How to Make Deodorizing Spray Using Natural Ingredients

Save

Before purchasing a commercial air freshener, consider several other, more practical, and probably cheaper, ways to fight unwanted odors. You might try opening the window and allowing some fresh air to waft in. Or you might consider buying some indoor plants to help keep the air inside your home clean. Better yet, you might consider going on a hunt--for the actual source of the smell. But if all of these endeavors fail, there's another way--and it's all natural: make a deodorizing spray. Here's how.

Things You'll Need

  • Spray bottle
  • Lavender oil
  • Bergamot oil
  • Clove oil
  • Peppermint oil
  • Vodka
  • Distilled water
  • Pour half a cup of distilled water into a regular spray bottle.

  • Add half a cup of vodka to the contents of the spray bottle. Shake the bottle once or twice to mix the vodka and water thoroughly.

  • Add 8 drops of lavender oil to the contents, then shake the spray bottle twice.

  • Add 4 drops of bergamot oil to the contents, then shake the spray bottle twice.

  • Add 4 drops of clove oil to the contents, then shake the spray bottle twice.

  • Add 2 drops of peppermint oil to the contents, then shake the spray bottle vigorously for 20 seconds.

  • Spray the areas where you feel the air might need some cleansing 5 to 6 times. Not only will the air be freshened, but a pleasant aroma will linger on afterwards.

Tips & Warnings

  • Store the natural deodorizing spray in a bottle. It will last for years!
  • Be careful when spraying that you do not get any of the mixture into your eyes.
