10 DIY Essential Oil Room Spray Recipes

Room sprays are the perfect way to diffuse oils and make your home and furniture smell good! However, the list of dangers in commercial air fresheners can go on and on. As they have become staple products for every home to have and use. They are filled with many toxic chemicals (too many to even name) and they are very hazardous to families and pets!


Phthalates- When spraying a room spray, phthalates will land on human skin and enter the blood stream. Phthalates are known to disrupt hormones and cause many different diseases and reproductive abnormalities.

"NRDC tested 14 different brands of common household air fresheners and found that 12 contained the hormone-disrupting chemicals known as phthalates. " -NRDC


Perfume/Fragrance- It is one word on the ingredient list but behind that word is hundreds of different chemicals. Many of which are cancer causing & hormone disrupting. Read more about the dangers of Fragrance here!

These aren't the only harmful chemicals found in air fresheners though, as there are many, many, many more. The chemicals found in air fresheners can cause various forms of cancers, genetic disorders, and many different diseases. Unfortunately, it can take years for these diseases to develop in a humans body so in many cases, it is not linked to these horrible chemicals found in home and beauty products.


How are these chemicals allowed to be put in our products? There is no regulation on cleaning products! You might see the word "natural" on an air freshener and think it is without harmful chemicals and safe to use. However, because the cleaning industry is self-regulated, you really don't know if that product is toxin-free because they may be leaving harmful ingredients off the label!

To avoid messing with harmful chemicals, I recommend to have some fun and make your own! Here are my 10 personal favorite room spray recipes using Young Living Essential Oils!
