Pour witch hazel and distilled water into a 2 FL oz. (59 ml) spray bottle.
To make own room spray using lemongrass set a small funnel on your bottle and slowly pour in 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of witch hazel along with 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of distilled water.
- If you don’t have witch hazel, use vodka. Either of these help release the essential oils when you use the spray.
Add lemongrass, peppermint, grapefruit, and rosemary essential oils.
Put all of your essential oils into the small bottle. If you’d like to make an all-lemongrass spray, use only 30 drops of lemongrass essential oil. For a refreshing lemongrass room spray, add all of these to your bottle:
- 5 drops of lemongrass essential oil
- 10 drops of peppermint essential oil
- 10 drops of grapefruit essential oil
- 5 drops of rosemary essential oil
Close the bottle and shake the mixture for 10 seconds.
Put the screw cap tightly on the bottle so the bottle is completely sealed. Then, shake the bottle to combine the witch hazel, water, and essential oils.
- Shake the bottle before each use since the oils and water will separate a little.
Spritz the lemongrass spray around your home or on linen.
To remove unpleasant smells or to just make your room smell better, spray the mixture around the room. Keep spraying until you can smell the lemongrass. If you’re ironing linen, spray the surface of the fabric with the mixture until it’s wet. Then, iron the linen to remove wrinkles.
- You can also spray your pillow or sheets before bed to enjoy a calming scent as you fall asleep.
Use the lemongrass spray within 3 years.
Store the spray at room temperature and shake it gently before using it. Since the essential oils will become rancid over time, discard the spray after 3 years or if it develops an unpleasant odor.
Tip: Remember to label the outside of the bottle so you know what type of spray you made. Include the date so you know how long to store the spray.
