Homemade, natural Febreze by Brown Thumb Mama
-A clean, empty spray bottle
-1 tablespoon baking soda
-2 cups distilled water
-10 drops essential oil (a single scent, or a mixture. Imagine the possibilities!)
-Measure the baking soda into a bowl and add the essential oil on top.
-Using a fork, mix the oil into the baking soda. This will help keep the oil suspended in the water.
-Put the baking soda/oil mixture into the spray bottle (a funnel helps) and top off with the distilled water. Label your bottle, shake before use, and breathe happy.
