Posted by Jennifer Lane on

One of the easiest ways to use essential oils every day is by using homemade essential oil sprays. Sprays are a simple and fun way to incorporate essential oils into your routine.  If you make them up in advance, they will be readily available when you need them.

Whether you are a DIYer or not, making essential oil sprays is super simple.  In fact, my nine year old son can even make them by himself.  You only need a few items and the process takes only a few minutes.

Epsom salt will help the oil mix with water and prevents oil from sticking to the bottle and spray tube.  This step could be omitted if desired. 

Filtered or distilled water is best to prevent contamination or spoilage of your essential oil sprays from impurities found in tap water.  Alternatively, you can boil tap water, let it cool and then use that water for your sprays, if that is all that is available.
