You only need 60 seconds and some very basic ingredients to mix up a batch of homemade
air freshener. (A household must when you have an animal menagerie like I do.)
The recipe:1 oz gin, vodka, or rubbing alcohol
6 oz filtered water
20 – 40 drops of essential oil, a few suggested oils are: peppermint, jasmine, citrus oils
They suggested using a combination of gin and jasmine oil, but I couldn't think of that
flavor profile when I was at the store. So, I bought vodka and spearmint. Spearmint. I've
never had spearmint air freshener before. Have you? It smells so fresh and clean. That's
just one of the bonuses of making your own products -- they can be whatever you want
them to be.
perfectly since the mixture will last for one month.
My main agenda when I decided to make this scenty spray was to replace Febreze as our
go to air freshener. Febreze, a Procter & Gamble product, is tested on animals. (You can
sign a petition to ask them to stop animal testing here.) It's a bummer, too. The stuff
works well, but I just can't support P&G as a consumer in good conscience. Febreze is
the only product of theirs I was still using, that I'm aware of ... and now, I'm P&G free!
I just love my new air freshener. It was super easy to make, not expensive and not tested
on plastic in the long run.
Please do attempt this at home.
