Essential Oil Room Air Freshener Spray Recipe

Make your own essential oil air freshening sprays with this fun and easy recipe! You can bottle this and give it as gifts, or just enjoy using it in your own house every day!

Ingredients:

1 cup distilled water
8 - 10 drops essential oil of your choice
spray bottle, with a fine mist setting
label

Pour the cup of distilled water into the spray bottle. Add the drops of essential oils and shake very well. Cap the bottle, and allow to sit for a few hours before using. Shake the bottle before each use to evenly distribute the scented oil throughout the water. Use the label to describe what sort of air freshener each bottle is. And be sure to use the fine mist setting on your bottle, so the spray will be distributed nicely in the air.

Here are some interesting ideas for wonderful air freshener sprays, but you can go ahead and create your own favorite blends using scents that you love the most! To use the following recipe, just add the recommended amounts of essential oil to the spray bottle with the distilled water, and follow the instructions as above. Please note that essential oils can vary in potency - for this reason, you can add or reduce the amounts of essential oil recommended in each recipe, if you find that the essential oil you've bought is either stronger or weaker than expected.

Cleaning SILVER

"Select a pot large enough to hold your biggest item of silverware. Fill with sufficient water to cover the largest item to be cleaned. Bring to a boil. Lightly crumple a good sized piece of aluminum foil and place in the pot; add a sprinkling of baking soda. Submerge the silverware into the boiling pot. Be sure to have tongs handy so that you can easily remove the piece when it looks clean. This will only take a minute or so. Remove and place in hot soapy water, rinse well and towel well to remove all water spots. Your silverware should be sparkling clean without the fuss and mess and elbow grease! Hope this is the answer you sought."

Carpet Freshener Recipes

1. Simply sprinkle on plain old baking soda, allow some time for it to neutralize odors, and then vacuum it up. Not only is it effective, but it's simple and inexpensive too.

2. "I too find Carpet Fresh expensive so in a plastic bag place about 400g Baking Soda and add a few drops of Essential Oil in a fragrance you like. Mix it about with your hands to blend the oil and break up any lumps and when well mixed place in the Carpet Fresh container and sprinkle the carpets with it before vacuuming."

Wintergreen Air Freshener

To add a touch of wonderful wintergreen scent, all you need are some cotton balls and some oil of wintergreen. (Find that in any pharmacy - ask the pharmacist if you can't find any & they'll likely order some in.) Dip the cotton balls in the oil of wintergreen and place near opened windows or anywhere out of sight where the air will circulate around them - smells minty and wonderul!

Veggie Wash

Easy! Just add a few tablespoons of vinegar to a bottle of clean, cold tap water. Shake well and spray on veggies and then wash under flowing clean water as usual. Helps to clean those fruits and veggies better than ever - and it's a lot less expensive than those commercial produce washes.
