Even before I started to rid my home and life of needless chemicals, I never really used commercial air fresheners. Something about the fake fragrances always kind of gagged me after using them. I did love the smell of candles burning and I miss having certain fragrances wafting through the air.
Recently, as I flipped through a magazine I found this awesome recipe to make your own home air fresheners and deodorizers out of very simple ingredients and some that we have talked about before.
Try these at home and enjoy the aroma of essential oils and relax knowing you are using safe products.
10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil (I love the relaxing aroma of lavender; but others to try are lemon, pine, or orange).
1/2 cup distilled water
Put into a spray bottle, shake well before each use and spray around your house.
1 teaspoon baking soda (This ingredient absorbs odors)
1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice (These both will deodorize the air and surfaces).
2 cups of hot water
Put in a spray bottle and spray in the air to kill odors.
