How to Make Essential Oil Air Fresheners

Making these Christmas sprays are simple, here is what you need:

  • 15-20 drops of Essential Oils
  • 1 tablespoon Grain Alcohol (as preservative)
  • Distilled Water
  • 2 oz Glass Spray Bottle

Easy 1-2-3 Step Method

Step 1: Add grain alcohol into a glass spray bottle using a funnel. 

Step 2: Pick one of the Christmas recipes below. Add essential oils from the recipe of choice into the bottle and swirl around with grain alcohol.

Step 3: Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled (or purified) water, leaving a little space at the top for the sprayer. Attach sprayer and shake to mix. Label your spray.

Recipe Tips:

    • It is best to let your spray "marinate" for about a day so the scents have time to mingle. Be sure to shake spray before using each time.
    • Distilled or filtered water is preferred to keep the integrity of your spray mixture pure (impurities in tap water could alter your spray).
