My Five DIY Air Freshener Sprays

Hi Friends,

Welcome back:)

If you are new Welcome to my site! Please subscribe so you can be one of the first to know when I post a new article!

Essential oils

I love essential oils. They are amazing in so many different aspects! Way too many to list especially since each type of essential oils has its own aspects.

Something that you should know is “Pure” Essential Oils are very strong. Strong enough to deteriorate plastic. With that being said, you should probably use glass or aluminum to store pure essential oils. If it is in fact true that essential oils may deteriorate plastic, my first thought is: The oil is deteriorating the plastic, some or most plastic contains carcinogens why would I want to put a product that might contain carcinogens on myself or in my surroundings. Isn’t that the whole reason why we choose to use essential oils and not modern day medicine and other toxic chemicals? If you are looking for a great glass spray bottle, and one that I personally use and love, click here!

Using homemade Air Freshener

When using these homemade air freshener, do not spray directly onto fabric as some oils stain. Also more is not always better. you will only need a spray or two.

  • I have never used these oils before. I hear a lot about them though. I might have to try some out. I’m sure they smell amazing.

    • Essential oils are amazing. and the scents are so exotic

  • Stephanie Gilbert

    I have been wanting to use oils more. Saving these to make later.

    • Awesome they are great! Let me know how you like them

  • This is such a great idea. I’d so much rather freshen the air without using all those toxic chemicals around my home. I like that you’ve posted different ingredient lists for several types of freshening needs.

  • Divya Budhraja

    I love making my own household products with my essential oils! Not only are they non-toxic, but they smell great too!

    • Yes they do. I love them. I could not live without them. I do not know how I did for over 30 years!

  • I have never tried making my own air freshener…I haven’t even thought about it but this seem to be a very cost effective method. I find it easier to just buy them already made instead of having to go look for these fragrances. This can be a great business to venture into if you are not already doing it!

    • Thanks Shevy. Most commercial air fresheners are filled with chemicals.

  • The diffusers are by far some of my favorites to keep around the house. I also like the ones that spritz scents every 30 seconds.

  • blckberry13

    Making your own air freshener is a great idea 💡. Probably safer too

  • I didn’t know was so easy to make homemade air fresheners. I’m going to try that relaxing spray recipe.

  • Valerie CottageMakingMommy

    I love making my own healthy air fresheners too. It makes such a difference. These are all great blends.

    I have not used essential oils much. I am highly impressed about all of the things you can make with them. I know they have amazing properties. I just feel like I don’t understand them well enough.
