This simple DIY for a freshening spray is perfect for using on you or your child when you feel you need a little mist of refreshing scent.
Spring means heading outside and enjoying the beautiful weather. (For us it also mean allergies but that’s a different story.) For some reason even a simple walk to the mailbox makes us smell like ‘outside’. I’m not sure how else to explain it! It just is a musty smell. For this reason I decided to make a freshening spray for both me and the babe.

What You Need for Your Spring Freshening Spray
- Essential oil of your choice. (I highly suggest subscribing to the super fun subscription box from Better Essentials! If you are new to oils, you get three a month that you will absolutely love. If you know a lot about oils, there are oils and blends you probably don’t have! So check them out! The scent I used is called ‘Fresh Air’ from the March box. You can buy it separately too, though!)
- Plastic Spray Bottle
- 4 oz Vodka or Gin
- 4 oz Water
- Jojoba Oil (optional)
- Cricut (optional)
- Rose Gold Metallic Vinyl (optional)

The jojoba oil is optional only because it is a carrier oil but I felt like in the one I did without the jojoba oil, it was just fine! If you do it with or without, you are going to want to shake it before use anyway.
First I started by combining the water and alcohol in a glass.
Next I added the Fresh Air scent! I used about 20 drops. If you prefer a stronger scent, add more.
Then you will use a funnel to pour the mixture into your bottles.
This mix is safe for children but of course you’ll want to keep it out of reach because you wouldn’t want them drinking this!
I also made a little cut file with my Cricut so I knew what was in these little bottles. It was just a simple cut I created in Design Space that says “Fresh Babe” in a serif font! I used some metallic foil vinyl in rose gold.
That is it! We have used this almost daily since I made it. It doesn’t smell like perfume. It smells like fresh air on a crisp morning and is just the right hint of scent to mask the musty outside smell that seems to stick around!
