DIY Citrus Room Freshener...

If you love the citrus smell, lemon air freshener adds to your home. If you don't want to poison the atmosphere with chemical sprays then consider this natural alternative. Lemon air freshener is easy to make with only a few basic ingredients, including essential oil, water, and a spray bottle.


5 ml (1 tsp) baking soda (bicarbonate of soda).

5 ml (1 tsp) lemon juice, freshly squeezed.

2-3 drops essential oil (of choice).

500 ml (2 cups) filtered water.

Add the baking soda, lemon juice, essential oil and filtered water in a spray bottle. If you like, you can replace half of the lemon oil with another citrus oil, such as orange or lime. Add more or less oil depending on how strong you want the scent of your lemon air freshener.

Replace the lid on the spray bottle and shake well to combine the oil and water. Spritz the air whenever needed, and your new homemade lemon air freshener is ready.

Shake well before spraying.

Always face the spray nozzle away from your face, as the oil can irritate sensitive areas such as the eyes and nose.
