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.

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)
DO NOT USE RUBBING ALCOHOL to make sprays!
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.
