This is a formula for creating a mini-spa at home, using natural ingredients that promote relaxation.

  • 3 cups distilled water
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 10 to 12 tablespoons dried orange-peel slivers
  • Orange essential oil
  • Mason jar
  • Strainer
  • Funnel
  • Decorative bottles


  • Combine distilled water and vodka in a jar with a tight-fitting lid (the vodka acts as a fixative to hold the scent).
  • Add orange essential oil and stir, then add dried orange peel. Set the mixture aside, with the lid on tightly, for four weeks.
  • Using a strainer, decant, and funnel into decorative bottles. Add more dried orange slivers, if desired.

You can make lemon water, rosewater, etc., using this same process.

Add scented water to your bath to add fragrance without oil, or use as a light cologne.
