Essential Oil Bathroom Spray Supplies
Making your own DIY essential oils bathroom spray is very simple. You can get started with just 4 main ingredients.
Here are the supplies you will need:
2-ounce Dark glass
Amazon has inexpensive but pretty 2-ounce dark glass spray bottles in amber or cobalt blue. But you can also purchase them in dark brown if you prefer.
A glass bottle is essential if you’re planning to use any kind of citrus oils (which will eat through a plastic container).
And it must be a dark amber or blue to protect the structure of the oils (light can damage the cellular structure of the oils).
The alcohol or witch hazel help the oils disperse through the water, though you’ll still want to shake the bottle before using.

10-15 drops Favorite essential oils
Choose your favorite essential oils (here is my favorite brand) — any combination will do. I like using scents like Lemon, Rosemary, or Orange.
Citrus scents are a perfect choice as they add a refreshing and clean scent while disinfecting the air.

Distilled water is easy to come by and can be bought at your local grocery store!
Why do you want to use distilled water in your essential oils bathroom spray? Distilled water has been cleaned of any impurities to offer the best results.
This type of water has been boiled into vapor and then changed back into liquid into a separate container. This process removes impurities that are in the original water (from dirt or germs) leaving clean, purified water.
