DIY All Natural Mood Spray for Shalom and Tikvah

A friend was telling me recently about her studies treating sickness and disease with herbs and plants. She said something that struck me, "All around the world there are plants that can cure disease." Why is this surprising? Of course YHWH in his goodness would provide a means for his people to live healthy and whole lifestyles. He provides plants and herbs that not only fight disease in our bodies but can help us to settle our emotions as well.

DIY Shalom and Tikvah Mood Spray | Land of Honey
You will need:
Spray bottle
Essential oil
Filler liquid - witch hazel, rubbing alcohol, or water

It's up to you what your filler liquid is. I keep a bottle of 'tikvah' in the car and for that I like to use rubbing alcohol because it doesn't leave a wet feeling. If you intend to use this as a body spray I would recommend witch hazel, which has a lot of healing properties as well. For my bottle of 'shalom' that I use around the house I just use water. All three work well, so the choice is yours.

Fill your spray bottle with the liquid of your choice, approximately 90% of the way. Then add your essential oil and shake it up.

These are two combinations that I like. 
5 drops tea tree
5 drops lemon
5 drops grapefruit
2 drops eucalyptus

5 drops lavender
4 drops chamomile
2 drops lemon
2 drops grapefruit
1 drop cedar wood

Of course you can play around with these as starting points to come up with blends that you enjoy and benefit from. There are many essential oils with some of the same qualities so feel free to use those instead if that's what you have on hand. I personally keep a bottle of Tikvah (Hope) in the car, and it helps me turn from the stress of the day to the things of YHWH. The Shalom or peace blend stays in the house and I think it is especially calming before bed.

The sprays won't stay completely blended on their own, so give them a shake before you use them.

The awesome menorah soap doesn't really have anything to do with this project but I had to share it with you guys!


  1. Hi
    Super cool ! Why the names? Is because of the oils benefits? Or the feeling by smells

    1. Hi Florentii! The idea behind the names is the feelings they inspire when you use the blends. Shalom to give you feelings of peace and calmness and Tikvah for hope and positivity. :)

  2. What essential oils are you using? Are they therapeutic grade? Been praying about frankincense and myrrh. But would like 100% therapeutic grade - so many on the market.

    1. The oils that I use come from They are very high quality and reasonably priced. I have used a few from DoTerra and Young Living and have liked those as well. I know finding a brand can be a little overwhelming but I would highly recommend The Oil Shop! Frankincense is a phenomenal oil and helps with conditions from muscle pain to depression to inflammation. My family uses a boswellia (the tree frankincense is derived from) supplement for pain and it works very quickly and thoroughly for headaches, sore muscles, arthritis, etc. I also love myrrh for it's antiviral and mood lifting properties. Both are more costly than the oils I used here but I believe they are well worth the value. :)
