How to make your own re-fill or new mister/spritzer

Making your own mister

  • Things you will need to make your own mister
  • Spritzer/Mister bottle 8 oz or 250 ml, dollar store has these for under 2$
  • Distilled water 4 litres at Shoppers/London drugs for 2.19$
  • Bottle of your favourite essential oil

Re-fill existing mister bottle

  • First determine the size/volume of the bottle
  • If it is a 250ml/8oz bottle
  • Fill it with distilled water, we use distilled as it has no impurities
  • Take the metric volume of the bottle say 250ml divide by 10 = 25
  • These are the amount of drops (25) of essential oil you will drop into the 250ml bottle.

Home made mister

  • Each bottle of essential oil should have a dropper set into the top, by turning the essential oil bottle upside down, you should get drops from the oil.
  • Viola you now have your own home made mister.
  • Each time you use the mister shake it to mix the oils with the distilled water


  • Your cost then for a refill of a 250ml/8oz mister will be around 1.14$
  • Cost of a store bought mister around 16$ or more.
  • This way you can make your own custom designed mister


Here are some applications for a misters use you may not have thought of.

  • Lawyers: use a lavender to help client relax
  • Dentists: use Lavender to help patients with anxiety
  • Retailers: use an orange mister as the smell of oranage stimulates spending, we tested this in our retail store and it did work.
  • Hotels: use it to spritz the corridors and when turning down beds to freshen the room and environment, you can be creative with the type of oil, you use.
  • Kids bedtime & grown ups: lavender is a great relaxant to help them sleep, mist the room and the pillow case and sweet dreams.
  • Cars: Instead of the pine tree hanging from the mirror, keep a mister in the glove box, use a citrus fruit oil as this keeps you alert
  • Home: bedroom,bathroom,mud room, basically anywhere you want it to smell nicer.
  • Office: here you need to be diplomatic, if you are in an open space office with many co workers, always ask if they would mind if you used a mister as they may have allergies. Once you have a concensus of agreement ask them what aromas they like and bring one in to test.

Your creativity is only limeted by your imagination, so try an oil or a combination of oils you haven't used before.
