DIY Chemical-Free Body Spray

Go ahead and spritz yourself silly with these sunny, chemical-free scents.

Bursting with bright notes of citrus and light florals, these uplifting body mists are noteworthy for what they don’t contain. According to the Environmental Working Group, the average store-bought perfume contains 14 fragrance chemicals not listed on the label, including hormone disruptors. Instead, blend your own scents using neroli (orange blossom) floral water and essential oils for two fresh and natural body mists.
