I don’t know about you but I’m going nuts over here.
This winter has been cold and that means the heat is running a lot. The heater sucks all the moisture out of the air and I’m left with dry skin and static clothes. That kind of combo can drive anyone up a wall!
I’m starting to solve the dry skin problem with my Herbal Body Oil. That has helped tremendously. I’m also trying some dry brushing. I’ll let you in on that secret when I’ve given it some more time.
The major issue that is left is the static. A little here and there isn’t too much of a problem. But I’m tired of my shirts, hair, and pajama pants sticking to my body! Maybe it doesn’t bother others as much as me but I can’t take it any longer.
Often times when the static is overtaking my wardrobe I’ll run to the bath room and run some water on my hand and then sprinkle it on my clothes. This kind of works but I end up with wet splotches on my shirts. Not really a big deal but also kind of annoying.
Then I figured out to put some water in a spray bottle. Duh! It shouldn’t have taken me this long to figure out. The spray bottle mists an even amount of moisture over my clothes. It gives me just enough to counter the dryness and stop the static.
I also figured I could put some essential oils in the bottle as well. Then I can smell nice too. (Because face it, moms don’t get to shower every day.) A little freshening up never hurt anyone! I chose some invigorating, fresh scents from the citrus family for this spray bottle. Lemon, Grapefruit, and Wild Orange are some of my favorite essential oils.
So if you are suffering from static taking over your life, this might help you regain your sanity until the end of winter.
- Fill your bottle almost to the top with water.
- Add essential oils.
- Shake well.
- Spray on static clothing or hair as needed.
You could easily make any sort of essential oil combo to suit your needs. Here are some oil combination ideas:
- Invigorating: Peppermint, Wild Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon
- Soothing: Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Vetiver, Frankincense
- Uplifting: Lavender, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Sandelwood
- Earthy: Cedarwood, Patchouli, Eucalyptus, Clary Sage, Melaleuca
So far this DIY Static Stopper Spray is working very well. I even sprayed some around the room to add some moisture and freshen the air. I will probably keep this spray bottle by my side for the rest of winter!
How do you deal with the dry static of winter?
