I love keeping a clean home. One that looks nice and smells good when you walk in.
For a good smelling home, I am all about candles. But did you know that all candles come with a burn time? That’s right. I learned this when I burned a candle over night and noticed soot in my child’s nostrils. Her doctor explained that on a candle label it will generally say do not burn more than 2-3 hours! Well. My bad. I know I’ve left candles burning much longer and I never realized it could start releasing soot and chemicals into the air that could potentially be harmful. 🚫
So what now…? I wanted to be careful about what I sprayed through the air now that I have more than myself to worry about. So I learned how to make my own air freshener. It’s an easy 3 ingredient recipe, and chances are, you already have it all in your home! 🏡
You will need…
2 cups of water
1 tbs of Baking Soda
12-20 drops of Essential Oil (your choice of scent, and I used 14 drops)
In a bowl, mix the baking soda and oil together until its thoroughly blended together. Add the water and stir until all the baking soda is dissolved. Then transfer to a spray bottle. So easy and so much better than spraying harsh chemicals into your breathing air! ❤️✨
