How Do You Make Christmas Room Spray
The most wonderful time of the year is right around the corner! Can you believe it? I created these awesome holiday room spray recipes to help us all get into the holiday spirit.
I’m not a very big fan of candles. And honestly, I can’t stand air freshener either. Not only does air freshener give me a headache but it is also filled with really nasty chemicals that can harm your health.
I prefer to freshen up my home naturally with essential oils.
These holiday room sprays make it quick and easy to make your home smell amazing with zero chemicals. Plus, you can also use them to freshen up linens.
And they make really awesome Christmas presents. Especially, if you use the super cute labels I created for you!

To use this holiday room spray simply shake well before use and spritz all around the room. It can also be sprayed directly onto pillows, curtains, blankets, or couches.
Why Do You Need Witch Hazel in Room Spray?
Witch hazel is an important ingredient in homemade room sprays. It helps to combine the essential oils and water which helps the scent to linger longer.
What Can I Use Instead of Witch Hazel in Room Spray?
If you don’t have witch hazel on hand you can use drinkable grain alcohol (ethanol) or vodka instead.
I decided to use witch hazel in this recipe because a lot of people already have it on hand and it can be easily found at your local drugstore.
Plus, I’m not 100% comfortable using room spray made with high-proof alcohol around my family as it can be an upper respiratory irritant.
And it can also be difficult to mask the strong alcohol scent.
Is Witch Hazel or Vodka Better for Room Spray?
Some claim using vodka instead of witch hazel will help the scent last longer but I’ve tried both and I didn’t really notice a difference.
In my opinion, witch hazel and vodka serve the same purpose and are both great for making DIY Christmas room sprays other than the fact that not everyone is comfortable using room spray made with vodka around their family.
Can You Use Rubbing Alcohol Instead of Witch Hazel for Room Spray?
Rubbing alcohol can be used instead of witch hazel as well. I prefer not to use it because I am not 100% sure that it is safe.
As of right now, it is not classified as a carcinogen but in my opinion, it does have the potential to be a hazardous chemical.
Isopropyl alcohol can irritate and burn the skin and eyes. It can irritate the nose and throat and repeated high exposure can cause dizziness, headaches, confusion, and more.
