Make your own natural air-freshener

Many of the products we use to clean our homes or workplace contain substances and chemicals that are detrimental to human health and to the environment.

Air fresheners are no different. Have you looked at the ingredients list on one of those bottles recently?

Luckily, it's easy to make your very own air freshener that you can use to make any room smell wonderful.

This recipe uses just three ingredients, and it's a natural way to remove odour.

The recipe

  1. 30 ml gin, vodka or rubbing alcohol
  2. 150 ml filtered water
  3. 20 – 40 drops of essential oil, a few suggested oils are: peppermint, jasmine, citrus oils

This air-freshener mix will keep for at least a month. Keep it pre-mixed in a reused spray bottle in your workplace.
