What essential oils are good for room sprays?

That is a difficult question to answer definitely because essential oils have different scents, and everyone has their own preferences.

Still, there are some essential oils that are generally considered to be good for room sprays because they make a house or workspace smell nice without overpowering the other odors. These include lavender, lemongrass, peppermint, and lemon essential oils.

What to mix with essential oils to make a room spray?

Water is fine to be used if you will be using the spray within a week. If it is longer than that, there will be microbial growth (bacteria loves water) and you will want to be sure to have 20-30% of your volume be ethanol to serve as a preservative. Avoid rubbing alcohol.
