this easy diy mask spray makes the whole experience much more pleasant!

They are now as much a part of leaving the house as grabbing my car keys.

Ironically, even though we are – as of this post – almost 6 months into this pandemic, it’s only been the past 2 months that I’ve really been wearing my masks so much more frequently. And for longer stretches.

At the beginning, everything was closed and we rarely left the house. But now that restrictions are lifting and more places are opening, we are “out” more and more.

Which means, of course, more and more mask-wearing.

And it’s not the funnest.

But these mask sprays? Make the experience substantially more pleasant.

And they couldn’t be easier.

Simply put 4 – 6 drops of your favorite oil (or a combination) into a small spray bottle (4 – 5ml), add a splash of witch hazel and fill the rest with water. Give a shake and spritz on your mask before each use.

My personal favorite is a blend called Citrus Fresh (a mix of citrus oils + spearmint) but you can use any oil you love to smell. I’ve listed some for you below; what would you use?

Essential oil options:

Lavender, Frankincense: calming

Peppermint: “wake up”

Lemon: uplifting

Thieves: immune support (also great if you love Christmas-y smells!)

Eucalyptus: respiratory support

    Brilliant idea to add the oils to a small mister. It certainly makes it easier to carry in your purse. I added your recipe to a post I previously wrote about essential oil uses and I linked to you.
