On a hot day, one thing that can be pleasantly cooling – as well as lovely to smell – is a light, summery fragrance from a water ionizer spritz!
Nice Smell, Not-So-Nice Chemicals
But here’s a thing; eau de Cologne, perfume and body sprays can contain a veritable cocktail of chemicals.
What’s more, the fragrance industry is alarmingly self-regulating, with the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) setting voluntary “safe use” levels for chemical additives…even though some of them are potentially hazardous.
If you like to use an aromatic spritz of some kind, but you want to keep your toxic load as low as possible, then we have a fresh and fragrant solution!
Try making your own refreshing spray using water from your water ionizer and natural plant extracts for a safe and cooling spritz during days where there’s very hot weather.
- 2 cups fragrant flower or herb petals/heads (packed, no leaves or stems)
- 2 cups of ionized water from your water ionizer
- Shake flower heads to remove bugs and rinse if you think the flowers have been sprayed with herbicides
- Place ionized water and petals into a medium-sized pan.
- Warm the water gently and remove from heat once tiny bubbles start to form.
- Cover and leave the mixture to cool completely overnight.
- Strain the liquid through a muslin cloth or coffee filter, gently pressing the petals with the back of a wooden spoon.
- Decant the fragrant liquid into a spray bottle and keep in the refrigerator!
This makes a beautifully fresh, light fragrance to cool down with – and no chemicals!
Experiment with different herbs: rosemary, lavender, and mint all work well. Adding a twist of lemon or orange peel gives a lovely citrus note.
Create your own signature scent!
