I think this is quite an old recipe, it's been used in my family for a long time. I like it because there are no chemicals, it's inexpensive and it smells good! This can be used as an air freshener or as a personal freshener on a hot day. Try spraying your poor hot feet after a hot day of shopping. I use it to spray on my hands after dishes or housework, the vinegar is a natural skin softener.

I really love this! I use the vinegar and water/oil solution daily but never added in the baking soda. First it is fun to make like a science experiment, then I added in lavender/cherry oil mix. Sounds weird but smells great. They mix it at the organic store for me and I use it often. Now I have not spritzed myself like others posted but I have spritzed the house and it is refreshing. I think I may look to get some cinnamin/apple oils to use and make some more. Thank you.

This is very refreshing. Love how soft it makes my skin feel too. Lavender is one of my favourites too. Thanks BB! I think of you often. :)

I'm sorry...but I wasn't too crazy about this mixture. I cut the recipe in half so that it would fit into a small spray bottle and I even scented with my favorite essential oil blend. My hands are always in the water so I loved the thought of having something near the sink to help with my hands. I didn't quite care for the feeling I had afterwards...my hands felt like they had a film of stickyness over them.... enough that I had to wash my hands after 10 minutes. Once my hands hit water, they became very slippery....enough to drop dishes that I was cleaning up. Maybe if it was just the white vinegar, that might have worked for me?!?! I loved the ingredients, but obviously this was not the right combination for me!!
