You all know how I love my essential oils for everything from stress and anxiety to ear aches and skin issues – but another way that I LOVE to use my oils is for home cleaning and personal care products! They are wonderful for diaper wipes and cream, foaming hand soap, laundry soap, hand sanitizer and much more! So, today I want to share another one of my favorite DIY recipes that I use every single day, all day long – DIY All-Natural Air Freshener!
This air freshener works so much better than any commercial air freshener in the way that it actually removes the smell instead of just covering it up. Believe me. I’ve used them all with my home daycare. (think lots and lots of poopy diapers) Even if they say they remove smells – they don’t. They just cover them up with a horrible purfumey smell. It actually makes it worse, in my opinion. BUT, this homemade recipe does the opposite. It actually removes the smell and leaves a light fragrance that lasts just a little bit and isn’t overpowering at all.
I use this spray in the bathroom for those not so pleasant smells, the kitchen for cooking odors, in the playroom for stinky diapers and to just freshen up the house. What’s also great is that when you use Purify Oil, you’re actually killing germs and boosting your immune system in the process! So, I will even spray it on soft surfaces like couches, toys and pillows or hard surfaces like in the bathroom or kitchen to actually kill germs! Double whammy on those germs and odors! Purify is a combination of Lemon, Lime, Pine, Citronella, Melaleuca, and Cilantro essential oils. When diffused or sprayed, Purify Cleansing Blend can help eliminate odors from pets, cigarettes, mildew, trash, food, and much more.
Lemon is another great essential oil that I use. I just love how clean and fresh it smells! Check out all the ways you can use this versatile oil in my post 34 Ways to Use Lemon Essential Oil!
