All Natural Air Fresheners

All Natural Air Fresheners

Whether it's the insistent smell of last night's dinner or the dog's wet coat after a rainstorm, there are times when the air in our home needs to be freshened. Store-bought air fresheners and candles are an option, but the perfumes and chemicals can sometimes cause headaches, nose and throat irritation, and other health issues. If you're looking for all-natural alternatives to try, these seven options can help.

Simmering pot fragrances are easy to make and offer endless recipes to try. For thoughtful gifts, just assemble in batches and package into mason jars with ribbon!

Scented pillow sachets filled with any combination of dried ingredients, like chamomile, vanilla, lavender and jasmine are all said to help with better sleep. Whether that's true or not, your sleeping area will smell like a dream.

DIY room sprays can be used to make your home smell like a spring breeze. Fill a misting bottle with a 1-to-1 ratio of water to vodka, add 12 drops of lilac essential oil, and shake. If the scent isn't strong enough, add one additional drop at a time of lilac oil until you achieve the desired strength.

Freshen carpets naturally with a homemade mixture of 1/2 cup baking soda, 2 teaspoons dried rosemary and a few drops of lavender essential oil. To do so, finely chop the rosemary in a food processor, then add it to a plastic bag with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Sprinkle over carpets, let sit for 15 to 20 minutes and then vacuum.

Empty commercial plug-in fresheners with glass containers can be refilled with your choice of natural ingredients. Simply remove the wick, fill the container with a 1-to-1 ratio of your favorite essential oil and water, replace and you'll be ready to go.

Wreaths of eucalyptus, rosemary or bay laurel secured with wire and hung up in a bathroom are not just decorative; shower steam will trigger the release of their refreshing scents each time you bathe.

Pomander balls can remove and replace musty odors from drawers, closets and rooms. Make them by studding oranges with whole cloves. Spacing the cloves evenly and as close together as possible will give best results.
