You’re probably all too familiar with the slew of emotions that come flooding when you get sober. It’s kind of annoying that we actually have to feel them, right? I definitely felt that way when I sobered up almost six years ago. Which is why I made an effort to develop a spiritual practice, including making DIY alcohol free smudge sprays and finding cozy comforts.
Sometimes you have your emotions under control. Other times, you have no idea what to do. That’s why a cleansing spray to help balance your emotions may be exactly what your mind, body, and soul need.
Just a disclaimer that this is not to be substituted for professional help. This spray is to help lift your spirits when you’re in need of balance.
What we’re going to cover:
- The scientific reason why you should cleanse your energetic body
- Alcohol free smudge spray recipe
- Benefits and uses
SCIENCE OF OUR ENERGETIC BODY
The human heart is 5,000 times more powerful than the brain on the electromagnetic field. It also extends about three feet outside of our body. (SOURCE)
What this means is that we’re in a constant state of attraction- for better or worse. And with that, comes unwanted debris. Sometimes they overstay their welcome.
You know those times when you’re in an amazing mood and your day gets progressively better? That’s your heart’s electromagnetic energy. It’s bringing the good things to you because of the way you’re feeling. The same goes when you’re down and out.
You may be thinking it’s your brain doing the work. Here’s the thing- the heart has 40,000 neurons that think independently from the brain, with its own nervous system. It also sends more signals to the brain than the brain to the heart on how to feel. (SOURCE)
Your heart’s the one that’s in control here. Everything starts there.
We also have cellular memory. Emotions get stored within our cells which cause us to keep reliving the past. Which makes us live out the same scenarios repeatedly.
Take your past trauma for example. If you find yourself not healing through it no matter how relentlessly and tirelessly you’ve tried to work through your “issues,” and you’re not healing, it’s because that cellular memory needs a new story.
Three ways to change your cellular memory:
- Actively engage in inner work to heal
- Energy healing
- Practicing spiritual hygiene

Now that we know how science plays a role in our auric field, we’re going to bridge the gap between science and spirituality to help you rewrite the stories being played on repeat.
WHY YOU SHOULD CLEANSE WITH A SMUDGE SPRAY
We shower everyday to remain hygienic. And we exercise regularly because it doesn’t just keep us in physical shape but it helps us to keep mentally fit.
That’s why we also have to maintain a consistent practice dedicated to spiritual hygiene.
We know the human heart emits our feelings and emotions out into the physical world. Because of that, we’re bringing so much into our energetic field.
By cleansing yourself (preferably everyday), you’ll keep your energies to yourself and keep out what you don’t want.
SMUDGE SPRAY TO BALANCE YOUR EMOTIONS
This spray smells so amazing. It’s light and delicate but uplifting at the same time. It’s also soft enough that if you spray too much, it won’t give you a headache.
Using apple cider vinegar instead of alcohol is what makes this an alcohol free smudge spray. The added bonus is that it helps to preserve the spray so the moon water won’t get moldy. And apple cider vinegar is an emulsifier so the oils won’t float to the top of the bottle.
Apple cider vinegar does smell really sour and is probably not your first choice to spray it on your body, clothes, or linens. But the smell dissipates really quickly and you’ll get the aroma of the essential oils.
If you’d prefer not to use apple cider vinegar, you can substitute it with alcohol free witch hazel.
TIP: Apple cider also has health benefits for hair. You can check them out HERE. You can spray this in your hair when you want some shine.
On a side note, I’m not great with top, middle, and base notes. So I just winged it. The order you see the essential oils is how I dropped them into the spray bottle, which came out really well.

TIP: If you don’t have these specific essential oils on hand, you can swap them out for whatever you have.
Please be sure to follow the counts and measurements. Essential oils are about 50-100 times more powerful than the plant itself.
Using too much essential oil or putting it directly onto the skin can cause an allergic reaction, burns, inflammation, and sometimes poisoning.
