This spray is effective as an air freshener, deodorant for smelly feet/shoes, or a topical pain reliever.
This proportion fills a 250ml spray container. For multiple containers, MEASURE INDIVIDUALLY. Making a larger amount & pouring into separate bottles gives an uneven distribution because the essential oils will not stay dispersed long enough to pour.
- 250 ml container
- 50ml 95% alcohol*
- 20 ml Tea Tree essential oil
- 20 ml Peppermint essential oil
- 10 ml Grapefruit essential oil
- 5 ml Eucalyptus essential oil
- 5 ml Sweet Birch essential oil
- 125 ml water
Pour half the alcohol into the container, reserving the remaining half.
Measure out the essential oils and pour into the container.
When oils are dispensed, pour remaining alcohol into glass cylinder to rinse any left-over oils and add to the container.
Add water to container and label.
Shake well before spraying.
One or two squirts act as an air freshener, or spray into smelly shoes or directly onto soles of feet to energize them. Also cools insect bites and burns. Spraying into sink will scent entire room.
DO NOT SPRAY DIRECTLY ON PLASTIC.
*99% isopropanol from Shopper’s Drug mart is fine here because it is for external use.
