I love this time of year… making gifts that (hopefully) keep on giving throughout the coming year.
This year’s makeover is an Air Freshener/Deodorizer…
minus all the synthetic chemicals that can make us sick, but full of essential oil, Aromatherapy goodness!
And as in years past… here is how you can make your own, all year round!
Coffee Filters (you can use recycled/brown for a greener project, but I had a huge pack of white that were being unused so I chose to up-cylce those!) (cost less than a penny each!)
Baking Soda (you can get a huge 13lb bag from Amazon or Costco for around $20)
Essential Oils ( I have used both NOW brand and recently have been trying out doTerra brand, NOW brand can be purchased from Amazon, doTerra needs to be purchased through a consultant) You can use any fragrance but my favorite this time of year are- peppermint, cinnamon, orange, lemon and frankincense
Scraps of Christmas Fabric cut into 1/2 inch wide strips by 8 inches long
Scoop 2-3 Tablespoons of Baking Soda into the center of the Coffee Filter, add a few drops of essential oils (2-3 drops) to the center of the baking soda pile. Gather up the sides of the filter and tie with a scrap of Christmas Fabric. Viola! Place in closets, car, kitchen, bath, drawer, smelly shoes…etc.. any where you want to have a nice smell or that needs to deodorized!
Merry Christmas 2012, from Babyfoodsteps!
