Easy DIY recipe: natural room spray with essential oils
Make your room smell amazing, energizing, relaxing, fresh, foresty, spicy . . . or however you like! . . . with a handmade, natural room spray with essential oils.
Your air will be full of health-supporting essential oils, instead of toxic synthetic substances.
This is a recipe to inspire energy and purify the air, but once you know how to make your own room spray with essential oils, you really can customize it to whatever purpose you like.
Let’s get to the recipe!
(Then I’ll tell you more about the essential oils in it, and what they can do.)
Energizing Room Spray with Essential Oils!
- 2 oz (60 ml) Water (distilled or filtered)
- 15 drops Bergamot essential oil (Citrus bergamia)
- 15 drops White Pine essential oil (Pinus strobus)
- 10 drops Ravintsara essential oil (Cinnamomum camphora ct. 1,8-cineole)
- 6.4 ml solubol
Put the water in a 2 oz (60 ml) PET plastic spray bottle.
Add the essential oils and solubol, close the bottle, and shake gently.
You’re done! Spray it all around your room!
Great Recipe Swap!
If you like, you can use an aromatic hydrosol instead of water as the base of your room spray.
A few beautiful options would be:
… Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
… Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus)
… Blood Orange (Citrus sinensis)
After you make your room spray, you may notice the essential oils are floating on top of the water. This is natural. (Oil and water don’t mix.)
If you want to keep the essential oils more dispersed through the water (or hydrosol), add Solubol to your room spray.
Solubol is a natural dispersant. I suggest using 4 drops of Solubol for every 1 drop of essential oil in your room spray. In this case, that would be 160 drops of Solubol (or approximately 6.5 ml).
I also recommend making this blend fresh every 2–3 weeks.
(But I bet you’ll use it all up long before that!)

What benefits do the essential oils have?
Using this natural room spray with essential oils regularly can—of course!—fill your room with a gorgeous aroma.
Let’s talk about the benefits the essential oils in this recipe add.
All three essential oils can help:
- Support respiratory health and immunity
- Reduce germs in the air
- Inspire mental clarity and bright, positive energy!
They also each bring their own personalities to the room spray.
Bergamot essential oil (Citrus bergamia)
Bergamot is a beautiful, warm, sparkling citrus oil! It creates feelings of relaxation and happiness.
A room spray is the perfect recipe for Bergamot, because it’s not going on our skin. In topical blends, Bergamot is phototoxic—causing skin reactions in sunlight. There’s no concern of that in a room spray.
White Pine essential oil (Pinus strobus)
There’s something so fresh, crisp, and clean about the aroma of conifer essential oils! It always reminds me of being out in the woods on a clear day. White Pine is no exception.
It helps clear the mind, allowing space for inspiration and reflection. Just like a day spent in the forest.
Ravintsara essential oil (Cinnamomum camphora ct. 1,8-cineole)
The fresh, penetrating scent of Ravintsara oil may remind you of Eucalyptus—and with good reason! Ravintsara contains the component 1,8-cineole, which is also the main component in Eucalyptus globulus.
Ravintsara can help you feel more confident and mentally sharp, motivating you to greet the day with energy.
