Homemade Sprays for Your Sacred Space 

Essential oil based sprays are useful for clearing the energy of your space, refreshing your energy body, or simply providing a sensory link to whatever mood you're trying to create. With the huge range of essential oil options available on today's market thanks to the popularity of aromatherapy, your options are endless!

 

While it may sound intimidating, it's actually quite easy to create your own room and aura sprays. Making your own sprays helps to focus your intentions and add a touch of sensory magic to your sacred space – and it's a wonderful way to get started exploring the properties of essential oils!

 

In this blog post, we'll describe each of the elements you'll need to create a homemade room spray and provide some examples for inspiration. 

 

 

What You'll Need to Get Started:

    • A spray bottle. An indigo glass bottle looks pretty and will shield contents from light exposure (to help keep bacteria and fungus from growing in your spray), but just about any small spray bottle will do.
    • Water. Spring water or distilled water is best. (Tap water works, but be aware it can leave mineral deposits in your bottle and may contain unwanted additives.) For an extra special spray you can even use rainwater, snowmelt, or water charged with moonlight!
    • Disinfectant: We use a small amount of witch hazel to keep our sprays fresh over time, but you can also use vodka or vegetable glycerine. (For this purpose, cheap alcohol is fine)
    • Essential oil or oils: Be sure to use pure essential oils rather than perfume oils, since anything containing lipids will separate from the water instead of mixing. It's fun to experiment with blends of two or three oils, but single-scent sprays are great too!
    • Crystal chips: While totally optional, a few small small crystals can boost the energy and/or the intention of the spray. Try to match the intention of your spray with the crystal you add.

 

Mixing Your Spray

For every 2 oz (about ¼ cup or 60 ml) of finished spray, you'll use 1 tsp. disinfectant and about 4-8 drops of essential oil, filling the rest of the bottle with water.

 

Make sure to focus mentally on your intentions as you work. You may even want to speak your purpose as a verbal affirmation while creating your spray. If you choose to add a small crystal, save this step for the end, as a way to "seal" your intention into the spray.
