I made some room sprays for holiday gifts.  They were super simple to make, and people really loved them.



I did three different ones:  Peppermint, Lavender, and Grapefruit; Orange Spearmint; and Rosemary Eucalyptus.



I designed the labels in Publisher and cut them with my Silhouette.  I attached them with my Xyron, but I wish I would have used a stronger adhesive, as some of them started to pop up after a few days.



I used 4 oz bottles.  To make I added about an 1.5 oz of vodka, 2.5 oz of distilled water, and between 10-20 drops of each essential oil.  I researched and tested different combinations based on the oils I had available, and ended up liking these three the best.



They were the first thing to run out at my holiday gift buffet!

Vodka? I would have never guessed that! They look very professional.

It's weird, huh?!  Oil and water don't mix, so the vodka apparently helps them temporarily slosh together in a more cohesive way.
