How to have your house smell aah-mazing.....without plug-ins!
If  you are looking for a super simple DIY that's cheap, easy, and can help take care of odors without endangering your health, read on!

I'l be honest, I'm not a huge DIY kinda person, but there are certain things that are so easy to make and so inexpensive compared to what you can buy (and not a hindrance to your health) that even I make them-lol.

This is one of those things:

DIY Air Freshener 

You will need:

A clean glass jar with a lid that you can poke holes in. I like to recycle my jelly jars. Mason jars, baby food jars, peanut butter jars, pickled ginger get the idea, any jar will do! worst case scenario, you can buy jars on Amazon. 

Baking soda-enough to fill the jar.

Essential Oil(s) of your choice(remember quality matters, use premium essential oils (not sure if ya have premium oils?  Ask your essential oil company the following questions:

I like and use Young Living Essential Oils! In fact, I’ve been to several of their farms and actually helped plant trees!

Now simply add baking soda to whatever jar you have, add essential oils (maybe 20 drops to half cup baking soda, but feel free to use less or more, depending on your preference. 

Put the lid on and shake well, then take the lid off and poke several holes in it with an you have an air freshener that you can stash in strategic places in your house.

If you want to get really fancy, you could even decorate your jar! Remember to refresh your oils from time to time or when you feel the aroma is less.
