Air fresheners can be harsh and full of unknown ingredients. They can be quite expensive too. It's super easy to make your own if you follow this simple fresh smelling air freshener tutorial.
Things You'll Need
- 1 cup of baking soda
- 10 to 15 drops of essential oil of your choice
- Piece of decorative paper such as scrapbook paper, wallpaper or wrapping paper
- Small Mason jar with lid
Step 1: Add 1 cup of baking soda to a small Mason jar.
