Essential oils of your choice (I purchased mine from Mountain Rose Herbs)
8 ounce glass bottles with sprayers (I purchased mine from SKS Bottle & Packaging)
Pour water into bottles and then add essential oil drops. To store, keep out of direct sunlight. Spray on sheets, blankets or in the air to create a fresh smelling aroma.
