Method:
  • Combine the Stage 1 ingredients and stir until solubilised.
  • Add Stage 2 ingredients and combine thoroughly. Put into spray bottles and label.
Please note that Emulsifan will make the room spray slightly hazy. Different essential oil combinations may even appear milky.
 
Heavier essential oils such as Vetiver or Patchouli will take a while to solubilise and may need more Emulsifan to do the job, so leave them to stand for longer before adding to the rest of the formulation.
 
You may want to make a stronger smelling room spray, so, either use more pungent essential oils such as Patchouli or May Chang or, increase the amount used. For light essential oils, the essential oils and Emulsifan should be the same amount. For heavier essential oils or a higher amount, increase the amount of Emulsifan and decrease the water amount so that the whole formulation still totals 100%. We find that using more than 10% Emulsifan can start to make the spray feel sticky, so we advise using the lower amounts.
 
The room spray may be used to freshen rooms and fabrics but ALWAYS do a test spray in an inconspicuous area first.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development team;

“It sounds like your essential oils and preservative have not fully solubilised. Try making a small batch with more Emulsifan. Sometimes this is needed especially with heavier essential oils. You could also try leaving the essential oil, preservative and Emulsifan mixture for 24 hours before adding the water so that the Emulsifan has longer to solubilise the other ingredients.”

Thank you for all the great advice and products. I am currently using you room, spray recipe and am noticing a separation between the water and other products. All my products are you bought from yourselves and was wondering if I was doing something wrong.
Thanks Danielle

“No, that level of alcohol will work as a preservative, so you don’t need to add one.”

Hi, I am looking to make some room sprays using formulators alcohol at around 80%, distilled water at around 20% and essential oils around 3-5%. Would I need to use this preservative as well and use less alcohol?
Thanks

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“You should be able to substitute some of the water for Isopropyl Alcohol but that amount will not be enough to omit the preservative.

Have you seen the recipes that we have included with the IPA? There are two which use 75% IPA plus water and essential oils but no preservative as with this amount of IPA the room spray is self preserving. The room spray will evaporate very quickly. Perhaps this would be a better solution for you."

Best wishes to you all and thank you for your recipes and for your work.
As we are still in January, I wish you all a wonderful 2021 :)

I could use your help as I am wondering if I can freshen up a mattress using a slightly modified recipe by replacing 15-20% of the water with isopropyl alcohol. Also do I have to use preservative 12 if I’m including the alcohol in the formula?
I am aware it might stain the mattress, I am not concerned about its colour but about the unpleasant smell of it.
Thank you, indeed.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“Sorry, but no. The Emulsifan will always make the spray cloudy at the least. With some essential oils combinations, it can also appear milky (as you have found). I have just updated the recipe on the website to make that clear.”

Hi,
I have just used your recipe to make a room spray with lemongrass and tea tree essential oil. The result is completely milky in appearance. Can this milky appearance be avoided in any way?
Cheers Kim

“A room spray recipe will not have been formulated for safe use on the skin, so please do not do this.”
