So, last week I shared my recipe for All Natural Fabric Refresher Spray, which is great for neutralizing odors in the air and fabrics, but sometimes you need something that will absorb odors without being so obvious, right? Today I’m sharing a recipe for Homemade Air Freshener / Odor Absorber…you will not believe how easy it is to make, and it seriously helps pull the odor out of the air in the stinkiest of rooms. These are great for bathrooms, baby rooms (next to the diaper pail), kitchen, closets and anywhere you may notice moisture or stink in the air!
You will need a 4oz mason jar, ½ cup of baking soda, 15 drops of essential oils in your scent of choice and some scrapbook paper or wrapping paper.
Now take ½ cup of baking soda and place it inside of the mason jar.
Now add 15 drops of essential oils. I used lavendar oil.
Now place the paper circle that you cut out into the mason jar lid, leaving the metal insert out. Place the lid onto the jar.
Now, gently shake the container until the essential oils and baking soda blend together.
Take a sewing needle and poke holes in the paper.
That’s it folks! Now place in your bathroom or room of choice! It will not only leave a nice faint scent in the air, but the baking soda will also absorb any stink or moisture in the air as well! Plus, it’s cute, and you can totally customize it with the paper of your choice so it will fit in with any room decor!
