DIY: In the Home: Homemade Febreze



Buying fabric freshener all the time can get pretty expensive, not to mention exposing you and your family to all the unnecessary chemicals. So why not make your own? 
You will need:
  • an empty spray bottle
  • 1/2 cup of Everclear, vodka, rubbing alcohol or witch hazel
  • 4-6 drops essential oil (approx. 1/2 tsp)
  • Water

Add the 1/2 cup of Everclear, vodka, rubbing alcohol or witch hazel to your spray bottle. Add 1/2 teaspoon essential oil of choice (or a mixture of oils). Fill the remainder of the bottle with water. Shake and spray!! *If you choose to use rubbing alcohol, remember that it will leave a scent behind for a few minutes before dissipating. Do not use this spray around open flames.
Suggested Essential Oils:
Lavender – stress reduction
Cedar – a gentile woody smell to freshen up your closet and drawers and dissuade moths from making their homes in your wool sweaters. Ceder is also great for pet beds because fleas can’t stand the smell!
Mulberry – great around the holidays
Vanilla – great base scent if you plan to add another note.
