If you do your research into standard room sprays, cleaning products, perfumes and body sprays, you’ll make a startling discovery. Many of these ‘cleansing’ or ‘refreshing’ products are filled with toxic ingredients that are harmful for you, your family and your pets.

Thankfully there’s an alternative that’s not only safe, but has an amazing aroma whilst being beneficial for our minds, bodies and overall well being - essential oil sprays.

Australian Essential Oils Sprays

 

 

What are Essential Oil Sprays?

Essential oils aren’t new, nor are they a fad that will soon be forgotten. They’ve been around for centuries, used in botanical medicine as traditional remedies. Unlike most sprays you find on the supermarket shelves that contain artificial ingredients, essential oil sprays are made using 100% natural ingredients. At ZONE by Lydia, we source all of the ingredients for our pure essential oil blends from our own backyard here in Australia. We’re so lucky to live in a country with such rich and diverse native flora that can help to improve our wellbeing.

What’s the difference between essential oils and essential oil sprays? Our essential oil sprays contain our pure Australian essential oils blends that are diluted in water to provide just the right amount of fragrance in each spritz.

The Benefits for Using Essential Oil Sprays 

Essential oil sprays are versatile and can be used for multiple purposes. Essential oil sprays are commonly used to increase physical and emotional wellbeing and can be used as natural replacements for everyday cleaning products, or as a natural fragrance to substitute candles or synthetic sprays.

Mental clarity and mood boosting

Essential oil spray bottles are useful to have on hand throughout the day in case you’re ever in need of a pick-me-up that doesn’t involve a sugar rush or a caffeine hit. Whether you’re feeling stressed, anxious, tired or just lacking the drive to complete a task; the right essential oil spray can help to overcome these feelings and provide a much needed mental boost. Try using our Focus Essential Oil Spray. Its beneficial ingredients include Honey Myrtle, which has natural uplifting qualities that promote mental clarity, and Australian Sandalwood, which has been used for thousands of years to promote relaxation and focus.

Room and fabric freshener

Switching to a natural room spray using essential oils will ensure you’re not inhaling the harmful chemicals found in synthetic fragrances. They’re very effective in removing unwanted odours from the air, fabric or furniture.

In contrast, artificial air fresheners and paraffin candles often harbour a blend of harmful chemicals, such as phthalates and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). When released, these substances contribute to indoor air pollution, potentially leading to respiratory issues, allergies, and long-term health concerns. Additionally, the burning of paraffin candles produces soot, possibly containing carcinogens. While natural candles like beeswax, soy, or coconut offer a healthier alternative, essential oils and sprays stand out as a breath of fresh air, providing a safe and pleasant way to enhance your surroundings.

Improve sleep habits

If you have trouble falling asleep at night or your thoughts start racing as soon as your head hits the pillow, try using an essential oil room spray as a linen spray before you go to sleep. Each of our ZONE Essential Oil sprays contain Australian essential oils and aroma suitable for promoting relaxation. 

Lightly mist throughout your bedroom, mist on pillow and take a few deep breaths. Natural essential oils are smell amazing and are safe to use on bedding to help induce the calmness needed to fall into a deep and restful sleep.

Insect repellent

The chemicals found in insect repellents are a major health concern and research is revealing they could be doing more harm than good. Powerful sprays and repellents are mostly unnecessary at home for those who live in developed areas. Using an essential oil spray with natural insect repellents is effective and safe for the entire family. Essential oils including Citronella, Peppermint, Rosalina and Eucalyptus are especially effective in repelling mosquitos and other insects. Try swapping out your current bug spray for our Breathe essential oil spray. 

Natural Surface Cleaners

 

Natural Surface Cleaner & Yoga Mat Cleaner

Essential oils can inhibit the growth and spread of bacteria throughout the home and are a great replacement for the chemical ingredients found in generic cleaning products. This makes them the perfect yoga mat cleaner! Just spray down your mat before and after practice to remove bacteria and leave your mat smelling deliciously fresh!

Essential oil sprays can also used as a natural multi-purpose cleaner. We recommend using a blend infused with Eucalyptus Lemon Ironbark, like our Cleanse essential oil spray. It’s known for its antiseptic properties and refreshing scent, making it great for cleaning, sanitising and leaving surfaces sparkling fresh.
