4 Homemade Natural Air Freshener Recipes

Who hasn’t used Febreze or another kind of store bought air freshener? I used to use them all the time, until I learned there are a ton of chemicals used to make the scents – nothing natural about it!

So those had to go! But I still like having something that I can spray in a room to help freshen it up. It’s nice to freshen up your home right before you have company (or just because you like it!).

I decided to make my own room freshener with my essential oil collection. It’s super simple and no chemicals whatsoever! I’ve come up with four combinations that are natural and refreshing.

You will need:

Glass spray bottle (essential oils will eat through plastic)


Vodka or Vanilla Extract (Rubbing Alcohol also works)

Essential oils


The formula I used when creating my air freshener recipe is one tbsp of Vodka/Vanilla Extract and about 18-20 drops of essential  oils per ½ cup of water. The Vodka or Vanilla Extract helps dry the mixture quicker. Depending on which scent I’m going with, I’ll switch between the two.

Pick up the essential oils starter kit I’m using for only $55!
