Hormone Happy Room and Linen Refresher Spray

Posted by Stratum Aesthetics on


Conventional air fresheners often contain a cocktail of chemicals that can disrupt our hormone function and negatively impact our overall health.

Fortunately, there's a better alternative: my homemade natural room and linen refresher spray. Not only does it provide a delightful aroma, but it also supports healthy hormone function and contributes to a healthier indoor environment.

One of the key benefits of using a natural refresher spray is its reliance on essential oils rather than synthetic fragrances. 

This homemade spray contains ingredients like distilled water, baking soda, and optional vodka, which work together to neutralize odors and keep your surroundings smelling fresh. Unlike synthetic fragrances that simply mask odors, this natural blend helps to eliminate them at the source, leaving your home smelling clean and inviting.

For those looking to prolong the freshness of their linens between wash days, this natural refresher spray is a game-changer. Spritz it onto your sheets, pillows, and blankets. Not only will your linens smell divine, but the antibacterial properties of certain essential oils can also help to keep them feeling fresher for longer.

I love to spray this on clean sheets that have been sitting in the cupboard between clients so that the sheets always feel fresh.

While essential oils offer numerous benefits for our well-being, it's important to use them sparingly, considering their impact on the environment. Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts, and their production often requires large quantities of plant material and energy. Additionally, the cultivation of certain plants for essential oil extraction can contribute to deforestation and habitat loss like sandalwood, some species of cedarwood, rosewood, palo santo, frankincense. Be sure if these plants are in your life that you are purchasing them from companies that esure sustainable harvesting practices.  

However, this doesn't mean we have to avoid using essential oils altogether. When used in moderation, essential oils can still be enjoyed responsibly without causing significant harm to the environment. A little goes a long way, and by using them mindfully, we can minimize our ecological footprint while still benefiting from their aromatic and therapeutic properties.  Additionally, hydrosols may provide a fantastic alternative to essential oils. 


  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons vodka (optional, but it helps to disperse the essential oils and acts as a preservative)
  • 20-30 drops of your favorite essential oils (such as lavender, lemon, eucalyptus, peppermint, etc.)


  1. Boil the distilled water. Allow it to cool slightly before proceeding to the next step.
  2. Once the water has cooled a bit, add the baking soda to the boiled water. Stir until the baking soda has completely dissolved. This may take a few minutes.
  3. If you're using vodka, add it to the mixture and stir well.
  4. Add 20-30 drops of your chosen essential oils to the mixture. You can adjust the amount based on your preference for scent strength.
  5. Stir the mixture well to ensure that the essential oils are evenly distributed.
  6. Using a funnel, pour the mixture into an 8 oz glass spray bottle.
  7. Close the spray bottle tightly with the nozzle cap.
  8. Shake the bottle well before each use to ensure the ingredients are properly mixed.
  9. To use, simply spray the room and linen refresher spray into the air or onto linens, curtains, upholstery, etc., as needed to refresh and deodorize.

Note: Shake the bottle before each use to ensure that the ingredients are well mixed. Also, it's a good idea to test the spray on a small, inconspicuous area of fabric before using it on delicate fabrics.
