Inexpensive DIY Air Fresheners To Make Your Home Smell Sweet

Why do I need to make my own air freshener?

The market is filled with air fresheners. Choosing one that suits your needs can be tricky and expensive. Many commercial air fresheners contain harsh chemicals and pollutants that can irritate those with allergies, sensory sensitivities or breathing issues such as asthma. They can also be dangerous to pets and small children. Some have even been deemed as fire hazards and pulled from shelves. Then there is the issue of finding the right scent. The scents of commercial air fresheners can be too strong, too weak or have a chemical odor, and most of them are not long lasting.

These DIY air fresheners will instantly transform any room at your home into an oasis of your choice. The possibilities for personalization are only limited by your creativity. To really maximize the effectiveness of the scents, try pairing essential oils–such as vanilla and lavender. Another great trick is to use essential oils with stronger scents in places with heavier more pungent odors such as the bathroom or near the cat’s litter box.
