What You’ll Need to Get Started
- 1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin - this acts as an emulsifier, which helps your essential oils mix with the water
PRO TIP: *** You can also use 1 oz. 190 proof vodka or 91% isopropyl alcohol in place of vegetable glycerin and distilled water. Alcohol extends the shelf life of your body spray which is why many opt for this concoction. You also won't need to shake the mixture before each use.
How to Get Started
Add the ingredients to your glass spray bottle and then shake well. Then shake well before each use. If you want a stronger scent, we recommend adding a few more drops of your favorite essential oil. Sometimes we go up to 38 drops to get a real uplift.
