1000 Flowers for the Planet - #344 Make Your Own Air Freshener
If potpourri is not really your thing and you just want to be able to mask a bad smell as required, then make your own air freshener. Add a few drops of essential oil to a spray bottle filled with distilled water. You can try lavender, cinnamon, bergamot, cedar wood or orange – whichever your nose prefers. Of course, the Internet is a great source of recipes and ideas, including precise quantities if you need them, but experimenting for yourself is always a fun option.
By making your own air freshener you avoid using chemical based sprays that are costly and damaging to the environment. Nothing beats opening a window or two and letting the fresh air in, but when it’s too cold to do so, a homemade freshener will be far less damaging to the planet than something out of a can. Give it a go.
