  1. I bet those all smell lovely as a room spray. Could I use rubbing alcohol instead of everclear? I don’t have access to it in Canada.

    1. Rubbing alcohol would have to be used straight. It would not preserve a waterbased spray. It may also smell quite strong and overpower the aroma of the essential oils. If you choose to do so, skip the water in the recipe.

  2. This sounds wonderful! I’m going to start with a smaller bottle at first until I’m sure everyone in the house likes it as much as I do 😉

  3. These blends will make amazing room sprays! I wish it didn’t use so many drops though. LOL! I might need to make a smaller amount since these blends are for a limited time only.

  4. Oh no! Now I have to buy these oils! I’ve been trying to practice some self control but I’ve been wanting to make some delicious room sprays. Thank you for reading my mind!

  5. 90 drops seems like alot…will it deplete the entire 10mL bottle? Or I should ask, how much of the oil will that take, like 1/4 of the bottle or more? Just wondering if I have enough oil left in my bottle to make this. Thanks!

  6. When these were first released, I thought that Morning Sunshine would be my favorite of the trio. It is divine, but Fresh Meadow is absolutely amazing!!! It is my favorite synergy at the moment.

    1. This is around a 3% dilution which is suitable for a linen spray. However, you can always use less if desired 🙂

    1. Rubbing alcohol is not a high enough proof to preserve a water-based spray. If you wanted to use rubbing alcohol, you would need to do so straight, no water content. It also smells quite strong and may overpower the aroma of the essential oils. You can learn more about blending with alcohol here.

    1. You can, just make sure to buy the highest proof you can find. We’d also recommend story it in the fridge between uses to prolong the shelf life.

      1. I’m in Australia and have only been able to find 80 proof as the highest. Would this be sufficient or will I need to buy something like Optiphen?

        1. Unfortunately, 80 proof isn’t high enough to act as a preservative, so you will need to use something like Optiphen or Polysorbate. Check out this post for more details about using preservatives.

  7. In SEOR there have been many comments stating that you need a preservative when using water in your DIY. I don’t see it listed here. Do you need one for this recipe? If so, would Germall Plus be a good choice? Thanks much!

    1. Hi Lisa, alcohol can be used to preserve a water-based spray. You just need to use at least a 120 proof grain alcohol for 20-30% of the product to do this. You wouldn’t need to add an additional preservative in this instance. We have a blog post that you might find helpful here: https://blog.planttherapy.com/blog/2018/10/18/preservatives-and-essential-oil-diys-an-overview/

  8. I was wondering if since the Everclear will emulsify the oils, would the spray be safe to use around cats? I’m thinking it wouldn’t be since those compounds that are toxic for kitties would still be there even though the oil is fully blended. I was definitely wondering, though. It’s one of the reasons that I don’t buy synergies much. I’m dying to try some of these seasonal blends & having my house smell of wonderful natural scents would be fantastic! I’m just not willing to put my furkids at risk to do it.

  9. Oooo I need to try making a room spray with the spring blends! I have used Fresh Meadow and Morning Sunshine in DIY and they smell fantastic diluted in all sorts of different medium! I don’t like Island Sunset though. I think PT should add Fresh Meadow and Morning Sunshine more permanently! Hehe.

  10. Looking forward to giving this a shot! I haven’t ventured out much with sprays. No time like the present!

  11. I love room sprays! they’re a great way to quickly freshen up a room, linens, curtans, pillows and shoes. This is an easy recipe to follow and I will definitely try it once my current one runs out.

  12. Thank you for making a DIY for the seasonal blends. I can’t wait to make this. Unfortunately, in PA the highest everclear (or grain alcohol) % sold is 75/ 151 proof. Is there a substitution for the recommended 95% everclear? I really love my fresh meadow bottles and am eager to use the oils in more than just diffusing.

  13. I really like this recipe for room spray. You can also add a little coconut emulsifier to the mix so that an emulsion is created between the oils and the liquids which lessens the need to keep shaking the mixture so often as it doesn’t separate so fast.

    1. Ooh, where would I get coconut emulsifier? How much would you add to the recipe in this article? Do you still add the everclear?

    1. I wasn’t smelling them a lot either when I diffused but I kept adding more drops until I got it. I think about 12-15 drops did the trick.

  14. This might be the perfect thing to do with my spring set, since I’m not really smelling it when I’ve tried to diffuse them. Thanks for your blog!

    1. I wasn’t smelling them a lot either when I diffused but I kept adding more drops until I got it. I think about 12-15 drops did the trick.

    1. Hi Holly, if you use straight 91% rubbing alcohol, you could. When adding water, it would not be enough to preserve. Here are the specifics of blending with alcohol that you might find helpful!

  15. I am in LOVE with the spring bundle. Fresh Meadow is the most delightful scent I’ve experienced yet. It’s so delicate! And I don’t mean weak, the scent is strong. But it’s perfectly balanced and nothing about it is overpowering. I want my WHOLE HOUSE to smell like this. Forever. I will definitely be making a room and linen spray.
