These handy dandy air freshener discs made with baking soda and essential oils smell fantastic and will help with the smell around the house, office or in the car. Say good bye to chemical filled fresheners!

This baking soda air freshener diy creates lovely, enjoyable discs that are natural and safe for your home, your family and the environment! These air freshener discs are very easy and pretty quick to whip up and can easily be customized with scents of choice, dried flowers or spices.

  • Mix baking soda and water into a thick paste. 
  • Use a spoon to transfer the mixture into a muffin tin lined with baking paper. Fill each tin about 1/4 of the way.
  • Pop the tray in the oven and bake at 350 F = 180 C for 20 minutes or until dry and firm.
  • Allow the disks to cool and top with 3-4 drops of essential oil of choice (or a blend). I used a blend of lemon, lavender and thieves (2 drops lemon, 2 drops lavender, 1 drop thieves per each disc). Add more essential oils to refresh your discs. 
  • Sprinkle with dried flowers if you like. 
  • Keep unused discs into an airtight jar.
Use discs as needed around the house.

    Once you set them out how long does the scent last

  • Patty Patty on Jan 02, 2022

    Can these be laid in a drawer with clothes? Any staining?

    How do you cut the baking paper so it fits in the muffin tin? Do you cut a circle or a square?

    please be careful when using essential oils if you have pets. Some are very deadly to pets.

    I’m looking forward to making these and putting them in my air vents. I got 5 cats 😳 and a nose that’s better than a hound dog’s. I’m terrified of becoming "nose blind".
