Better still, homemade fragrances don’t contain dangerous chemicals that can irritate those with asthma or similar conditions. Also, in most cases, the ingredients will cost you less than the price of commercial air fresheners and you can also customize the mixtures so you can make all kinds of different scent combinations.
