After we invest the best of our time and money in our makeup, the next thing we ask for and wish for is that the makeup stays fixed throughout the day and that we don't walk around with smudged lipstick and cheeks smeared with eyeshadow. We usually achieve the durability of our makeup with the help of products such as expensive primers. To create a spray to fix the makeup, you can use the following wonderful recipe.

Hand sanitizing gels have become a regular part of our daily lives, used to clean hands and prevent the spread of disease in places where we don't have access to soap and water. However, these products have many drawbacks, as they contain potentially dangerous chemicals. To meet the need for disinfection with natural and safe ingredients, you can make your own hand-sanitizing liquid with essential oils that has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and nourishing properties, without the risks that usually come with the store-bought versions.
For this homemade disinfectant spray, you will need:

5. A spray that leaves a wonderful scent throughout the house
Air purifiers have long passed the threshold of the bathroom door and penetrated every corner of the house and many businesses. A wonderful smell invites us in and we even recognize different places by the characteristic smells of each of them. The problem is that a quick glance at the list of ingredients on the back of the packaging of various air purifiers leaves no room for doubt that while we are perfuming our spaces, we are also breathing and smelling a lot of harmful and unnecessary chemicals. The good news is that essential oils have a natural solution for us that is no less effective and fragrant. All you have to do is follow the following wonderful recipe, mix the resulting solution, and spray your home with an intoxicating scent.

6. An anti-lice oil spray
We all wish for a moment that the nuisance called lice will be completely gone from the world: when you think about it, it sounds a little far-fetched and unlikely that generation after generation in one family suffers from the same annoying and contagious problem of parasites that travel and feed on our scalp. There are various lice treatment products on the market, but most of us still prefer to use products that are not loaded with harmful chemicals for our children, especially if they offer the same level of effectiveness. Such a substance made of essential oils has even been scientifically proven to be effective in treating lice. To prevent infection, spray the compound on the hair in the morning and at night. In case you or your children have already been infected with lice, perform the same action of spraying the substance in combination with a dense comb on damp hair.
A recipe for an essential oil spray to prevent and treat the appearance of lice:
- ¼ cup of water
- 10 drops of tea tree oil
- 6 drops of lavender oil
7. Cleaning spray for the mattress
We often forget to refresh our mattress regularly, or even never do it. When we put sheets on it, that's enough to protect it from absorbing any dirt or odors, right? This is not the case, and cleaning and freshening the mattress must be done. To do this, you can use a special compound made of vodka or witch hazel water, essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus, mint, clove, rosemary, and water. Once it's been sprayed on the mattress and had time to soak and dry, you can then place new bedding on it. Additionally, this mixture can also be used to inhibit mold growth.
