Aromatherapy Spray for Mood Enhancement

Basic Aromatherapy Spray


1. Fill a small spray bottle with 4 ounces of distilled water.
2. Place the oil, or oils, of choice in the bottle*.
3. Shake vigorously (before each use).
4. Spray around your room, in the air. If you have chosen a relaxing formula it is also a good idea to use aromatherapy on your pillow or sheets.


* DO NOT place oil in a plastic bottle unless it has been diluted. Certain undiluted oils, especially citrus, can cause the plastic to melt.


Aromatherapy Relaxation Spray


2 drops ylang-ylang essential oil (good for restlessness, anxiety, and lack of libido)
1 drop frankincense essential oil (good for depression, lack of focus, and mental fatigue)
3 drops lavender essential oil (good for anxiety, anxiousness, stress, and insomnia)


Aromatherapy POWER Spray


1 drop peppermint essential oil (good for a tension headache, fatigue, and clarity)
2 drops clary sage essential oil (good for balancing hormones and clarity of thought)
3 drops wild orange essential oil (good for physical energy, positive mood, and inner joy)


Choose oils carefully, making certain that they are of the highest quality. Click To Tweet

  4. I’ve never had much to do with aromatherapy oils and sprays, but this was really interesting. Thanks for joining in with #TriumphantTales, hope to see you again next week!

  5. This is a facinating post, I love how different smells and transport me in my mind to another place or time in my life and I always have different scents around the home. The idea of making aromatherapy sprays is a wonderful idea.

  6. I love essential oils! I use Lavender every day in my room but I like the idea of spraying it in various parts of the house. I also want to try some new oils so this is a great list of ideas:) #MMBC

  7. Wow Elise. Interesting facts about these oils. When I was teaching my all-boys classes, I used to put a few drops of lavender oil in various spots around the room. This helped calm them down – all that testosterone had to be dealt with – especially after running around outside at recess times.
    Thanks for these facts. i will investigate these further.
    Take care
