Give your linens, bedroom, and the air in your home a refreshing spritz sans harsh chemicals.
natural room spray
ANUSHA RAJESWARAN

Essential oils—extracted from leaves, fruit peels, petals, and other plant parts—capture nature's subtle fragrances and can refresh your living space. That's why contributor Anusha Rajeswaran decided to create this all-natural spray, which you can spritz throughout every room in your home. All you'll need to recreate this project is unscented witch hazel, dried flowers, distilled water, and your favorite essential oils. You can mix and match the former for a signature scent: Try combinations like wild orange and tea tree, lavender and rose, or green tea and cucumber.

Step 2

Fill the bottle halfway with witch hazel. (Note: Witch hazel helps the oil and water combine and will help the scent linger for a longer period of time.)

Step 3

Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water. This ratio works pretty well no matter the size of the bottle.

    How difficult was this project?

    Difficulty: Very Easy
    Recipe doesn't make sense as it does not mention the size of bottle used. 25-30 drops of essential oil in a 2 oz. bottle is a way different ratio/concentration than if the bottle is 16 oz. Better editing and proofreading necessary Martha Stewart staff!
