Fall is by far my favorite season. I covet the cool air after hot humid summers, and I absolutely love the return of pumpkins, mums, college football, tailgates, sweaters and cool nights around our fire pit. For years, I would run to the store to buy up all of the pumpkin and fall scented candles and air fresheners I could carry at the first sign of fall, but after doing tons of research, I just don't feel great about them any more. The chemicals used to make most of these scents can be extremely toxic, and y'all know that I love all things natural.

How do you make DIY air freshener?
For the fall version of DIY air freshener, start by adding 1 cup of water to a spray bottle.
Next, add ½ cup of vodka to your spray bottle. Vodka is an amazing cleaner and antibacterial agent, but it also works well to blend the essential oils with the water in air fresheners. You can use any grade of vodka you like, and there will be no vodka smell when you spray the air freshener.
To finish your air freshener, add 10 drops of cinnamon essential oils, 10 drops of orange essential oils and 5 drops of clove essential oils. Replace spray bottle lid and shake well before using!
This fall scented air freshening spray will cut through odors and leave your home smelling like fall. Just spritz around your home and enjoy! It's easy to make and would make a wonderful gift for a teacher, friend or family member paired with a cute fall tea towel and mini pumpkins!
