Did you know that some of your favorite essential oils can be used as air fresheners? Wow, I know right, who knew!?! Yep, it is absolutely true. You can take your favs and make any room smell amazing. I will share a few tips on how to do this.
Place a few drops of your favorite essential oil onto a cotton ball and rub the corners of a room. I find this technique is most effective in small spaces like bathrooms and linen closets.
Invest in a diffuser. Yes this is probably my favorite way to use essential oils as an air freshener. Just add a few drops to some distilled water and plug it in. Most diffusers will last a few hours and the scents will last even longer. Also, don't forget to clean your diffuser once a week when you are using it regularly.
Get a simmer pot or just use the stovetop. A simmer pot works similar to the diffuser except it heats up and you can add other stuff to it like fruit peels and cinnamon sticks. Don't have a simmer pot, no worries, this same method can be used on your stovetop with a pot of boiling water. Simply fill a pot (almost full) with water, place on the stove until boiling, then reduce the heat to a simmer. You can be so creative here with your scents. I love adding apples and cinnamon sticks along with a few drops of cinnamon essential oil. I don't recommend using your everyday cooking pots for this, use that pot you were going to throw away because the handle broke or get one from your local thrift store.
Make your own spray freshener. In a glass or PET plastic spray bottle add distilled water, 100 proof vodka (rubbing alcohol or witch hazel) and 10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil. The ratio is 2 parts water to 1 part vodka. Shake well before each use and enjoy the scent you created just about anywhere!
