Making Your DIY De-Stressing Mist
The amount of each ingredient will depend on how big of a spray bottle you use. As a rule of thumb a 4 oz spray bottle uses 10 drops of oil to 1/2 cups water.
When mixing your ingredients, add the essential oils first, then the water. Close the spray bottle and shake well to mix. Once all combined, spritz around your space. Store the bottled mixture in a dry space, but make sure to keep it convenient because you will definitely find yourself reaching for it again and again on those days you need a little extra stress relief.
