Does anyone else have a full-blown allergy attack when they walk thru the cosmetics section in the mail? Do you remember when they would want to give you a sample of every kind of perfume at department stores? Sneeze central! I have always been sensitive to those strong smells. Since I was little, I always did a body spray of some sort instead of perfume. In college and really for years now, I use Kai. If you love any type of gardenia smell, this body spray is for you! But since I have been dabbling in the essential oil world, I have been making my own scents. Which is a lot of fun! I change it up per season. Plus, its really easy to do, and makes fun gifts as well! I’m showing you today my three summertime sprays.

Super easy here! But 1st, you have to get pretty bottles, which I got here. Shop below to find some more fun bottles you can use! And then, you need to get some dried flowers. These pretty flowers came from Kathy, the sweet lady behind The Flower Patch. It is an Etsy shop, where she will custom make dried flower arrangments for you! Super cute especially for a wedding, DIY, party, etc.
Ok, so this is what you have to do. 1st, take your dried flowers and push them into the bottle. They have to be small enough to fit. Then simply, just fill up your bottles with your essential oil and liquids. The directions are above for each spray. Adjust the amounts for your bottle size. I sometimes will use 4-6 oz bottles cause they are sprays. When gifting, I will use small ones like above. Couldn’t be easier! Then, just spray and refill when needed! I like to refill once a week, so the dried flowers don’t get moldy. You can simply omit the flowers, but they make the bottle look so pretty!
