DIY Room Refreshing Spray

DIY Room Refreshing Spray

DIY natural (well...mostly natural) room and linen sprays are all the rage in recent years for a good reason. Most people are looking to cut down on household toxins and questionable ingredients being inhaled throughout the home. This super simple 4 ingredient spray that you can make in literal minutes, is completely customizable to whatever scent your like. Keep in mind your mixture may be milky or opaque in appearance. Using a white or colored opaque bottle helps hide this. Fragrance ideas: fresh, linen, floral, perfume, fruity, earthy, and spicy.
