DIY Air Freshener with Plant Therapy Essential Oils
Over the last few posts I have shown you two simple recipes, a DIY fabric softener and a DIY all purpose cleaner, using the Plant Therapy Essential oils and a few common ingredients. Today, I will show you another easy recipe, this one for a delightful Air Freshener.
This recipe is eco-friendly and works just as well as its commercial counterparts. You do not have to use the exact same Essential oils I have chosen to use, although I did take into consideration each of the oils cleansing and therapeutic properties. It is up to you what scents you prefer, and keep in mind certain oils blend better with others.
Check out individual Essential oil descriptions on the Plant Therapy website for suggested blends. Also, how much oil you choose to add is completely up to you. I do recommend that you always start with just a few drops, as certain oils can be quite potent. Add more as needed.
DIY Air Freshener Recipe
Lavender, Lemon and Sweet Orange essential oils (or those of your choice)
Distilled or Spring Water
High Proof Alcohol such as vodka (OPTIONAL)
4oz. spray bottle with a fine mist setting
Pour 3 ounces of water into a clean spray bottle ( or if using the optional alcohol mix 1.5 oz. water and 1.5 oz. alcohol)
Add 30 to 40 drops of essential oil (I used 15 drops Sweet Orange, 9 drops Lavender and 6 drops Lemon) You may want to try 20 drops at first.
Shake well to mix (this is why you only make 3 ounces of liquid, so you have room to shake the liquid)
Let sit for 24 hours before using to ensure you have the scent correct (not too weak for your taste). Also, don’t forget to label the bottle with its contents and date. You can also tie a ribbon around the bottle, or add a printed sticker to make it pretty!
Store in dark, cool and dry place. Shake well before each use, then mist lightly, be careful to not allow it to fall on furniture or into food or drinks.
I like to spray my comforter, the curtains and straight up into the air.
