Mood-Boosting Room Sprays Using Essential Oils
Indoor room sprays can help improve one’s mood.
For a variety of reasons, many people are just not able to spend time out in nature. Unfortunately, breathing only stale and stagnant indoor air can contribute to lack of energy and a depressed mood. One relatively easy solution for this problem is for people to use an energy-boosting room spray to lift their spirits. Individuals who can’t spend a lot of time outdoors should spritz an uplifting scent when the gray days of winter seem to close in.
There are refreshing room sprays available in various retail stores, but some people prefer to make their own using specific essential oils. The process of making a room spray is simple, and the same ingredients can be used over and over once the bottle is empty.
Lavender is a fragrance that people have used in the past to keep linens fresh while in storage. Many women during the Victorian age preferred this scent in their perfumes. More recently, lavender is recognized as a calming scent and as a sleep aid for children and adults alike.
It is possible to create a mood-elevating room spray with lavender and lemon essential oil. One can easily make a lavender room spray by combining 15 drops each of lavender and lemon essential oil with 1.5 ounces each of distilled water and witch hazel. Vodka can be substituted for witch hazel. Mix the ingredients and pour into a small spray bottle. The bottle should be shaken before each use.
Chamomile is another popular remedy for symptoms of depression and fighting off stress. To promote relaxation using chamomile, combine 1.5 ounces of distilled water with 1.5 ounces of witch hazel or vodka and 15 drops each of chamomile essential oil and rosemary essential oil. Shake well and spray around the entire house to ward off winter blues.
