Nothing is more unpleasant than entering your home and smelling last night’s food (which was undoubtedly something with onions or fish to make it extra pungent.) In this situation, you would probably reach for your air freshener from the store, but you might want to reconsider.
Although these store-bought air fresheners do an excellent job of freshening the air in your home for around 30 seconds, they are extremely harmful to your health. Users of air fresheners are more likely to have congestion, headaches, and even a higher risk of depression! But even with all these drawbacks, the odors always seem to be so uniform. Making your own natural air fresheners benefits the environment, your health, and gives you an opportunity to express your creativity.
Here’s how to eliminate odors in your home organically.
My Top Picks for Natural Air Fresheners One of the best, simplest, and CHEAPEST ways to deodorize your entire home is to simmer any combination of preferred natural smells in a pot with about eight cups of water. Starting with dry orange or lemon peels or cinnamon sticks seasoned with a little sage is what I advise. This will almost immediately fill the entire house with a wonderful aroma. Simply compost the peels or the sticks once you’re through.
-An age-old trick is to place an opened box of baking soda in any space that need significant odor relief.
To deodorize naturally and quickly, combine white vinegar, lemon juice, and water in a spray bottle. You can rapidly detect a difference if you spritz a few times in each room.
Have you ever created a potpourri yourself? Additionally, you get to choose the ingredients and you may do this for a fair price. Once more, you can use old orange or lemon peels for this (just make sure they are dry), as well as cinnamon sticks, mint leaves, and really anything else that is dry and fragrant. Add some essential oils, which are readily accessible at most health food stores, to the fragrance to make it even more complex.
