DYI Air Fresheners

Sometime last year, I discovered these two simple recipes for making my own freshening sprays. They’re incredibly inexpensive, they smell pretty, they work on odors and they take so little time to make.

Two Natural and Simple Air Freshening Recipesdiy-air-freshener

Recipe #1

You can double this depending on the size of your bottle.

  • 12-15 drops of pure essential oil (I like grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lavender, but go with any scent that you enjoy)
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water

You can also make an even stronger version of this spray by using a higher ratio of vinegar to water and upping the essential oils (more like 20 drops) to use in a small diffuser bottle. This works better for just a quick spray into the air to freshen up a bathroom before guests, as opposed to the less concentrated spray that you would spray directly onto/into items.

Recipe #2

4 Tbsp natural/eco-friendly fabric softener (I’m currently using Ecover’s fabric softener, but there are many brands available in your favorite natural grocery store) and a few drops of your preferred essential oil.

Fill rest of a regular size spray bottle with water.

I use 8 drops of tea tree essential oil and 16 drops lemon essential oil. It cleans and leaves a nice bright scent!
