1. Baking Soda
2. Your Fave Essential Oil
(I chose Orange Oil because we love citrus-y stuff in our house)
3. A mason jar
4. A hammer and nail or awl
(I had an awl in my craft 'tool' area, so I used that)
5. Your own label for the jar, if you'd like
6. Packing tape to attach that label.
So, put the baking soda in the mason jar--about 1/2 full. Then, add 15-20 drops of the Essential Oil. Screw the entire lid onto the jar, and hammer several holes in the top with the hammer an awl/nail. Add the label to the front and you are done.
There after I made a few of them and scattered them around the house, I found that they really did not help "freshen up" any home areas much. I wasn't pleased with the result, and will not make any more of these again. :(
Did anyone make their own air freshener that actually worked?
If so, let me know...
