Annieís Deodorizing Room Spray

The natural light fragrance that this spray leaves behind is so luscious, using it is a real pleasure. Itís simple to make, and all you do is spritz some into the air of any area that needs freshening. Here is the formula for this lovely all-natural deodorizing spray.


8 drops essential oil of lavender
4 drops bergamot essential oil
4 drops clove essential oil
2 drops peppermint essential oil
1/2 cup vodka
1/2 cup distilled water

1. Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle, shaking well to mix.

2. In any areas that need freshening, simply spritz four or five times into the air.

Makes 1 cup.

Frebreeze has insecticide in it - I wouldn't use

Is this safe for fabrics? I'd like a freshening spray, like Febreeze, for my clothes and this sounds like it might work for that purpose. Thanks!

If stored in a dark, airtight container away from heat it will last indefinitely. But since it needs to placed in a spray-bottle to actually use it, it will not last forever. If you put it in a dark spray bottle (to block UV light) the mixture will last much longer and will be safe to use until it eventually evaporates. However, since the essential oils are more volatile (meaning that they will evaporate quickly) than the water or vodka, the scent will become less potent the longer it is stored. Let your nose tell you if it is still effective after about six months.

Did anyone ever say the shelf life? I's really like to know before I make a batch! Thanks!

how long of a shelf life does this spray have when stored in a spray bottle?
