The holidays are coming.
I’ll let that sink in for a minute.
Are you starting to feel stressed, mentally plan out your plans, gifts and parties? Or are you oblivious to the coming season? I know that for some it seems crazy to talk about it already, but I prefer to plan it, get everything done early and then enjoy those precious weeks in December with my family.
I mean, I ordered my Christmas cards already and they will arrive addressed and ready for me to stick a stamp on them. Hallelujah!
So while I’m ready to break out all of the Christmas decorations and get a head start on that, I’ll restrain myself and settle for a little Christmas-y room freshener spray. I love the scent of orange and spice together. Once of my favorite drinks of the winter season is this wassail recipe. It’s so easy, so yum and I usually have all of the ingredients on hand.
Equally, this room refresher spray is yummy and easy to whip up. And is has a little added coziness with the vanilla. Delish! I spray it around just when we’re hanging out during the day or especially when a friend is coming over.
Many times I’ll opt for using my essential oil diffuser to give a nice scent to the house, but sometimes I’m just too busy or too lazy to set it up, so a quick spritz of this spray and I’m all set!
What you’ll need: (Some links are affiliate links, which help keep this blog running. See my full disclosure policy here.)
- 8 oz. bottle – I buy mine in bulk here, but you can buy them in smaller quantities here.
- 3/4 c. Water
- 1-2 T. Real Vanilla Extract (or vodka or rubbing alcohol) – I’m really partial to the vanilla for the added cozy scent.
- 6 drops of Orange Essential Oil
- 5 drops of Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
- 5 drops of Clove Essential Oil – I buy my essential oils here.
Mix all of the ingredients together in your 8 oz. spray bottle, shake and enjoy!
It’s really that simple! You can also experiment with other smells. Last year I shared some of my favorite scents for fall, which would all smell awesome in this freshener spray. Or you can get completely creative!
I love that essential oils make my house smell wonderful without harmful toxins and give me wellness benefits.
