DIY Air Freshener

Everyone loves a nice smelling space, but unfortunately so many of those lovely smelling air refresheners truly aren’t so lovely at all. Most air fresheners actually contain hormone-disrupting chemicals (like VOCs) and since disrupting your hormones is definitely not on a healthy agenda, I highly suggest making a switch to natural fragrances. One really easy way to make a delicious smelling home fragrance involves just 2 ingredients: essential oil + water.

Combine in a spray bottle:

  • 40-45 drops total of your favorite essential oil(s)
  • 1 cup H2o

And that’s it! You now have your very own homemade, all natural air freshener to mist around your rooms, on your sheets, etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some essential oil combinations I highly recommend (all essential oils mentioned are under $10 per 0.5 fl oz bottle and a little goes a really long way):

  • sweet orange + cinnamon
  • lavender + sage
  • peppermint + tangerine

Your home will smell lovely and your mood will be positively impacted by the aromatherapy benefits of the essential oils — definitely a win-win!

  1. This is such a good idea! My parents do this. I think they use lemon for the kitchen because it is supposed to help kill germs if I remember correctly..

    Have a great weekend! xo

  2. I just read somewhere about how all the bath and body works oil scents have VOC’s. No bueno. Once they run out I’m going to replace them with essential oils. I know, I’m too cheap to throw them out.

  3. I am going through alot of air fresheners so I think I will try this before I buy any anymore. I also use aroma scents in my cleaners, some of the cleaners can be very strong so I dab a few drops in all my cleaners. It makes my house smell very freshly.
