This is literally all you'll need for this one. A small spray bottle (you can use a big one if you like but I find a small one is nice because I get through it a bit quicker and I can make a different smell next time), an essential oil of your choice, and some cool, boiled water. That's it!
Home Made Eco Air Freshener
I LOVE air fresheners! I have a house full of pets and I'm always worried that guests/friends/family will think my house smells bad. I have always been plug in mad. However, they're really awful for our health! I'm trying to move away from chemicals and nasties in my home, so here is a suuuuper simple eco DIY alternative. It literally couldn't be easier!
First, almost fill your spray bottle with the boiled water. Make sure you don't fill it RIGHT to the top as you need space for your oil and for shaking!
Next, add your essential oil. I've chosen orange this time as I think it's lovely and fresh. I also love to make this with grapefruit, lemon and peppermint. Personal taste will vary so make yours based on what you love the smell of. I added 10 drops to this small bottle, so you'll want to add more or less depending on your bottle size. Also you could add more/less to get a stronger or more subtle smell. This is what I love about DIY products- you can play about with them to make it perfect for you!
Once you've added your oil, it'll settle like this at the top. Now for shaking :-)
And there you have it! No more than a couple of minutes to make your very own natural, eco friendly air freshener! Spray a few times into the air whenever you want to freshen up an area of your home. Make sure you shake before each use as the oil and water will separate when left standing. Enjoy! Let me know if you try a smell you love!
