Happy Easter long weekend.
Easter always makes me happy because it means that spring is finally here and we will soon have some colour in our lives when the grass gets green and the flowers start to bloom. Things are still brown outside right now, so to make myself happy until the lilacs bloom, I like to use this;
Uplifting Room Spray
To 125 ml of filtered, spring or distilled water, add
15 drops Grapefruit (Citrus paradise) essential oil
2 drops Peppermint (Mentha piperita) essential oil
1 drop Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) essential oil
Shake well each time before using to blend the oils with the water.
Grapefruit (Citrus paradise) essential oil is my "sunshine" in a bottle. Smelling it makes me happy and if I close my eyes, I can imagine a beautiful, warm, sunshiny day, even on the coldest days of winter. Grapefruit is considered safe, especially in this room spray because it will not be used on the skin. Always use caution around children and animals.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) essential oil is light and refreshing and helps to freshen a room. This essential oil should be avoided in pregnancy and lactation, around children, especially infants, and around animals. You can omit the peppermint and add 2 more drops of grapefruit oil.
Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) essential oil is very floral and gives me the scent of flowers that I long for all winter. It has quite an intense odour, so it is best to only use 1 or 2 drops or you may have nausea and headaches. Ylang Ylang is considered to be non-toxic, a non-irritant and non-sensitizing.
Happy Easter and happy spritzing.
