DIY Air Freshener

It's about to smell all kinds of wonderful in here! No chemical air fresheners in this house! Air fresheners are some the worst offenders! They fill the air with pollutants and powerful neurotoxins!

Keep the air clean with houseplants, and smelling lovely with essential oils. You can use a diffuser, or fill a spray bottle with distilled water and add several drops of essential oil. While essential oils may seem expensive, a little goes a really long way and in the long run end up costing much less than the toxic cleaners we normally use.


  • 1 large pot filled with water
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 5 sprigs of rosemary
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • The peel from 1 large orange
  • Clove


  • Fill your stock pot 2/3 full of water and add in your choice of scents! 
  • Allow this to simmer all day, adding extra water as needed! 

Everyone always comments on how nice it smells!
