3 Air Freshener Recipes to DIY at Home

Hi Crafters!

If there’s one thing we enjoy on any day, it’s scents we find pleasing and thus, it’s a definite that we’ve a bottle of air freshener or two nearby. Though, these bottles of air freshener aren’t the ones you can get commercially. We prefer to DIY ours using essential oils instead for added aromatherapeutic benefits (though, if you’re looking for more lasting scents, you can switch to fragrance oils instead πŸ˜‰).

“The following recipes incorporate Polysorbate-20, an emulsifier which is used to bring small amounts of oils into a watery environment and allow the oils and water to blend seamlessly.”
