I am one of those people that loves my home to smell like I have a cake in the oven or cookies cooling on the counter. And more often than not, I probably do. I am a food blogger after all. So, when I was dreaming up a fun holiday gift idea using my Young Living Essential oils – *scroll down to the bottom of this post for MORE gift ideas* – it hit me like a ton of bricks … holiday dessert room spray recipes!!
Holiday Room Spray Recipes
To get started, gather your supplies. I’ve made it easy for you to shop for similar items to the ones I used by including affiliate links in the list below. When you click through and make any purchase, I receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you). Thanks for supporting Shaken Together!
- Glass spray bottles (I used an 8 oz. Glass Plant Mister. I love this blue knobbed mister from Target and there are tons of affordable plant misters here for about $10. You can also use 4 oz. glass spray bottles. It is important to use glass bottles as some essential oils (especially citrus) can break down plastic.)
- Distilled water
- Salt – this softens the water a bit and helps the oils stay incorporated in the water
- Clear vanilla extract
- Young Living Essential Oils
- Ribbon, twine, trim
- Kraft Paper Tags
- Ink Pad & Alphabet Stamps (or hand write the tag if you have pretty hand writing)
To make it easy to customize these holiday room spray recipes, they all start with the same base.
Room Spray Base (for a 4 oz. container)
- 4 oz. distilled water
- 1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
- Tiny pinch of salt
I’ve seen some room spray recipes that replace some of the water with vodka, witch hazel or rubbin alcohol. You can certainly do so, but I went with a simple base that used ingredients I already had in my kitchen. If you are using a larger or smaller spray bottle, you can half or double the amounts above. And I like using clear vanilla extract so the room spray isn’t tinted by the regular brown vanilla extract. Yes it is an artificial flavoring, but it gives each room spray that sweetness that we all expect from holiday baked goods … YUM!
Once your base is mixed up, add Young Living essential oils to make your favorite sweet treat scented room sprays! I’ve put general guidelines below for the number of drops of oils, but if you want a lighter or stronger scent, adjust according to your preference.
Sweet Mint Holiday Room Spray
Just add in 3 drops of Young Living Peppermint essential oil to your 4 oz. of room spray base. Shake and mist the air or fabric. (Test a swatch first if you are spraying on fabric.) For some holiday cheer, add a length of striped ribbon and pom pom trim to the bottle and add a stamped tag with the room spray scent.
Lemon Pound Cake Room Spray
To 4 oz. of room spray base, add 3 drops of Young Living Lemon essential oil. Tie on some pretty yellow ribbon or fun pom pom trim for a little lemon colored whimsy and add a tag stamped with the room spray scent.
Gingerbread Cookies Room Spray
To 4 oz. of room spray base, add the following Young Living essential oils: 3 drops cinnamon bark, 2 drops clove and 1 drop ginger. Polka dotted brown ribbon adds a little pizzazz to your gift and a stamped tag lets your recipient know they’ll enjoy the scent of gingerbread cookies!
The delicious holiday room spray recipes with essential oils are pretty much endless! Here are a few more suggestions to make room sprays that smell like sweet treats:
- Snickerdoodle Cookies: room spray base + cinnamon bark essential oil
- Spiced Cider: room spray base + Christmas Spirit essential oil
- Orangesicle Dream: room spray base + orange essential oil
- Key Lime Pie: room spray base + lime essential oil
