. In recent years, it has been gaining popularity as a natural cure for many ailments. Some of the benefits of celery juice are:

  • Many nutrients
  • Improves digestion
  • Alkalizes
  • Fights infections
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Heals your gut
  • Weight loss
  • Improved focus
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Healthier , glowing Skin

Celery juice has a negative charge that makes it capable of attracting positively charged toxins and taking them out of the body. It also has a high alkalinity that promotes the release of the body’s natural enzymes, which are essential for proper digestion, nutrient absorption, and cellular repair. Celery also contains flavonoids which are powerful antioxidants

Celery is a great source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, and Magnesium. The vitamin K helps with blood clotting, the vitamin A helps your eyes adjust to darkness, the vitamin B6 helps with utilization of proteins and carbs, the magnesium helps with relaxation

How To Make Celery Juice Without A Juicer

If you do not have a juice there are a few ways you can still enjoy the benefits of celery juice. Option 1 is to locate a juice bar and buy fresh celery juice. However, this can get very costly and celery juice should be consumed the same day it is made or else it oxidizes.  Option 2 is to blend celery juice with a small amount of water in a blender and then strain with some cheesecloth or a nut milk bag. Option 3 which is my chosen method, is to purchase freeze dried celery powder and make a glass of it each morning. 

Celery Juice VS Celery Powder

There is a big debate whether celery powder provide the same benefits as drinking fresh raw juice. As someone who has tried, all of the options mentioned in this post, I will say that I do not believe that anything , whether it be celery or another fruit or vegetable, is better than the organic fresh version, this is a great alternative and freeze drying will actually retain most of the benefits of the plant.  I also choose to mix my celery powder with alkaline water, which in my opinion makes juice just as good as the raw plant. 

Why Celery Juice In The Morning?

Drinking celery juice in the morning is a great way to get an extra boost of vitamins and minerals. The celery contains a powerful mix of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, which can help to fight off harmful free radicals in the body. It also helps to stimulate the digestive system and the metabolism. In the morning, it’s a great way to give your body a boost of energy and increase your metabolic rate.

Why Celery Juice On An Empty Stomach?

Celery juice is an excellent way to detoxify your body. Celery is loaded with fiber, minerals, and vitamins. It contains no fat or cholesterol and can be consumed by people of all ages. Drinking celery juice on an empty stomach is the best because it will help you get rid of toxins in your body while providing your body with a fresh supply of nutrients. It is also a great way to alkalize your body first thing in the morning. 

Celery Juice & Epstein Barr

Celery Juice is a natural remedy that can be used to help with many different health problems, including Epstein Barr, acid reflux, gastritis, and skin conditions. It is a natural diuretic that can help flush out your kidneys and bladder. It also helps clean up the blood by removing toxic substances from the body and can help with mental health issues, including anxiety. Disease begins in the gut and there is a gut brain connection, meaning that if your gut is out of whack, chances are your brain is on some level as well.  Many people have found that when they have taken care of their gut health , anxiety and depression has been alleviated. 

There are so many health benefits to drinking celery juice and the best part is, you can make it at home! You will be surprised at how easy it is to make a part of your daily routine.

Will Keto Coffee Make Me Lose Weight?

Will Keto Coffee Make Me Lose Weight?

This question is on the mind’s of many people looking to drop a few pounds of extra weight, Will keto coffee make me lose weight? While many people see success from the use of this fat burning coffee, I like to be upfront with people and tell you right from the gate. If your plan is to wash down half a bag of Oreos and try to cancel it out, well I hate to burst your bubble, but that is not how this works.

Keto coffee is dense in healthy fats and will help suppress your appetite. It’s purpose is to help bring your body in to a state of ketosis . where the fatty acids are broken into ketone bodies.

Keto Coffee Benefits

  • Fights hunger cravings
  • Instant energy
  • Improved brain function
    Fat loss
  • Ketone creation
  • Better focus
  • Restores vital protein in body

DISCLAIMER:  None of the information contained on this website is a substitute for professional medical advice. It is purely for informational purposes and is based on my own personal experiences. I am also an independent distributor for many of the products contained within the post. But I am also a consumer of the products. 

How Much Keto Coffee Can I Drink?

It is recommended not to exceed 1-2 cups per day. Just like regular coffee, too much caffeine is not  beneficial to your health. Coffee is highly acidic and drinking too much will raise the acidity levels in your body, not to mention the fact that people who consume too much caffeine suffer from high blood pressure and anxiety. The goal is to become healthier, not create additional health woes.

Drinking keto coffee, working to make your body more alkaline and working on your gut health will eliminate the need for a cup of coffee every couple of hours!

When To Drink Keto Coffee

It is best to drink keto coffee on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. What I like to do is start my morning off with celery juice powder (same benefits, less mess, time & hassle)  and then spend 30 minutes or so meditating and journaling  and follow it up with a hot keto coffee or my energizing keto coffee breakfast smoothie ( recipe below)
