Making Air Fresheners with Essential Oils

Making your own home-made room sprays and air-fresheners to use around the home and office is a great way to enjoy and experiment with essential oils. These work great for getting rid of pet odors, kitchen odors, and other lingering smells. They’re especially nice to use when wanting to freshen up bathrooms or living areas of your home. Nothing beats the natural scents and fragrances of room sprays made with essential oils!
