One of my favorite things about winter is getting cozy, eating great food, and enjoying the seasonal aromas that remind me of chilly forests, spiced chai lattes, and peppermint candies. There is no better time of year for giving loved ones delicious smelling homemade room sprays to entice the senses and encourage holiday cheer.
I will always be a lover of all things pine. Its uplifting affects keep me cheerful all season long and keep my mind sharp when all I want to do is hibernate under heavy blankets till spring. Of course, not everyone is a huge conifer fan like me (and for those who are, I have a lovely balsam fir sugar scrub recipe for you), so I decided to offer you all a few tried and true holiday room spray recipes to enjoy and share with others! They make great little gifts and are super frugal as you can make quite a few for pennies on the dollar.
My Favorite Holiday Room Spray Recipes for Christmas Cheer
There’s going to be something in here for everyone! If you’re not sure which spray to make first, you can always divide the recipe to the bare minimum and add those essential oils to a piece of paper. You can then waft the aroma and see how you like it!
Keep in mind too that you can multiply or divide the basic recipe below to suite any size spritzer bottle you want to use. This comes in handy when you want to give just a little something to friends and family.
To begin with any of the recipes below, you will need:
*** The 4oz size will last a good month with frequent use and will stay fresh for months!
• 20 drops peppermint
• 10 drops wintergreen
• 10 drop vanilla (this is a very thick essential oil and may need to warm up before you can get any drops out. I use body heat to do this so that I do not harm the integrity of the oil)

• 50 drops Stress Away

To use these lovely holiday sprays all you need to do is add all of your ingredients to a spritzer bottle, cap, and then shake vigorously before each use.
Spritz them around your home before guests arrive, keep one in the bathroom as an all-natural deodorizer, or spritz them over cushions and bed sheets. They are especially lovely to use on Christmas morning.
I hope you give these a try! What have been your favorite holiday room spray recipes so far this year? Please let me know in the comments!
