Bergomot is one of my go-to essential oils when creating any room or body spray. Here is the recipe to my favorite body spray.


Distilled Water
20 drops Lavender Essential Oil
15 drips Bergamot Essential Oil
10 drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil


  1. Fill a 4oz glass amber spray bottle 3/4 full with distilled water.
  2. Add in essential oils
  3. Shake well before each use and spray your heart out!

I use on my hands and yoga mat to cleanse, as a car freshener, or just to smell beautiful! It’s light, uplifting, and smells AMAZING!
