Pumpkin Spice Room Spray Recipe with Essential Oils

Ingredients:

1.8 oz. distilled water
2 oz. high proof grain alcohol or perfumer’s alcohol
.2 oz. polysorbate 20
Pumpkin spice essential oil blend, see below

Pumpkin Spice Essential Oil Blend:

24 drops cinnamon leaf essential oil
24 drops ginger essential oil
24 drops nutmeg essential oil
18 drops clove bud essential oil
6 drops cardamom essential oil

Directions:

Weigh out the distilled water, alcohol and polysorbate 20. Then combine the ingredients in a glass 4 oz. bottle with a fingertip mister using a funnel. Next, add the essential oils and shake well.

To use this DIY pumpkin spice room spray, simply mist in the air or onto linens as desired.

How to Make a Pumpkin Spice Room Spray with Fragrance Oils

If purchasing essential oils is outside of your budget at the moment, you can also make my DIY pumpkin spice room spray using a fragrance oil. Simply use .2 oz. of your favorite pumpkin spice fragrance oil in place of the essential oils called for in the recipe.

How Can I Make Scent Substitutions to This Pumpkin Spice Room Spray?

Done with pumpkin spice? You can use the basic ingredients in my pumpkin spice room spray recipe to customize it with any of your favorite fragrances to enjoy year round. Simply substitute the pumpkin spice essential oil blend with another essential oil blend of your choice. Or swap out the fragrance oil with one more suited to the current season.

What If I Don’t Want to Use Alcohol?

If you don’t want to use alcohol to make this DIY pumpkin spice room spray, or you can’t find high proof alcohol, that’s okay. Alcohol can be expensive. However, the alcohol does serve as a natural preservative for this room spray. Therefore, if you choose not to include alcohol in your room spray recipe, you will need to use a preservative.

To make my pumpkin spice room spray without alcohol, replace the alcohol with additional distilled water. Then also add .05 oz. Optiphen ND (by weight) to the mixture.

Do I Have to Use Polysorbate 20 To Make My Room Spray?

You do not have to use polysorbate 20 to make this DIY pumpkin spice room spray. It is recommended, however, as it’s a great emulsifier that keeps the oil and water mixed together. Should you choose not to use polysorbate 20 in your room spray recipe, you should replace it with a solubilizer, such as vegetable glycerin.

Is This Pumpkin Spice Room Spray Safe for Pets?

Unfortunately, my pumpkin spice room spray is not pet safe. Clove essential oil and cinnamon essential oil are known toxins to dogs and cats. Skin exposure or ingestion can result in poisoning. As room sprays can coat your pet’s coat, it’s best not to use this room spray around pets. These essential oils are especially harmful to vulnerable dogs such as puppies or dogs with liver disease. Therefore, it’s best to avoid using my pumpkin spice room spray in areas where pets may reside. (Learn more.)
