8 Simple Room Spray Recipes To Make For Summer

I love summer time...the warm weather, water activities, outdoor BBQs and summer getaways! These room spray recipes are inspired by all the FUN times that summer brings. Use them to bring summer joy to your rooms and indoor spaces.

Room sprays can transform an indoor space by freshening the aroma and clearing out stale air. Plus, smelling essential oils is a fabulous way to gain the therapeutic effects that aromatherapy offers.

Favorite Essential Oils For Summer

For summertime, citrus and floral essential oils are my favorite oils to choose from. I enjoy mint and woodsy oils too, no matter the time of year. Here are my top picks for summer:

  • Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • Lime Essential Oil (Citrus aurantifolia)
  • Tangerine Essential Oil (Citrus reticulata)
  • Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limon)
  • Cypress Essential Oil (Cupressus sempervirens)
  • Grapefruit Essential Oil (Citrus paradisi)
  • Geranium Essential Oil (Pelargonium graveolens)
  • Chamomile Essential Oil (Anthemis nobilis)
  • Orange Essential Oil (Citrus sinensis)
  • Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha piperita)
  • Spearmint Essential Oil (Mentha spicata)
  • Juniper Berry Essential Oil (Juniperus communis)

How To Make Room Spray With Essential Oils

For room spray recipes, I like to use a water base...it is simple and easy. Distilled or filtered water is best to use because tap water may contain contaminants you do not want in your room freshener. It is important to note that essential oils and water do not mix. Be sure to shake the bottle before each use.

Step 1: Add essential oils into a 2 oz glass spray bottle, I like to use about 15-20 drops total for this size bottle. You can use a single essential oil, a premade oil blend or try one of our summer blend recipes below.

Step 2: Fill rest of bottle with distilled water, leaving space at top for sprayer. It takes about 1/4 cup of water to fill.

Step 3: Shake well and label bottle with contents and date made. To use, shake up and spray in desired room. Best if spray is used within one month for freshness.
