DIY Aromatherapy Air Freshener: A Quick, Economical & Natural Way to Freshen Your Home! by Holly Budde
Odors can build up in your home, and sometimes you need to do something special to freshen it. Does your home need a good freshening? Here's what I do: Boil citrus and herbs for a quick fix. In the picture below, I'm using lemons, oranges and basil. Here how:
- Boil the mixture for a few minutes.
- Turn down the heat and let it simmer on the stove.
It's an economical way to have your house smell fresh and clean. I do this often, especially this time of year when the windows aren't open as much and odors accumulate. I find that citrus works best, and I switch up the herbs. My favorites are basil, lemongrass and mint. But you can use whatever you like, such as:
- tropical fruits
- cinnamon sticks
- star anise
- orange peels
- rose petals
