You’ve probably gathered by now that I’m obsessed with essential oils. There are so many things that essential oils have replaced in our home that are not only wonderful, but safe. I just made a few citrus room sprays after cleaning the interior of our cars. We actually had a few nice days and so I took the cars to the car wash and then came home to clean the interior of each car. I wiped down everything with Thieves. I used the heavy-duty bottle that I make using about a quarter Thieves and the rest water. (Normally it’s only a capful of Thieves), but since the cars were really dirty from the winter, I used the heavy degreaser one. It smells amazing and everything was clean! Then I used the Thieves mixed with a little vinegar for the windows. It’s the best window cleaner I’ve ever used. But, when you then close the doors tight, the vinegar smell lingers a bit. I noticed it even over the next couple of days. It wasn’t horrible, but I thought why not make a citrus room spray for the car?
I made my own labels using watercolors and Avery Mailing labels
I created a few simple labels for each type of room-spray. With just a few supplies, you can make labels that make them pretty enough to give as a gift. Once you start using room spray at home and in your car, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. Unlike room and car fresheners that you buy, these are 100% safe!
What I like about using citrus essential oils for things like room sprays is because it’s pretty economical. You need about 30 drops of essential oils in a 2-ounce glass bottle, plus a splash of witch hazel and then top it off with distilled water. Most of the citrus oils are only around $7 per bottle.
Citrus + Rosemary Essential oils
I often use amber spray bottles so you don’t see the oil in the bottle. I asked my niece, Courtney if this bothered her and she said it was actually a good thing, because it reminds people not as familiar with essential oils, to shake it first!Print
