How To Make All-Natural Room Spray

Learn how to make all-natural room spray with witch hazel, essential oil, and a few simple steps. All-natural room spray will scent your home with a fresh, clean scent and no toxic chemicals.

I'm bringing you a fantastic DIY room spray recipe in today's post that smells wonderful. Homemade room sprays are a natural solution to help remove odor and leave a clean scent in the air. DIY room sprays are inexpensive and take seconds to make.

Witch hazel, essential oil, and water are all you need to make a safe and effective room spray. This recipe is easy to customize by using different oils. You can make a lavender scent for bedrooms, a citrus blend for the kitchen, fall blends, and my favorite, a cozy blend using lavender and vanilla essential oils. I'm sharing my favorite room spray blends at the end of this post. I encourage you to experiment with different oils and see what you come up with.

I love making homemade room sprays with essential oil. Store-bought room sprays are not only expensive, but they also pollute the air with toxic ingredients. We breathe in the chemicals store-bought room spray put into the air. Homemade air fresheners are better for us and the environment. In my opinion, DIY room spray smells better, and the scent lasts just as long.

Other uses for witch hazel

  • Bug Bites helps to relieve itching, and reduces redness and inflammation.

  • Reduces under-eye puffiness and dark circles.

  • Acne witch hazel is an astringent and removes dirt, oil, and make-up. Witch hazel will help with acne by reducing redness, and inflammation.

  • Blood Stains witch hazel can break down and dissolve the proteins in the blood. I haven't tried this but I've heard this works on dried blood too. To use as a stain remover soak the stained area in witch hazel for 20-30 minutes. Rinse the area with cold water and wash as you normally would.

  • Remove Stickers & Labels witch hazel breaks down glue for easy removal. Press a cotton ball soaked in witch hazel firmly on the sticker or label for 2-3 minutes, then scrape away the residue.

I like to add a few sprigs of lavender, herbs, or dried flowers to my room sprays. They give the room sprays a touch of beauty. 4oz bottles are small enough to leave on an end table, nightstand or countertop. I love adding lavender to the room spray I use in my bedroom. It serves a purpose and is pretty to display.

What You Will Need


4 oz spray bottles ( Dollar Tree has a two-pack of 2 oz spray bottles in the craft section)

Essential oil of your choice

Distilled water

Witch hazel

Dried flowers or herbs ( optional )


Pour 25 to 30 drops of essential oil into the bottle.

Fill the bottle halfway with witch hazel.

Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water.

Shake the bottle to combine all of the ingredients.

Insert dried flowers or herbs (optional)

Helpful Tips

For a 2 oz bottle cut the essential oil in half, 12-15 drops.

If you don't have distilled water you can boil water for a couple of minutes and let it cool completely before using it.

This room spray also works well on fabric. I love to spray it on my curtains when the weather is nice and the windows are open. Every time a breeze comes through the window it spreads the scent into the room.
