Ridiculously easy all-natural room sprays

I bought one reluctantly to cover up the musty damp smell of our bathroom (the entire room is a project). A week later, the smell was too much for either Craig or me to handle. We both preferred musty to overpowering headache inducing smell.

An article by Dr. Mercola inspired me to get back to basics for household spray. And making room spray is soooo easy, I'm a little embarrassed to say I made it. But many natural companies will be happy to sell you their very similar version for much more money. All you need are a few basics to get started.

Non-toxic room spray

What you'll need:
  • A decent spray bottle (I use 50ml glass bottles with a spray top)
  • Several bottles of essential oils so you can mix-but just one will work too
  • Water
I prefer smells like citrus and peppermint. This one is 10 drops rosemary, 10 drops peppermint and 15 drops sweet orange. Just drip oils into your bottle, add water, put lid on and shake well. 

Another use for your new essential oils....an all-purpose cleaner to make yourself. I enthusiastically recommend Gorgeously Green All-Purpose Spray. The ingredients are easy to find and it actually cleans. I use it in the kitchen and bathroom. Smells amazing.

Have you gone green with your cleaners or room sprays? What do you use?
