If you can't hit the showers directly after a workout, have no fear! This easy DIY essential oil body spray will help you feel fresh. I've partnered with NOW® to share this DIY body spray recipe with you.
I workout hard on most days. That means I sweat, a lot. Unfortunately, my gym classes aren't first thing in the morning or the last thing I do before bed, and I can't always hop in the shower right after. I've usually got errands to run right after the gym and even though I don't mind looking like a sweaty mess, I definitely do not want to smell like one.
Since I've been adding more essential oils into my daily routine, like using this homemade all-purpose cleaner recipe and homemade bug spray, I decided to see what could create with my oils to help me freshen up after workouts. Turns out, you can easily make a DIY Body Spray with Essential Oils that will leave you feeling and smelling fresh after a sweat session.
I started by gathering my supplies. For this blend, I used 4 different NOW® essential oils. I've amassed a great little collection of essential oils since I visited NOW Foods last year and I've found so many ways to use them in our home. What I love about NOW® essential oils is that they're so incredibly affordable compared with other oils on the market, yet they're high quality. How are they able to keep costs down? They've developed long-term relationships with vendors they know and trust, and they have their own in-house labs for testing ingredients and purity. With NOW®, you can be sure that you're getting exactly what the label says.
For this blend, I used Tea Tree Oil, Lavender, Lemon, and Bergamot oils. I also knew I'd need a spray bottle and now has great 2-ounce glass spray bottles to use. This blend smells so fresh and I just love the way it makes me feel after a workout.
DIY essential oil body spray for post-workout

- 5 drops NOW® Tea Tree Oil
I recently made this blend for a friend who is training for a marathon and changed the label on her bottle to read: Post-Marathon Freshen-Up Spray. I know she's going to love it and hope it makes her feel refreshed after her long runs.
I'm so ready to tackle my workouts and know that I won't offend anyone when I'm running errands afterward! I hope this DIY essential oil body spray works well for you!
