DIY Room Spray

There has been a funky smell lingering in our kitchen the last few days. Its not super obvious (well, I certainly hope not). I only catch whiffs of it here and there. But its pretty nasty. I have a feeling its the garbage can. But I really don't want to clean it....not today anyway. Its Friday after all. So I thought I would make a home made room spray instead to help kill the smell. I will be annoying and tell you, to NOT buy sprays or air fresheners from the store! They are so bad for you! If you don't believe me, look it up and then come back and read the rest of this post. :) They are bad, just take it from me. It is so easy to make your own natural room spray that it is silly not to. And once you have the essential oils (which I'll admit are a little expensive), you will always have them on hand to use again and again. Here's how to do it.

You will need:
Distilled water (regular water won't kill it)
Vodka (not for drinking...but hey, it IS Friday)
Essential oil of your preference (I used Geranium and Ylang Ylang Ylang)
A small spray bottle (I used an old Method bottle, but if you had a glass one, that would be better)

Stop judging the size of my vodka....its multi-purpose, ok!
In a small glass bowl, mix 1 Tbls. of vodka and add 30 drops of the essential oil. Let sit for about 10 mins. The oil will mix in a bit. Pour into your spray bottle (a funnel is pretty useful) and then top off with distilled water. Shake, Shake, Shake. Then spray the room to your hearts content. That's it.

Have a great weekend everyone!
