Supplies for your Face Mask Spray

1 oz Spray Bottles

The first thing you’ll need to do is pick up a few sprayers for your face mask spray.  The recipes in this article call for a 1 oz spray bottle.  I like to grab a pack of sprayers from our good friend Amazon so that I have several for around the house and in my purse.

I adore these pretty little frosted glass spray bottles that come in either silver or gold.*

Witch Hazel

You’ll need some Witch Hazel to use as the liquid in your spray bottle.  This is how the essential oils will be sprayed out onto your face mask.  Choose an unscented, natural Witch Hazel like THIS ONE that is alcohol-free.

  • Add your essential oils to your spray bottle, according to the spray recipe you chose
  • Top off the spray bottle with witch hazel
  • Add your sprayer cap to your bottle and gently shake to mix everything together.
  • Spritz the inside and/or outside of your face mask before wearing, and again after wearing to freshen and sanitize.

How to Use Your Face Mask Essential Oil Spray

Once you have your face mask spray ready to go, it’s very simple to use it. 

Give the inside of your spray one or two spritzes, and that’s it!  If you have sensitive skin, you may want to spray the outside of your mask instead of the inside so that the essential oils don’t make contact with your skin.

Final thoughts on using a Mask Spray

While using a mask isn’t our first choice, we can make it easier to bear by using a pleasing essential oil spray.  

Choose a spray for your needs, or even make one of each and keep them in a cosmetics bag in your purse.  You can pull one out and use it as needed.  

Just be sure to wash your hands or spray with OnGuard Hand Sanitizer so that you aren’t getting germs on your mask.
