Material cost is high → It is expensive to prepare at the beginning, but I think that it is not so much if you use it for different purposes such as making it many times or spreading the scent with a diffuser.

Absolute ethanol has a high alcohol content of 99% or more, so be careful of fire. Essential oils are also oils, so the same is true.
Essential oils are made from natural plants, but many are irritating. Do not touch the undiluted solution with bare hands except for tea tree, lavender, and lavandin. If it gets on your hands, wash it off with soap. Please be careful when choosing essential oils, as some of them are synthetic in general stores.
It smells good, so you'll want to use citrus essential oils. First of all, most of them are yellow or orange, so you can get stains on the mask. In addition, the component called furanocoumarin contained in citrus oil is said to be phototoxic, and when the skin is exposed to sunlight, itching and spots may occur on that part. If you really want to use it, there is also a furanocoumarin-free (FCF) essential oil, so please use it. Furanocoumarin is also found in the essential oils Angelica and Verbena.
Please note that some essential oils cannot be used by some people.
Please pay attention to the above and enjoy yourself.
I made 50ml with the above 3%. The essential oils are 6 drops each of Lavandin, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Rosemary and Eucalyptus Globules.
I sprayed not only on the outside but also inside of the mask. It got wet at first, but thanks to alcohol, the water quickly flied away. Also, many of the essential oils are volatile, so the scent disappeared immediately.
You may want to carry a spray with you and spray it several times a day instead of changing your mood. Also, there is a risk of getting it in your eyes, so remove the mask before spraying.
I made a handmade mask spray and introduced the recipe.
It would be great if the mask life became even a little more comfortable.
I hope to return to the original world without masks as soon as possible.
