My summers were often spent at my family’s lake house on the Minnesota Canada border. Days (and nights) were filled with fishing, swimming, hiking, camp fires, and board games. The air was scented with a wonderful blend of evergreens, fresh-cut fire wood, and water. This homemade room spray recipe of Pine, Cedarwood, Lavender and Spearmint captures that memory perfectly for me. Plus it’s calming, grounding, and balancing.
To make room spray:
- Fill 8 oz glass spray bottle about 3/4 full with distilled water
- Fill most of the rest of the way full with Witch Hazel
- 10 drops Pine essential oil
- 10 drops Cedarwood essential oil
- 10 drops Lavender essential oil
- 10 drops Spearmint drops essential oil
- Put on sprayer top and shake well to mix
To use: Shake bottle gently before each use. Spray into the air to freshen room. Use as often as needed.

Almost anyone can enjoy the benefits of an aromatherapy oil, but certain individuals, such as pregnant women, persons with allergies, and those with respiratory conditions such as asthma should only use essential oils for aromatherapy under the guidance of a trained professional.
Keep in mind that essential oils are highly concentrated botanical extracts and should never be ingested or applied to skin at full strength. Consult a professional aromatherapist or an accredited reference on aromatherapy for advice on these uses.
