Essential Oil Spray Bottle Recipes are SO Easy to Make!

It's so very easy to make an essential oil spray bottle recipe. You only need a few supplies – a spray bottle (glass preferred), water, 5-15 drops of essential oils (depending on the size of your bottle), and an emulsifier like a pinch of salt or 1 tsp. of Witch Hazel.

Spray Bottles

There are many different styles and sizes of glass spray bottles on Amazon. I normally make my recipes in either 2 or 4 oz. bottles. Any smaller and it's not enough, any larger and it takes a long time to finish. I've listed many options for you here below.

Keep Out of Heat and Direct Sunlight

Keep in mind that essential oils do lose their potency and therapeutic properties in sunlight and heat. So brown or darker bottles are best, but if you like the style of the clear ones better, make sure to store the bottle in a cool cabinet, away from sunlight and heat.

Fresh Breath Spray

Use this to keep your breath and mouth fresh! Squirt 1-2 times directly inside the mouth. Peppermint and Clove are both considered “hot” oils, which means they can irritate the skin more easily.

Healthy Hair Spray

When lice are going around the school, spray your kids' hair with this before they head off in the morning to keep the critters away. You can also use it for yourself to help your scalp and hair to be extra healthy. Many have found that cedarwood essential oil helps to grow hair.

Sun Relief Spray

When you've been out in the sun too long, and your skin isn't happy, spray this directly on the affected areas and gently rub it in. Use 3-4 times a day if needed to give your skin some support.
