Fill a spray bottle three-quarters full with the distilled water. You can buy distilled water at the grocery store, in the drinking water aisle. Purchase a spray bottle at drug or dollar stores. Spray bottles come in different colors and designs. Do not use an old spray bottle. The former contents leave residue in the spray pump.
Fill the bottle the rest of the way with the rubbing alcohol. Keep the rubbing alcohol away from children. Be careful while pouring not to get it in your eyes. Leave room at the top of the spay bottle for the essential oils.
Add 10 drops of essential oil. Depending on how strong the scent is, you may need less essential oil.
Screw the lid on tight. Shake well by turning upside down. Open the nozzle and mist an area. Do not spray around food. Shake the bottle before each use. Oil and water naturally separate if left alone.
