If you’re looking to make your home smell nice, but aren’t sure about using chemical air fresheners for your home, you can turn to the natural odors that nature provides. Below, you’ll find some of the best natural air fresheners and how to use them to make your home smell fresh and clean.
Lemon And Rosemary
Who knew that one of the best natural air fresheners was right in your kitchen? All you need is a mason jar, vanilla extract, rosemary, water, and lemon. Mix together and leave in the jar for a fanatic smell.
Lilac Room Spray
You can leave your home smelling like springtime the whole year through. Just combine water, vodka, and lilac oil in a container with a sprayer. This compound is the ultimate room refresher.
Natural Carpet Freshener
You can freshen your carpets quickly and naturally by combining baking soda, dried rosemary, and lavender right on your carpets. Just let the mixture sit on rugs for about 15-20 minutes, then vacuum it up and voila, you’ll have quite a fresh smelling room.
Natural Refills For Plug-In Air Fresheners
You don’t need to throw away empty plug-in the wall air fresheners. You can reuse the glass container. You can use your favorite essential oils and water, place back in the jar, and keep your rooms smelling fresh and clean.
Fall Into A Season
If you’re not a fan of burning candles, you can combine cinnamon oil, orange oil, and water. Boil it together, and your home will smell like a fresh fall day.
There isn’t really any one particular scent that you have to use in your potpourris. Just look for recipes that intrigue you. Your home will smell like a new world when you combine sweet and spicy smells to make a long-lasting scent out of potpourri.
Make Your Own Diffuser
To make your own reed diffuser, all you need is a small glass container, rattan reeds, alcohol, almond oil, and your favorite essential oil. Some examples would be lemon oil or lavender oil. It all depends on what room you’re using the diffuser in and what effect you hope to have. The reeds soak in the scent, giving it off to the entire room.
As with many kinds of cleaning around your home, you don’t need fancy cleaning products or air fresheners. Things that you probably already have in your home can work as great cleaners, deodorizers, and odor neutralizers. Give these natural air fresheners a try and see if they make a difference in your home.
