Everyone loves a nice smelling space, but unfortunately so many of those lovely smelling air refresheners truly aren’t so lovely at all. Most air fresheners actually contain hormone-disrupting chemicals (like VOCs) and since disrupting your hormones is definitely not on a healthy agenda, I highly suggest making a switch to natural fragrances. One really easy way to make a delicious smelling home fragrance involves just 2 ingredients: essential oil + water.
Combine in a spray bottle:
- 40-45 drops total of your favorite essential oil(s)
- 1 cup H2o
And that’s it! You now have your very own homemade, all natural air freshener to mist around your rooms, on your sheets, etc.
Some essential oil combinations I highly recommend (all essential oils mentioned are under $10 per 0.5 fl oz bottle and a little goes a really long way):
- sweet orange + cinnamon
- lavender + sage
- peppermint + tangerine
Your home will smell lovely and your mood will be positively impacted by the aromatherapy benefits of the essential oils — definitely a win-win!
