How To Make An Air Freshener With Essential Oils

Say goodbye to store-bought synthetic air fresheners and welcome the natural, refreshing scents of essential oils into your home. In this guide, we will explore the art of creating your very own air freshener using the powerful and therapeutic properties of essential oils. Be prepared to unleash your creative side and learn how to make your home cleaner and fresher, all whilst enhancing your wellbeing with the benefits of aromacology.

Why Choose Essential Oils for Air Fresheners?

Essential oils, which are the concentrated essence of plants, have many beneficial properties that make them ideal for creating air fresheners. They offer:

  • Powerful and long-lasting scents
  • Chemical-free alternative to synthetic air fresheners
  • Aromatherapeutic benefits, promoting relaxation, focus, and energy
  • Antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties

Selecting the Right Essential Oils

When creating an essential oil air freshener, it's important to choose high-quality oils and consider the scents that will complement each other. Oshu Oils' expertly blended formulations are the perfect starting point. Here are some popular choices:

  • Relaxing: Lavender, Chamomile, Sandalwood, and Ylang Ylang
  • Invigorating: Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Tea Tree
  • Cheering: Orange, Lemon, and Grapefruit
  • Balancing: Frankincense, Geranium, and Rose

Creating Your Essential Oil Air Freshener

Now that you've chosen your oils, it's time to create your air freshener. Here are three simple methods:

Method 1: Basic Water-Based Air Freshening Spray

  1. Fill a 4oz (120ml) glass spray bottle with distilled water.
  2. Add 20-40 drops of your chosen essential oils (a blend of two or three works best).
  3. Add a teaspoon of alcohol or witch hazel (optional but helps with oil dispersion).
  4. Shake the bottle well before each use. Spray liberally in the air and enjoy!

Method 2: Baking Soda Air Freshener Jar

  1. Add 1 cup of baking soda to a wide-mouthed jar or small container.
  2. Mix in 20-30 drops of your preferred essential oils.
  3. Cover the jar with a breathable lid or fabric secured with a rubber band.
  4. Shake the jar gently to release the scent. Refresh with more essential oils as needed.

Method 3: Reed Diffuser Air Freshener

  1. Fill a small glass container with 1/4 cup of carrier oil (e.g. almond, grapeseed or safflower oil).
  2. Add 15-20 drops of your favorite essential oil blend.
  3. Stir gently to blend the oils.
  4. Place 4-6 reed diffuser sticks into the oil mixture.
  5. Flip the reeds every few days to refresh the scent.
