15 DIY Air Fresheners to Make Your Home Smell Good
Here are some tips for making your own homemade air fresheners:
- Use ingredients you have. Most of these recipes call for essential oils; so use some that you have. You don’t have to buy the same ones in the recipe.
- Mix and match to make scents that you love! The great thing about making your own air fresheners is that you can make your own scents! Don’t love spices in your scents? Than just stick with floral or citrus oils.
- Keep an open mind. Some of these air fresheners won’t work as well as the commercial ones because they don’t contain the chemicals that make them really strong. Keep an open mind and think about why you are choosing to make your own: more cost-effective, better for your family, less toxic.
