DIY Aromatherapy Mist
Need a quick pick me up in the day?
We all have those days where we just lose our energy and quick. You know the days I am talking about. The ones with 13 loads of laundry, sports practices, meal prepping, and all the other little things that go on in the day. Some days we just need that extra little something to keep going!
One of my favorite ways to freshen things up and give me new life is by using essential oils. I found this lovely blend of oils that work in a snap for that extra boost of energy!

You can make your blend anyway you would like but I found that this blend was the perfect combo for a quick afternoon pick me up. I really love the floral smell of the geranium mixed with the others. It freshens everything up and honestly makes me feel SO energized.
How to Make Your Spray
First fill your glass spray bottle with 1-4 ounces of water. I had 2 ounce bottles and only filled it up with 1 ounce of water for my aromatherapy mist. But you can make it in any size that you wish. Just go off my measurements for one ounce and multiply things if you want to make a larger solution! It is super simple and you cannot mess it up. FYI: Remember you must store essential oils in glass!
Next you will want to add your blend of oils in. I choose to do 1 drop of Breathe, 2 drops of Geranium, and 2 drops of peppermint. The scent is so wonderful, I think it makes a great fragrance to wear as well. It also does it’s job and gives me that extra boost of energy I need on some of those busier days I have.
Step three = enjoy! That is literally all you have to do! Once you add the oils to the water, your spray is ready to use. Be sure to shake it before you use it. What I love about this blend is that it can be used for so many things. Like I have mentioned, you can use it to energize you, get you going, and help keep you moving! Or you can use it to freshen up a room! OR you could even use it as a perfume! Literally, the sky is the limit.
You can store this mixture at room temperature, but you will want to give it a good shake before each use because oil and water will separate.
There are PLENTY of other ways to use these 3 oils!
If you are a first time oil user and aren’t sure why you would want to buy these 3 oils, let me tell you how much I use these 3 (I use PLENTY of other oils as well) and how they have helped me!
Peppermint: I apply peppermint to my temples whenever I am having a bad migraine. It helps relieve that pressure! I honestly use peppermint daily.
Breathe: This is the most awesome respiratory blend. It also is awesome to diffuse at night when you cannot sleep. I go through so much Breathe!
Geranium: This is a huge stress reliever! It is fantastic. It also helps with balancing hormones and giving you great circulation.
COMBINED, these 3 make the best aromatherapy mist, but separated, they also give you SO many options.
