How to make chemical free air fresheners

I love having a beautiful smelling house but with 2 teenage boys and 2 staffies (husband is usually pretty stink free) it can be hard work.

I also dont like having lots of chemicals my family is being exposed to day and night.

This is a super easy and very cheap!

What you need: Old jar, hammer, nail, bicarbonate of soda, essential oils

Clean out an old jar giving it a good clean – if you want to remove the label to make it look pretty then soak it off and you can easily remove the glue with lemon or eucalyptus essential oil.

Using a nail and hammer punch some holes in the jar lid.

Fill the jar half full with bicarbonate of soda – can be purchased from the baking aisle of the supermarket.

Add your favourite essential oils – I use about 5 drops of lemongrass in smaller smellier areas like toilets and bathrooms. For larger living areas you can use up to 10 drops of any combination.

Top the remainder of jar with bicarbonate of soda. This is now ready to remove the odours from the air and replace them with your beautiful essential oils.

This can be topped up with additional essential oils as the scent fades but the bicarbonate of soda should be replaced every 2-3 months to keep it fresh.

You can pretty it up with ribbon round the top and pretty labels should you wish.


If you need any essential oils to make this just visit the Shop tab to buy directly from me.
