Here are six must-have holiday room spray recipes using essential oils that you can’t live without this Christmas or holiday season! They will fill your home with the cozy, spicy, merry scents we’ve come to love.
I Stopped Buying Scented Plugins and Candles…
Why make your own holiday spray bottle recipes at home? Because the ones in the stores contain toxic and irritating artificial fragrances.
I love to make my home smell like the holidays, but when I used to use scented candles, plug-ins, and air fresheners, I found they would give me a headache, make me feel tired, and even make my nose burn! I started to research why they’d affect me like that as I got into more natural living and found that these fragrance-filled products are very toxic to our health.
Artificial Fragrances Contain Plastic and Formaldehyde
Why? It’s because they disperse particles of formaldehyde and phthalates (thy-lates) into the air. Phthalates are small particles of plastic that are used to bind artificial fragrance molecules together. We then breathe in those tiny particles of plastic, and they get into our noses and lungs – yikes!
The term “artificial fragrance” stands for more than 3,000 chemicals, and companies do not have to disclose which chemicals are included. So there’s no way of knowing if the chemicals in the product are safe for our health or not. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be safe than sorry, and now that I use essential oils, it’s SO easy to put a few drops in my diffuser or make room sprays like we’re doing today to make my home smell like a cozy, cabin in the woods in a winter wonderland!
Which Essential Oils to Buy?
To make these holiday room spray recipes healthy and good for you, you’ve got to start with pure, high-quality essential oils. My favorite essential oils company is Young Living (learn more about their oils and starter kits here). I personally have experienced their oils being of much higher quality than most others on the market, and I’ve visited two of their farms and have seen their commitment to quality and purity first-hand. They have starter kits that make, well, getting started (LOL) with essential oils really easy and fun!
