Non-toxic DIY Air Freshener

We’ve all been to Bath and Body Works where the smells hit you before you even go into the store.  The shelves are lined with overpowering sprays filled with chemicals.  But most of the time, these sprays leave your house smelling like an over perfumed grandma.  Plus, those sprays are filled with toxic chemicals you continually inhale.  Here is an option for a cheap ($.50/per bottle) spray to get your house smelling great without the chemicals. 

Room spray


  • 2 cups water
  • 20-30 drops essential oil
  • 2 tbsp baking soda
  • spray bottle

Directions: Add ~25 drops of your favorite essential oil to the baking soda and stir to combine.  Lemon and peppermint are my favorites or try lavender.  Pour the baking soda mixture into the bowl of water, mix well.  Then funnel into a spray bottle. Give it a good shake and then spray away.
