Preparing this spray water will take only 2 minutes and will be so worth it! // 
Preparare quest'acqua spray vi ruberà solo 2 minuti e ne varrà davvero la pena!


You need // Vi occorre:

You just need a spray bottle (I used an empty perfume bottle), water, fresh mint and
your favourite essential oil (optional). // Vi serve solo una bottiglietta spray (io
ho usato una vuota di un profumo), acqua, menta fresca e l'olio essenziale
che più vi pace (opzionale).

How to // Come procedere:

Start filling up the bottle with water, then add mint leaves (cutting the stalks) and some
oil drops. I opted for vanilla and, against all odds, the mix with mint is incredibly good smelling!
Let the bottle in your fridge and bring it with you when you go out.
Perfect also as a fresh, non alcohol, Summer perfume. You're gonna love it!
Iniziate riempiendo la bottiglietta d'acqua, aggiungete le foglie di menta (tagliando
i gambi) e alcune gocce di olio profumato. Io ho optato per la vaniglia e, contro ogni
aspettativa, il mix con la menta è risultato essere incredibilmente buono!
Lasciate la bottiglietta in frigo e portatela con voi quando uscite.
Perfetto anche come un fresco, non alcolico, profumo estivo. Lo adorerete!

  9. This sounds so nice for when I'm outside all day! I use the Mario Badescu Rose Water Spray and I love it, but I think I'd love even more to have a DIY version!

    1. Oh, I didn't know that water, sounds great :) DIY are always a money saving options (and you know always what's inside!)

  10. What do you use to keep it sanitary? Water gets infected with germs quite easily.

    1. I simply wash mint with disinfectant, the same that can be used for food and I change the ingredients after 2-3 days :)

  11. Wow! This is amazing!! Must try.
