-Fill glass jars about 1/3 full with baking soda.
-Add about 5-10 drops of essential oils.

Homemade, natural Febreze by Brown Thumb Mama

You’ll need:
-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.

** Essential oils and extracts, carrier oils and waxes, containers for your DIY products and much more can be found at Mountain Rose Herbs.
