Cloth Face Mask Refresher Spray Blends

 

Here are a few recipes for DIY alcohol and essential oil based cloth mask refresher sprays. These sprays will freshen up your mask with the aromas of pure essential oils. It is important to change your mask daily and these sprays do not sanitize your mask. 

I have tried these sprays on disposable masks, and I don't recommend it because it just drips off the mask. It is best to lightly spray the outside of your cloth mask and wait about 3 minutes for the alcohol to evaporate so that just the subtle scent of the essential oils remain. I used 175 proof Vodka because it evaporates and dries the fastest. If you need to use a lower proof vodka, it may take a few minutes longer to evaporate off the mask. I also used a very low essential oil ratio to alcohol. This is not a perfume, but rather a very subtle aromatic pick-me-up for your mask.

Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If you experience any adverse reactions, discontinue use.

Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
