The bathroom is an aroma-centric room; smells (good and bad) are abundant. If you want to do away with unpleasant aromas, this DIY bathroom spray is a great place to start. Using a few simple ingredients, it creates a luxurious, refreshing scent that naturally neutralizes odours. The Cedarwood Essential Oil works as an effective deodorizer, while Bergamot adds a warm depth. Ylang Ylang rounds out the blend and adds a touch of floral sophistication.

Spray it directly into the toilet or mist it into the air to instantly freshen up your space. It gives you (or your guests) the opportunity to leave the bathroom smelling better than when you entered it.



4 tablespoons witch hazel

1 tablespoon Sweet Almond Oil

10 drops Bergamot Essential Oil

10 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil

8 drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil


  1. Add all the components to a mist bottle and shake gently to combine.


  1. Shake gently before each use.
  2. Spray in the air to freshen up your bathroom. 


As this spray contains water and no preservatives, it’s important to keep it in a cool, dry place and to make a new batch every one or two months.
