Our stylish friend, Liz, is here today to share with you a quick and easy DIY project that’s perfect for summer!

Happy weekend, friends!  I hope you all had a great week.  Summer has been in full force in Kansas City and it has had me itching for a new summery scent.  I have noticed lately that strong perfumes and colognes have been a little much for me.  So I have been exploring some more natural and herbal scents.

After some searching in stores and online for one that I loved, I decided my best bet would be to make my own.  (Surprise!)  So I used some essential oils and water and created a scent I love that is fresh, light, chemical-free and perfect for summer.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

What you’ll need:

What you’ll do:

  • Fill your spray bottle up with water.  The bottle I used holds up to 2oz so I filled it almost to the top leaving space for my oils.
  • I chose grapefruit and lavender for my essential oils.  These oils are both from Young Living.  I borrowed them from my sister, but I am getting more and more interested in trying out the starter pack for myself.  (You can also purchase essential oils at your local health market)
  • Drop the grapefruit oils into the bottle one by one.  I used about 10-15 drops, but you can add or subtract drops to your liking.
  • Drop the lavender oils in the same way, using 10 drops or so as well.
  • Shake your bottle to mix the oils together.
  • Spray your new body spray to make sure it is at the desired strength.
  • That’s it!

I love how fresh this smells and that it doesn’t have any harmful chemicals.  It is perfect for a casual summer day or a nice evening out.  I have also used it as a room air freshener as well and I love the way it makes my home smell.  So fresh and yummy!

Enjoy!

  1. I love this, Liz!! Since I’m still nursing I have been avoiding a lot of sprays but this one sounds perfect!

  2. That’s all? I can’t believe its so easy!! I don’t have grapefruit oil with me. I might try mixing Orange and lavender. Thanks :)

  12. This combo sounds yummy but it will need an emollient like Polysorbate 20 or 80 to keep the oil and water blended and also very important is a preservative. Whenever oil and water are mixed a preservative is needed to prevent spoilage.
