DIY Natural Body Sprays

Besides smelling good, essential oils are chock full of healing properties. So, when you make a body spray using therapeutic-grade essential oils, then besides smelling good you get the added bonus of those oils' healing and aroma-therapeutic qualities. It's a win-win! 

Today I'm sharing the recipes for a couple body sprays I tried at a Make-n-Take party. They both smell scrumptious.

Here's the base recipe (found here)...
  • 8 oz distilled water in a spray bottle
  • 1 TBSP witch hazel
  • 20-30 drops essential oils (see examples below!)
To make it, just combine ingredients, seal the bottle tightly and give it a good shake. Remember to shake it before each use.

Comforting Spray
  • Base Recipe (8 oz distilled water + 1 TBSP witch hazel)
  • 6 drops cinnamon bark
  • 8 drops orange
This smells like everything wonderfully yummy in the Fall and Winter. It's a deeper scent for the cooler months. Cinnamon Bark is warming and Orange is uplifting.

Energizing Spray
  • Base Recipe (8 oz distilled water + 1 TBSP witch hazel)
  • 15 drops grapefruit
  • 5 drops lavender
This smells cheerful and uplifting. It's a lighter scent for the warmer months. Grapefruit is an anti-depressant and stimulant, while Lavender is soothing and calming.

*All essential oils are NOT the same... please read this before buying any!
