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.)

Reed diffusers are another fun way to scent your home! (You can learn how to make DIY reed diffuser here.)

Add 25 drops of the pumpkin spice essential oil blend to the alcohol and water mixture. Then place the reed diffuser oil into a 2 oz. container with rattan reed diffuser sticks.

It’s super easy to make an essential oil perfume scented in pumpkin spice. Simply add the following essential oil blend to a 10 mL roller bottle. Then fill the remainder of the of bottle with jojoba or fractionated coconut oil and swirl to mix.
10 mL fractionated coconut or jojoba oil
4 drops cinnamon essential oil
4 drops fresh ginger essential oil
4 drops nutmeg essential oil
3 drops clove bud essential oil
1 drop cardamom essential oil
Use It To Make a Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub
If you’re down for exfoliating your skin to keep it glowing even when you’re not showing it off, then try making this easy, pumpkin spice sugar scrub recipe. Not only will does pumpkin spice sugar scrub exfoliate and moisturize skin, it also makes a great holiday gift idea.

Then add .1 oz. of the pumpkin spice essential oil blend, as indicated in my pumpkin spice room spray recipe, to the mixture.

Make Pumpkin Spice Body Spray
You can easily use the same essential oil blend to make a pumpkin spice body spray. To do this, simply halve the amount called for in the pumpkin spice essential oil blend, as indicated below. Then combine the essential oils with 4 oz. of your favorite, non-greasy carrier oil.
8 oz. jojoba or fractionated coconut oil
12 drops cinnamon leaf essential oil
12 drops ginger essential oil
12 drops nutmeg essential oil
9 drops clove bud essential oil
3 drops cardamom essential oil
I recommend using jojoba or fractionated coconut oil. Although camellia seed oil is another great choice. (It’s a great substitution for those who may be allergic to coconut oil.) While rosehip seed oil is perfect if you want an anti-aging oil and don’t mind the extra expense.
