Make Homemade Air Freshener with Essential Oils

Commercial air fresheners may smell good but can contain toxic chemicals.  People sensitive to these chemicals may have headaches, migraines or breathing issues.   Replacing traditional air fresheners with essential oils is a great way to keep your house smelling great but without the harmful chemicals.  

Essential oils can be purchased online or at your local craft store.  Essential oils come in a variety of great smelling scents such as lavender, orange, peppermint and lemon grass.  Using a diffuser is a great way spread essential oils throughout your house but its not neccessary.  I like this DIY way of making home air freshener because it in your house, car or clothes.
