Misting Sprays

Over the weekend I was reading the weekend paper and came across Misting sprays that were very expensive! $40 for a single bottle of spray seemed a little ridiculous to me.

This is something that you can very easily make your self and then re-fill your bottle when it runs out. Using a few different combinations you can achieve a spray for different effects. Grab your essential oils and make your own. You can use my suggestions or make your own. You will make beautiful smelling sprays, you won’t add to the throw away culture of more and more products. You won’t fill your indoor airspace with harmful ingredients.
