These homemade air freshener recipes are awesome

I USED TO BE LIKE A LITTLE KID IN A CANDY STORE…

Whenever I’d visit the air freshener aisle at the grocery store.

I’d rub my hands together in delight as I perused the hundreds of brightly-colored packages begging for me to place them in my cart.

The scents always sounded so tantalizing… Island Delight, Fresh Lavender, Strawberry Fields, Boysenberry Splash. homemade air freshener recipes

I’d excitedly pick a few different options and hurry home to try them out in my little farmhouse…

And I was disappointed every time.

Not only did the scents never quite match their descriptions, but they smelled fake and overly perfumey… And they gave me an instant headache.;

The final straw was when I found out my fake-smelling commercial air fresheners also contained nasty chemicals. At that point, I just decided to just have a boring smelling house forever…

Thankfully, I didn’t have to suffer for long.

I’ve since learned there are a myriad of ways to make your home smell cozy and welcoming, without pumping your nostrils full of chemicals.

Essential oils are my favorite trick for making this possible. As you know, I have a diagnosed essential oil diffuser addiction, and I’m always experimenting with other smelly options in my house, like my DIY essential oil reed diffuser.

These homemade air freshener recipes are awesome because:

a) They are all-natural and allow you to experience the health benefits of essential oils at the same time.

b) They don’t smell fake like commercial air fresheners do.

c) It’s cheap to mix them up.

d) You can play around with scents and find what you like the best.

e) Do I really need to give you more reasons? Just go make some DIY air fresheners already!
